thrifted

Shine Bright

Hi there Stylenista's

The weekend is over :-[ and time to go back to the work place.  Hope your weekend was full of excitement.

When I saw this top I was like, heck yea!  It actually came with a skirt, but I wasn't feeling the skirt so it was added to my boutique collection (it was sold at an event).  I really love colors so this outfit was fun to wear.

Top - St. Vincent de Paul Duluth - $2.50

Passion For Fashion

Hi there Stylenista's

Happy Monday!  Today is the first day of fall and I can't wait to see the different looks this season will bring.  I, myself, am looking forward to styling a few pieces that I've thrifted over the spring/summer months.  

Speaking of styling, I was asked to assist in styling for a fashion show for a women's conference luncheon.  Now, I've styled for church fashion shows before, however, this show required a pinch of finesse.  All in all I had fun.

Check out pics of my look and a few of the styles I created...

Pink & Gold

Hey there Stylenista's

I scored this ka-ute (cute) Forever21 neon pink blouse on one of the Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour's.  Although three fashionista's tried it on, it was I who it fit best.  I could't wait to style it.  This skirt was a must have as well.

Blouse - Park Ave Thrift Woodstock - $1.75
Skirt - Park Ave Thrift Woodstock - $1.75
Belt - Thrifted - $1.00

The Office...

Hi There Stylenista's

It's officially fall and the weather in Atlanta is uugghhh!  I remember when I took these pics, it was hot.  I had to find a nice shady area so that I wouldn't have sweat dripping from my face. As always, my look is thrifted.  Creating different looks for penny's on a dollar is sooo rewarding.  

Outfit Details...
Blouse - Purple Tigress - $5.00
Skirt - B & R Thrift - $2.50
Shoes - Charlotte Russe - $ can't remember

 Black Skirt







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.

Outfit Details:

Top - Thrifted - $1.00
Skirt - Thrifted - $2.00
Shoes - Plato's Closet - $10
Belt - Thrifted - .50
Accessory's - B&R Thrift Store - $1.50/ set



 









Denim & Florals

Hey there Stylenista's

Thanks for checking out my latest post!  I really appreciate it.

It amazes me to see how unintentionally I create similar looks within the same month and not even realize it. It wasn't until I was going through my photos that I noticed that I'd created the denim & floral look twice in one month.  I guess subconsciously, I was really feeling this look. I especially like the fact that both the denim tops and floral skirts were thrifted/gifted.  

Outfit Details:

Plain denim top - Old Navy / gifted
Dark Floral skirt - New York & Co. / $1.75
Floral denim top - Old Navy / &2.00
Floral bottom (it's really a dress styled as a skirt) - You're A Hanger Boutique / $5.00

Total combined: Less than $10
















Men's Fashion: Women's Wear!

Hi there Stylenista!

There is something to be said of a woman who can take the look of a man and make it her own.  Even before I knew about Janelle Monae or my new style crush Esther Quek, I rocked my own version of the menswear inspired look.  

Check me out...

Refashionista... Scarf/Vest/Dress

Hi there Stylenista's...

I thrifted this scarf from Park Ave Thrift right at the beginning of the summer and wasn't quite sure what to do with it.  After watching a video on Facebook, I was inspired.  Although this DIY style is not an original, I wanted to show the different ways that I was able to style this one-piece garment.

Check out how I styled this over-sized scarf or wrap....
