Thrift Sisters Link Up: Vintage Little Black Dress


This week Ayana and I are showing off our vintage dresses. Be sure to stop by Ayana's blog to see how she modernized her Little Black Dress.I wore my vintage beauty to the Thrifting Atlanta holiday luncheon.





Dress- Evenings by Raul Blanco (Value Village Roswell) $7.95
Shoes- Nina (Style Closet GA) $12
Total- $19.95


I purchased this little black dress a year ago during the summertime. When I laid eyes on that massive polka dot bow and the luxe feel of the velvet bodice, I knew I had to make room in my closet for this vintage dress. It took almost another year to finally have an occasion to wear it, but it was worth the wait. It was the perfect dress for the Thrifting Atlanta Holiday Luncheon. Our theme was festive holiday affair and we can agree that this dress screams festive. 

Now, it’s time to jump into our Thrift Sisters link up!  Ayana and I launched our Thrift Sisters link up, encouraging you to post thrifted or thrifty priced items to this link up.  We are very appreciative of those who take the time to link up their great outfits.  This week’s featured Thrift Sister is Tatiana from We Shop In Heels!  We love how she styled her gorgeous tribal print poncho.  Check out her blog for some great fashion ideas at affordable prices.

Thrift Sisters Link Up: Houndstooth Shorts Suit



This week, the Thrifting Diva and I are showing you how we style houndstooh. Be sure to head over to Ayana’s blog and see how she channeled Olivia Pope in her fab coat. I finally rocked my blue houndstooth shorts suit I scored during 50 cents day at Park Avenue Thrift Outlet in Woodstock.





Shorts Suit $0.50: Alex (Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock) Retail Version HERE & HERE
Boots $9: Etienne Aigner (Goodwill Johns Creek) Retail Version HERE & HERE
Clutch $3Mossimo (Value Village Roswell) Retail Version HERE & HERE
Scarf worn as a cami $3: Rossi Rossi (B & R Thrift Store)

Who can resist houndstooth print, especially a nice crisp blue hue and at 50 cents, I could not leave that piece at the store. The shorts are really walking shorts, so the actually reach my knees. But I hiked them up to show off my favorite body part and I think the tall boots and blazer give it a nice balance too.

                                                 Do you wear shorts in the Fall?

Now, let’s jump into our Thrift Sisters link up!  Ayana and I launched our Thrift Sisters link
up, to encourage our readers to post their thrifted or thrifty priced items during our thrift party link-up.  Thank you to all of you that took time to join us. This week’s featured Thrift Sister is Oby Grace from I Spy ObyWe love how she styled her cozy white sweater with her awesome riding boots.  Check out her blog for some great fashion ideas at affordable prices.
