Holiday Thrift Challenge-Couple’s Edition

The holidays are here and I am honored to partner with Triad Goodwill  to bring to you the Holiday Thrift Challenge-Couple’s Edition. Yes, you can find pretty amazing everyday and social wear at Goodwill. No more ugly sweaters and a race to see who can find the most hideous looks to throw together. Goodwill and I are here to show you that you and your partner can find looks for all your holiday party and social needs. Whether it’s for work or play, Goodwill has you covered.

How The Challenge Works

You and your partner will need to take a trip to one of the 22 Triad Goodwill stores and one outlet store. Click store locations to find your nearest Goodwill.  Between December 4 and December 10, you will need to visit any of the 22 locations to create your couple’s outfits. You and your partner will need to be styled from head to toe in your secondhand outfits. Each couple that participates will need to send me a full length photo of the complete looks and a copy of their receipts for valid entry.  Submission will also grant us your permission to share your looks on OntheEve Style/Triad Goodwill social media pages. If you would like to post to your own social media accounts, please use the hashtag #coupleseditionthriftchallenge17 and tag us!

Each valid entry will be voted on by social media. The prizes are pretty good if I must say so myself.

Fall in Love

So it has been a while I know. I have been quite the micro-blogger lately on Instagram. I didn’t quite know what that was until @blogwithkim shared that concept one day. Anyway, I wanted to take the time to brag on my newest Goodwill find. A cozy, wrap cardigan that is sure to be in heavy rotation this season. When the weather people hinted that cooler weather was coming, I headed right to my happy place, my local Triad Goodwill. When I tell you that they have an abundance of sweaters, jackets and everything you need to stay warm, I am not over exaggerating. This lovely cardigan caught my eye because of the price, color, style and the thickness of it.

I paired this “3.59 BCBSGeneration cardigan with jeans, a tank and some booties. I am a girly, girl so I added a pearl brooch to the shawl neckline just to have some bling.

Plus I think I am slightly addicted to cardigans. For various reasons but I will name just a few:

*They can be worn in every season.

*They protect you for the sub-artic cold of your work air conditioner, that comes on when it’s cold instead of when it is hot.

*They are versatile and universally flattering if worn correctly.

*They are super comfy.

*They keep you looking “put together” (I hate when people say that) But basically gives you a more polished and complete look (like a blazer, but that is for another post).

Find sweaters and cardigans in colors  that enhance your beautiful skin and that will be easy to pair with other things in your closet.  I was going to link some retail cardigans for you all to chase down but then I said nah, I am challenging them to go thrifting. Save some of those coins for travel or to pay back student loans (I have a slew of them, HELP). Many people share with me that it’s hard for them to have a successful thrifting adventure. That is probably because you are trying to focus on the entire store on your first visit. That can be quite overwhelming. So head straight to the sweaters. Most places have them sorted by color and some even by size. Whether for work, casual wear, or date night, I am convinced that you will find something. Every piece will be unique which is what I absolutely love.

Fall is the time in which couples get all cute and cozy and take lubby dubby pics and stuff. Fireplaces start burning and people start confessing their love for one another. I think it is awesome. I love, love. Even when the kind of love that you desire isn’t quite there yet, it still feels amazing to know that you have friends and family who love and adore you. That unconditional love that no matter what you have done, they still love you despite all that. This Fall season, fall in love with yourself. That is the best love that you can have. When you have that kind of love, it is easy for others around you to love you. Even when they don’t you’re OK because you have that self love that can’t be taken away.

Thanks for stopping by. Share your sweater/cardigan thrift find with me on IG. I can’t wait to see what you find.

xo, Eve

Thrifted Vintage Skirt and Booties/Fall Look

 

This week I am all about skirts and dresses. Jeans have been a tad bit restrictive for me lately so I thought about switching it up. Plus the weather has been amazing here lately in NC so why not show a little bit of leg.

 I took a trip to GCF Donation Center & Store in Morrsiville, NC yesterday. I went in for skirts and dresses but could not pass up on the chance to snag some great shoes for the fall as well. These Jessica Simpson booties that you see are my $3.49 treasure find. I finally made it over to the skirts and this vintage skirt caught my eye priced at $3.29!

What else is better than a thrifted vintage skirt and booties paired with a floral blouse and denim jacket? I felt like this outfit was my Fall outfit goals all in one smash! The colors and the way the pieces compliment each other are quite impressive if I do say so myself. Thrifted blouse $2.29

So let’s head into Fall with a fresh and different outlook on what our closet goals will look like this season. Go through your wardrobe and see what you have and let’s find a way to incorporate it into a new look. If not let’s get to thrifting. There are just too many treasures awaiting you that will not cost you retail prices.

As always, thanks for stopping by!!!!

xo, Eve

Women In Power Brunch 2017

CEO, Founder Women In Power, Inc Trina Boyd Photo creds: Ohh Snaps! Premiere Photography (Charlotte, NC)

On September 16, 2017, I had the pleasure of traveling to Charlotte, NC to attend the 2nd Annual Women in Power Brunch, hosted by Trina Boyd. The brunch location, Solis Southline was nothing less than beautiful and accommodating. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with the many vendors, entrepreneurs, speakers, and guests in attendance.

My biggest takeaway from the event was the powerful words from Kiaera Douglas, CEO and Founder of EmpowHer Me Enterprises. The phrase, “being in the right place at the right time”  is all that I could think of while she speaking encouraging words into the lives of so many beautiful women.

She spoke on 4 Ways to Not Allow Your Fire to Die.

  1. Fuel-Speak life into your vision!
  2. Initiate-Get to work. Go get your people!
  3. Recharge-Too much of anything is unhealthy! Step back and take time to recharge!
  4. Exhaust-Tap into your resources!

I don’t know about any other boss women but that spoke to my soul. Women in Power Inc. is a non-profit organization that helps women strive in their business goals and aspirations! It is very evident that they stand by their mission statement as women flooded the networking event.

Sharing some of the shots I captured during the event. It was impossible to capture all of the great moments but I am sure these will tell the story.
