I’ve been madly thrifting and collecting new pieces. I found this dress and handbag while at an estate sale in Little Rock. The lady who owned it had a fabulous collection and impeccable taste. I even found some furniture pieces while I was there.

Here’s one of the other pieces I found at the same sale.. I love the back detail of the chair. I’m thinking If I can get a beautiful velvet to pull some color out of the back I can fix up the seat with it. I’m not sure the age of the chair or anything so if anyone knows I’d love to hear what the age is. P.s…sorry for the messy room.. I just snapped this picture really quick.

Have a great week! 🙂

I wish I could have posted the full set earlier because I absolutely loved doing this shoot with Myranda. We did three separate outfit shoots. We found a great spot in Little Rock for this set. It really speaks for itself. I will be posting the other ones as soon as possible because It’s exciting to see the finished product and I really wanna share. We are currently talking about a fun shoot for July – It will be a retro bridal shoot and I can’t wait!

This blush pink dress was a thrift find in Hot Springs. Adding the silk colorful scarf highlighted the neckline. It’s a classic look that can be more fun for a date night than just a typical LBD.

Layering for comfort is a must in the winter, especially in the colder areas!. Knee high socks are in, but like some other pieces the socks can completely change the tone of the outfit. I prefer to wear tights with the knee highs for a more sophisticated look. This is my go- to comfort look when It’s freezing outside.

I’m all about dressing up and feeling great about how I look. I’m all about a slinky, sexy look that makes you feel confident.

The intricate detail of the blue silk and black velvet matches well with an otherwise simple outfit.

I was inspired by the dark brown makeup palette of the 1930’s, though I kept it fairly light to match my skin tone.

What’s your favorite date night look? 🙂

This 100% silk skirt came from Goodwill! The pattern is somewhat art deco, and the belt added emphasis to the irregular lines. I had been looking for a replica of the Valentino shoes I like, and these were a cute and affordable find. I decided to use makeup that popped while using a more neutral blouse. I used gold accessories to bring it all together. I thought this ivy would be a nice border while it’s still around – green things tend to disappear quickly around here when fall begins!

Let me apologize for the post being a day late! The past few days have been busy.

I went back to East Ninth Vintage (where I got the Neiman Marcus coat that I wore here), and I had a wonderful experience. I went right in looking for a wide brimmed hat, one that was a little more contemporary. I had been looking around for more local boutiques and shops, because I’ve always felt that you find the most unique pieces in places like these. I talked to Dayna Duncan, the proprietor, about what I was looking for. She went out to her car and brought back the perfect hat.

I wanted to bring in a spring pattern, now that the weather has been a little more mild. I really loved how the texture, and color in the hat brought together all the different shades,  I made my outfit complete with the yellow stone ring, which I wanted to stand out against the cool colors.

Shopping Local:

Blue brimmed hat: East Ninth Vintage:$15    

Long Sterling silver necklace: The Box Turtle in Hillcrest: $31

My other pieces:

Floral top: Forever 21: $9

Blue textured pants: Banana Republic sale: $8 (The big sale after Christmas! I ended up with a lot of great slacks for cheap!)

Calvin Klein sandals: Goodwill: $4

Amethyst sterling silver ring: T.J. Maxx: $30

I found this amazing faux fur coat at a yard sale awhile back, and I’ve paired it with my OBEY shirt I got while I was in California.  I’m not usually a big fan of animal print patterns, but when it’s paired properly it doesn’t have to look cheap.  I wanted to add layers onto the outfit to give it a more slouchy look, so I used my double chained necklace to add dimension.  Whenever I imagine a look I’m going for I always try to keep the layers very clean, so it doesn’t overwhelm the ensemble.

One of my go-to outfits during the colder months is a sweater dress over tights and some tough boots. It’s always such an easy outfit to throw together, but for some reason it always looks well put-together. Since the colors on this dress are so bold and the pattern is so detailed, I made sure to simplify the rest of my ensemble so I didn’t draw attention away from it.
