Since, I have been going "out" a bit more, I have been shopping very strategically for pieces that a more trendy. I always like having a nice mix to my wardrobe. Especially for those casual outings! So when I saw this trench at Funky Flair Boutique, I knew it had a space for it in my wardrobe. Every fashion stylist will tell you that a trench is a staple piece, but you have to select one that suits your style and personality. I already have the traditional classic trench, but I wanted this one because it had a bit more funk and flair! I paired it effortlessly with my t-shirt, jeans and riding boots and I think I made a great first impression too!

Thrift Sisters Link Up: Vintage Little Black Dress

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

This week Ayana and I are showing off our vintage dresses. Be sure to stop by Ayana's blog to see how she modernized her Little Black Dress.I wore my vintage beauty to the Thrifting Atlanta holiday luncheon.

Dress- Evenings by Raul Blanco (Value Village Roswell) $7.95
Shoes- Nina (Style Closet GA) $12
Total- $19.95

I purchased this little black dress a year ago during the summertime. When I laid eyes on that massive polka dot bow and the luxe feel of the velvet bodice, I knew I had to make room in my closet for this vintage dress. It took almost another year to finally have an occasion to wear it, but it was worth the wait. It was the perfect dress for the Thrifting Atlanta Holiday Luncheon. Our theme was festive holiday affair and we can agree that this dress screams festive. 

Now, it’s time to jump into our Thrift Sisters link up!  Ayana and I launched our Thrift Sisters link up, encouraging you to post thrifted or thrifty priced items to this link up.  We are very appreciative of those who take the time to link up their great outfits.  This week’s featured Thrift Sister is Tatiana from We Shop In Heels!  We love how she styled her gorgeous tribal print poncho.  Check out her blog for some great fashion ideas at affordable prices.
