ThriftyGlam OOTD: Softened Edges

        Necklace: TJMaxx / Blazer: LaROK {old} / Tee: Mindy Mae's Market-Click Here / Clutch: Francesca's / Destroyed Denim: Target-Click Here / Shoes: Target-Click Here
 I've been following Mindy Mae's market on instagram and absolutely love the sentiment behind this graphic tee "Kindness is always stylish." Their IG account is always running great promos and specials and one day it was discounted and proceeds would benefit an employee's medical expenses. Good cause and a fun shirt- win-win! Since the shirt is ultra girly, I decided to pair it with a LaROK blazer boasting embellished shoulders and a satin tuxedo-esque lapel. To keep with the edginess I decided on this statement necklace (reminiscent of a J. Crew design) from T.J.Maxx.

The denim was a "stretch" for me (no, seriously they are so stretchy and comfy) because I never buy light wash denim anymore and I wanted to ease myself into the destroyed denim look. The last time I went all out destroyed denim was the summer before I started college; enter (surprise) light wash, super ripped up, faux grass and paint stained jeans from Abercrombie & Fitch. They were so well destroyed that I was at a diner in NYC with my mom walking to the ladies room and a woman we passed said quite loudly "oh my, did you see her pants, she must be poor." Little did she know those jeans were actually quite pricey for what they were.

Sterling Marcasite Ring: Vintage
 Lesson learned, on the pricey factor- I was strolling through target and came upon these jeans- tried them on- oh how easily they fit and brought them home with me. $29.99 for a pair of jeans- I can sit well with that. Low and behold the VERY next day I get the "weekly ad" email from Target and all denim is 40% off- back the next day, I got my price adjustment for $17.99 jeans- woot!

Faux Suede Ankle Strap Pumps: Mossimo

Sally Hansen: Chrome Nail Polish

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear where your favorite pair of distressed denim is from. Do you prefer skinny or boyfriend?



  1. GORG! And I don't have a fave pair of distressed denim, but you make me want to go find a pair :)

    1. Thank you so much, lover! Target is a great place to start if you just wanna try the trend and not spend lots of $$$. XoXo!
