This week the Thrifting Diva and I are wearing black and white. It really seems to be one of our favorite trends this season. Be sure to stop by Ayana's blog for details on how she styled her casual chic look. I have first dibs on her coated black denim jeans. I wore my vintage tuxedo style jumpsuit.

I stop at the thrift store at least 2-3 times a week to fulfill my thrift wish list and also to see what I can add to my closet. My monthly thrift budget is $50. When deciding if I will purchase an item, I always think about how I will incorporate it with my current pieces. If I can't make the item into an outfit immediately or I don't know how I would style it, I will not purchase it. This is a great way for me to keep my closet filled with pieces that I love.
So this week I visited Americas Thrift Stores in Marietta, GA. This store is huge with racks and racks of clothing, shoes, shoes, household knick knacks and furniture too. Clothing and shoes are organized by size. There are 2 color tags that are an one sale. Once color is additional 50% off and the other color is 30% off. You can also return items within 30 days for a store credit. Very unusual for a thrift store.
I spent about 2 hours in the store and a scored the following five blouses and two skirts for under $30:
Missoni by Target $3.99

I scored this Michael Kors Brena Peep Toe Booties from the Park Ave Thrift Store in Duluth. I saw them in the glass case, when I was getting ready to check-out. I asked the cashier to see them and as soon as I touch them, I knew that they had to come home with me.

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.
