Thrifted & Gifted: Persimmon Orange + Marc White Palazzo

The only thing better than thrifted is gifted. You can quote me on that and put it on Wikiquote. No really, you can, anyone can edit. It doesn't take me to tell you that the best things in life are free (or close to it) especially when those things are cookies, clothing, or hugs. In that order; Cookie Is Life.

I was gifted this bright orange button-up and kept it as an outfit challenge.  I don't know why it seemed so impossible, maybe it was the color at the time, or maybe the button-up sparked my sercret fear of dressing too seriously.  I take that comment back - power suits do wonders for your ambition.  Speaking of serious dressing check out that faux-bakelite mint colored giant bead necklace I'm wearing, gifted to me by my lovely momma. It makes anyone who wears it look instantly creative. Don't you agree?
Since you've already seen my platform clog booties a million times over (here and here) and that leopard belt once before (here), I should tell you about the white cropped palazzo pants I spotted at the Salvation Army for $4.99.  They are United Colors of Benetton and stuck out like a sore thumb amongst a sea of fleece pajama pants and carpenter jeans. I love them and will wear them only when I eat vanilla cones all day.  The Tod's bag was gifted and it's the perfect neutral to go with all of my Spring brights.  I love classic pieces.  The bracelets are from my pseudo-sisters.  I wear them together just like this all of the time because I think it looks pretty.  The ring is thrifted because well, it wasn't gifted, and that's today's outfit post theme.
