Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Loves!

First post of 2016 and I am beyond excited to see another day. The greatest gift we get everyday is the opportunity to open our eyes, take a deep breath, and start our day all over again. No we have 365 days to write our own story and I hope you take advantage of it. Forget about the hurts and pains of 2015 and look forward to the glorious 2016 that God has given you and make it the best yet. Let go of the bad habits of 2015 and pick up new and better habits this new year.

I’m excited to share this new year with all you beautiful people who take the time to read and comment and show support to my little blog. I’m excited about what 2016 has in store for this little blog and to grow and learn with all of you.

Now, as many of my closest friends know, I am a Serial-Thrifter. This is one habit that is definitely going with me into 2016.  My obsession started when I began to fall in love with vintage clothing. I don’t know about you, but i’ve realized that they don’t make clothes as sturdy as they used to. Nowadays, the material is just cheap…you wash them once and they shrink, change colors or tear apart. But when I would visit my favorite thrift stores and find something, it would last longer. I literally drive around on weekends looking for more vintage and thrift stores. Any time I go out of town, I start googling local vintage shoppes immediately.

One of my favorite vintage places to shop is called Rag-O-Rama in Atlanta, GA. If you’re in the area, go and check it out and let me know what you think. If you’re in Montgomery, AL there is also a great place that sells vintage clothing called Relly Rue Creative Studio; they always have great things there.

My outfit today is a nod to my obsession to all things vintage. I found this dress at Rag-O-Rama in Atlanta, GA and paired it with a great pair of ankle strap Guess heels. I kept it really simple and let the dress speak for itself!

So, what are some of your favorite thrift and vintage stores? Comment below and let us know what city you live in and the vintage stores you like so that we can visit them.

Psss…Make 2016 SPECTACULAR! Be Bolder, Be Happier and Never Give Up! I Love You.

    Happy new year to you too. Everyday is an opportunity to achieve great things and it’s very important to have a thankful heart as soon as you open your eyes in the morning as someone somewhere in the world wasn’t able to do the same. It’s cant be clearer like how you’ve said it, to leave every negativity in 2015 and focus on making 2016 a spectacular year. Gosh dear we have something in common here in Australia we call it op shopping and it’s my best therapy on the weekend hopping from one to the other finding gold. So true now adays things just don’t last longer. By the way am Sonia and thanks to fashion bombshell I was able to discover your amazing blog and you will be seeing me here frequently ???????????? and stalking your IG feed too.????????????Keep up the great work and stay bless Hun.
