What to wear

Cute As A... I'm Just Cute

Hello Stylenista's!

Wow! We're already in the February.  Time waits for no one.  I'm so excited to see what this year will bring.  I'm destine for purpose, therefore I'm purpose driven.

Today's post is totally "thrifted,"  actually each piece came from various boutiques.

Thrift Style Academy

Hi Stylenista's!

Class is in session!  Today's lesson is about creating your own look all while doing so on a budget.  If you've been following my blog, then you should know that you don't have to spend a lot in order to look trendy.  As for myself, I like to see how I can come up with my own trendy look.  

Guess what?  The only item that that I'm wearing that is NOT thrifted are my socks and shoes? And two of the pieces are name brand, get into that! This look is a mixture of a little vintage, a splash of modern with a twinkle of retro.

Sparkle & Gold

Hi Stylenista's

Thirfting is soooo much fun.  You never know what you're going to find and not to mention it's very addictive.  I find myself at somebody's thrift store at least 2-4 times a week.  But the way I look at it, I can get quality and quantity at the same time.

Happy Monday!

80's Girl

Hi there Stylenista's

I had a fun filled weekend.  Saturday I attended Thrifting Atlanta's monthly bus tour hosted by Keren Charles of TwoStylishKays.  Although I must admit by the fourth stop I was pooped, however, I was not going to be defeated and miss out on an awesome find.

I think I'm in love with vintage fashion. - the conservative look of the 30's - the classic look of the 40's - the tailored look of the 50's - the mod look of the late 60's - not a fan of the 70's, except for the natural hair movement and the vibrant colors of the 80's.  As far a today's fashion goes, most of it is a recreation of past fashion era's.

Getting to my outfit... This blazer was a must have.  I got it while attending an event earlier this year.  My favorite part about this blazer are the different colored striped buttons.  I went back and forth about wearing this pleated hounds-tooth mini but as you can see I wore it.

Dots & Prints

Hey there Stylenista's

Happy Wednesday!  One more day and then it's Friday.

I'm not sure why, but I'm sooo looking forward to this fall season.  Maybe it's because I have a few pieces that I've been really anxious to wear (shrugs shoulders).  Anywho...

From all of my previous post, you should know that I really love mixing prints.  Today is no different.  What prints have you mixed together?

Natural Chic

Hey there Stylenista's!

I call this look natural chic.... I have been natural for over 2 years and I LOVE it.  I wish I would have done it earlier.  I didn't grow up wearing makeup and I never learned how to apply it so I don't wear.  I'm okay with my natural beauty.
