Welcome to the FUN FASHION FRIDAY link up party! So excited that last week’s maiden voyage was such a success and thanks so much to all the fabulous ladies who linked up!
Here’s my look for the party today …
Close up of the bead trim …
When I came out in this sweater, the hubby said, “Where in the world do you even buy something like that?!” LOL. I love his funny reactions to my fashion sense. And I’m going to take it as a compliment whether or not he meant it as one!
So where do you buy a crazy fabulous sweater with ribbon and bead trim? The thrift store!
I had planned to pair the sweater with some flared jeans and clogs for a totally 70’s look, but the proportions just didn’t work. I went with skinnies and flats and was pleased with the results. What do you think?
The very best part of the sweater? It makes a charming little clink & tinkle when I walk! I wanted to do the twist all day! Hey, did I ever mention fashion can be fun?!
And speaking of fun, I thought it would be cool to feature a few of my favorite fun looks from last week’s link up. So hard to just pick a few! But here they are …
Suzanne Carillo of Suzanne Carillo Style Files looking retro and dapper.
Annette of Lady of Style looking perfect for a walk in the snow!
Tina of Tickled Pink Woman in her charming Downton Abbey inspired look.
Okay, so now on to this week’s link up fun! Please link back and don’t forget to follow along on Bloglovin so you never miss a party!
Let’s link up!
Of course a thrift store or eBay – a cool shopping place that allows you to think outside the box. Your sweater is Ka-ute! I can see wearing it a million ways!
Thanks, Glenda and thanks so much for joining in the link up! OXOX
What a cool find at the thrift store! I love the embroidery and details. I seriously need to start exploring my local thrift stores!
Thanks, Katie! Yeah, it's really hit or miss, but when you find something good, it's a little natural high!! OXOX
Such a fun and unique top!
The Real Arnolds
Thanks, Amy Ann! OXOX

That top is very cool baby! Yeah! (In my best Austin Powers voice)
I'm glad you took a close-up of the beading. Thrift stores are just full of treasures.
You and your side kick stole the show! Fab! OXOX
This is when sweater turned glam! And it is cool actually.. 🙂

Thanks, Dear! Glad you like the jeans and flats with it! OXOX
That sweater is all about the beading! I think it looks perfect with the skinnies and flats. My husband reacts the same way whenever I try something a little different. Enjoy your weekend! ~Cynthia

You struck well on this thrift store find. I love the beaded details and especially the lovely sounds that accompany it. I think my favorite part about it was your husbands response, probably becuase it sound so familiar. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

It is a very cool sweater, and I think you made the right call to keep the rest of the outfit simple and let it be the star piece here.
Thanks, Tiina! OXOX

Love your beaded sweater and even better than it's thrifted!! Thanks for the link up!! Make sure to link up to Shoe and Tell Fashion Link Up on Style Nudge on Mondays. Your whole outfit or just your shoes.
I'll be there on Monday! Thanks for inviting me, Dear!
Dawn, I was worried my earlier comment didn't take (Blogger was doing some funky stuff this a.m). Thank you so much for featuring me/my blog alongside these talented, lovely ladies! I adore your tunic–the detailing is awesome. Thanks for hosting this fab link up, too! xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
I didn't see an earlier comment. Don't you hate when that happens? Loved your super chic Downton Abbey ensemble and was happy to feature you! You know I get a lot out of reading your blog!
Hi Dawn, thanks for hosting. Loving the trimming on your sweater. Fantastic casual look. xo
Aww thanks Elsie! Thanks so much for being here! OXOX
You're lucky you saw this sweater first, dearest Dawn…otherwise, it would definitely be hanging in MY closet right now!! ;D That embroidered and bead-fringed hem is to-die-for; and together with your skinny jeans and flats, makes for an adorable gamine/boho combination!! P.S. I'm "all in" for Fun Fashion Friday…can you believe it's spring in Vancouver already?! XOXO
Gamine/boho … love that description! You would rock this sweater, no doubt! So excited that you're in for FUN FASHION FRIDAYS! Woohoo! OXOX
Where did you get the sweater? The beaded trim is so fun!
Jen @ Librarian for Life + Style
The thrift store! And no label! I wonder if someone added the trim themselves? A fashion mystery!
I adore the beading on this sweater, so pretty! Thanks for hosting & enjoy your weekend Dawn Lucy:)
Enjoy your weekend too, Marta! Yay for FRIDAY!
A lot of the 70 is coming back now. Weird in a way.I feel like dressing like my mother when I wear '70 items ( I was born in 71) It has o grow on me…
But I mst say I do like your beaded top and you were very wise to combine it with a skinny, makes it contemporary!
I was born in 66 so yeah the 70's remind me of mom and growing up too! Thanks so much for joining in the fun this Friday!
Such a cute sweater! I love the embroidery details.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Alena! OXOX
Love your super cool blog! OXOX
That's so cute, Dawn Lucy! I do love flared jeans and it seems yet again there will be a great revival this spring. You are right, in this case, skinnies are the better option. Can't wait to wear ballet flats without socks again… we have so much snow here. Well, as you can see on my photo which you kindly selected and posted!! Thank you so much, dear 🙂
Annette | Lady of Style
Your snow looks so gorgeous but I bet the cold get old on some days. We've been having unseasonably warm weather and I'm loving it but feeling a bit guilty because we're in a drought and I know I should be wishing for a storm! Thanks so much for stopping by!
That sweater is just too fun!!!
thanks, Alice! OXOX
Haha! You're husbands comment made me laugh, my husband may or may not have said the same thing to me when I've walked out in the morning. 🙂 I really love the ribbon and beads, so pretty and I would have styled it with skinnies, too!
Hee, hubbies are funny about fashion! OXOX
The beaded trim on your top is so cute!
Thank you TAra!OXOX
That sweater looks stunning! 🙂
Thanks, Alissa! OXOX
I adore that sweater… Great call on the skinnies and flats. Thanks for sharing! -Michelle
Thanks, Michelle! OXOX
