March Winners

The anticipation is over. The March results are in. A special thanks to Analisa Chase for taking the time to judge the entries.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the April contest and to those who won!  I was amazed and inspired by your “thrifted” clothing combinations. I have to up my game to compete with y’all (chuckles) because everything I saw was awesome!!!  I feel as though I was able to take away a piece of who you are, which is pretty down right cool. Thank you for that opportunity. My motto ‘Style is personality and personality is style’ is so true, in that, you really are what you wear and show off to the world.  Your appearance defines, inspires, and motivates you. It is YOU.  What you wear inspires and motivates others to look better—especially when they see it being done so effortlessly.  So thank you for sharing!

There are plenty of different reasons that people shop at thrift-stores, boutiques, consignments, flea markets, etc., I suspect that for many, it feels nice to buy something we like while saving a couple of bucks. It also allows us to let our inner artist shine through our creative composition of apparel.

I’m very pleased that I was asked to be a guest judge on Thrift Store Runway for the month of April.  I reviewed each and every one of the entries and took massive notes on each, narrowing it down to five. The criteria I used to streamline the decision were:

  • Creativity (Uniqueness/randomness)
  • Trend Factor (Is it seasonally modern)
  • Thrityness ($$$ price of item(s) purchased)

Thank you once again for showing us all how to thrift in style!

Phoebe – Spring Essentials March Winners

Spring Essentials

Totally Spring 2014!!! This great outfit is easy for anyone to sport!  The Chambray denim shirt dress is effortless, easy to wear, and flatters all body types for spring. Throw it on, and you’re out the door in seconds.  The cute fedora adds the boyish touch, which is always cute and charming. A comfortable sandal never let any gal down either.  For a chic vibe, add the aviators—that’s a never fail!

WOW!!! Great men’s style is in this outfit.  It’s fresh, cool, has lots of texture, just the right amount of pattern, and is a layered look.  Love, love, love this.  The classic vest and jacket is a key piece in any man’s wardrobe.  You can dress this up or down or wear individual pieces by themselves or altogether.  This is a great transition outfit from winter to spring too.  Can’t believe the prices on these items, awesome!

 

Troy How to Rock the Kimono March Winners

How to Rock a Kimono

This outfit boasts a brilliant color and item combination that commands attention!  I adore how bright the pieces are, the differing textures, and the utilization of layers. The Kimono is fantastic and truly makes a statement.  Just like the one above, this also makes for a great transition outfit.  I, for one, am giving’ it two thumbs up!  It’s a fierce grouping that isn’t for the neutral at heart.

 

Fashion for Less March Winners

Fashion for Less:

Casual, chic and sexy!  Man says, “Where did my jeans go?” Woman says, “I have no idea…wink!”  We rock them better anyway.  This is a great combo for a casual Friday at the office or a fun and simple night out with the gals.  It’s easy, flirty, and edgy; it gives a killer vibe to any party.  For the tomboy in us girls, this is the perfect choice to go with.  A pop of color in the blazer or accessories will make this outfit more of a stand out gem.  The subtle pink blazer and light colored denim are perfect for springtime festivities.

 

Suited for Business March Winners

Suited For Business

Hello classy lady!  She’s looking good in this fabulous suit.  It’s polished, clean, simple yet sophisticated and demands respect.  This is the “I’m in charge” look for the working woman.  Having a suit is a wardrobe essential, a must have and Bebe hit the nail on the head in this Navy ensemble.  Paired with a cute striped button down and sassy bright colored scarf, the combo is strikingly feminine with a pinch of masculinity.  This can be worn in any season and at any event or occasion.  Whatever suits your fancy!
