She Thrifts Thursday: Kimono

Hey loves,
It's She Thrifts Thursday and I am uber excited to share this amazing kimono with you guys.  I found it a few weeks ago while out thrifting and it was love at first sight. I knew immediately how I wanted to style it. My nephew and husband totally hated this outfit but I stayed true to what I wanted this look to be and I like the outcome.

 I swear my photographer has me doing some of the most dangerous things all in the name of a great shot. LOL We were standing on a bridge with oncoming traffic for this photo shoot. I was scared to death but hey, I'm always up for a challenge. Check out pics below of how I styled my thrifted kimono.

Vintage Stripes

Happy Tuesday lovelies,
Today I am sharing the cutest vintage jacket. I found it a few weeks ago at Goodwill. I debated forever about keeping it or selling it in my store.  As you can tell I kept it sigh... However, it is now on the website for sell. I paired it with a pair of electric blue jeans and my Giuseppe replica sandals I found a few years ago for $20.00.. My photographer had the idea to take pics at the farm. I think the concept came out dope.Check out pics below.

She Thrifts Thursday: Colors

Hey loves,
It's She Thrifts Thursday and today I am bringing you one of my all time favorite thrifted items. How amaze balls is this pink Christian Dior blazer? It is even more amazing because I only paid 5 dollars for it. **hits the tootsie roll** LOL So you know my clothing always has a story/history. The real shade is that I was out shopping for a client. I initially picked this jacket for her because it is a size 4. But something in my spirit told me to try it on.... well I did and Lawd it fit. The thrift Gods were definitely smiling on me that day.

I paired the blazer with these thrifted JLo shorts. I could NOT fit these shorts when I bought them. But they were so darn cute and cheap that I vowed to get into them. Yesssss Gawd, I finally lost enough weight to get into them. Granted they are a little snug... LOL that's not the point, the point is they buttoned. End of story. LMBO I am in love with these sandals from Shoe Dazzle, they had a buy one get one free sale sooooo I bought them in both colors. **hides face in shame** not really LOL

Middle Of The Road

Hey loves,

Today I am coming to you with Thee most amazing thrifted skirt. If you follow my YouTube channel, I previously previewed it in my vintage/thrifted haul here I accidentally ruined the skirt right before my photo shoot and it was a complete devastation to the nation. I was getting dressed and stepped through the skirt with my heel. So there was a large hole in the front of the skirt. Sigh.... I had a memorial service for it after the shoot. LOL My photographer and I are back at it and the magic is in full swing. I love these pics, check them out below.

Dashiki

Hey loves,

This post is slightly over due. Life has been so hectic and crazy busy. I am currently redecorating my house and doing some minor renovations on top of work and having out of town guest. So I am just a little bit overwhelmed to say the least. I can't wait to share my new office with you dolls. I have been a DIY beast. I just wanted unique pieces that I couldn't find everywhere so after being on the hunt for months, I decided that I would just let Pintrest take over my life. LOL I swear I love Pintrest but it is the devil. LMBO

Last week I hosted a Pop Up Shop for Rasheeda of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. I decided to break out my dashiki that I've had for close to a year. I kept my look cute and casual because I knew I would be running like a chicken with my head cut off all day. My hubby straight dissed my look..... Sigh I'm seriously starting to question his fashion sense. LOL

Check out pics below of how I styled my thrifted dashiki below.

Mint

Hey dolls,
I trust and hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Of course it seemed like mine went by way too fast. On Saturday I attended a friend of my husband's birthday dinner. I wasn't feeling well so I kept my look comfortable and cute. I found this top earlier in the week at Ross for only $8.99 and I immediately knew I wanted to pair it with my mint colored jeans for a monochromatic moment. I  freakin love Ross, I can always find cute items at a super reasonable price. I found my sandals at Shoe Dazzle a few months ago and they were on sale for 20 bucks. I love that they are a multi color snake print metallic. They can pretty much go with anything. My entire look came in under $50.00. Oh and did I mention that my purse is actually a vintage jewelry box/make up case of some sort. I took the insert out of it boom new clutch.

So while at the dinner, how about the waitress accidentally spilled coke and water all over me. I literally had coke running down the crack of my ass. Sigh.... it stained my pants. The manager gave us 50% off of our bill so I guess it wasn't too bad. LOL

Check out a few pics below.

She Thrifts Thursday: Overalls

Hey loves,
It's She Thrifts Thursday, but more importantly, it's Friday eve which means the weekend is near. I am sooooooooooooooooooooo ready for the weekend. I don't have any major plans, however, I am looking forward to sleeping in at least one day. This has been a rather long and taxing week and I want nothing more than some time to relex.

Last Saturday I surprised my son with tickets to the Sneaker Friends event. He is a sneaker head so he was super excited. As a mom, it is always heartbreaking when your child becomes a teenager and wants NOTHING to do with you. LOL My son is 14 and at that age where the parentals are not cool and he would rather do anything other than hang out with us. What that means is we have to be tricky in picking things that he loves so much he can't refuse. LOL Hahahhaha evil parent tricks.
.
Since we were attending a sneaker event, I brought out the Chucks.I thrifted these overalls last year, they were an awkward length so I cut them. I love this look. Check out pics below.
