Happy Thirfty Thursday: To know me is to know that this dress was something else


Good Morning and Happy Thrifty Thursday!

By now you know that I'm all about transformations! This thrifted beauty did not stand a chance! Below are tips that led me to some great transformation pieces!

Here is what I look for:

1) The material- Stretch material is way more forgiving
2) Oversized- Oversized items give you more fabric to work with.
3) I usually go for prints! Prints are classic

I actually used this piece for a fashion show I did a few weeks ago! Model Shyla rocked it!

Dress:Thrifted
Shoes: Shoe Show

 With a high split and a lower neckline, I think we went from Drab to Fab!


Happy Happy Thursday!! I'm planning for a pretty busy weekend! I'll take lots of pics and share with you on Monday!

Pre- Valentine's Day Choices


I absolutley LoVe Valentine's Day! With or without a significant other! There's a lot of people in this world that I give my last heart beat to.  I'm a pretty Mushy person anyway, so this should not be surprising! 

Red and black are the colors of choice today, always looking ways to jazz it up a bit. Including TIMELESS pieces like sequin and liquid faux leather seems to do the trick! 


Look 1: Sequin shorts (Forever21)                                              Look 2: Liquid Circle Skirt (Forever 21)  



Neither of these looks are work wear appropriate as is, BUT... The shorts are really an attention getter! LOL I went with the circle skirt look, but added some black tights.

Shorts/Skirt- Forever 21

Thank you for reading!

Have a great weekend!

Spring Fever: OOTD

Thrifting is just as contagious as confidence! One of my nieces recently dropped 60 lbs (I'm so proud of her) and could no longer fit this blazer. So she gave it to me and I gladly accepted!  Floral reminds me of spring, and although this Alabama weather is playing with my emotions (and my lungs), today's temps reached the 60's!!!


 Spring Fever! I CANNOT wait until this time next month. OK that may be pushing it but at least by April we'll be riding  high on 60 or better. I love Denim on Denim and feel that Floral goes great with a lighter wash.

Blazer -Thrifted (Gifted)

Happy Humpday!

Thrifty Thursday: 2.5.15

 
Man I'm on Cloud nine... Two posts in one week! HAHA! So I visited with my older sister this weekend and she took the time point out that I haven't been consistent with my Thrifty Thursday posts. So this one is for you 'Laine! 
 
I went to a new thrift spot yesterday. Went in on a whim and I LIVED!! Had to cut back on my thrifting lately due to #BUDGETCUTS LMBO and plus since thrifting is the newest craze, the prices are going up! *rolls eyes* I saw this Jacket and said hmmmm... It's textured, it's reversible, it's colored, it's oversized, it's PERFECT! 
 

 
 
Went with the black side and rolled the blue side up...
Dress was thrifted by way of ING/ Boots came from Simply Fashions
 

2.99 with 50% off! #Score







 Happy upcoming weekend!

Quick Post: Winter White and Dark Green

It's the middle of the week and I needed a pick me up! Not sure what it is about the winter months ( I know it's a southern winter but still) that makes me want to crawl in the darkest of places and hide until the sun returns! LOL It's so hard for me to get out of the bed, to get up on time, to continue my exercise regime etc! I'd rather be under a snuggie!


I kinda went with those feelings today! This jacket/ Dress (size small) was thrifted a few weeks ago from the Salvation Army. I snagged it because I'm really into dusters right now. At first, I thought I would bleach it, and have a spotted green look. But I fell in love with it as is!




I added winter white or cream to the mix. Just to brighten things up! This pencil skirt is thrifted as well! I always wake up running, so I didn't have time to focus on face. But I grabbed the latest addition to my lippie collection (1.00 find from Z- Outlet), black Eye liner and snapped a few pics. 


Happy Humpday!!!
