I am Ayana Pitterson.  I am the Thrifting Diva –  a personal stylist, thrift expert and a fashion bloggerbased in Annapolis, MD.

I was born on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad, but grew up in New York City- the fashion capital of the world.   As a fashion maven I am obsessed with finding stylish items, but always at amazingly low prices.  I’m also a mom of two, wife and career woman, who absolutely knows that hectic schedules and the demands of life can get in the way of powerful personal style.

The Thrifting Diva blog is a diary of my fashion life, photographed and written to inspire and to empower women to be their best selves with a confident style.  I want to help you look and feel better by teaching you how to find your unique personal style, update your closet, and choose new clothes based on your body type on a reasonable budget.  Every week, I show women all over the world how to look great for much less than expected.  I believe women develop their true style and confidence when they learn to convey who they are and what they do through what they wear. Even more than my passion for fashion, is my need to inspire women to realizing the amazing transformation that happens on the inside when women see themselves differently on the outside.

However, let’s be real.  Drop-dead gorgeous fashion isn’t always affordable.  But, you too can be a Thrifting Diva, dressing flawlessly without hurting the purse strings.  Follow me as I unearthed sartorial treasures and fabulous fashion finds in consignment shops, thrift stores, yard sales, estate auctions, fashion swaps and vintage boutiques.  You can definitely dress stylish, pay less, feel empowered and look amazing.  Come on the Thrifting Diva journey and discover all that is possible. Whether it be style inspiration, thrift advice, or need a personal stylist, this is your destination.
