Something Old, Something New

Vintage Twin set

Hey guys!!! So happy to be back posting. I’m here to share a “something old” piece that I’m really excited about. It’s a vintage twin cardigan set. The colors are beautiful, and it’s made with the most lush poly blend ever.

I paired my fun print, vintage twin set with a new pair of straight leg black jeans that I recently picked up from H&M. Even though H&M doesn’t always hit a high note with me, I will say that it’s one of the best retailers for popping in to buy BASICs.

Honored to have my brother, Mainstream Images, shot these pictures for me. He is one of my biggest supporters and suppliers for my business. He actually gifted me this lovely vintage twin set.

Paulette's Closet "No Looking Back" Fashion Show

You guys I have been doing the unexpected - modeling.  Well now that I think about it being having been a style blogger for nearly 5 years, and having my pictures taken daily and posted on this platform is a lot like being a model.  I don't know why I always place so much emphasis on not being a model, but this was such a fun experience that I will definitely do this again.  I mean, life is about living limitless, right?!?

Toward the end of the year I was asked by my dear friend, Amanda, to model in her fashion show.  She is the proud proprietress of Paulette's Closet, a vintage boutique located in Edge Alley, all of these wonderful pieces can be found in store.  So do me a big favor and stop by and play dress, I guarantee you won't leave empty handed.

Do You See this COAT

Happy start of the week guys, I hope you all are feeling as excited and motivated as I am to round out the last month of year.  I am trying my hardest to be consistent, and stay on my blogging schedule.  Oh and I want to encourage you guys to please subscribe to the blog so that you will be notified whenever I post, and receive our weekly newsletter of what's happening with SOSNU.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let's get to my outfits and this COAT.  I purchased this coat while in Dallas.  My bestie and I were doing what we do best, looking for the best thrift finds in the city when we came across this beauty.  Sadly, I don't remember much about the charity shop; however, I do recall gathering this coat from the discount table though.  Discount as $1.00.  $1 USD.  I couldn't believe my luck.  There was no question in my mind that this baby was coming home with me.  I also snagged a cute little blazer that I hope to feature soon.
