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?

Thrift Haul Score of the Week: Vintage Stenay Black and White Sequin Dress




You all know that I am slightly obsessed with sequins, but I have been dreaming about this Stenay dress ever since I saw this picture on pinterest. Those sleeves are such a statement.  


Then recently, about a month ago, one of my thrift sisters, posted a picture (see above) of her fab find- a Stenay blouse! So I commented that it was beautiful and I posted again how much I wanted to find a vintage beauty of my own. 



Dress $7: Stenay (Goodwill Snellville) buy HERE and HERE

Fast forward to this past weekend and guess what, I scored my Stenay sequin dress for only $7 at the Goodwill in Snellville. It fits like a glove and I can't wait to wear it during the holidays! I can finally scratch this piece off of my thrift wish list.

Thrift Sisters Link Up: Short Kimono and Skinny Jeans


This week, the Thrifting Diva and I are showing you how we style our skinny jeans. Be sure to head over to Ayana’s blog and check out her super chic look! I am crossing my fingers and toes that I can nab that crop top from her. I styled my skinny jeans with a bathroom robe gifted by my thrift sister Rhonda Thompson.






Clutch $49: Fendi (Alexis Suitcase Consignment Sandy Springs), similar HERE 
Shoes $5: Steve Madden (Judith's Resale Shop), similar HERE 
Jeans $5: No Label (Park Ave Thrift Duluth), similar HERE
Robe $0: No Label (Gifted), similar HERE
Total $59


Yes I am wearing a bathroom robe, but styled as a short kimono. My thrift sister Rhonda scored this beautiful printed robe and knew that I would love it. So she gifted it to me! To make it look like a kimono, I simply cut off the self tie sash, folded over collar and wore it open. 
How do you rock your skinny jeans?
