Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Earrings & Dress- Funky Flair Boutique (Buy HERE)/ Shoes- Calvin Klein (Dillards; Last seen HERE)/ Necklace- Just Jewels 4 U/ Purse- Gucci (Goodwill of North Georgia)

Funky Flair Boutique sent me this fab color block dress to do a special holiday review. I enjoy styling their pieces. They are a great addition to my wardrobe. Especially this dress! The combination of the classic style and neutral color, make it the perfect go-to-outfit for any occasion. By changing up shoes and accessories, it will take me from the office to happy hour. Check out the latest Funky Flair collection online or in-person at their January 2013 boutique launch party!

Happy Thanksgiving & Black Friday Thrifting Atlanta

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Maxi - (Fashion Style Studio)/ Shoes- Mossimo (North Georgia Goodwill)/ Earrings- (Stein Mart)

Although 2012 started out with a huge disappointment, I made the best of it and turned that disappointment into a triumphant! I took the opportunity to pursue my passion full-time and  opened my very own style studio, took Swapnista on a city tour and began writing my first book about thrifting (to be released in the Spring 2013). 

To my family, friends, clients, blog community and my stylish readers-- thank you for the prayers, kind words, compliments, comments, support and everything in between. You would not understand how it all carried me through this year.  By God's grace and mercy, I am still standing. I am a living testimony! Remember that troubles don't last always, because Joy comes in the morning!!

I am also thankful that tomorrow is Black Friday! No, I won't be hitting up the retail stores, instead I am going thrifting. Especially to snag some great deals on my Fall wardrobe wish-list. One store has clothing for 99 cents and another has a $2 stuff a bag sale!! Click HERE to get more details on the Black Friday deals at my fave Atlanta Thrift Stores.

What are you thankful for today? Are you shopping retail or resale on Black Friday?

Must-Have Fall Fashion Trends To Thrift

Thursday, November 15, 2012

We all can agree that each season we update our wardrobe with some trendy pieces. For those of us on a limited budget or those of us who prefer one-of-a-kind pieces, we incorporate the trends by scoring them at the thrift or consignment store. Consider your fall wardrobe incomplete, if you do not have one of the following fashion trends:

Who does not like a floral print? It is an instant girly print and for fall it is a darker color palette. But it still brings a smile to your face. This is a blouse I found last year at the thrift store. So Fall Floral.... check!

This trend is a bit gaudy, but so regal to me. It is definitely a piece that makes a statement and will start a conversation too. I already scored this full length coat and I'm am itching to wear it to the perfect event. So Baroque Trend....check!

Why buy leather retail? The thrift stores are overflowing with luxe leather pieces. The only leather piece I have not been able to find are leather shorts. This has been on my list for a year now. But I am determined to find one!!

This season's military inspired trend is my fave because this season you won't be confused for looking like a member of the military. Since the focus this year is about the olive green and khaki hues, gold buttons and high collars, it is a more stylish, subtle and polish approach to incorporating this trend. I am still on the hunt for the perfect military inspired blaze! 

Which Fall fashion trend do you already own? What Fall fashion trends are you still thrifting for?
