Tips to Thrifting

Have you ever dreamed of a wardrobe filled with beautiful, stylish, timeless pieces that are sure to catch an eye? Twirling in a floral maxi with a fedora and a satchel. Leaving a smile every place you go? I thought I was the only one! But my dream is a reality! As I looked at trends this year I sit back a wonder, "Haven't I seen that before?". And then it dawns on me that I indeed have! Trends leave and come back like clockwork. First its in, then its out! But of course who always follows the trends? But for those who like to keep up with whats trending then you don't always want to spend all of your money trying to "keep up". That is why I am here to give you another alternative, THRIFTING!

Thrifting  is just buying used clothes, and I am here to give you ladies a few tips to make you thrifting adventures the best that they can be!

1) Be Humble- A lot of people love nice, quality clothes, however, they think that they have to be bought at Saks,Macy's, Neimans, etc. And believe me those are very nice places to buy clothes, but it is also not bad to buy used clothes. When contemplating about going thrifting, do not go because it is "in" but go because you want to find, cheap, quality, stylish clothes. Do not go in hiding praying to God that no one sees you! Just say, "hey I am here to be guaranteed a deal!".

2) Have Enough Time- When you are thrifting you want to make sure that you have enough time to look through everything because you never know what you may find!

3) Go in knowing what you are looking for- If you do not do this then you are going to be looking forever, and spending way more then what you expected because thrifts have good finds! When thrifting at least have an idea.

4) You are not limited!- Just because you buy a piece one way does not mean you have to wear it that way! You can add or take way! It is your world! Do what you want to do!

5) Good Neighborhoods- I hate saying this but I have to say it. A lot of quality clothes would be in in middle to upper class neighborhoods. When I go I go out of the city to buy good finds!

6) The bigger the better- I love going to larger thrift stores because of the number of options.

7) Just say thank you- You don't have to tell everyone where you got you look, so forget the "Oh by the way I spent five dollars for the entire look!" Just say thanks!

8) Be prepared to leave empty- You are not always going to find what you are looking for so don't put your hopes so high!

9) Ask!- Ask when they are having new shipments! Most people will tell you if they have new things in the back, and when they will be out, and they will also tell you when their new shipment will be in! This way you can get what you are looking for before everyone else even knows that new things are in.wink wink!

10) Wash before wear!- This is important because everyone does not wash their clothes before they are given way, plus you never know what happens to the clothes before you buy them. It would also be a good thing to get a good dry cleaners.

Have fun thrifting !

God Bless!

DIY Denim Purse

Hello Dolls!

 I had a little project that I created last night. I had a old pair of jeans that were too big for me and I decided to make a denim purse from the jeans. Here we go!!

Pair of Jeans

1. Cut Jeans right across the crotch of the jean

2. Turn inside out and pin the bottom of the purse to prepare of sewing

3.Begin to sew across with needle and thread, after threading begin to thread again going the other way

4.Turn right side in and begin to add the chain and flowers ( I made them from the left over denim and black ribbon.) You can add whatever you want, fabric paint, broaches, pins, anything!

5. And Voila! A new denim bag that you did yourself!

Have fun with your bag!

Fashion Tip: Back Me up!

Hello Dolls!
 OK, quick tip ladies! I know if a lot of you are like me (a 22 year old with the memory of a 72 year old.ha ha) you lose the backs to your earrings. I do not know why but mine always seem to get lost. So while I was shopping yesterday at Micheals (I am so your DIY kind of girl) I ran across a pack of earring backs! Awesome right! I needed them anyway for my own personal handmade jewelry but I also will have them when I lose a back! That's your quick Fashion Tip!


Beauty Tip: Smooth Lips for Spring

Hey Guys!
Ever wonder why your lips chap? I did! It seems as if every winter my lips seemed to crack, chap, and dry so much! I hate the feeling of lipstick over dry lips which make the lipstick or gloss look gross! So I was talking to my friend and he gave me the perfect remedy for chapped lips.

 ( A Lip Exfoliator!) I know! It is a simple process that only takes 1 minute and you can find the ingredients right in your kitchen cabinet.

In small bowl or even in your hand(which can be kind of messy) mix the honey and sugar (a very small amount). Rub over your lips after your wash your face. You can rub this over your lips with your fingers or lightly with a toothbrush. And wash off! The result: Smooth Lips! Tip: Finish with a lip balm or even Petroleum Jelly.
