Two Stylish Kays: May 2014

Thrifted Trends: Midi Dress with Full Skirt

Dress- Jeanne Marc(Angels Vintage Boutique)
Shoes- Carlos Santana (Park Avenue Outlet Woodstock)
Handbag- Kate Spade(Goodwill Perimeter)
 
I wore this dress to our monthly Thrifting Atlanta Thrift and Brunch event. It was such a raining day in Atlanta, that the colorful print on this dress really brightened my day.
 
I scored the vintage dress from Angels Vintage Boutique. Her online boutique has so many beautiful vintage dresses, that it is overwhelming to just to select one. But the print on this dress and the detail on the sleeve made it a winner. My only complaint is that this dress has only one pocket. LOL. I never understand why some vintage dresses only have one pocket.
 
Are you like me and pick certain pieces to wear based on your mood?



Thrifted Trends: How To Wear Skinny Denim Overalls

Saturday, May 17, 2014






 



Overalls- Chip & Pepper Buy HERE (Goodwill Johns Creek)
Blouse- Carole Little Petites (Goodwill John Creek) 
Shoes- Steve Madden (Gifted from client)
Handbag- Dooney & Burke(Goodwill Alpharetta)
 
 
I think the last time I wore overalls, I might have been 10 years old. So I have always associated overalls as for kids only, but of course the cycle of fashion brings us a version perfect for us grown up, sexy, stylish chicks--- the skinny fit.
 
To get the full look, I styled the overalls with my nude pumps.  I opted for a looser fit, printed blouse to balance the tapered, sleek style of the overalls. I think it gives it a more classy look and a nice contrast too. Lastly, the cuffed legs give it a nice spring/summer look too. 
 
How do you wear your denim overalls?


Thrifted Trends: Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM

Thursday, May 15, 2014





I'm so excited that I can check off the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM from my thrift wish list. I scored this beauty from Alexis Suitcase Consignment Johns Creek location after it was posted on their Instagram page. This bag retails for around $1,400 but Alexis Suitcase resale price was under $700. Now that's a winner!

I stalk Alexis Suitcase Consignment's instagram page hourly, plus I am on their wishlist too. Additionally, I have several close friends who know how obsessed I was about this bag and whenever one was posted on IG they would let me know too. I always knew that eventually I would add this baby to my handbag collection.

Thankfully Alexis Suitcase Consignment makes luxury affordable. Their 30 day layaway plan is the perfect way for me to work this purchase into my budget. 

Do you want to score fabulous fashion for your wardrobe too? If you are in the Atlanta area, you should attend, Alexis Suitcase Consignment's Wine & Consign event on Saturday, May 17th to checkout their collection. Click HERE to RSVP.

Thrifted Trends: Denim on Denim

Thursday, May 8, 2014








Shirt- gifted from Finding Her Niche (worn HERE & HERE)
Skirt- Old Navy (Shoemisses Yard Sale) 
Shoes- BCBGirls (Alexis Suitcase Buckhead)
Handbag- Vintage(B & R Thrift Store)
 
The denim shirt is a must have! It is such a transitional piece that can be worn with any bottom. It is also a very easy piece that you can find at the thrift store, so you do not have an excuse for not owning one. I have done the denim on denim look before HERE. But this is my first time wearing denim shirt with a denim skirt. In fact, I haven't worn a denim skirt since high school LOL. As they say, fashion trends will always back again.
 
How do you rock your denim on denim?
 
 

Thrifted Trends: Floral Jumpsuit

Tuesday, May 6, 2014






Jumpsuit- Byer Too! California (Goodwill Roswell)/Shoes- Aldo(House of uBuhle)/Handbag- Louis Vuitton (Goodwill Johns Creek)
 
Yes I am a bit obsessed with jumpsuits and rompers too. They are the perfect go-to outfit for spring/summer. I scored this jumpsuit from Goodwill in Roswell. It was love at first sight because of the plunging back. It is so unexpected right? I will give you a heads up too. I am wearing my Aldo peep toe shoes with everything. They are so comfy and a great complement for every outfit! I scored them from House of uBuhle during the Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Week pop-up shop.

Stylish Review: Vintage Swank Jumpsuit

Friday, May 2, 2014







Jumpsuit- Kristi San Francisco(Vintage Swank)/Shoes- Aldo(House of uBuhle)/Clutch- Mossimo (Value Village Roswell)/Necklace- (I Heart Jewelz)
 
I usually shop for vintage pieces at thrift stores. But the team over at Vintage Swank invited me to check out their online store. Vintage Swank is an auction based ebay store specializing in vintage pieces. The bidding starts at 99 cents for each item. As I browsed through the online inventory, this accordion pleated jumpsuit immediately caught my attention. I loved the fact that it looked like a maxi dress but really a jumpsuit. Plus the amazing colorful print, made it a perfect complement too. I could not wait to get my hands on this piece. Shipping was fast and the piece was exactly as it was described.
 
Check out their sister EBAY store American Fashion Fox for resale, trendy and vintage fashion. Be sure to join their email list too, to get updates on the launch of there new online store. 
 
Do you shop online for vintage pieces? What do you think of my jumpsuit?
