Modern-tinged retro-chic gets a colorful (and a very fuzzy) update.


Don't kill me yet – yes, I've been alarmingly absent, but please don't give up on me. I've missed you dearly but I haven't been idle; there are an awful lot of new things coming soon to Nothing Short Of Chic (subscribe to my email list if you want to know more about everything going on). Of course, you can't see those amazing things yet and I don't want to spoil the surprise, so for now, let me just offer you this fabulous way to wear the skirt and heels you're dying to pull out for spring but are apprehensive of the cold. Feel free to add a fabulous pleather trench or (faux) fur duster if you fear the chill.

I have been thrift shopping a lot lately (it's one of my favorite things to do!) and the hat, skirt, and heels are all new-to-me (the jacket was thrifted too, but a while ago). It's amazing what great quality you can get in an out-of-the-way boutique - the hat is flawless and was only $1, for example. Together, the skirt and heels were $10 and required only a little polishing and stitching to make them good-as-new (or possibly better). Never underestimate the power of secondhand shopping!

Much love and happy thrifting (you know you want to, after seeing my amazing finds)!
