Oooh, I hope my Forever 21 has that skirt. I love it! Not sure I can wear it as well as you though. You look so perfect with the blue and gold.

Good Luck on the job Ariane.

Thanks for sharing all your great finds. I also really like that blue pleated skirt and the kitty blouse.

Your new skirt is fierce. I'd give F21 a break if I could find anything in the chaotic stores.

Megan said...

Kitty blouse! So awesome!

Love the gold skirt too.

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

I am so jealous you can wear sizes from F21...the gold skirt and shoes are so much fun! I hope the job search is going well...you look so joyful...keep it up!

Forest City Fashionista said...

I love the metallic gold paired with the bright blue! You really scored some fun, inexpensive deals. I love the little black jacket with the bow pattern, and all the cute skirts! Good luck on the interview.

Patti said...

The lime green skirt suit is fierce! Love your new (thrifted) sneakers too, very cool xoxoxoxo

Helga! said...

I love metallic!! Didn't realise it was a trend agian. I remeber it being huge when I was 15 and had my first (part time) job; I bought 3 pairs of metallic flat shoes with my first pay packet! This skirt is aweosme, how can you not have fun with somehting so shiney?!
I'm loving that cape you found, and also the little Forever 21 jacket most of all out of all your fabulous finds!

You always find great stuff! I'm not a huge fan of uggs either but those with the studs are a totally different look. I can see you styling those right up.
What a cute sweater too with the seahorse!
The metallic skirt is VERY flattering!

Kendra Pahukoa said...

wow-forever 21 had those shoes? such great deals there! very very cool!

Val Sparkle said...

Wow, so many amazing finds! I love that blue leather jacket - that color in leather is so lovely - and the diagonal zip is awesome!

Bohemian vanity said...

Great finds Ariane !!! Love the metallic outfit on you and guess that shoes must be really comfy ! Your nails are stunning ! Have a fab day ! XX Tani

grunge-queen said...

Fab finds, Ariane! I have never shopped Forever 21 but love the metallic skirt and the floral wedge booties! The thrifted cape is lovely (was just looking at one on Etsy last night), as is the suit. I'm not an Uggs fan either, but I recently bought some lace-ups that I really like (so warm and comfy), and yours are really funky looking - cannot believe you found them in a thrift shop! Have a great weekend! Xoxo

lisa said...

I love this! I think fast fashion is good for having some trendy pieces without breaking the bank. Like you, I just try to mix it with some vintage!

Vix said...

What an epic haul, Ariane! I don't know where to start.
I had a metallic gold skirt like that as a teenager, I loved it so much & you rock it. The blue metallic biker's jacket is gorgeous, too. I had no idea metallic was a trend, you mean my new leather jacket is in fashion? That's a first!
That rabbit fur trimmed suit is a beauty and I love the brooches.
Have a fab weekend and with shopping luck like that job success is guaranteed to follow! xxx

Hello Ariane,
can't nearly believe it, you found such a lot of beautiful things, each piece so unique. My favorites are the skirt suit, because of the spring reminding color and the nice fabric. The blue leather jacket, the color and the shape so fantastic. And the grey skirt with the metallic decoration, so extraordinary.
I look forward to see pics of you wearing these wonderful things.
I hope you will get the job you desire.
Have a wonderful weekend my dear!

Izzywizz said...

Great purchases!! :) I really like the wedge sneakers, how cute! Im not really a fan of wedge sneakers but I would so wear these beauties! :)

PinkCheetahVintage said...

I love the sneakers you're wearing and I love the floral wedges, too!! The black and white blazer is fierce!

The Grande Dame said...

High street shops can be so much fun when they have sales! Nothing wrong with a few $10 deals! I love all your finds, and the metallics looks great on you. Sparkly shiny threads, who could go past them! Those wedge sneaker shoes are so cool :)

Krista Gassib said...

I love the blue and gold on you it looks fab! I'm with you and have a fair mix of thrifted and forever 21 and modcloth as of late. Sometime it's just as cheap and cute! You have some beautiful things here. The blue leather jacket and the floral wedges are a few favs!

Claire Justine said...

Wow loving all your shopping, love the trainer boots i could see myself in some now I've seen yours. Great outfit i really want to go shopping now and buy some bargains....

kaffesoester said...

I want a gold skirt too! It's fantastic, just what I need to fill a huge gap in my wardrobe! I love the skirt suit too, a great find - I'm looking forward to see how you style it.

If you don't get a job, then you might consider starting a vintage or secondhand shop? You're so talented with these goodies!

pastcaring said...

You found a LOT of stuff, Ariane! The gold skirt is great, I had no idea metallic was a trend (but then I don't take much notice of these things!) The cape looks fabulous, and as others have said, despite not usually liking Uggs much, those boots look really cool and a real bargain too. Love the colour of the skirt suit. I can see you rocking everything you bought! xxx

CityScape Skybaby said...

You got loads of great stuff Ariane, I love the thrifted skirt suit, there's so much nice stuff it's hard to remember it all! My daughter bought herself a lot of lovely things in the sales this week too, some of it even fits me so I will be pinching a few bits now and again I think. xx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

The electric blue tights with metallic gold have brightened my Monday morning. Great finds as you wait for your second interview. And those nails are astounding!
