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.

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!
