Weekend & Travel Uniform

You can count men for anything that falls into under both fashionable and practical.  That’s why a thrifting a scarf is November’s #12MonthsofThrifting prompt. However, we’re not just talking about any scarf here, we’re talking about bold, colorful, or printed scarves.

Brown Backpack Purse

You may have seen this bag several times around here but I think it’s time it had it’s own post. This is one of the most versatile pieces I’ve ever owned.

Fall Florals

I can’t believe it’s already October?! This month’s prompt is one of my favorites: fall florals. Fall florals are more subtle than spring and summer floral prints.

How to Thrift Booties

The prompt for September #12monthsofthrifting is to find a pair of booties, a fall essential. I always
have great luck finding booties at Goodwill, especially the location on State Road.
Here are my go-to tips to thrift booties: Always check the sole. If it’s worn down, probably not worth the purchase, even if it is $5.

Common Threads Thrift

 Common Threads Thrift, located at 22049 Lorain Road in Fairview Park opened last month and the fine folks over there invited me to check it out and host a giveaway for my thrifty readers. Anytime I visit a new thrift store, I find myself looking for a few certain elements (you can read about these elements here). Here are a few reasons why I loved this new thrift store and think you will too.

Yellow Skirt and Stripes

I spotted this H&M skirt at Goodwill Akron one night when I was hosting a Thrift Night Out and I hesitated to buy it.

Denim shirt three ways

My obsession with denim shirts started about six years ago when I found the perfect GAP denim button down at Goodwill. I quickly realized how incredibly versatile they are.

Bell Sleeves

Anyone else try to eat while wearing bell sleeves? Not a good look.

I love 70s fashion. It’s one of my favorite decades for fashion.  I find myself constantly drawing inspiration from that time, so I’m thrilled to see many of the styles – both in home decor and fashion- make a huge comeback this season.
