Thrift Style We Crave: What to Wear on the 4th of July

Friday, July 3, 2015


Are you still stumped about what to wear for the 4th of July holiday weekend? If you are like me, getting dressed for a holiday event can be quite a task. Especially when your weekend is filled, with so many events to attend. Whether it's the usual family backyard BBQ, spending the day at the beach or heading to an evening party. Selecting the right outfit for the occasion is very important. But like any holiday, you want to look festive, but done tasteful without looking like you are wearing a costume.  Remember to shop your closet first and then try your local resale store for the missing pieces you may need. Here are a few looks from some of our favorite fashion bloggers. You can use them as style your 4th of July Style inspiration.

Events: July Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tours

Monday, June 29, 2015


Don't be surprised if you see a chartered bus rolling through the parking lot of your favorite Thrifting Atlanta store! It's just me and my Thrifting Atlanta sisters. I am so excited to host the April 18th Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour.

I will be leading our group through the Thrifting Atlanta streets. Our chauffeured bus departs from Diva Diva Boutique in Alpharetta. Then stops at Funky Flair Boutique in Marietta, Cherokee Rose Shoppe in Canton, Park Avenue Thrift Outlet in Woodstock, Best Kept Secret Consignment in Suwanee, Desu Couture Consignment in Alpharetta and Monica's Boutique and Consignment in Johns Creek. 


What I Wore: Abstract Print Open Shoulder Dress

Wednesday, June 24, 2015


I wore this abstract print open shoulder silk dress to the annual Thrift Tea Party hosted by my blogger boo NeShanta of Style Is She. I scored it from the Goodwill Grasslands location for only $7. Similar style retail for at least $20 HERE. Showing a little skin during the summer is always on trend. From back-exposing details to midriff cutouts, flesh-baring styles can be uncomfortable for those who want to try wearing the trend. Open shoulder dresses and tops are a more delicate approach, yet it is still very sexy and so playful. This style is definitely one you need to try.


Stylish Review: Groupon Coupons Give Exclusive Retail Discounts

Friday, June 19, 2015



I am sure that most of you have used Groupon to gain exclusive discounts to your favorite restaurants, spas and travel destinations. You usually have to pay upfront to enjoy the savings. If you enjoy that service, you will be thrilled to know about their newest program called Groupon Coupons

There is no upfront cost and you have access to thousands of coupons from thousands of retailers. So if you are like me and enjoy getting high-end products for a fraction of the price, then this is the program for you.

Stylish Review: Park Avenue Thrift Smyrna Grand Opening June 11th

Monday, June 8, 2015

One of my favorite thrift store chains is opening another location in Smyrna, GA. The grand opening of the new Park Avenue Thrift is scheduled for Thursday, June 11th 9:00am at 1977 S Cobb Dr SE, Marietta, Georgia 30060. This store is packed with 50,000 pieces of clothing, 2,000 pairs of shoes and 10,000 miscellaneous items. So I would suggest that you get there early for first dibs on the best pieces. Keep in mind that the color of week sale will not start until the colors are introduced into the rotation. They will add a new color on the sales floor each week. So it may take about 3 weeks for the sale color to appear. On Sunday's they will honor the TA yellow tote bag or blue coupon for 50% off. 

During my sneak preview, I walked each aisle and was very pleased with store selection. You can expect to find your favorite designer brands, vintage beauties and trendy items brand new with tags! I was very impressed with the shoe and handbag collection too. Here is a photo recap of what to expect during the grand opening and a few of my suggested items that you should score:
