Viva la Vintage Wednesday!

I always look forward to Wednesdays because I know that I get to showcase some AWESOME vintage pieces! Many of my IG friends join me in this endeavor, and for that, I am truly grateful. Today's showstopper was purchased just a few weeks ago in South Carolina. It was truly one of those "love at first sight" moments for me! Do you love it as much as I do? 

Check out my IG friends' oh-so-fresh vintage! Love these fashionistas!

Asos jumpsuit

So, umm, you can tell I like jumpsuits aye? Well, I especially like them when I discover them at a fantastic price as I did this ASOS jumpsuit from Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, Alabama. Ever been there? No? Well, when you're not doing anything on a Saturday, you should definitely check it out! TRUST me, you'll be glad you did.

True flower power

Probably too much, huh? I know, I know, I could have worn them as separates, but I REALLY liked the print, and I didn't want to separate the top/skirt. So funny: One of my students asked if I was going to church after work today! Uhh, kids!

Orange-red vintage jumpsuit

Flower power jumpsuit

I purchased this jumpsuit from a seller on Poshmark over the summer. The moment I saw it, I knew it would suit me. 

Vintage palazzo pant jumpsuit

So, I was strolling around one of my favorite thrift stores in SC and stumbled upon this beauty. As I was trying it on in the mirror. . .

September Thrift and Brunch

I recently had the pleasure of hosting Thrifting Atlanta's monthly Thrift and Brunch. For brunch, we visited Marlow's Tavern in Midtown. Talk about an awesome buffet! I always, always, always overindulge when I attend Marlow's Sunday Brunch...#fattypatty! After brunch, we headed over the Alexis Suitcase in Buckhead. In case you didn't know, Alexis Suitcase is one of the flyest consignment stores in Atlanta. They offer myriad items at affordable prices, and their staff is awesome! Check them out some time at one of their three locations; you won't be disappointed! Our final destination was Designer Consigns, also in Buckhead. I've been to this particular consignment boutique on several occasions and I always find something(s) to swoon over! Stop by Designer Consigns and tell the lovely owner, Stephanie, that I said hi!

Check out some of the photos from the event:

Mickey mouse ensemble

I'm a sucker for totally unique items. When I saw this dress at Angel's Boutique, I was in awe! Then, I found the jacket while thrifting for a whopping three bucks! Score!!!! Do you prefer unique pieces over, say, trendy ones?

O-live to wear jeans to work

On Fridays, I can wear jeans to work (I know, I know, most people can!). This makes it pretty effortless to select an outfit. I'm not a huge fan of olive green, so I've had this shirt for several months...wasn't too keen on wearing it immediately, but I am so glad I wore it today! Surprisingly, it looks much better on the body than in the bag. I think I pulled it off exceptionally well all things considered.


Viva la Vintage Wednesday on IG

Sometimes I just don't feel like lugging out my camera and tripod. Today was one of those days. However, I was uber excited about showcasing this vintage jumpsuit that I purchased from a fellow Instagramer and vintage lover! You like?

Flower power

“If flowers were boogers, I'd pick a few big ones and flick them on your grave.” 
― Jarod KintzIt Occurred to Me

What can I say? I like flowers just as much as I like plaid! Today I took my goddaughter on her first thrifting excursion. She found some awesome items and from the huge grin on her face, I could tell that she really enjoyed herself. I, too, found some fabulous vintage pieces--can't wait to style them!


Deets on the outfit:

Boho chic

I'm a sucker for a nice maxi skirt. However, I'm a fool for a vintage maxi!
I wore this outfit to a shopping party at Designer's Consignment and dinner with friends at Frank Ski's Restaurant and Lounge. We had sooo much fun, not to mention I scored some really nice items...stay tuned!

Out and about in the DR!

While in the DR, we went to Imagine Night Club. It's a really cool spot with two separate dance areas. The club itself was designed within a cave. I really wish I had taken my DSLR camera so I could've captured the true ambiance of this venue. Oh well. Next time? (Probably not!)

Print mixx chick

So, if someone had told me a year ago that I would be print-mixing my clothing, I would not have laughed in their face and kept it movin'. THIS, you see, is how I know that my sense of fashion is evolving; it is becoming this explosive mixx and eclectic cross of genres and styles. And guess what? I love it!


Tribal jumpsuit

And here is yet another outfit post that SHOULD have been posted weeks ago. Bear with me, I'm still a work in progress.

I got this tribal jumpsuit from DivaXpress Retail. When I saw it on the site, I couldn't believe it was in my size! Be sure to check out DivaXpress as they offer a wide array of timeless vintage pieces.


She Thrifts Thursday

Blogging is truly harder than it looks. I get so caught up in day-to-day life that I forget to take photos, and then when I do remember, I'm usually too tired to set up my camera. Oh well, such is life. 

Today I participated in NeShanta's #shethrifts following via Instagram. In essence, all items that I wore were thrifted (minus the sandals and jewelry). I really like the vintage shorts...they are sooo comfortable! 

This weekend, I plan to attend a vintage trunk show at Angel's Boutique. I'm most excited because I've never been to a trunk show before, but even MORE excited because all vintage dresses will be $10! I can't wait to show you what I scored!

Vintage girl

Did I mention that I have a new-found love? With whom? With vintage clothing! I thought I found the perfect vintage dealer on eBay, but unfortunately, he sold me a couple of defective items, so. . .on to the next one! 


Tribal scarf

Sometimes I just want to "dress up." Ever felt that way? Well, that's what happened on this particular day. 


Jacket--Ann Taylor--thrifted
Tee--Victoria's Secret
Booties--Aldo (eBay)

My ducky spot

Ducky spot? That's what my husband calls a venue where a man/woman takes his mistress/other woman or man in order to remain inconspicuous. Well, I don't have a "ducky spot" for that kind of behavior, but I do when it comes to shopping! Kinda selfish, right? However, when asked nicely, I usually comply and reveal the requested info. 

When I find an article of clothing that's unique, I drool, swoon, etc., and then, I buy! Ok, not EVERY single time I discover a novel piece, but in THIS case (that would be the cardigan), I did just that! (Sorry about the overexposed photos--I'm STILL playing around with my camera!)


Spiked tapestry loafers

I purchased these on a whim because I liked the spike element. After receiving them, I wasn't too thrilled with their appearance, but they have slowly but surely grown on me. What'cha think?


 Loafers--Hautelook girl again!

What can I say? I have an affinity for plaid skirts. #thatisall


Comfort is key

When you work long hours and you're constantly standing, comfort is key. Well, this is one of my most comfortable thrifted looks to date! Check it out.

Cami--New York & Co.
