Yesterday was thrift store excursion day!

First stop! AZ Thrift Store on Veterans Memorial Highway in Historic Mableton, GA, which is about a 25 minute drive from West Midtown Atlanta. 
Jennifer, who works at AZ is the inspiration behind my post today! 
She loves fashion & ALWAYS looks great! {Jennifer, shown above!}

She and I started talking about 80s & 90s fashions & the resurgence of this particular style right now. 
Bright colors, mesh, color-blocking, mixed textures, all derivatives of the 80s & 90s! 
So I decided to look for shoes from that time frame! Guess what?!  I hit a gold mine! Which was like, totally awesome!

Okay, I couldn't help myself! Moving right along! 
See below!

J Renee multi-colored Snakeskin peep toe!

Bright Blue Candies peep toe!

These Palter Debs are actually from the 60s & alligator!
However, fabulous, I had to show you!

I used to be totally against white pumps, 
but if these Proxy shoes were my size, they would be mine!!
Love the gathering at the toe!

Color-blocked patent sling backs are by Style & Co., 
not vintage, but CUTE & inexpensive!

Yes, a wing-tip spectator oxford! 
Oxfords are so hot right now!
Navy & White leather by Connie

A cobalt blue, textured & scalloped pump with cut outs!

All of shoes shown above are under $16 each!
