Fashion Favorites: Plato's Closet

The art of thrifting is a quality I deeply admire. I have many friends who find their best threads at their local Salvation Army, Good Will, Buffalo Exchange, or Plato's Closet. It's in these places they find hidden gems that are only half the cost (or less) than the retail price it was originally sold.They walk out of a thrift store looking like a million bucks and it's amazing to me ! *Que Thirft Shop by Macklemore* Although I admire my friends' talents, I kind of get intimidated walking in to these places because there's just SO MUCH to go through...

Fashion Favorites: R & D Hipster Emporium

One thing I love about fashion is how styles and trends recycle throughout time. For example, right now a lot of 60's and 70's inspired looks are coming back into the scene.

Since I'm so short and I wear flowy tops/dresses a majority of the time, some people think I'm stick thin, when in all actuality that's not the case. LOL. I'm not fat or too skinny, but just right in the middle of the two. Still, a girl can't help feel a bit self conscious...
