The Black Out

Happy Monday loves,

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was amaze balls. The weather was great. My brother was in town and we hung out. Of course I worked out and had brunch with my girls. Annnd there was thrifting lots and lots of thrifting. LOL

I wore this thrifted look and I adore the outcome. My jumpsuit is hella too big but it has emotional ties to it so I refuse to ever let it go. I threw on my fur collar black coat to camouflage how big the jumpsuit truly was. LOL

This line speaks to my spirit.... If you are capable of taking something that cost nothing and making it look like something, you have definitely mastered style!! It is not about spending all your coins on clothes. It's about giving style in the most unexpected way with items that aren't going to break the bank. Truth of the matter is you can have all the designer labels you want. If you're style is wack, you will just have expensive wack clothing.....

Until Next Time.....

Cheap Clothes Look Cheap

I've heard a lot of people make the statement that they don't like thrifting because other people have worn the clothing. Sigh.... shut up. LMAO Do you know how many people have tried on the clothing before you bought it?? Do you know how many people buy things, wear it and return it?? Exactly. Instead of investing in trendy cheap clothes from places like Rainbow, Simply Fashion and Dots, try thrifting and investing in quality clothing instead. Tis always better to pay cheaper prices than to buy cheap clothing. Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the cheaper stores if you're purchasing a piece or 2. However, as a grown woman your entire wardrobe should NOT come from these stores.

Until Next Time....

Cheetah Maxi

Hey dolls,

When I tell you I am tired all the way down to my soul. I am doing a 100 day workout challenge with my gym sisters and we are on day 25. I am f'n exhausted. Yes we are working out for 100 straight days. Jesus be a day of rest. Ok so I have a funny story. My intern and I were doing the photo shoot for these pics and almost got arrested for trespassing. LMAO. Not really almost arrested but when we were done the cops were standing by my car and needed an explanation as to why we were shooting in an illegal dumping zone. Hell I didn't know, the sign said caution not no trespassing. They demanded to see the pics and everything Sheeh..

Don't Go Broke.....

So here's the thing... we all like nice things but we can't always afford the things we want when we want them. Chile don't go in debt trying to be fly. Wearing "red bottoms" and carrying a Louis Vuitton means nothing if you are forced to eat Ramen noodles and have no money in your $1000 bag. **pass the collection plate. I just preached a sermon**  Now.... did you know you can find all kinds of designer items at the thrift store. No seriously, I've found a Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and more. Shop smart loves, don't go broke trying to look rich. IJS nobody likes a broke bitch. LMAO

Until Next Time....

Flowers and Fur

Hey loves,

Happiest of hump days to you!! I hope you're all doing well. I am uber chic and casual today. I've recently become slightly obsessed with sneakers.... I know right... Wheeeett! Yep me.. in love with a something under 5 inches. I found this pair in the summer time at Just Fab and knew they had to be apart of my shoe family. I'm doing a bit of mixed prints with the floral print and stripes.

Check out pics below. Oh shout of to my intern Z for slaying these pics for me!!!

Thrift your Way to Personal Style

Obtaining a personal style can be quite the daunting process. Yep I said daunting... LOL Listen, the truth of the matter is that retail shopping can be a crutch to those trying to obtain a personal style. It is also a hindrance for those who may have struggles with fashion and style. I know it sounds crazy but there is logic behind what I'm saying... Think about it.... thrift shopping takes more patience, more originality and more diligence. Why? Because there are no fully dressed mannequins, no stylish sales associates to assist you and no racks and racks of the latest trends. You are forced to get in and do the work yourself which allows for an easier way to developing your personal style. Makes sense now right..

If you missed the last She Thrifts University, you don't want to miss the next one. I will be giving away all kinds of thrift knowledge like this. With more than 20 years of thrifting experience, the class is definitely worthwhile. Coming in Feb, deets coming soon.

Until Next Time.....
