Statement Sleeves with Zaful

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

A statement sleeve. This trend came into 2016 with a bang and will be definitely sticking around for 2017. There is something about a statement sleeve that just adds an extra bit of chic to your outfit, not to mention it’s a head turner. This statement top is from Zaful, it is truly amazing with the wrap around front and bow accent to make it extra special. Moving on to the sleeves now, let’s talk about tiers. This triple-tiered sleeve adds so much extra volume to the top, it is fantastic. If you find yourself at a dinner party, like I did, every time you reach across the table you get a few stares. This also leads into the cautionary rules of not getting your sleeve in the olive oil dipping sauce in the middle of the table.

This Zaful top comes at such an unbelievable price, $30.99. Zaful really knows how to make a fashion girl’s heart flutter with the prices and look of this top. Feel free to check them out here.

Midi Thriftin’

Heading to the thrift store may have you playing Macklemore on repeat, but it was an essential destination for Halloween costume searching. My boyfriend and I headed there in hopes to find some key pieces for our “super secret” , but not actually “super secret” costume, but I’m still not going to tell.

To my surprise I had never been to a thrift store this large before. Needless to say the finds I was having were actually quality items. People probably just were not wearing them anymore. There were Steve Madden heels, Kate Spade purses, and Talbots blazers. Those were just a few treasures I found.

I eventually found this beautiful blue- green jacket (pictured below) that I was obsessed with. This was partially because blue-green is my favorite color scheme. The structure and fit were amazing, but with one fatal flaw. The sleeves were too short. I live in Michigan. My whole arm better be covered and then some.

My shopping ensemble had me feeling fabulous in a bodycon midi dress. They are so comfortable and you never have to worry about pulling them down constantly while showing off your curves. The high heeled ankle boots, create an illusion of a longer body because generally midis cut you off in a place that may have you looking more short and stout. The essential hat tops off the outfit for the perfect day accessory.

We did eventually find success in the thrift store with some “secret pieces” for our Halloween costumes. Which of course must be left as a surprise.

Below are some suggestions to get the look.
