Vintage and Thrift: Leather Jacket Vintage Dress


Yes, it is cold outside but we can still look cute during the cold weather. Spring is just around the corner. That's the positive way of looking at the recent chilly weather we've been getting. Cold weather won't stop me from wearing a dress, vintage dress that is. 
I've had the Armani Exchange Leather Jacket for 8 years and I still love it.

Thrifted this dress two years ago while in Detroit.

JEWELS REVIEW: Frock You Vintage in San Diego

Thanks to Ayana of Thrifting Diva for introducing me to Frock You Vintage.  I visited this little gem while in San Diego and was very impressed with their selection. I'll definitely be back and its a must go if you're ever in the area.  They mostly carry a wide range of eras, 40's through the 80's.  All of the items inside were in great condition. I love the fact that the clothes are arrange by eras.  The store is small but they have additional great outside section which has tents set up to showcase some of the other items they offer.  Clothing that were outside in their "Frock You Too" division where the condition was taken into account and a discounted price was offered. I scored vintage  80's style dress from the outside section for a fraction of the original price that was offered.  Yaye me! (the negotiator)
 
The prices are across the board. Vintage varies. It's all up to you on what you will pay for or what is considered expensive.  You'll easily find dresses and they are adorable and one of a kind.
 
Keren of Two Stylish Kays , I wonder if the beauty she's holding on to made it home with her.

Vintage and Thrift: Mod Style Vintage

Smyrna Thrift Store has won my heart after scoring this Lane Bryant dress for $5.95.   This dress was a sample piece because the inside lining was incomplete plus the tag had sample written on it.  I had to do some minor adjustments which didn't cost me a dime.  I learned a few thing or two from watching my Mom as a little girl  as she made dresses. After doing some research, I could not find this dress or a similar piece by Lane Bryant online to determine the age or the retail price of the dress.  I couldn't find much information but what I do know is that I adore the dress! The color and style is truly vintage inspired

Vintage andThrift: Sam Edelman Flats

Heels are always my first choice but sometimes I have the need to just chillax and look cute in a fab pair of flats.  I found these cute Sam Edelman two toned flats for $4.50 from Smyrna Thrift Store in Smyrna, Georgia.  These beauties usually retail for $110.00.  They were hardly worn and comfortable too. 

Smyrna Thrift Store Score $4.50
