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.

Bright Colors In Fall

Hi Stylenista's

My weekend was full of fun and fashion.  Saturday I volunteered at the Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Swap.  I enjoyed working behind the scenes with a few of my thriftsisters.

My look for this event was inspired by a pair of oh so fab color block/mixed print shoes.  When I saw these shoes I wasted no time placing my order.  When they came, I knew that I needed to wear them before the weather cooled down.  My headwrap was a result of me running behind and not having enough time to wrap it the way I meant to.  This wrap style was completely unintentional, but oh I killed it (in my Lil Terio voice).

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?
