I thrifted these semi sheer palazzo pants last year.
Style My Palazzo Pants
They have short shorts sewn inside to preserve modesty so I didn’t need to resort to any vintage bloomers.
(Communal sigh of relief)
This outfit has a bit of a 1930s/40’s vibe don’t you think?
Nothing like mixing stripes, florals and polka dots!
Like Iris Apfel says,
“More is more, less is a bore.”
I was out thrifting two days ago and a gal came up to me and said,
“You do this for a living, like me, don’t you?”
I was shocked. How did she know?
When I asked her how she knew she replied,
“Oh I just had to look at you and I knew.”
While she said this she waved her hand up and down my outfit.
For reference I was wearing outfit #3 here with the altered jean jacket on top.
The gal that spoke to me was wearing a very cool 1980s shift dress. It’s not often you see someone making a 1980s dress look cool but she did.
Isn’t that what great style is all about? Taking a piece and somehow managing to make it look like it was designed for you?
That’s a skill she has undoubtably mastered.
Turns out she has a bulk clothing partner so she only shops thrift for her personal wardrobe. For her Etsy shop she gets all of her clothing for free and then shares a percentage of her sales with her supplier. I understand why you don’t want to pay $18 for a dress when you can get it for free.
She was kind enough to show me some of the pieces she scouted before me. I snatched up one amazing 1970s dress with oversized angel sleeves she’d picked out. It’s amazing!
I’m so glad that the 70’s weren’t her thing.
I’ve created a couple more outfits with these fun floral easy-to-wear palazzo pants which I’ll be sharing soon.
If I fit into that groovy 70’s maxi I’ll be sharing that as well.
It’s times like this I could really use some help with that dang back zipper that seems to be on every piece of vintage I own.
The pug is smart but she isn’t ambidextrous enough.
Her overwhelming cuteness makes up for her lack of dexterity.
Another blogger that I love Theresa also recently styled her gorgeous 1940s vintage palazzo pants with some flair.
Do you own any palazzo pants? Do you like them?
