She Thrifts Thursday: Grecian + Gladiators

Hey loves,

I'm not sure if you've noticed but She Thrifts Thursday is my fave day of the week. I love sharing my thrifted looks with you dolls and inspiring the non thrifters to be fab on any budget. You can't imagine how rewarding it is to meet people who tell me they started thrifting because of me. I am  a die hard thrifter and I have been since the 7th grade. It amazes me how many people have jumped on the bandwagon of thrifting and resale.

So let's take a moment to talk about big calf muscle problems. Sigh... while I love my legs and feel they are my best asset. Baby these calf muscles give me the blues. You don't even know how many shoes and boots I've had to pass on because they wouldn't zip. I found these beauties at Shoe Dazzle and instantly fell in love. But of course they came and I couldn't zip them. I wanted to die a slow death. LOL Before I sent them back, I decided to try them on again. Although I had to lay down, stand on one leg, bark like a dog.... a big dog, wiggle, hop and shimmy into them, I eventually got them to zip. Yes Gawd.... Won't he do it.

I went out and celebrated my girl's birthday and I thought this look would be perfect for the evening. I love the outcome although the skirt is a wee bit short. Check out pics below.

Tomboy Chic

Hey lovelies,

Today I am giving you hat to the back, icy white sneakers, tomboy realness. I have really been into sneakers and a more casual look lately. I thrifted this peplum dress for around $5. It is so on trend with the peplum and the black and white color combo. I couldn't wait to have it dry cleaned and rock it. I wore it to a meeting last week. I love my job!! Being that I'm in the fashion industry, it is pretty much expected that I won't be wearing a pants suit or business attire to 90% of my meetings. 

It was an extremely windy day so keeping my hair together was out of the question. Thank goodness I wore a hat or I would have been looking a hot slop mess. Check out pics below.

She Thrifts Thursday: Under Construction

Hey lovely people!!! It's almost the weekend, are you as excited as I am? Today is She Thrifts Thursday and I'm featuring a cute yet uber casual look. I thrifted this over-sized sweater a few weeks ago. I've wanted a few of these cable knit sweaters for a while and although my bestie told me to put it back, I'm glad I didn't. My latest mission is to find one in chartreuse. I am completely obsessed with this color as of late.Ok, so can we take a moment of silence for my magazine clutch..................................... I've seen a million of these but not quite like this one. I live!!!! I knew I was going to get fussed at for purchasing it, because my husband is trying to monitor my shopping. But I couldn't leave this behind. What kind of inhumane person would I be to leave this clutch in the store when it was begging to come with me. I am just doing my part to help the economy. LOL Sigh.... this shopping addiction is real.

A few weeks ago my sister got married and aside from being the matron of honor, I was in charge of styling the wedding party. I found these Michael Kors  sandals at Ross..... yes close your mouth I said Ross. They were only 60 bucks. They only had two left and they just happen to be the right size for me and the maid of honor. Look at God!!! Won't he do it!!

Check out pics below of my amazing black and white shoot.

Hey dolls,
I hope that you all are having a great week so far.  I am gearing up for my event this weekend with my Thrift Tea/blogger boo/BFF. If you guys missed my previous post, we will be hosting our very first resale shop. If you are in Atlanta, you don't want to miss this event.

Today's post consist of mixed prints, super market shots, and me doing the absolute most. I found myself falling into the same category as all other bloggers. Going outside taking pics, same 5 poses... THE END. I am so thankful for the creativity of my team, my photographer, brand manager and myself. I am more willing to take risks and set myself apart.

I wore these pants a few years ago here When I looked back on these pics I was like dang I was skinny. LOL I need to get back to this weight. What a difference a cupcake will make. Or in my case, a cupcake a chocolate chip cookie and a bag of chips. LOL Food is my weakness, what can I say.

I love my look. I thrifted this jacket back in November from my Thrift Sister Posh Lady Vintage. I didn't know what I would wear it with but I knew I had to have it. The shoot was dope, even though we got all kinds of dirty looks for being in people's way at the store. Check out pics below.

She Thrifts Thursday: 90's Chic

Hey lovelies,
It's She Thrifts Thursday and I couldn't be more excited to share my thrifted two piece suit (to include stirrups) with you. I found this beauty at a thrift store not far from my home. It's not the best thrifting  experience, really junky and very few finds but every now and then the Thrift Gods smile on me. I was dead to the bed when I spotted this beauty on my way out the door. I quickly snatched it off the rack while mean muggin the chic who locked eyes with it right after I did. So sorry boo, all is fair in love and thrift. LOL Can you believe I only paid 4 dollars for this ole nasty piece of suit. Yessssss! Check out pics below.

Black Leather

I'm back!!!! Hey dolls, I am back from a brief hiatus and feeling rejuvenated. Sometimes you just have to step away from everything and reevaluate things. I am even more motivated to give you guys more fab fashion.

I found this dress a few months ago at the local Ross and I've been saving it for the perfect moment every since. Although I'm a huge thrifter, I love shopping at Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshalls for my trendy pieces. I'm not willing to spend hundreds on pieces that will be out of style in a few months.  Ross always has cute dresses for great prices.

I paired this gorg faux leather dress with my fingerless opera gloves I purchased from Ebay. I'm not sure where you are in the world but here in Atlanta the weather is super Bipolar. I am so glad I brought my coat because by the end of the day I was freezing. I am so ready for spring. All I want in my life is a sundress. Is that too much to ask?

Shout out to my photographer, who came up with this dope concept of taking pics in the market. He is something like amazing..... Check out pics below.
