Goodwill Goddess: Black & Gold [4 outfits-n-1]

I'm a classic kind of chick.  
I love trends and do participate in most, but I am a stickler for classic staple pieces that either have a little flair, or can be dressed up with accessories.  

Black & gold were a huge staple this fall/winter season and, many times, I found myself looking at items in my closet thinking, "They just need something to complete the look."  After pinning a thrifty leg warmer idea on Pintrest, I headed to our local Goodwill to see what I could find.

It must have been my lucky day because as I was scouring the sweater section, I came across a black and gold sweater that I knew {if the sleeves were cut into leg warmers} would complete those few outfits.  

But…in this project find, I wasn't expecting to also gain a new sweater top that's oh' so cute!

**The sleeves off of the below sweater, were cut into leg warmers.**
Wear them with the synched wristband at the bottom of your ankle and then allow the fuller part to peak out of your boots.

As always, "You can always look divine on a dime, you just have to know how to shop!  And if you don't, contact me!"
