Too Thrifty Chicks


Style Notes: A Touch of Halloween at Work


I work in what would be considered a “creative environment,” so I pretty much wear what I want to work and this whimsical sweater and our nearness to Halloween, left me thinking, “Why not?” I totally thrifted this sweater from the boys’ section at B. Thrifty on the last excursion with A. Reese and layered it over a denim shirt from Old Navy.

No tacky Halloween pumpkins and loud colors here. The sweater has these small skull and cross bones, which aren’t really noticeable until you’re right up on me and the gray color makes it subtle and sophisticated.

Purple pencil skirt, re-purposed from a church lady suit that I once owned, blue green tights, black Nine West booties and accessories round out the look.

  2. Love the sweater. My favorite jacket is a pea coat from the boy’s section at the thrift store. Cute blog, Reese and Reese’s friend!
