Thrift Haul of the Week: Vintage Tulle Skirt Crinoline Petticoat

Monday, February 2, 2015

I just came back from spending the weekend in New Orleans, with my Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority line sisters. We coordinated a Beta Upsilon chapter reunion during the Dillard University Bleu Devil Classic. It has been almost 20 years since we all became members of our beloved sisterhood and to commemorate this milestone, we included a photo shoot as a part of the weekend festivities. 

Dress (worn as a top) $7- No Label (Goodwill Johns Creek) Worn HERE/ Similar HERE
Shoes $32- Sam Edelman Scarlett Pumps (Upscale Resale Consignment) Worn HERE
Vintage Petticoat (worn as a skirt) $45- No Label (Angels Vintage Boutique) Similar HERE
Total $84

When I found out that our photo shoot would be Solange's wedding picture inspired, and we had to wear all black, I knew that I had to find my vintage tulle crinoline skirt. It's the ultimate piece that makes a stylish statement, especially for such a memorable photo shoot. After many weeks of shopping around, I found exactly what I was looking for at Angels Vintage Boutique. Most importantly, it was within my budget too. I styled it with my sequin mini dress, worn HERE and my Sam Edelman Scarlett Pumps, worn HERE. I am so happy that I can finally cross off vintage tulle crinoline skirt from my thrift wish list! My dreams of owning one came to a reality. Click HERE for a photo recap of our weekend.
