Vintage Visit | Vintage & Charmed Classic Clothing

Vintage Silk + Lace Crop Top

Last week, I had the pleasure of stopping by Vintage & Charmed Classic Clothing for our weekly Vintage Visit series. Upon arrival, I loved the chic space located in the Anacostia Arts Center.  Native Washingtonian and owner Lynette Voss, has admired vintage fashion since an early age. Lynette takes great pleasure searching and finding all of the one-of-a-kind fashions that reside in her boutique. A variety of signature pieces and sizes, great customer service {ask for Tasha}, layaway options, metro accessible, and moderate pricing.  A true hidden gem in Ward 8!

Weekend Frugal Find | Shoe Woo

Our weekend frugal find is compliments of one of my favorite Goodwill retail stores located in Owings Mills, Maryland.  These chic Jimmy Choo Purple Satin Slingback Sandals will perfectly compliment a little black dress.  A great find for a fashion-obsessed Style Maven eager to build her wardrobe with designer finds for a fraction of the price.  

Original Retail Price: US $550 |  Frugal Find Price:  $75

NYFW | Look Of The Day

I adore how this Fashionista thew caution to the wind and wore white after Labor Day.  We’ve stalked multiple fashion blogs that provided street style photos from NYFW and from what we gather, the whole no wearing white after Labor Day rule is pretty much a thing of the past.

 What do you think of today’s look of the day?  Would you consider wearing white after Labor Day?

Fab Finds ● Weekend Flea

Here are a  few vintage finds that caught my eye over the Labor Day weekend at my local flea market.  My Style Maven shopping tote was the perfect companion and served its purpose.  Overall, I snagged a pair of tribal inspired clip-on earrings, two stylish ink stamps, vintage accessories, a very unique clutch, and a straw fedora for a future beach excursion.   I also picked up a few fab finds  for clients and friends.

P.S.  I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of the featured vintage typewriter, which dated back to the 1940’s.
