The sweater dress is my go to Fall dress. It's cozy, warm and still so feminine! Plus it is the perfect item for any occasion. You can wear it to the office and then head out to happy hour too. I styled my dress with grey boots and complementary hued opaque tights, plus my camel cape to keep me warm. I call this look my three shades of grey.

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?

Thrift Sisters Link Up: African Prints


This week the Thrifting Diva  and I are wearing these stunning eccentric African prints. They are fun, vibrant and make such a statement!  Be sure to stop by Ayana's blog to get the details on her amazing skirt set and those gorgeous booties too! I am wearing a drop waist maxi dress that I scored from B & R Thrift Store.






Dress $6: No Label (B & R Thrift Store)

I so love this dress. I have had for about two years and it is by far one of favorite thrifted pieces. You know how much I love prints, so when I laid my eyes on this dress, I knew I had to have it. The fit is so fabulous. I really like how it covers my entire body but has a bit of sex appeal with a plunging neckline. Such an unexpected touch!
