TV Style Icon: Whitley Gilbert!

I've always been a HUGE fan of A Different World. Probably the #1 fan. I've been looking at it since in premiered (5th grade?) when I was in grade school & I'm still watching it on some weekday nights, lol. I wish all of the episodes were on dvd so I could just watch it whenever I wanted. A Different World was the reason I chose to go to an HBCU (historically black colleges and universities). ;-) Their experiences & friendships all inspired me to go to an HBCU. It's no secret that my favorite character was Whitley!

Let's get to the fashion now. Another thing that also inspired me was Whitley's sophisticated style! She had the best style on the show. The woman wore business suits to class ya'll. While preparing for this posts, I was scouring the web trying to find photos of her outfits. Almost nada. : \ I don't understand why there aren't more photos online of the outfits she wore. Sometimes I would be looking at the show & would say, "Whitley is doing it in that outfit!" If they were giving out a Best Dressed award, she would've won. :-)

The cast! In the beginning that is...
Whitley & Dwayne. :D I loved their relationship.
Jasmine Guy & Debbie Allen
Jasmine Guy & her father.
lol, I remember this episode!

Since I couldn't find many of her outfits, I went on YouTube. There I found some of my favorite outfits she wore...

Oh and yesterday was my 1 year blogiversary!!! :D Thank you to all who read The Ex-Thrift Store Snob! I have a special surprise for you. ;-)

Battle: LA on a Saturday Night


The earrings I won over at Clarabelle! A big thank you to Beso and the sweet letter they sent me. :-)


This past Saturday (went thrift store shopping & came up empty!) the hubs and I went out with one of his co-workers & his wife. This is what I wore. We checked out the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. It's a place where you can eat dinner while you watch the movie. It was a nice change from just going to see a movie. We saw Battle L.A. I actually begin to feel sick as we were watching the movie. I just thought it was the baby, but the hubs thinks it could've been motion sickness. The movie provided a lot of action scenes so he could be right. All I know is that I felt like throwing up mid way through the movie. Not a good feeling. : \ Aside from all of that we had a good time and my bbq pulled pork sandwich was good! Not as good as the ones in Memphis though. ;-) Battle: LA was a great movie. It reminded me a lot of Independence Day.

So here's the cheap breakdown of the outfit:

Shirt- I love this shirt!!! So free and flowy. From an earlier post: $2.99, 579
Skirt- from here F21, $11
Necklace- Bijoux Terner, $10
Sandals- These are like the only shoes I've been wearing! Ya'll have seen them SEVERAL times on here! lol I really need to buy some more sandals....They were $10 at Charlotte Russe

Another cheap outfit!- K.D.

Get Excited! Bloggers/Blog Readers Meet & Greet!

Have I ever told you guys how much I HATE the phrase "get excited"?? Well, I do. It's just so annoying to me. I just wanted to be funny and include it in the post title, lol. Anyway...Come & hang out with Reiko & I at the Yard House on March 26th! You guys already know that I'm new to the city so I'm definitely trying to meet some people. Hope to see you there!

Feel free to repost, tweet, or facebook the flier! And check out the Yard House
menu here. :-)- K.D.

Editing On the Blog

Hey people,

I'm up late doing a little editing on the ETSS. I noticed from some of my posts over the last few months that there has been some horrible blurriness in the photos so I basically reposted the posts with clearer photos. I don't know how the blurriness happened....when I initially uploaded the pics I didn't notice it at all. As I've been looking at the site, the photos looked horrible. : \ I apologize in advance if you're subscribing & you get the posts twice. At least you'll get to see clearer pics now. I'm currently looking for somewhere else online that I can host my photos. I'm noticing too many probs with Tinypic.....just an update. Since I'm up, I'm off to check out some blogs! Night ya'll- K.D.

Dinner at Yard House

We went out to the Yard House restaurant last night. One of the hubs co-workers is moving away & we wanted to hang out with them before they left. I couldn't wait to get there & eat! lol Here's the outfit I wore.


The J.Crew dress has been featured here and here. It was free so you no money out of my pocket. I paired it with my thrifted Liz Claiborne belt. The vest is one of 3. I got 3 of them for $15 at Walmart in '06. I'm so glad my sis talked me into getting all of the colors, lol. I bought those sandals for around $10 in D.C. in '07. The F21 bangle is making another debut on the's been on here several times.

I hope everyone has a great night! I'm currently starving as to feed the Munchkin.
