Thrift Style Thursday // Pinspired

A few weeks ago I picked up this pair of burgundy straight leg skinnies from Suzy Shier for $26. I've been seeing jewel tones all over Pinterest, and I am thankful that hues of the most vibrant and rich colours are back in our wardrobes. These pants also offered the perfect base for Pinterest inspired everything. 

In my case, everything but the pants are thrifted: pleather and zippered Ricki's jacket? Salvation Army; striped Olsen tank and vintage waist belt? Talize; 80s black leather vintage Hudson's Bay boots? Value Village. It's quite the turn around from last week's TST, isn't it. 

Sadly, though, I don't have a lot to say about this outfit other than the boots still smell of leather, and I have the exact shade of lipstick to match the pants. 

Maybe it's that I don't feel the need to justify my choices to fit the theme - each item is pretty self-explanatory. As such, my sass seems to have disappeared. What if this is a sign?! What if my blogging sass comes from breaking rules and stretching themes and when all is said and done and I have followed the rules exactly, my humour, nay, my personality, falls into line too? 

And here I was under the impression that it had something to do with my haircut. 

Ah well, live and learn Pinteresters, live and learn.
