Dress Transformation

From this 


To this



Ahh, I'm still not sure but I feel that it is a bit short. I found this dress while thrift shopping and thought I could sell it. Once I brought it home and decided to try it on, bam!! I liked it.

Sunday's Threads: Pink Again...





Vintage and Thrifted: Dress (similar),  Belt (similar), Brooch (similar), Purse (similar), Shoes from Amazon (similar)
Hello!!

     Funny thing about me wearing a pink dress (and for the second time this month), is that I never liked the color pink. I forget why... Anyway, the past weekend was jam packed with events. I woke up on Sunday feeling super tired. I honestly just wanted to sleep in! But, I didn't. I got up and put the first dress I saw on.

This Sunday,  I also rediscover the cute shoes I am wearing. The last time I wore them was the Fall of last year. Yikes! I have grown to become such a horrible hoarder. I have things in my closet that I forget I bought at the thrift (this dress is actually a good example). I can't help but feel bad about such habit.

Well, all that is going to end. We are soon to be moving to our new house, so I will have to do some heavy closet cleaning. I will also have a huge sale on my online shoppe Retro Glam.

Stay tune for the shop updates by following me on my instagram account @shopRetroGlam. I will post more info of the sale there.

Vintage Dress Far From Here Vintage/ Vintage belt, vintage purse, vintage shoes, vintage brooch all thrifted...


Hello Loves! 

     I hope everyone is having a fabulous day...How dreamy is my "new" to me vintage dress? When I first laid eyes on this cutie it was late at night (I tend to browse for vintage on the interwebs when I can't sleep). Sadly, I could not buy it right away. A few weeks later after that night, I was surprised to see that the dress was still available and I had to beg my hubby to buy it for me as a birthday gift.  I had to contact the shop owner Seanette for a few questions. She was very quick to answer and very helpful. I finally ordered the dress and well here I am wearing it. 

I loved the details of the dress from the crochet collar, to the pleated skirt, and also the lovely sleeves! I know for sure this won't be my last purchase from this shop.

Please stop by Seaneete's shop Far From Here Vintage and take a peek at her lovely vintage items. Who knows you too might fall in love with a couple of pieces or more.

Eyeglasses and Camouflage shirt F21, Vintage Dress, vintage belt, and vintage yellow heels all Thrifted

Hello all!
      Here is a funny story, I have been hunting for a strapless dress since the Fall of 2013. I even added it to my "Look For" list. Yes! I have a list I take with me when I thrift shop, mental list that is. It keeps me from buying things I don't need. So it wasn't until Saturday that I discovered this 80's vintage dress in my very own closet. I completely forgot about it since it was put away along with other summer pieces. I must have thrifted this dress about three summers ago.

     Initially, I have been wanting a strapless dress to style it with a white collar slouchy button up shirt. Once I found my dress, I started looking through my closet for the perfect white top to wear it with only to find out that I don't own that kind of top. Ha! All of my white blouses are vintage, with funky collars, eyelet details, and silly collar trims. So I wound up wearing it with my camouflage shirt from F21.

To get a better idea of a classy way to wear that strapless dress in your closet, take a look at some style Pinspiration:







Most of these are styled with a white collared shirt, but don't be afraid to add a little twist. You can wear a fun printed top, t-shirt, or a turtle neck sweater for the fall.

you can find me on pinterest here.

Hell Bunny dress/buy here, vintage hat, vintage purse, and jean top all thrifted/ shoes F21

Hello all!

I have been wanting a dress from Modcloth, but for what ever reason I never get to set aside enough money. Well...A few weeks ago while thrift shopping I found this darling dress that happens to also be available for purchase at Modcloth here

Sadly after wearing the dress I realized that it was too big for me. I also realized that I wouldn't be able to wear it with a top over or under with out affecting it's unique look and style. So to the Shop it goes.

I hope you all have a pleasant week!

Why Not?



Dress Vintage: Available Here, body-con skirt F21/ similar, Vintage Polka dot belt/similar, White Caged sandals/ similar

Hello,
     
     I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. We have been having some nice hot summer days here in Chicago. All my cousins want to talk about is going to the lake, but since we are all very busy we haven't had a chance to plan. 

     Upon entering my summer break, I can't help but set up goals for myself. Goals that I hope to accomplish before the fall. Its in my nature to plan 24/7. I always like to have everything planned out, even if I'm not successful in accomplishing such plans. Am I the only one? 

What are some of your plans for your summer/summer break?
