Vintage Style OOTDS

thrifting

I love fall because it seems like you can have so much more fun with vintage style. You can bring in and incorporate all kinds of cool boots and accessories to an outfit and have I mentioned the colors?!😍

Some of my favorite colors to pair together are rust orange, mustard yellow and navy blue! And the occasional forrest green!

It seems like in spring and summer, it is all about the bright, fun pops of color, but if I’m being honest, I’m more into muted tones myself!

Like the colors in this outfit! This skirt is one from Topshop and I had to have it a few years back! I saw it being worn on the character of Spencer Hastings in Pretty Little Liars and freaking loved it. It’s got part academic sailor, school girl vibes going on, part Suckerpunch, Japanese anime vibes on the other end. πŸ™ŒπŸ» And it has the BEST POCKETS.

I found this skirt on eBay, believe it or not, and paid around $16 for it because one button was off of it, which I quickly fixed myself upon it arriving by mail! The white top I’m wearing was thrifted from a local Goodwill for $3.99. My mustard yellow cardigan is one I found at Ross the other day for just $5.99!

The boots I have are the Born brand. I found them at Dillard’s 5 years ago and loved their vintage look. I paid $59.99 for them, but they were originally $139, so that was a heck of a good deal!!!

This other outfit is another example of how I like to layer: boots, tights, a tank top dress and a baggy sweater over it! I got the sweater forever ago at Marshall’s so I don’t remember what I paid for it—not over $20 though—and it has become one of my go to pieces. The dress was $9.18 from Forever 21 and I loved the brown and polka dots!

I just love getting to mix modern and vintage looks, especially in fall! 🍁😍

What are your favorite colors to wear around this time of the year?

Edison’s Place:New Things on our Etsy!πŸ’‘

being thrifty, Life

I’ve mentioned it a few times on my blog, but Etsy has been one of the coolest creative outlets for my husband and I! We have so much fun finding things, doing photo shoots and styling them, and helping people find the things they’re looking for!

This 1980’s Tri Color Jacket is one such item! I loved the pastel colors and lightweight fabric of it! I paired it with high rise mom jeans, simple tennis shoes and a blouse!

Another favorite thing I’ve found lately–this 1960’s Striped Dress! πŸ‘—

It still had the original sales tags on it and came from an upscale department store, Miller’s, that used to be in downtown Knoxville.

I had the perfect boots and belt to pair with it! It has a very back to school vibe, don’t you think?

I also loved this geometric patterned skirt from the 1980’s I found! It is understated and the buttons up and down the front are so cute!

These are only a few things we’ve listed recently, but I have added a direct link to our Etsy, Edison’s Place, in the menus tab here on my blog, if you’re curious what kinds of things we have on our store! I also am going to link my YouTube Channel and connect it to my blog here also!

I hope you all are having a great week!

1990’s Denim Dress OOTD

thrifting

This summer has been full of fun!✨

Planning for upcoming trips, hanging out with friends and some spectacular thrifting finds!πŸ™ŒπŸ» Thrifting is seriously so addictive. Once you find the first few things, it’s impossible to stop!

I found this vintage, 1990’s Old Navy Denim Dress at Goodwill one day and had to have it. I love denim because it’s so versatile! The snapfront buttons going up and down the front were cute too!

Can you believe I only paid $3.49 for this dress?!

I love when you find stuff for cheap at thrift stores and then you get up to the register and it’s half off the original price too! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ» I plan on styling this dress different ways into fall as well. It’s the type of dress a shirt can be worn under or a baggy sweater can be worn over the top of!

The scarf I’m wearing is actually another vintage find that I got at an estate sale for 99 cents! I loved the colors of it and that it was a lightweight silk, perfect for transitioning from summer to fall!

Do you all love denim? What’s your favorite way to wear it? Jeans, shorts, a dress or something else? βœ¨πŸ‘–
