Vintage

Something Navy

There’s just something about Fall that makes you want to bring out the neutrals. Too bad Fall didn’t seem to last long this year. Fall felt like it really came and went because before you knew it, it’s now full on Winter out there. Here I’m wearing a navy long sleeved top tucked inside some vintage trousers. I finished the look with some open toe lace up booties.

11 Unique Ways To Wear Overalls

 photo

 

If I had to describe the overalls, it would definitely be a ‘Man Repeller‘ item. You know those items us ladies wear that are super unappealing to the opposite sex – well the overalls are one of them. The overalls were definitely a childhood favourite of mines – I almost wish I kept a pair. They’re great for those days off, where you want to look like you didn’t try, yet still look super stylish. But let’s face it, overalls is an intimidating item to style and pull off. My tip is to treat them as if they’re jeans because you can pretty much pair them with just about any top. You also don’t need to spend a lot of money on this item, unless of course you’re in it to support your favourite brand. Trends like this that keeps returning you can easily pick up a pair at your local vintage spot. For your style reference, see my picks on some of the most stylish ways to wear your overalls.

Five N’ Dime – A Collective Pop Up Shop

dsc_0673final11

With summer surely on its way, what better way to kick start the warmer season than a little thrift shopping. Over the years thrift shopping has become quite popular and is often confused with vintage shopping. To clear the air a little, thrift shopping is not the same as vintage shopping. In fact thrifting is buying something for less than its original value. Vintage is a piece of clothing or an object bearing a time stamp of 20 years or that illustrates a particular era in history.

With that said, you can consider Five N’ Dime a shopping experiencing where you’re thrift shopping, but also buying vintage at the same time. Expect this event to bring out all the vintage lovers, followers and admirers. Not to mention, how affordable the prices are.

Founders Danielle Evans and Tinesha Richards specialize in new school vintage; modern trendy pieces with a mix of unique one of a kind vintage items. With a year and a half of pop-up shop successes under their belts, their aim is to transform the definition of thrift. They want to give new meaning to your general understanding of what it means to “thrift shop” by providing shoppers with the opportunity to browse through items selected carefully from some of their favorite places to shop such as New York and Toronto. More importantly, Five N’ Dime encourages and promotes affordability so all items are priced reasonably and nothing is over $25. Yes, you heard right, nothing is priced over $25.

“As students we understand that it is difficult to keep up with the latest trends when you have text books to buy, tuition to pay for, and all the other expenses that comes along with being a student. Because of this, everything sold at Five N’ Dime is $25 and under”, says the ladies.

In addition to offering trendy clothing and accessories at a discount, the ladies are also concerned with charitable matters. “We are also strong advocates for helping out our community; and therefore each year we find new ways to give back. This year we will be donating 20% of all earnings to the Urban Arts Toronto, Girls Group”.

Nothing like a shopping experience that also gives back. I’m all for it!
