Happy Memorial Day Thriftanistas!

For many people, Memorial Day is more about a long weekend, a BBQ with family and time to capitalize on all the retail sales.  However, as a current Soldier, Memorial Day is about taking a moment to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.  With all the Memorial Day events happening in Huntsville, I opted for a casual look.  Details on this look inside….

Hey Thriftanistas!

I have been receiving so many compliments about my hair that I had to write a post.  For months, I have been experimenting with hairstyles that would fit my lifestyle.  I have worn wigs, box braids, quick weaves yet for one reason or another these styles didn’t quite fit the mold.  My criteria regarding hairstyles is a little complicated but I’ll share a few of details. First, I am in the military reserves so I need a hairstyle that accommodates the Army regulations regarding my soft cap (no bulky styles, remove the box braids).  Continue reading

Hey Thriftanistas!

This warm weather has me bringing out all the clothing that has been hidden in my closet for months.  In December, J.C. Penney’s decided to close their Huntsville location and they had a huge liquidation sale.  I spent $20 for a summer wardrobe and saved $610 for brand new clothing.  Girl, that is better than thrift store prices!  This dress is one of the pieces I picked up and I couldn’t be happier with the purchase!

Happy Wednesday Thriftanistas!

This past weekend my family came to visit from Tennessee and we had a blast!  From delicious food (bbq by my dad) to great conversations with my sibling, I couldn’t ask for a better Mother’s Day.  Well, I’m not a mom yet but I know what to expect in the future when I’m expecting….lol!  Get it?  For a little family time I decided to wear this Nine West dress that I purchased from Salvation Army.  While my dad thought I was overdressed for the occasion I thought it was perfect for a sunny afternoon.  More details inside… Continue reading

Hey Thriftanistas!

Can you believe I’m back?  I have been missing my little ol’ blog featuring my thrifted fashions. However, I’m still trying to learn to balance this thing we call life!  It’s crazy when you’re excelling in one area of your life another area is suffering…I mean can’t we have it all?  When I started actively pursuing the things that mattered; a closer relationship with God, focusing on my family, military, work and my business goals, I finally found some time to blog.  I still got work to do but just know I have not forgotten about my readers!  Now let’s talk about this jumpsuit!

Hey Thriftanistas!

Hey Thriftanistas!

So, let’s keep it real!  We all know I have been on an emotional roller coaster with my hair!  I was bald, installed and everything in between!  Now, I’m on a journey – a natural one that involves self-education and maintenance of my 4c hair.  I know my road to recovery may be a long one but I’m embracing it thus far!  And yes, you can expect more posts on this topic! However, one of my first steps is protective styling with wigs!  Wigs allow you versatility of different styles without having to manipulate your own hair.  So let’s talk about this beauty from Vivica A. Fox Hair Collection….
