Thrift Haul of the Week: Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Here is a look at my Thrift Haul of the week! Most of these pieces, I scored these during the Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour I hosted this past weekend. We were chauffeured around on a chartered bus to several of my favorite resale stores in Metro-Atlanta. Here are a few of my favorite finds!

Both of these pieces are from America's Best Thrift Store in Marietta. This color block jacket was everything! My mom actually picked this out for me! And you know I am a sucker for vintage dresses! This one fits me so well. I love it's nautical inspired style.

I scored these pieces from Divas Closets of Atlanta. I fell in love with this Cynthia Rowley dress. Isn't the lemon print amazing. Then the vintage birdcage fascinator....OMG, my heart skipped a beat when I saw I had to have it!! And lastly those jeweled clip-on fierce!! 

I scored this vintage sweater dress from Woodpecker Vintage.It reminded me of a men's sweater vest. Don't you think? It is perfect for Fall and I can't wait to rock it!

My mom picked up this Forever 21 Cape from Park Ave Thrift in Roswell. It still has the tags on it! The original price $27.80. She said she thought is was perfect for me and I couldn't agree more! She knows her daughter's style very well.

Which is you favorite? What have you thrifted this week?

Thrifted Trends: How To Wear a Denim Shirt

Friday, August 16, 2013

Denim Shirt- gifted from Finding Her Niche/ Skirt- NFCC Thrift Stores/ Shoes- Embellish Boutique

The denim shirt is a classic and versatile staple that every women must have! It is the alternative to a denim jacket when you want to wear something a little lighter. But when I was complaining that I did not have one anymore, my sister in thrift aka Finding Her Niche immediately told me that she had four shirts and would gift me one of them. I was so excited and could not wait to get my denim shirt. 

It was perfect. It complements the busy print of this midi skirt and makes it look more relaxed. I opted to tie it in the front instead of tucking it in the skirt. The denim shirt is a classic, versatile wardrobe staple that can be worn several ways and with a variety of bottoms. I warn you ahead of time that you will see this shirt several more times on this blog. 

How do you wear your denim shirt?

Thrift Shopping: Embellish Plus Boutique

Embellish Plus Boutique, a plus-size consignment boutique, hosted the Thrifting Atlanta Thrift and Brunch Event this past Sunday. We received an extra 50% off our purchase on consignment items and an extra 25% off new items.  I had a great time and will admit that I wasn't sure what I could score. But  I shopped the shoes and accessories section and added some new pieces to my wardrobe. Here are a few pictures from my thrifting adventure.
