Thrifty Thursday: Andrea’s Closet

This is part two of Shopping her Closet. The first post about my friend Andrea was over a month ago. Have a look at it for style ideas and thrifty tips. Andrea is looking at the clothes she already has and is creating neat new remixes. She’s inspired me to do the same.

Picking up where we left off, here’s Andrea in a great monochromatic look with a cute hat. She knows what works for her.

Hat, top, jeans, and scarf: Ross Dress for Less
MIA boots: DSW
Necklace: Chico’s

Check out her fantastic boots! I love the button detailing.

In this next look, Andrea returns to a black, white, and red color palette. I love how bold–yet classic–it is. The yellow bag is really unexpected too.

Pants: Nordstrom Rack
Coat: Mexx (Canada)
Jewelry: Fred Meyer

Seattle weather can quickly turn cold and rainy–and get nice just as fast. That’s why I love how that outfit looks great with or without the jacket. In Washington, outerwear is definitely part of our everyday wear, so why not think of it as part of the outfit?

Case in point: Andrea’s red coat. It’s adorable. This might be my favorite look. It’s coordinated but not too matchy. The neutrals of the hat and boots are different but they work together really well.

Top, jacket, and jeans: Ross Dress for Less
Earrings: Fred Meyer
Mia boots: DSW
Coat: Macy’s

This is a hot, retro look. Andrea looks sophisticated in these elegant colors. The faux fur detailing glams up the outfit. Remove the coat, and she’s ready for work. Put it back on and she can to dinner and a show. I love the versatility of this.

Skirt: Club Monaco via Goodwill

Boots: Nordstrom Rack

The photo shoot with Andrea was a lot of fun and I learned new ways to remix clothes and get a bargain. I hope you got some ideas too. Maybe we’ll see Andrea in her own blog soon!

  1. I love Mexx, and those black and white pants are to die for.

  2. The boots! Super sexy! And the layers of the outfits ARE the way to go. I love the clean classic lines with the bold colors and prints. And you said she’s from Seattle? Someone just told me nobody dresses up there- now I see that is so untrue. She has great style!

  3. Andrea’s outfits look great and I love the boots with buttons! So glad to see the cuffs and collar are faux fur!!! That’s cool without cruel.

    If you don’t wear fur, you don’t need to watch this, just share the video info. If you do wear fur, even “just a little” on collars and cuffs – please watch this video!! It is very difficult and heart-breaking to watch but hopefully, as human beings we care enough to stop this needless cruelty to our animal friends.


Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
