Stylish Review: LuLaRoe Julia Dress

Monday, January 23, 2017

I am so excited that I had the opportunity to review LuLaRoe, a clothing line that I recently discovered. Tiffany King, a LuLaRoe independent consultant reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a few pieces from their collection. I had never heard of this clothing brand before. But after reading the reviews, learning more about the collection and the company structure, I was very intrigued and more than ready to give it a try. In case you are not familiar with LuLaRoe, their collection of women’s clothing, include dresses, skirts, cardigans and leggings. Tiffany sent me the Julia DressLindsay KimonoLeggings and the Classic-T.

Today, I will review the Julia Dress.

Events: January 2017 Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tours (RECAP)

Friday, January 20, 2017

What I love more than thrift shopping, is to share my passion and be an inspiration so others would try thrift shopping too. In 2011, I started the Thrifting Atlanta community because I wanted to get the message out to as many people that I could, here in Atlanta and nationwide. Today our social network of over 30K members who are thrift shopping veterans and newbies, resale business owners and "thrifting" fashion bloggers. We enjoy thrifting at thrift, consignment and vintage shops. Through our in-person events including monthly thrift shopping bus tours, fashion swaps and our annual Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Week, we spread the joy and art of thrifting in the city we affectionately call home: ATLANTA!

The bus tours are a great way for thrifting newbies and experts, to learn more about the great thrift stores in Atlanta. We travel on a chauffeured bus to shop up to ten thrift, vintage and consignments stores on one weekend (Saturday and Sunday) each month. Shoppers enjoy exclusive discounts at each store and get a bag lunch too. But most importantly are the friendships developed during the day.

Last weekend we visited the following stores:
InTown Thrift, Goodwill Piedmont Store, Alexis Suitcase Consignment Buckhead, Out of the Closet Thrift Stores, My Best Friend's Closet Consignment, Ecologie Vintage, Cherokee Rose Shoppe, Buckhead Thriftique and Goodwill Johns Creek.

Check out a brief photo recap our thrift shopping day.

Thrifting Tips 101: Leave Thrift Store Empty Handed

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

IT'S OK TO LEAVE THE THRIFT STORE EMPTY HANDED: The joy of thrift shopping is being able to find items that you love at a good deal. You will have your good days and you will have some bad days. The good days are when you find so many items it is hard to decide which ones will make the ultimate cut. But the bad days are when you go and do not find anything worth even trying on. Trust me it happens to all of us, the thrift veterans and the newbies too. However, that should not leave you disappointed! It is OK to leave the thrift store empty handed. 

New thrift shoppers define thrift shopping success as leaving with a bag of stuff. They buy things just because they are on sale or "it's only a dollar". After a while your closet will be filled up with stuff you do not love. Do not ever feel that you have to buy something to validate your thrift shopping trip. Don't ever think that it was a waste of time, just because you did not buy something. Just know that you can go thrift shopping another day! The main thing you do not want to do is to waste money buying items you have no use for. 

How do you feel when you go thrift shopping and leave the store Empty Handed?
