street chic

All Mixed UP!

Hi Stylenista's,

There's a certain classicness (is that a word?) to black and white.  Subconsciously, I tend to lean more towards the black/white combo.  I like the versatility that this color combo has.  One of my favorite style enthusiast's, who I deem the queen of black and white, is Janelle Monae.  She can wear the heck out of an black and white outfit.

Following me you see I'm a huge fan of prints.  Outside of polka dot's, window pane print has become my fave.  As an avid thrifter, my primary goal was to find them for less than $5.00.  Well, that didn't happen.  While out and about with my boo, I walked into the store and there they were; front and center.  I felt like a kid on Christmas.  They were not the $5 that I was hoping for, BUT I got want I wanted.

Hi Stylenista's

The weekend is over. Whew!  And what a weekend it was.  I haven't been thrifting in weeks, maybe a few months; however, that all changed this weekend.  I co-hosted the April Thrifting Atlanta monthly bus tour.  While on the tour I picked up a few pieces that I had on my thrift wishlist.  OMG!!!! I can't wait to show you guys the one piece that almost stop the earth from revolving..... Speaking of bus tour, I scored this skirt from Ecologie Consignment and Vintage during last months bus tour.  Being the colorful individual that I am, it was a no brainer that this piece was coming home with me.  Not to mention, I almost had to fight Keren (twostylishkays) over it.  You have to watch out for her!  Anywho... 

Outfit Details Polka-dot Blazer - Gifted - Express Window Pane Print Blouse - SheInside - $8.00 (I think, it was very inexpensive) Vintage Skirt - Ecologie Consignment and Vintage - $13.00 Shoes - ? Specs - Mall Kiosk - $10.00

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Springtime Ready

Hi Stylenista's

The weather in the "A" is starting to warm up and I can't wait to break out a few pieces that I thrifted during the cold months.  I've even started working on my shoes collection for spring '15.

Notice anything different?  You guess it!  My hair is slightly different.  Since I've been natural, I've only had my hair straightened twice.  I love my hair in it's natural state, I just wish I would have big chopped sooner.  My hair goal is to have a fro as big as the moon (kidding) but I would like for it to grow more.

When I thriftshop, I never look for anything in particular.  My goal is to find something super cute, different and multi-functional.  I was having a rough day at work so I decided that I needed a little resale therapy.  So as I meandered through the aisles, I came up on this emerald green full skirt - buying it was a no brainer.  Although I'm frugal when it comes to shopping, I had to go retail to get this black jacket.  Isn't it everything?  I really really liked how this look came together.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
