I’ve been in bed for the past few days watching sappy love movies and eating really bad snack food, so looking at these pics for this post is now motivating me to get up and wash this mop of mine and get a workout in to avoid gaining any holiday break weight before my trip to Hawaii. I’m also realizing I haven’t shared any post about my vintage finds lately. The cute blue jacket I’m rocking in this post is from the Durham Rescue Mission. This is the spot to find 80’s and 90’s clothing to give you just the right vibe of vintage nostalgia. I’ve had a lot of people ask what thrift and vintage stores I shop so I’m dedicating this post to a list of my past fav and some new shops I’ve been buying from lately. To those who are just tuning in to the CCC blog, I’m an avid vintage and thrift store clothing shopper. A large percentage of my wardrobe is thrifted, consignment and vintage finds from all over. I’ve incorporated this into my personal style over the past few years for the simple fact that I love finding rare pieces you can’t find anywhere else and also because I’m a big supporter of sustainable fashion and making sustainable fashion decisions. With that being said, you’ll often find me rocking a newer piece remixed with vintage pieces I’ve picked on my travels, online or here in the Raleigh-Durham area. One of the main messages that I want to send to my readers is that fashion can be fun, affordable and reusable. With that being said, I’ve listed some of my fav vintage shops from online and in the local area. Hope you’re able to stop by and support these businesses and remix your wardrobe a little.
Enjoy! 😊 😉 😊 😉
