Been a bit quiet on the blog front lately! Between work and some personal stuff things have been a bit cray, but I'm back on the map after a brief hiatus. To ease back into things, I'm sharing a recent addition to my vintage collection, this cute southwest-inspired top that came c/o Mothball

Feeling (butter)flyyyyy in this under-$50 denim jacket. *New Post!* #talesfromthethrift

I'm getting back into the swing of things after taking a week-long trip to Italy, which was so action-packed, I'm kinda feeling like I need a second vacation just to recover. (Trip recap coming soon!) Luckily, I was able to get some much needed R&R over the weekend and enjoy some surprisin

Making winter layers less boring with a cute hi-low hem top ($24) from Make Me Chic! #makemechic #MMCstyle #talesfromthethrift

There's nothing more classic than a white button-up, but sometimes old classics are more fun with a twist. Make Me Chic recently sent over this white collared top with a hi-low hem ($24), and I'm loving the drama and volume it brings to an otherwise everyday look. So much more fun than my usual wint...

Sharing some cozy faux-shearling c/o Make Me Chic + linking to the PERFECT skinny jeans from Mango. *New Post!* #makemechic #talesfromthethrift

Temps have dropped again here in NYC, which makes it so much harder to A., get outta bed in the morning, and B., look like you actually care about what you wear. I've been relying on my trusty puffer coat (which I thrifted ages ago and is still holding up strong!) for the past week, but since the gi...

I'm all about the bell sleeves this winter. Linking to a $23 ruffled find from Make Me Chic + the cutest cabbie hat for under $7! *New Post* #makemechic #MMCstyle #talesfromthethrift

We're wrapping up January and just kicked off the Year of the Rooster, but I'm also gonna go out on a limb and call 2017 the official Year of the Sleeve. Exaggerated, detailed and ruffled sleeves have been popping up all over the place lately, and I'm loving it. There's something so fun and festive…

Brightening up this Monday morning with a pop of (thrifted!) red. *New Post!* #talesfromthethrift

Anyone else tend to over-schedule their weekend, and then end up totally drained Monday morning?? I definitely overdid it on the extracurriculars, with dinner and drinks on Friday, the Women's March in NYC (which was amazing, btw!) and an impromptu dinner party on Saturday, and then blog stuff and e...

@Shein is killing it with the cute sweaters! Linking to another $25 gem, feat. a pair of perfectly ruffled sleeves. *New Post!* #shein #talesfromthethrift

Another day, another $25 sweater find from Shein! Along with yesterday's embroidered find, Shein was kind enough to send over this identically-priced pink sweater with ruffled sleeves, and I've been wearing it non-stop since. The ruffles add the perfect amount of volume (just don't try to squeeze th...

Hopping on the embroidery bandwagon with this $25 sweatshirt from SHEIN. *New Post!* #shein #talesfromthethrift

I've really been digging the embroidery trend that's been everywhere lately, and this sweatshirt from Shein is the perfect way to hop on the bandwagon without spending a fortune. The rugged shade of army green contrasts perfectly with the dainty floral details, and it's an ideal pick for those days…

Sharing my budget-friendly Bangkok guide on the blog, feat. all my fave sights, food finds and a few travel tips! *New Post* #talesfromthethrift

Hey guys! I took off on a mini-vacay to Bangkok, Thailand last month, and while I was able to share some fun travel moments on the 'Gram, I wanted to put together a more in-depth travel itinerary for anyone that might be interested. I definitely scoured the web for tips and blog posts prior to take-...

Styling this super-cozy, under-$40 faux suede coat from Make Me Chic on the blog! *New Post* #MakeMeChic #MMCstyle #talesfromthethrift

Now that the holidays are all wrapped up, the only thing we have left to look forward to is this cold winter being OVER. Things have been fairly gloomy here in NY, and if it wasn't for my huge collection of cozy coats, I don't know what I'd do. Speaking of which, I recently added a new oversized fau...

Kicking off the new year with a couple of my fave shopping finds from Bangkok! *New Post* #talesfromthethrift

Hard to believe it's 2017! Kicking off the new year with a couple of new additions to my closet, both of which I scored for super cheap while visiting Thailand. Seriously people, the shopping in Thailand was seriously insane--better than anywhere I've traveled so far. For example, I scored this ador...

Hard to believe it's almost 2017. Linking to this New Year's-ready gold body-con set (currently on sale!) from Tobi! #ShopTobi #talesfromthethrift

Things always get so busy around the holidays that New Year's kinda sneaks up on me. I get the gift shopping done, wrap everything up, organize family dinners and then, when I think it's finally time to kick back and relax, everyone's asking about your New Year's Eve plans and my stress levels start...

Back from a holiday break! Linking to this mesh-shoulder sweatshirt (just $21!) from Make Me Chic on the blog. *New Post!* #talesfromthethrift #makemechic #MMCstyle

While we missed out on having a white Christmas in NYC this year, I was able to enjoy a little snow while visiting family upstate ahead of the holidays. Of course, when it gets that cold, the only thing I want to do is throw on a ratty old sweatshirt (most of which are left over from my college days...

Give me all velvet everything forever, please. In love with this blush velvet bodysuit from Tobi--and it's currently on sale for under $30! *New Post!* #ShopTobi #talesfromthethrift

One of my absolute favorite trends this winter has been the never-ending supply of velvet. I mean, I'm just wondering why everything hasn't been covered in velvet sooner! So it's no surprise I was instantly obsessed with this blush velvet bodysuit from Tobi, which combines all the things I love abou...
