Something Old, Something New

Best in Vintage with Buffalo Exchange

I spent a few days in Nashville last week, and during our down town I made a mad dash for the vintage shops.  Although I would never want to permanently reside in Nashville, there are tons of  work opportunities and the shopping is actually A-1.

I popped into the local Buffalo Exchange because they have some of the best vintage in town.  I also love that this place is 100% Green, meaning they have donate most proceeds to charity and they are environmentally friendly.  The store is set on a buy, sell or trade premise,  so they are simply reselling gently used current fashion items at a price that's undeniable.  They also have a vast selection of high end and vintage pieces.  I feel like the vintage buys are the best in town.

This beautiful, bright red orange coat dress immediately caught my eyes.  I was drawn to the color, but then I was sold on the texture and heaviness of it.  And I guess I couldn't leave out that it was only $11.00.

I paired my vintage coat dress with my all time favorite pair & Other Stories metallic wedge sandals.  Look a little closer and you see that I am sporting a super cute pair of Berkshire anklets.  These ankle socks are so on trend, and perfect for seasonal wardrobe transitions and adding texture and additional elements to a look.

Monochrome Moment Mixing Prints and Patterns

Hey guys, I am here with my second post of this new year, and because you guys are so near and dear I wanted to make sure that you were aware of an organization and brand that's stellar. 

In this post, I am wearing a beautiful geometric patterned Tahari dress that I scoured during a sale at my local Dress for Success office.   I stopped by to make a donation, and to my surprise they were selling a few items, in an effort to raise money for clothing to accomendatewomen needing larger sizes.  I also brought this vintage pair of authentic Prada mules for a steal.  All of the pricing was more than reasonable.   The shoes had never been worn, and neither had the dress.  The striped shirt that I paired with my amazing dress is an oldie from Zara.  I love wearing black and white, and thought it would be a very interesting look if I mixed the prints and patterns.

I am also donning a beautiful pair of Berkshire hosiery, yes the Berkshire that our mom's love.  The brand has been around for over 100 years as the finest made, best fitting, and most fashion forward hosiery on the market.  Perfect for work, play, dress-up, bridal, daytime, evenings, weekends or holidays, the 2016-2017 Berkshire Collection features hundreds of individual looks that are available in regular, curvy and maternity options.  Visit them online at www.eberkshire.com
