What I Wore (THRIFTED!)

(Thanks Dan for taking pictures of me instead of helping me close the heavy pocket doors!)

Every year, the restaurant Dan works for has a big appreciation party for all of the staff. There's free food and drinks so although we barely know anyone there (it's actually 2 restaurants worth of staff because of the sister pub), we are thankful for a free night out! I never know what to wear to things like this. I want to get all dressed up but I know everyone else will wear jeans. This time, I literally had 15 minutes to get ready, so this is what I wore:

It's so strange how cameras warp a nice striped shirt. Anyhow, I felt fancy yet casual and had fun in my new heels.

From Head to Toe:

Shirt: Family Thrift, $3.00; Ella Moss
Jeans : Goodwill, $3.99; Mossimo
Heel : Seattle Goodwill, $12; Culture
Bag: St. Louis Goodwill Outlet, $1.50, Vintage
Bracelet/Bangle: City Thistle!

Total cost of outfit: $20.49

I felt tall and comfortably fancy. Plus, the roomy shirt enabled me to shamelessly eat my share of Thai on our 'after party' date.
