Thrifting: for the love of vintage

I went thrifting yesterday in celebration of the lovely weather.

I visited Wild Duck Soup Emporium, Centerville Marketplace (restocked my booth), & Shop Til It Stops (a clothing thrift store that supports battered women)

This is Fondue Vintage….located at Wild Duck Soup Emporium on the Centerville Square in Tennessee. I LOVE the charming colors she has in the booth.  Check out her Etsy store here!

I picked up this vintage dress and blazer for only two dollars!!!!! (and the colors go hand in hand with the colors chosen for Fondue Vintage’s booth space. I love it! Especially with the fuchsia lipstick.)

Navy Blue School Boy Blazer with Gold buttons and plumb liner. I’ve been looking for one like this for a long time now… hard to find the exact cut I wanted, not to bulky. And I couldn’t beat the $1 price tag. All I had to do was cut out the shoulder pads.

I paired it with a vintage red clutch with a gold detail and then reached for some of my trademark inherited gold jewels then realized that it was time to balance the outfit out with some a little more recently created. So, instead I tossed on a copper beaded bracelet which states: Peace, Happiness, Hope.

Well, that’s going to have to conclude this I’m afraid because I have a Saturday afternoon engagement which requires some cooking (and showering and outfit styling 😉 )

Remember! SHOP LOCAL! There are hidden treasures in your town no matter where you are. And don’t put a price tag on style. Meaning the opposite of what it sounds like…… don’t pay for a name. Go thrifting and look for those unique finds that don’t pang you with financial guilt but instead give you a feeling of victory as you march into the party wearing something no one else has and you only paid a buck for!!!!
