Broke & Fabulous

Broke & Fabulous…

Do you remember the saying “In order to be the part, you have to look the part?” But, in order to dress the part, isn’t it expensive? Nope! Ladies, I bet you can find a classy peplum skirt with a pencil skirt and a snazzy pair of heels for less than fifteen bucks. And as for you gentlemen, you can get a nice pair of pants, a shirt, and a chic blazer for dirt cheap. Yes people, you can put together a sharp ensemble without breaking the bank.

I am a fashion connoisseur, who takes the vintage style of yesterday and adds a modern spin to create a posh look. Yes, I must admit my appetite for fashion is pretty hefty, but nothing soothes my hunger like the tantalizing prices of a sales rack. Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay to splurge on a garment that’s full price—as long as it’s stylish of course. Other than that, I gravitate towards the clearance section. Falling into a trance as the 50-75% off signs lures me in. Going from rack to rack, finding the most stylish clothes, my money fiends to be spent.  As the checker rings me up, my eyes begin to flicker with excitement from the prices of my purchases, leaving nothing but pure elation coursing through my veins and my wallet.

I am a broke 20 year old fashionista, studying Kinesiology and Sports Studies and minoring in Advertising. Follow me and Poor Boy as we take you on an adventure of life’s ups and downs one outfit at a time.

Yours Truly,

Broke & Fabuluous

Rich Colors & Blocking

love

Do you ever think about what the color of your tie, pants or blouse is really saying?!! in some crazy, subtle way, colors can speak volumes about a person before they ever open their mouths.

This perhaps may be one of the very reasons why color blocking is one of this spring’s hottest fashion trends, and I’m ready to see color galore when the dreary snow and icy winds melt away.

Like for instance, red can be the color of dominance, power and attention. Blue is the color of beauty, pink is the color of compassion and femininity and gold is the color of prestige. Take a look at my outfit above.

While I was getting dressed to go out for dinner with a few close friends at this nice little secluded restaurant we found exploring the town , I decided to spice it up with a pair of strawberry red pants from Forever 21, a blue and white striped belt, a blue collared shirt, paired with a plaid blue shirt worn around my shoulders, and a pair of classic brown canvas boat shoes, which were all purchased from the clothing store Rue 21. 

The rich vibrant shades of color definitely gave me a bit more confidence when I stepped out on the town and now I challenge you to do the same. Put your best foot forward in a outfit that would be a color blockers dream and post it below!
