I’m linking up to my first ever The Pleated Poppy What I Wore Wednesday!

Lately, I’ve been obsessed over all things vintage.  I mean, I totally think it’s making a comeback right now and I’m sure it will continue to in the future.  Note to self: save all clothes for future generations.  My obsession pretty much started when I won this Paisley Belted Kakalina Rose Vintage dress from Cakies a few weeks ago.  I seriously love everything about this dress, the color, print, belt, sleeves, length, and fit.  But of course, after I got the dress I needed the perfect shoe to go along with it.  I searched high and low, far and wide for the perfect oxford booties, and lo and behold, I found them in a mall in Ohio when I was on a business trip.  Oh how I love these shoes, they go well with brown and black tones, what could beat that?  Nothing, I tell ya.

So since I wore this outfit, I’ve been a thrifting/vintage wanna-be maven.  My husband and I spent a few weekends thrift store hopping and let me tell you, it’s oodles of fun.  I love digging through people’s junk to find treasures for myself at an awesomely low price.  Not gonna lie, sometimes you search for hours and only come out with a turquoise mason jar, but that jar is worth it.  And I picked up a few things that I’ll be using as props for the Ladies Night booth that I’m doing NEXT WEEK, ahhhh, I only have one week left to prepare for it!

If you are looking for some vintage clothing/accessories/shoes, Kakalina Rose Vintage is offering 30% off her shop with code SANDYALAMODE!!
