Jan 3: Thrifted Professional Tops

While home for the holidays, I am happy to report that I found some professional tops at local Goodwill stores, so I can continue on my impromptu “thrifted professional wear” series with a small thrifting haul.

My first top is a black layered short-sleeve blouse. It’s a sweater vest base with a polyester bow neckline and blousy sleeves. I’m admittedly a huge sucker for blouses with bows at the neckline and tops with layered appearances – so this find was a definite treasure!

Speaking of tie and bow neck blouses it this steal! Small town Goodwills are exceptionally great for finding designer pieces at affordable prices. This top is Michael Kors – but I managed to snag it for a whopping $3 with no stains. In addition to this amazing deal, I love the opportunity for a pop of color. I have a pair of heels which feature a similar color, and I’d definitely pair them together!

Continuing with our designer brand steals (another $3 piece) is this Calvin Klein blouse is a nice neutral taupe. It’s a neutral color I don’t often find, so I was more than happy to put it in my cart! I look forward to pairing this with a patterned jacket or suit as a neutral top while more interesting than a basic white shirt.

Last, but certainly not least, it a black short-sleeved top. Featuring a peplum at the waist and an exposed statement gold zipper on the back, I can wait to pair this with either a slacks for work or a fitted skirt for a night out! This is also an ideal top for wearing a statement necklace!

That’s all for my Goodwill professional tops haul. I’m looking forward to sharing some professional outfit pairings (and maybe some more professional wear hauls..?) in the coming weeks!
