My friends from Vintage Swank/American Fashion Fox were kind enough to send me a few of their pieces to style. And this green striped shirt dress is the first one I am going to share with you today. I wore it Alexander Wang style with my high waisted jeans, and cut out boots. It’s definitely one of the best vintage pieces I own.

A little about these online stores though – all items they sell are highly curated by the buyers for the best of the best.

American Fashion Fox is for thrifted brand named items. They carry most of the brands that you will find at your local malls all of which can be found at thrift store prices. They only list what they would wear, so the items are all nice and trendy finds.

Vintage Swank, is for women who want to thrift but are looking for those rare finds that follow todays most recent trends. What only thrifters know is that many vintage items can be bought at low prices and are still very fashion forward in todays trends. As we both know fashion trends tend to cycle through the ages. So our items here are both vintage and new collections but all match todays woman. All items on this site start at $0.99.

I don’t know about you, but I am off to bid on some of those $0.99 dresses!

See what other pieces they sent me and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog! Let’s spread vintage love together!

Mixing Prints the Easy Way: Polka Dots and Stripes

2013-08-23 18.04.20

I have been really into pattern pants lately. I don’t know what’s going on here, but I bought two pairs over the past 3 weeks.

Last Monday I scored these polka dot beauties from Goodwill! Nothing can beat $5 pants, right?

Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything to match them, so instead I styled them using items from my own closet, including a vintage piece that belonged to my Grandma.

Here is to the 80’s!

We all love different fashion decades, and even though I am a 20’s girl at heart, 80’s fashion appeals to me and has somehow found it’s way into my closet!
