THRIFT STORE FIND: CHRISTMAS EVE AT PRIME RIB

We’ve been attending Holiday Parties throughout December, but there’s that one outfit you save for the main event, and for me, that is Christmas EVE. Every year for Christmas Eve, my family and I participate in a fine dining experience at The Prime Rib, a swanky steakhouse restaurant in DC. This restaurant has a strict no jeans, hat, or casual wear policy, so tonight’s dress … Continue reading THRIFT STORE FIND: CHRISTMAS EVE AT PRIME RIB

THRIFT STORE FINDS: WINTER CHIC

December 21st marks the first day of winter. It’s time to put the light jackets away and dig into the back of the closet to retrieve the warm sweaters, boots, and heavy coats, but don’t forget the suede skirt, silk blouse, and booties for those posh events in December. I wore a beautiful high-waisted fitted suede skirt with a split up the middle and a … Continue reading THRIFT STORE FINDS: WINTER CHIC

THRIFT STORE FINDS: FALL DATE NIGHT

Photo Cred: Justin Featherstone @olotparkinglot Sometimes all you need is $3.25 to achieve the Fall Date Night look.

THRIFT STORE FIND: A CORPORATE STATEMENT

Photo Cred: Justin Featherstone @olotparkinglot Sometimes a spark of color is what you need to brighten up the corporate atmosphere. It also gives your co-workers a glimpse of your personality. I learned in Marketing that color has meaning, and many companies use it to evoke a feeling in their customers. It’s the same way in fashion; this multi-color silk blouse with a white collar and … Continue reading THRIFT STORE FIND: A CORPORATE STATEMENT

Thrift Store Finds: Fall is Back!

It’s that time of the year again; the leaves are falling, the days are getting shorter, and the temperature gradually decreases. Fall gives us the time to prepare for winter. You don’t need a heavy coat, but a nice blazer will do to keep you warm for those cool mornings and comfortable for those warm afternoons. This stylish forest green boyfriend blazer is in brand … Continue reading Thrift Store Finds: Fall is Back!

THRIFT FINDS: GOODBYE TO SEPTEMBER

As we say goodbye to September, I have to acknowledge one of my favorite pieces from this month: the Lucky Brand’s white boyfriend overalls. Before the weather got cool, I would wear my boyfriends’ overalls on a day outing with a bronze tank top and heels to match or wear this with tennis shoes and a fitted t-shirt to achieve the girly tomboy look. I … Continue reading THRIFT FINDS: GOODBYE TO SEPTEMBER

VINTAGE FINDS: JOURNEY TO MAKETTO

I love getting dressed up to go to new places! This weekend, I ventured out to Maketto to indulge in authentic Cambodian/Taiwanese cuisine. This place is unique; it has a lovely Jungle Bungalow aesthetic outside on the upper level that reminds me of an old Vietnam war movie scene where the soldiers are getting drinks at a local bar. My vintage silk Bedford fair skirt … Continue reading VINTAGE FINDS: JOURNEY TO MAKETTO

CONSIGNMENT FINDS: A PERFECT SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Sometimes after church, I like to link up with my friends for brunch, so finding a suitable transition attire for both church and brunch can be tricky. Although I want to look appropriate for church, I don’t want to look too conservative for brunch afterward. This long light blue pleated skirt with a simple white tie-hem tank top was perfect for both occasions on a … Continue reading CONSIGNMENT FINDS: A PERFECT SUNDAY AFTERNOON
