She Thrifts: Style Snatched Series..... Plaid Jacket

Hey loves,
I'm back with another She Thrifts Style Snatched Series. Today I'm snatching a look for the fabulous Rochelle of  
I recently came across Rochelle's Instagram page and I fell in love with her style.
I am wearing a thrifted polka dress (previously worn here) and I paired it with a plaid blazer. The dress wasn't giving me what I needed at the regular length, sooooooo I did something slightly ratchet to make it shorter. I tucked the bottom ruffle into my underwear to give it the illusion of being a mini. Judge me if you like but it worked. LOL

Black and Nude

Hey loves,
Wishing you all a wonderful day!!! Are you gagging over my necklace? My girl IHeartJewelz had them in her boutique and I had to have it. I paired it with a simple black shirt with faux leather patches, jeans and booties. These are my fave jeans of all time. It is probably time to let them go being that the button and zipper are broken but I can't bear to part with them. LOL I guess I could at least have them repaired. LOL  Check out pics below.

She Thrifts Thursday: Double Up

Hey loves,

I paired it with this vest to jazz it up and one of my favorite pair of Shoe Dazzle sandals. They are soooooooooooooooo freakin uncomfortable
 but lawd knows they are gorgeous. I tried a little something different with my braids and for the life of me I can't recreate this look. Sigh. Check out my look below.

Swimwear and Maxis: The Bfab Awards

Hey dolls,
So if you recall, I was nominated for Best Style Thrifter by Tastemaker magazine. The award ceremony was this past Sunday. While I didn't win (booooooo) just kidding (not really) kidding, I was extremely happy to be nominated. It felt so good to be recognized for my talents and craft. Mr. Goodwill hunting took home the win and he was defiantly worthy. The event was amazing, being surrounded by other fashionable bloggers and inspirational women is so motivating. My thrift sisters showed up and showed out. They were there in all of their thrifted garb looking fab, showing the retail girls how it's done. It is always a good time when we get together. The funny thing about social media and being apart of various thrifting groups is that you get to meet some of the most amazing people. You get the chance to forge relationships with people without even knowing them. So when you finally meet, it feels like you have been friends forever.

3 words to describe my look for the awards show: seventeen, swimwear and thrifted!!!! Yes gawd, I don't want to sound cocky but I slayed this look. I mean dead bodies in the hallway slay. I paired a swimsuit with maxi skirt and blazer. Yes you read that right, I was wearing a swimsuit. I was uber stressed out about my look and last week while out shopping for a client, I found these pieces at Goodwill and Value Village. The swimsuit was brand new with tags..... SCORE! The blazer was thrifted about 2 years ago on a trip to San Diego. The clutch is actually an art portfolio that I made into a purse. The entire look came in at 20 bucks. The shoes were on sale for 10 dollars. I mean not to toot my own horn buuuuuuuuut toot toot. LOL She did that!!!

I was so happy to see one of my thrift sisters show up rocking her She Thrifts tee from my collection. I almost cried. I try to always support my people so it felt really good to have her support me.  

Check out pics from my look and the event below! This post is going to be a little picture heavy, so you've been warned.

She Thrifts: Style Snatched Series... Utility Jacket

Hey loves,
It is almost the weekend and although my weekend is jam packed, I just look forward to my alarm clock not going off at 6am. So today is She Thrifts Thursday and I'm excited to announce some new changes to the weekly series. As it says in today's title, I will be style snatching and recreating retail  looks with thrifted items. Instead of just showcasing my thrifted fashion, I will be showing you dolls how to recreate a look using thrifted items. If you have a look you would like to see recreated, feel free to email me at

On the first installment of the series I am recreating a look from my blogger friend Courtney of Believe In Style

She wore a utility jacket, stripped shirt with a denim skirt. My total look was thrifted with the exception of my shoes and handbag. Speaking of handbag, can we have a moment of silence for the handmade custom bag my hubby bought me in Mexico. I looooove it!!! Ok back to the look, lol so I recreated her look to better suit me. I didn't have a denim skirt so I paired it with jeans instead.

A utility jacket is incredibly versatile and a wardrobe essential. It took me close to a year to find the perfect one. I always see them in thrift stores but many of them have the elastic bottom and I didn't want that. I found this one last month while in D.C. 

Check out pics from my look below and also make sure to check out Courtney's blog.

Double Plaid

Hey loves,
Happy Hump Day!!! Today I'm sharing a double plaid thrifted look with you that I absolutely love. I planned to wear this look a few weeks ago with sneakers to a football game, but exhaustion kicked in and I decided to stay home. I paired it with a pair of black sandals for school today. Check out pics below.
