A Little Bit Uptown, A Little Bit Rock 'N Roll

When people ask me what my aesthetic is I always say I'm a fashion chameleon. I like to have fun with my clothing, and my style is fluid. Something catches my eye and voilà - I'm rocking a new vibe. This look is very much inspired by my favorite Rolling Stones tee. I picked up this baby a while back at Nordstrom Rack on super clearance for 3 bucks. No joke. Every time I wear it, it brings out the Jagger in me.

I like pretty. I like edgy. But that's as close as you're gonna get me to commit to labeling myself. For 2017 I challenge you to try something new and wear something outside your uniform. Some of my favorite looks were just thrown together as I ran out the door.




I've always been a hi-low mixologist. I love the luxury of a beautiful designer piece but sometimes my most impactful finds have been from random places for less than $20. This skirt is by MakeMeChic on Amazon for just $16.99! I'm wearing a size large - the reviews indicate the waistband is small so you have to size up.

Added a little uptown girl with my new Rosegal camel coat and Jimmy Choo sample sale boots. I've been hunting for a camel coat for the longest time but nothing turned up at sample sales or thrift stores (which is where I get most of my coats). I'm guessing it's because lighter colors usually don't last so it's easier to find a darker coat in good condition at thrift. This coat is also a size large and runs super small as well. I probably needed a XL to wear it comfortably right now. With a lot of these online sites sizing can be wonky, so it's really important to read measurements before ordering. And don't get caught up in sizing on the tag. I actually know people who won't buy things if they think the size is too big. Insanity! As a bargain hunter you really have to be open to find the best deals.

The creeper in this pic totally cracks me up - he comes complete with facemask LOL.




From head to toe:
  • Sunglasses: Rosegal, gifted
  • Lipstick: Red Morello Lipstick, Korres, gifted (RV $32.50 with matching liner) - not wearing liner
  • Coat: Rosegal, gifted. It's sold out so I'm linking it in another color. Here is another similar coat for a little more $
  • Pins: BP, Nordstrom Rack, $3.97 each package x2
  • Tee: Electric Circus, Nordstrom Rack, $3.50 (retail $34)
  • Bag: Marc Jacobs small Gotham bag, $259, Nordstrom Rack (RV $1295)
  • Gloves: Fingerless fur gloes, Ruti Horn, free (I won a giveaway) - Check out her Etsy shop here
  • Skirt: MakeMeChic, Amazon, gifted
  • Boots: Jimmy Choo, sample sale, $250 (RV approx. $1,250)

My sunglasses were also a Rosegal find - I'm so hard on my sunglasses that I refuse to spend more than $30 on even my designer pairs. These are less than $9! Score! I also added two sets of pins to my coat that I found at the Rack for about $8 total. I plan on pinning them to anything and everything this Fashion Week.






You can shop my look here:




Can you believe this is the first time I wore these boots? I got them at the first Choo sample sale (check out a previous sale report here) I attended but they've been sitting in my closet waiting for the perfect coat...






Photos are once again by my 11 year old son. Train 'em young guys!

So happy February everyone! Not much in the way of shopping right now. My only pick for next week is Dannijo. Love their cool-girl jewelry. You can read about past sales here and here. Some sales are better than others so fingers crossed for some gorgeous baubles on the cheap!

  1. I'm very much a fashion chameleon too. I used to wear a lot more different trends, but lately, I've just been wearing very minimalistic clothing. I love the graphic art touches to your sweater and coat!

  3. Lol I only noticed the photo bomber when you pointed it out. LOL! Love that coat and agree, sizing is alllll over the place anyway so it really isn't a good indication of what you are anyway!

  11. I've loved your style since the first day I met you, well, followed you on Instagram! I think that that is a perfect way to describe you, like a chameleon because whatever you put on looks like it was made for you. The shirt and jacket are must haves !

  12. Great you are a fashion chameleon babe ~ This outfit suits you too and I love the fun elements of your camel coat. And I adore that gold pleated skirt from MakeMeChic - it's such a rare find at an affordable price! I think it costs double the price if I were to get it in Singapore.

  16. I love that you're not labelling yourself when it comes to fashion. Neither am I. I can go from high to low and everything in between and can go from tux to street within minutes, depending on what mood I'm in :) That golden skirt is just adorable and I do have to give your 11 (!!!) year old son a shoutout for his photography skills! :)
