Well...  I cannot even begin to tell you how this past week and a half has been for me.  I feel like I've been running none stop since mid February.  Aaannddd you wouldn't believe what happened to me two Thursday's ago
I was in a minor car accident.  Yep my first car accident since I've been driving.  My car was damaged and I've been driving around in a rental car, which sucks!  Anywho enough about that....

Now that we're on the cusp of spring, I'm starting to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring.  Incorporating your winter pieces into your spring wardrobe can quickly give your style a fresh feel.  If styled properly.  I originally bought this dress in the fall.  Although the dress has short sleeves, I thought of several ways to style this dress that could easily take me through all 4 seasons.  Here's how I styled it a few months back while in New York.  By adding layers I was able to create a stylish look all while attempting to stay warm.

With the weather starting to warm up, I switched up the look just a tad.  I went with the athleisure street style.  Have you ever thought about wearing sneakers with a dress just to give your look a more playful touch?  You should try it sometime.

Before you get to the pics below, I've got something to tell you, but promise not to tell my thrifting buddies.... Let it be our little secret.  Okay here goes!  This look is completely NOT thrifted!!!!! Not a single item.  Although I've been thrifting since my teens, the past few years I've only shopped at thrift stores.  For whatever reason I refused to shop retail – crazy right?  Now I shop almost anywhere, mainly because I’m a shopaholic.  I even like grocery shopping.

Are you ready for spring?  What spring trends are you most excited about?  Let's talk about it below.

Ready To Celebrate!

Hi Stylenista's!

It's been a few days since my last post and I feel like it's been months.  You see the way my life is set up, I'm not able to post as often as I'd like.  Not only is my son now playing basketball, it's also cold as ice outside.  What does the two have to do with each other? Not a thing!

N-E-Who! I mentioned in my last post that I would be celebrating my dad's 60th birthday this past Saturday.  So the outfit that I had planed on wearing almost didn't come together.  As I knew I would, I waited til the last minute to start working on my attire only to find out that I didn't have enough tulle.  My husband was leaving to run an errand so I asked him to pick me up a roll of tulle.  Would you believe that even after showing him a picture of what I needed, he still came home with the wrong thing - go figure.  Well being the creative being that I am, I worked it out anyhow.  The first look was styled for Thrifting Atlanta's Fashion Week Style Wars competition and the second look was for my dad's birthday dinner.  Which do you like better?  

Oh, I almost forgot... My dad surprised my mom by using his birthday dinner to renew their wedding vows.  How awesome was that, major points for that.

Outfit Details
Black top - Park Ave Thrift Duluth - $2.50 (this came with a long skirt, but I'm thick....)
Gold Skirt - Diva Diva Boutique Alpharetta - $8.00
Black Tulle underneath - JoAnn's - 1.50 a roll (on sale)
