EVENTS: JUNE 2019 THRIFTING ATLANTA BUS TOURS (RECAP)

Tuesday, July 2, 2019


What I love more than thrift shopping, is to share my passion and be an inspiration so others would try thrift shopping too. I host the Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour and take over 50 ladies on a chauffeured bus to shop up to six thrift, vintage and consignments stores. They enjoy exclusive discounts at each store and get a bag lunch too. But most importantly are the friendships developed during the day.



Our June bus tour shopped the following stores:



Here is a photo recap of the day!

What I Wore: Vintage Strapless Dress + Red Fascinator Hat

Monday, May 6, 2019




I attended the Alpha Derby Weekend at the Georgia World Congress Center. It is an annual fundraising event held on the first weekend of May, centered around the style and pageantry of one of the most well-known horse races in the world, The Kentucky Derby. This was my third year attending and I enjoy it because it is a party with a purpose, plus I love dressing up and wearing a derby hat. 

Eight chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. from across the metro-Atlanta area all collaborate to host a first-class experience while benefiting local non-profit education foundations. 

What I Wore: Swimsuit Coverup + Bodycon Dress

Friday, May 3, 2019




Swimsuit cover ups make a fashion statement on the beach and off the beach too. Especially the cover-ups that have a beautiful print. I scored this cover-up for $1 from Out of the Closet Thrift Store during the Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour. I styled it with a pink bodycon midi dress.


CANDYTOPIA EXTENDS IN ATLANTA FOR SIX MORE WEEKS

Wednesday, May 1, 2019




ATLANTA - In early February, Candytopia, the candy-coated experiential adventure that brings a dreamworld candy factory to life, officially opened the doors of their Atlanta location at EDENS Lenox Marketplace (3535 Peachtree Road NE). After drawing sold out crowds to the Buckhead location, Candytopia is thrilled to announce a one time 6-week extension of its immersive confectionary wonderland in the heart of ATL through July 28, 2019. Candytopia in Atlanta has been a hotspot for locals to enjoy with their friends and family including guests such as Usher, T.I., Lil Yachty, Ludacris, and Kandi Burruss. They anticipate tickets for the extension to sell out quickly due to previous demand.


What I Wore: Maxi Skirt + Romper

Monday, April 22, 2019


Happy Earth Day! Did you know that second to oil, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter in the world. Thrift shopping is small way to make a difference to make sure that clothing does not fill up our landfills. If everyone in the US bought just ONE item used instead of new in 2019, it would save nearly 6 billion pounds of carbon emissions. ⁣⁣

In honor of Earth Day, I wore my maxi skirt that I recently thrifted from Goodwill Conyers. I paired it with a shorts romper that I styled as a top.

What I Wore: Denim Jumpsuit and Duster

Monday, March 4, 2019


For the past 16 years, Park Tavern in Piedmont Park brings a taste of New Orleans to Atlanta via their annual Oyster Crawfish Festival. I was so excited when Wendy of Dressing For Me invited me to tag along. The weather was perfect and it is always a blast to hang out with my blogger babes. I wore my super comfy Eshakti denim jumpsuit. It has a nice stretchy waist to allow me to eat as much crawfish as my heart desires. My thrifted duster and crossbody bag were a perfect complement too.
