Thrift Style We Crave: Oneika from Virginia

Friday, May 15, 2015

This week we crave the thrift style of Oneika from Virginia. Although she went thrifting with her mom when she younger, she did not immediately fall in love with thrifting. As an adult, she visited Plato's Closet and Goodwill and scored a few fashionable pieces that were New With Tags! Then recently she stalks Instagram for more unique pieces and now she considers herself head over heels in love with thrifting!

"I was inspired to wear this outfit because I love vintage dresses! I featured this sailor-inspired look for as a business casual outfit-of-the-day style post on my blog."

Vintage Montaldo's Blue/white stripe Tennis Dress (C.U.T.E Boutique) $10
Weaved Clutch- Gift from friend
Vintage Earrings- from @breewylde (IG) $1
Necklace/bracelet- @O2chicboutique (IG) $12
Madison brand Floral Wedge- ShoeDazzle $15

Her favorite place to thrift: I really don't have a favorite place because I thrift at many different places on Instagram that I love to shop from. My favorite storefront to visit is Cute Unique Trendy Essentials Boutique  (C.U.T.E) in Richmond, V.A.

Her favorite part of thrift shopping: What I enjoy most is going on the hunt searching IG pages and stores for unique off the wall head turner pieces that will get people talking.

"My shoes inspired this outfit! I had just got then in the mail the previous day and thought I can finally wear my jean shirt and remembered I had this blouse and belt to pull the entire look. I attended a Fashion Week Event and got so many compliments. Several people even asked why I wasn't on the runway!"

Her most treasured find: I can say all my finds are treasured finds because they are all hard to part with. Well it's one piece that I just got from my moms closet it was a African top and bottom that I haven't worn yet!

"This day I just wanted to mix prints which I love to do and do it often. I try to mix it up and show people that they don't have to be scared to wear different prints and still look stylish and fabulous."
