MY FAVOURITE FALL OUTFIT ONLY COST ME $23

Hola, beauties! I am so excited to be sharing details about this outfit with you all. This suit is currently my favourite piece in my closet and it will be one of those clothing items that I will have forever, even if the jacket is slightly ‘80’s working girl,' it is still elegant. I am SO in love with it!

A bit of a story about it, I found the suit at a thrift shop, and I’m not talkin’ cool vintage shop, I found it at a second hand store (more like third hand) called Wildlife Thrift Store. I remember walking by it and seeing the suit on display on a mannequin, which happened to have very similar body proportions to mine. I immediately think to myself “If there isn’t a pin pinching those pants and jacket in the back, I gotta get this suit!" You know how sometimes shops will pin an item of clothing so it fits perfectly on the mannequin. Low and behold, there are no pins. Although it was in a thrift shop, the suit was in such immaculate condition, made in Canada, by a Canadian designer and so well maintained that I automatically assumed it would cost a couple hundred dollars. When the sales associate told me “It’s $23” I shockingly asked “Like, the jacket only or which piece?” … “No, the whole suit, as well as a skirt, it comes with pants AND a pencil skirt!” I ask she removes it off the mannequin, don’t even try it on, and just buy it! Needless to say, it fit me as if it was sewn on me. Heck! It cost me more to dry clean it,alas it is worth every penny and I would have happily paid much more for it! This colour is gorgeous for fall, it matches the leaves and it's a breath of fresh air on gloomy days. You can wear the pieces separately or all together without it looking like you’re suffocating in a sea of yellow.

As mentioned above, the double breasted, oversize jackets are in this season, although style wise they aren’t an absolute favourite of mine, I like my clothes a bit more tapered and fitted, this works because when you fully button up the jacket it still accentuates your figure and the whole look is eloquent and elegant enough to wear for years to come. I’ve linked some similar style suits below, perhaps not for the same price, but hey, sometimes you just gotta be at the right place, at the right time.

    Love, love, love… a classic suit is always on point! The fact that you found such a great piece in your size is very impressive… #shoppinggoals

  6. OMG! Those shoes! Yes – I hit thrift stores, too. My favorite is the Waterfront Mission next door to me. It’s walking distance and all the proceeds benefit the local homeless in the area. They help them find jobs, if they are capable of work, and homes. My favorite clothes are always inexpensive.
