New Installment: Thrifting Thursday

No comments:
Hey gals (and guys). I wanted to show you all what I've found today while thrifting. So well being away for a bit and exploring new outlets when it comes to cheaper priced fashions, I've decided to explore a place where most of us overlook- or just don't want to be caught in. I came up with this installment to introduce the other side of design to you all. When people hear the words, THRIFT STORE, they tend to think of a place where soiled, old torn clothing is sold and how the previous owners got rid of them for less fortunate people blah blah blahhhh. We've all heard them and I'm hear to tell you, it's time to put it all to rest.

I bring to you THRIFTY THURSDAY where I will bring you along with me to see some of the hidden treasures most people overlook. I'll show you how to pair them up with some of the basic items you have in the back of your closet and how to find a complete outfit for a casual day out.

So just so you'll get an understanding for what I search for, here are a few pieces found during my thrifting. And I'd like to make it clear that none of what I've found is in bad condition and some still had original price tags on them.

MY STORY: BECOMING A VEGETARIAN

No comments:
So people always find it crazy when I tell them "I am a vegetarian". Like as if the only people who practice this lifestyle is hippies and earth freaks... I'm far from being a hippie, but I do care about my Planet. However, this wasn't the reason I decided to become a vegetarian.

If you didn't know already, I began modeling in 2001 and in the beginning of my career, I was an average sized young lady. Standing at 5'10" and weighing in at 125lbs. It really didn't help that I was doing Track & Field in high school and was lifting weights to tone my upper body. Well little did I know, after graduating high school my modeling would take off. I was getting the calls I wanted, different companies wanting to work with me, becoming a signature model for a couple photographers. I was doing quite well. One thing I did not continue to do was workout to maintain my muscle tone and eat well. Therefore, I become kind of like... the Amazon Woman, as they say- tall with a solid body frame, but still fit. If I was to name someone who'd remind me of this type, it is Gabrielle Reece. She's such beautiful women too btw.

You're welcome. Look at this awesome new outfit featured this week. I told you, I am having a small obsession with River Island (I had to give it a smooch) and I'm not afraid to say I'd rock it. I'm not a huge fan of Rhianna, but some of her pieces and R.I. additional pieces have me biting my tongue.

When picking out an outfit, always start with your favorite color. With my favorite color being yellow, it is easier to mix and match colors because it's a primary color (red, blue, and yellow). Let's say you're playing around with the color purple, dark/light purple, black and/or would be the safest colors to make your outfit work. However, if you are one of those who aren't afraid to try something new, you'd choose red, blue, pink, metallics and patterns.
