Fashionista: Thinking thrift for monochromatic pink
I don’t know why, but I always thought of soft pink as an early spring color, but I’m rethinking this and embracing pastels for any season.
On a recent Goodwill thrifting trip, I was on a mission to pull together a monochromatic pink look for late fall as it transitions to winter.
The first piece is this draw-dropping moto jacket with faux fur. You know I love my boa feathers! I’m feeling that same vibe with this jacket. The sheen of this jacket makes it a standout. I already can hear my sisters, “You did NOT get that at Goodwill?” Oh, yes, I did! This GW Fashionista thrifts all her fabulous finds.
I found the comfy, warm sweater I needed to wear underneath the outer layer with this angora-like turtleneck. It’s as soft as can be and washes wonderfully. It’s shorter in the front and longer in the back, which provides so many options on what to wear with it.
I found the perfect thing with this incredible pair of pink jeans. I’ve never seen this color before and am so drawn to them. To pull the outfit together, I found these pretty pale pink suede shoes with a crisscross strap.
So, GW shoppers, get out there and find your pink look! You will be blushing about the savings.
