Thriftster Rehab

Vintage is the new black

Tell ya homegirls!

Mark my words y'all I'm ahead of my time and know what I'm talking about! When it comes to style that's where I get the most creative. My favorite thing is seeing peoples reactions to my outfits. Gaga might do it for the applause, but DANGGINAAA does it for the stares. LOL I hate myself sometimes. 

  I receive these amazing pieces from one of my favorite boutique. (Thriftster Rehab) They have all the dopest one of a kind unique styles. I literally stumbled across their Instagram awhile back and fell in love with all of their products. Check out how I like to style vintage clothing down below!

I wanna show you guys how to style a vintage piece without making it look outdated, but fresh and fly af. The key to making vintage look cool is CONFIDENCE. I know this sounds really lame, but it's 100% true. You have to wear the outfit don't let the outfit wear YOU. 

Now besides confidence I like to add something to the fit that is modern, but very low key. Such as a simple white or black top. The more basic the better, however also think basic with a twist. Look at my black top in the photos with the NY jersey on. See how it has the loop hole detail at the top? Making it stand out from a normal basic top. Even the white tank I am wearing with the colorful key blazer it has a built in twist knot at the bottom. Basic but flavorful, catching my drift?

This outfit above kinda came together randomly. Last minute I threw this old silk scarf that I inherited from my grandmother. Added up with some basic cut off shorts and my vintage Nine West boots to pull the whole fit together. Garnish it off with the 90's inspired frames. Talk about some serious bad boy vibes yeah buddy!

P.S. you can get the same frames here

With this super vibrant blazer screamed less is more. So I kept it simple with some high waisted destoryed mom jeans. F.Y.I. MOM jeans are making/have made a major come back!

Now go to Thriftster Rehab and check out more what they have! Promise they won't disappoint, oh and remember CONFIDENCE is key!!

Curly Hair Routine Update

I've been recently told that I have 'Kid curls', 'bouncy curls', 'spiral curls', and tbh it makes me feel pretty damn good. I get more attention on my hair than I ever have in my entire life since my hair journey started. Taking care of my hair has given me more patience and more self love than I could ever thought.

Before my hair was dry and extremely damaged. From the earlier stages my hair was kinda stringy and had zero bounce. The struggle and a million protective top knots, and lots of miserable 'bad hair days' here I am. With a much stronger and healthier curls pattern. It took a long time coming, but was definitely worth the tears to get to this level of curl. 

I want to go over what I use on daily basis for my hair. Since I've been getting this asked a lot lately. This is will be helpful for you girls are out there like I was and had no clue what the hell to do with your hair. 

Ouidad Nourising Cleansing Oil
This is my favorite shampoo ever I will also sometimes use the Dry Bar 'Blonde Ale' it's a purple shampoo to help tone and brighten my blonde 

Wash my hair 1-2 times a week and I usually mix the two shampoos together.

Conditioner $20
Ouidad Color Preserving Conditioner
I make sure to ring out or even towl dry my hair a little before applying it to my hair 

Oil: $42
Kevin Murphy Young Again
This is moisturizing and also a heat protectant its the first thing I finger comb through my hair fresh out the shower

Spray: $6.99
Dippity Do Girls With Curls, Curl-boost spray
The seconded thing I do after my oil I just spray it throughout my hair

This next step I switch out weekly and do one then the other for some reason I feel like my hair gets used to the same thing so thats why I like to swap them out weekly 

Creme: $20

Cream: $6.99
Deputy Do Girls With Curls, Defining Cream

I apply these two products the same. I start in sections and really go to town and scrunch the hell out of my hair to help enhance the curl. I let air dry for a few minutes then I wrap it up in a tee shirt and let it sit for 45 mins to an hour. Take it down then diffuse dry it with my Curly Co Diffuser

Mask: $44
Curl Recovery Melt Down Extreme Repair Mask
My fave mask to use at least once a week. I apply this to dry hair and rat comb it out leave it overnight. 

Hope this was helpful to anyone out there !
