10 Questions for a Thriftanista - Cessily

Today I'm introducing a new series for the blog that will feature the thrift stories of fashionable thrifters aka Thriftanistas and also some of the best thrift stores around town. My first Thriftanista is the good homie and Violet's favorite auntie, Cessily.

She is a vintage queen! I've seen many pieces from her wonderfully curated personal closet and can attest that she is a true Thriftanista.

I love my hot pink, black & green pumps. They're so cute and one of my greatest finds.

9. Do you have any thrift tips you'd like to share? 
When possible, thrift with a friend who wears a different size, that way more territory is covered AND there's that extra eye and voice of reason, that you sometimes need :-)

I JUST started a personal style blog that's dedicated to my vintage finds.
Please visit my website www.vintage-nut.com and I'm also on FacebookTwitter, Pinterest, and G+.

Love the dresses! The few time I've thrifted, I have headed to dresses first too.

I love that black shirt dress she's wearing! I love thrifting but since I was plus sized I never found things. It's a lot easier to find things to wear! I still can't find shoes for my big feet lol.

That a fun aisle. We will thrift together again!

The struggle. I have the most common shoe size I think. I can usually find a size 8. The smallest sizes always seem to be in better condition though. :)

She sure is and there's no way I would miss Monday Mingle!
