It's been a while since we've had a throwback outfit. I blame my trip to Florida and the holidays. But here we are with an outfit from over 5 years ago. This blazer was one of my first designer "splurges" on eBay. I think I paid less than $30 for it back in 2010. I added in my Gucci aviators and dark purple Chloé Faye to update the look a bit. But everything else is the same.

Tee: Zara, Blazer: Moschino Cheap & Chic (eBay), Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Heels: Alexander Wang 'Freja' (The Outnet), Scarf: Yarnz c/o NET-A-PORTER, Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay), Sunglasses: Gucci

This shirt may be one of my best thrifting buys from a couple years ago. I paid ONE DOLLAR for it and have worn it at least 10 times, which means it's cost per wear is 10 cents per wear at the most. Insanity!  And this Moschino jacket was one of my first few designer eBay finds in 2008 or 2009! Ahh, memories.

This outfit was a copycat of one of Natalie Suarez's outfits from back in the day, hence my weird face...trying to match her cool 'I don't care look' and failing. And look how long my hair was...a little TOO long if you ask me, and that's saying something because I'm not a fan of shorter hair on myself.  Sadly I don't have the jeans anymore but every other piece in this outfit was still in my closet!

I think the times where my Dad can take photos during the week are at an end. I got to my parents house at 4:50 and we needed the flash...NOOOO! But at least on the weekends he can still take them for me. Otherwise it's back to the tripod during the week.

Remember how I said I have a blazer addiction? This is the proof.  Last month I made this fun video featuring my blazers, 17 of them.  Since creating it I bought 2 more: a Marc Jacobs denim jacket and a PBM over-sized camel hair blazer...oops! At least they were both $10. Enjoy! (My favorite part is right before the credits ;) )

And, for your viewing pleasure, here are all the outfits from my blazer challenge. (a couple are missing, but this is pretty much all of them.)  You will see a lot of duplicate items in here as well. I would have liked to have added skirts into the mix but I am too lazy to wear them on the train (gotta be more careful when sitting and getting up, and I hate being ladylike) ;)

Since I've been home sick all week there won't be a This Week in Fashion post today.  Instead I thought I would show how I've styled pieces in my wardrobe in different ways.  My philosophy is - what is the point of buying clothes if you won't wear them over and over? There's no sense in buying something to wear only once, except maybe a Wedding dress ;)

There are obviously a lot more where these came from, so perhaps I'll do another one of these posts in the future.  You can also see more duplicates within each of the looks, so have fun finding them!

Say "hello" to my adorable new Marc by Marc Jacobs tee, it was a gift from Santa!  For it's debut I decided to try something a little crazy and paired it with this lace skirt, sparkly blazer and bright blue heels!  If only I didn't have to wear tights, I hate that they contrast so much with the shoes.  Even though this outfit is full of designer pieces, it isn't expensive because they were thrifted, gifted or ebay-ed!  Who doesn't love a good deal? They make my life.

Today is the last day of November...where has the year gone?!  It's strange how as you get older the time goes by so quickly.  This week seems to be the week of burgundy, except for Thursday, ha ha. Actually, I take that shoes were burgundy on Thursday too!

It is starting to get really cold out outside and signs of Christmas are beginning to appear all around! I love it!  Unfortunately our office seems to think it's Summer and we were dying of heat all week.

This was my first full week* at work and boy am I pooped! Getting up at 5:40am and getting home at 8pm is not fun, but on the plus side I love my job!  We are so busy so I can barely breathe during the day, but it's fun so it doesn't matter.

I really need to get some more walking shoes, I always find myself wearing my vanEli flats (see Wednesday's outfit) because they don't hurt at all during my 1.5 mile walks to/from the train station.  My other flats start hurting after walking too far, which is annoying because they are usually fine when I wear them all day. They just rub my feet weirdly while I'm doing my "super fast to catch the train" walk.  Anyone have suggestions for good walking shoes? (not sneakers)

*When I say full week I mean four days because I have Fridays off (for now.)
