Pink Tulip Club

This past weekend I attended the grand reopening of Pink Tulip Club in their newly renovated Old Montgomery location. I love boutique shopping.  It’s the perfect place to find items that you can’t find anywhere else and get personalized service. I got just that during my visit. I found this cute off the shoulder ombre maxi dress.  I can totally see this as the perfect piece for spring and summer. I can definitely see myself wearing this dress to an outdoor wedding or out for an al fresco evening cocktail. Continue reading Pink Tulip Club

Sparkle on New Year’s Eve with Finery Boutique

Who doesn’t want to sparkle for a big event? A dressy occasion often times sneaks up on you and you’re left scrambling for a dress. Even after you find the perfect dress it then sits in your closet waiting for a new special occasion to come out and play. Finery Boutique in OTR is answering your dress up prayers by offering evening dress rental service.

Along with all of the ladies from Thread Cincinnati, I got a sneak peak of all of the beautiful dresses that are available to rent. If you fall in love with a dress, don’t worry you can purchase the dress. Afraid of commitment? Bring the dress back and rent a new dress for your next occasion.

Not only did Finery Boutique have a beautiful and fashion forward selection of dresses, they also have a selection of accessories to choose from to make it easy for you get all dolled up. I personally loved this winter white a-line dress with laser cut details. The fit and the fabric of the dress was amazing!

Fall Style with Cincinnati Premium Outlets

Who doesn’t love a day at the outlet mall? Knowing that you are bound to get an incredible deal on designer clothes is enough to make any woman overjoyed. When Cincinnati Premium Outlets invited the ladies of Thread and I out for an exclusive blogger event, I was thrilled.

Before You  Shop

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when outlet shopping because you have so many options. Before I go shopping at an outlet mall to update my seasonal wardrobe I put away all of my summer clothes . Then I consider the looks that I desire to recreate and get rid of items that have seen their fair share of wear and tear. I knew that I needed a new pair of black booties and these booties from Nine West are everything.

More Than A Dress

I also knew that I needed dresses that I can wear now and in the colder months that will pair well with boots. You won’t believe where I scored this amazing dress that fits so well! Dress Barn they have updated their line and have greatly improved the options in the plus. I would recommend sizing up in this dress if you are on the busty side or want extra arm room. Do they give noble peace prizes for shopping? Drop your preconceived notions and give Dress Barn a second chance.

Shop With Me | Cincinnati Consignment

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

If a tourist came to Cincinnati, Ohio and asked me what does my city have to offer my answer would be shopping and eating. If you are in the know, Cincinnati is an excellent place to secondhand shop (and eat). With so many local thrift stores and consignment shops, the odds are ever in your favor. One shop that I stop in regularly is Legacies in Hyde Park.

Legacies is a consignment shop that sells furniture, home goods, clothing, and accessories. I love the variety that I find in Legacies the furniture is always in good shape, and the jewelry selection is so unique. It’s the perfect place to shop when you’re looking for pieces that you won’t see anywhere else to give your home those extra personal touches. You can donate and shop at Legacies, and the proceeds benefit the Cancer Support Community.

Here a few of my thrifting rules:

See Past the Moment:

Look at the shape of the furniture before you judge the color or fabric. If you’re buying furniture on a budget and you see a couch with a great shape in a color you don’t like, consider getting a sofa cover or large throw blanket to bring the piece back into context for your space.  If you have money to spend, and you have found a piece that looks similar to a high-end piece that you have had your eye on but you dislike the upholstery buying the piece and having it reupholstered is the perfect option for a custom design.

Art on A Budget

Can’t afford to invest in art, it’s all good, the best place to find interesting pieces on a budget is at the consignment shop. I always manage to find a gem every time I’m in Legacies. When searching for art secondhand look for pieces that have quality framing and interesting details. I loved this framed fan it would look great in a bedroom or a bathroom.

Jewels on Display

I adore costume jewelry, and the best place to find interesting pieces is Legacies. With an extensive selection of jewelry, you will not be disappointed. Looking for a cool broach? Legacies also have an impressive assortment of interesting clip on earrings the endless selection will make it hard to leave a piece behind.

Traditional Pieces Within Reach

When you finally have a great dining room set adding, the finishing touches can make a big difference. A set of china can set you back a pretty penny. I have found beautiful China and traditional tea sets, and coffee services at Legacies for reasonable prices. I find that the entire set is sold at one price. Having the right serving ware makes entertaining a breeze.

Last But Not Least

If you love something don’t make the mistake of not purchasing an item, it will be gone when you come back. Trust me I know from experience.
