Thrifting Virgin

Good Sunday to you!! A couple of months ago, I tried my hand at thrifting.  I always watch YouTube videos of people that find the cutest things.  But, I've never done it myself.  Mainly because I don't like digging for things.  I want things to be all laid out in front of me and all I have to do is just grab it and go.  But, a couple of months ago, I tried my hand at it for the first time.  I, along with my Ma and sister, went to a local thrift shop just to see what they had.  And I spotted this cute little green number on the mannequin in their front window.  It really caught my eye because it was my favorite shade of green. And I've wanted something that color for a long time now.  So, I made the joke that if it were $8, it was coming home with me.  So, once we got inside, I asked the salesperson at the counter how much the dress was.  And low and behold she told me it was $7.99!! I snatched it right off the mannequin and gave that dress a new home.  

Now, don't get me wrong, that was a definite freak of nature.  One, because I didn't have to "hunt" for it.  And two, it was in my price range.  So, long story short, I still feel the same way about thrifting. But, I can say I'm no longer a thrifting virgin.  Will I do it again? Maybe...but it will definitely have to be in the right place and the right price.  So, here's how I styled this little gem. Let me know what you think and where are some of the places you find some great thrift pieces.  Until next time!

Guess Who's Back!!

Hello Everyone!!

First, let me just apologize for not posting in such a LONG time.  A lot has happened since I last posted almost 3 years ago.  I've relocated, changed jobs, suffered some losses and gains.  But, all of this has made me a stronger person in the long run.  With all of that going on, I really didn't have much to post about.  At times, I really didn't want to go on with life, much less post about what I'm wearing.  I didn't want to put others through something if I couldn't put my all into it.  I would definitely be doing you all a disservice.  And myself as well.  So, please accept my humble, heart-felt apology.  

Second, since this is mid-2016, I am definitely going to do better with posting to my blog.  I want to take Dial S for Style to another level.  And if I want to be taken seriously, I have to put up or shut up.  So, take this post as a new beginning and you can look forward to more posts in the near future.

Third, I've got so much to share with you all!! Plans for what I want to do with this blog, to what I want to do career wise.  But, I want to get some more things set in stone first before I begin revealing anything.  With that being said, my lips are sealed for right now.  

Fourth, thank you all for your patience as I've gone through and continue to go through my transitions of life.  If you continue to ride this roller coaster with me, I will do my best to not let you down.  

So, let you all know I am still among the living (lol) here's a recent photo of myself.  Well, actually, this is one of my favorite pics and I just wanna show off. #dontjudgeme #youdoittoo
