The Look for Less: Nautical Edition

Hey my fellow thriftanistas happy Thursday. Last night I went to an event for my dad. He has been a  radio personality in Chicago for 43 years. For 25 of those years he has worked at WBEZ which is Chicago Public Radio. In celebration of this wonderful accomplishment the radio station threw him a party. Friends and family from all aspects of his life came out to support him and show their love. Did I mention the event was at Chicago’s Navy Pier? Of course you know me being “The Thrifty Fashionista” one of the first things I thought about was what would I wear. My mind immediately thought the pier, boats and an outside deck equals nautical fashion. The nautical look is a big trend right now so it can be found in every popular retail store. However you know my shopping destination was my nearest thrift store. I was on the hunt for the hottest nautical pieces to create a fabulous party worthy ensemble. Do you think I was succesful? Check out the pictures below of my nautical look for less. I event outfitted my whole family in thrifted red, white and blue fabulous fashion. The Gap kids have nothing on my babies. By the way the party was amazing and I am so proud of my dad. Pictures from the party will be available on my FB page Confessions of a Thrift Store Fashionista.

Smooches,
