Football Chic

April 17, 2012

So, I’ve been a NY Giants fan all of my life since I met Honey. You know how it is…you meet a guy, he loves football, you fall for the guy and slowly you start to love the sport too. It’s amazing how excited I get now watching little men (Victor Cruz) run up and down the field scoring touchdowns and things.  It wasn’t always like this. Remember I Bleed Blue!

Now rewind to this past January while I’m preparing to attend a Super Bowl Party and I realize I have nothing to wear. I’m supposed to rock the team colors and I have to look cute.  So off I go to Honey’s t-shirt drawer to make magic happen. Yes, make magic happen. I have special powers. I’m a unicorn.

What I love most about this outfit is that it’s practically all thrifted! Everything except the bag and the shirt, I found at Goodwill and the Salvation Army.  Actually the blazer is one of my purchases from my 1st thrift store experience at Goodwill…years ago.  And by years, I mean over 15. I think I bought it for like $6.99. Now calculate the cost per wear for that loveliness. I hit the jackpot!

Ooh and the shirt falls into the “something borrowed, something blue” category. Wait…am I getting married soon? You know, thoughts become things…I might be on to something! **giggles**


I absolutely adore Leopard and had to add this bag to my outfit. I fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it. It was the only 1 left in the store aka my moms closet and I had to have it! Fast forward 5 months and Mommy Dearest clearly hasn’t missed it. Gotta love her!

I get it from my mama!

Can we talk about the shoes now? Finally! These thrifted, sparkly soles of joy are rather delightful. I don’t know who donated them to the Salvation Army or why but from the bottom of my glittered heart, I thank you!

I love this look! You are so thrifty and I am proud of you for keeping the same blazer for 15 years. Now, where did you get the shades?

Yes, I’m all about being frugal. I got the sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse. Here is the link. http://www.sunglasswarehouse.com/coprtochdire.html

So fab! I love the structure of the blazer and the coolness of adding a tee. The chic print of the leopard bag seals the deal and totally gives the outfit dimension. I’m in love.
