Thrifty Sisters 

Style & Beauty

 

 

 

Hello, lovelies!

On last weekend, my mom, sister, and I went out for a brief weekend getaway.  I suggested that we go to a Goodwill.  We ended up getting some cute dresses.  This past Sunday, my sister and I wore our dresses to church.

I  found this cute, curve-hugging dress for my sister for  $5.99.  I like the lace detailing on the back. She wore a camisole underneath.

I saw this simple faux wrap dress with a nice print.  I wore it with a studded belt and studded sandals.

My mom got this dress as well that she wore to work this week.

Closet Chic Sisters: Thrift With a Twist

Closet Chic

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any personal styles from my closet.  It’s been even longer since I did a style post with my sister.  On Sunday, Jessica and I wore some thrifted garments mixed with non-thrifted garments.

Here are Jessica’s thrifted pieces:
A thrifted skirt from an estate sale  $1.00
earrings were bought from a consignment shop $2

Jessica’s skirt was the statement garment and she accessorized to complement her skirt.  I added the the belt to finish the look.image

I adore color and yellow is one of my favorite colors.  I chose to pair my dress with button down shirt for a bold summer look.  I kept my accessories simple with gold and pearls.  I chose my leopard prints wedges to add some flair since my dress and shirt are solid colors.

My thrifted piece:
Dress from Goodwill $6

Hello lovelies!

wpid-1431040780659.jpgI wanted to post this look on yesterday, and didn’t get a chance to finish the post.  I love the warm weather months because I can channel my bohemian style.  I like wearing flowing garments and earth tones.  I have always been into different prints.  I would have to say floral prints are starting be my favorite prints. I found this sheer floral print kimono cardigan (Burkes Outlet, $12.99) last weekend and I’ve worn it a few times already.  I chose a white t-shirt and dark turquoise skinny jeans to go with this look.  It’s very simple.  I wore simple white crystal studs and a gold flower ring (both of the jewelry pieces are from Old Navy for $1.99 each).  I also wore a chained statement necklace.

Hello lovelies!  Jessica and I went to Atlanta this past weekend to attend the annual World Natural Hair Show.  It was a really exciting experience to see so many women rocking their natural hair in afros, twist outs, wash-n-gos, braids, and other styles. There were other vloggers and bloggers there.

I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite YouTube vloggers Toni Daley (tonidaley.com.)  I was super excited to meet her and support your business.

Here’s what I got from Toni:

I also got some mugs from an artist called Twisted Cheri.  She makes posters and drawings of African-American women.  www.twistedcheri.com

I also got a chance to support other business and I got a chance to stock up on some hair and skin care products.

Support a Sista

What’s up beautiful people?

A little over a year a ago, I saw this YouTube video from Toni Daley where she expressed her frustrations with company who was supposed to be specialized in black hair care. Well, long story short she expressed the need for black women to support other black women’s businesses and black owned businesses. She initiated a movement called Support a Sista so that we as Black women can uplift and support one another.

Here’s the video:

I have been more strategic about supporting other sisters. I will be sharing my experiences as well as highlight sister owned businesses and services that I have had the opportunity to support. I want to encourage other sisters to do the same.
