When I wake up in the morning, I tend NOT to have an insatiable taste for toast, eggs or even honey smoked ham, I always have a hunger that only one thing can actually fulfill, fashion. I usually jump out of bed, eagerly dashing to my little piece of heaven on earth, what’s that? My closet!
Most of my looks are usually made moments before I’m suppose to walk out of apartment, which usually makes me a tad bit late for whatever appointments, meetings, classes or schedule I previously had. This look was one I adore. I love the colors of green and peach against each other. The caramel colored blazer was a really nice touch added to the outfit.
The peach colored button-up: $2.00 (thrift store)
Blazer: $5.00 (thrift store)
Black penny loafers: $3.00 (Thrift store)
My advice to everyone going out is to mix colors that are different. Have fun with it because if you have fun with your style it shows! Plus, who doesn’t like to be noticed when going out with friends or even solo. What do you think about this outfit?
She’s wearing that? Oh my, he’s wearing those? We’ve all been there. Fashion trends in college have more OMG moments than Madonna’s controversial career. How many times have you walked on campus and seen students strutting to class in…pajamas? Yes, I said it. I honestly wonder where are the fashion police when you need them.
You are the clothes you wear, which is why the year 2013 holds infinite possibilities for your wardrobe, but first you have to contend with that big fat pile of bad style choices taking up your closet and everyday wardrobe. There is no reason that you shouldn’t dress up everyday because glamour isn’t only reserved for the rich and famous and you never know who you’ll run into. David Beckham or Rihanna at the grocery store? Hey, stranger things have happened.
But if none of these reasons were enough for you then remember, nothing beats the rush you feel when you look in the mirror and LOVE what you see and I definitely loved my outfit (above photo). I rocked this turquoise blazer, with a peach over-sized vest, dark purple button-up with a striped purple tie. I paired these with some loose fitted baby blue pants.
All of these items were found in the magical land of the thrift store. Can you say fashion on a dime!
Whether you‘re at work or at play, your clothing choices send a message about you–are you sending the one you want?
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.
