CUTE AS A BOW

This has got to be the perfect summer top. It’s a wrap around top that when around around my waist, it creates the cutest bow on the back. It’s also cotton, gingham, and it reminds me of romantic picnics. I bought this top at a thrift store (Goodwill) a fews months back and it was only $3.00. Talk about money well spent.

Happy Fashion,

#OOTD – Happy Friday

Gingham has been all the rave this season and I’ve been rocking it since last season! Yes, I considered myself the fortune teller of fashion but I knew gingham was coming back. I love these pants so much because they are super comfortable and of course flattering. I purchased these at goodwill last fall, but if you see below, I was able to find a similar style.I love how the cut and the print hides my small pouch ( that I am crunching, sit upping and running to get rid of!). Today though, I decided to rock these pants with this lovely crop top I bought at Forever 21 a few weeks ago. This is definitely a  happy hour look you can rock on a nice spring evening.

Till next time!

Happy Fashion,

Karla

Androgynous – Gingham + Polka-dots

Today, I borrowed a few tips from the boys. I love menswear – the suits, the jackets, the blazers, the pants, the shoes…I can go on and on. The top really inspired this look because the bow really makes it seems as if I were wearing a tie as opposed to a knot made on the shirt. Once I put the top on and made the bow, I knew that I was going to be wearing my high-waisted gingham pants. It is the perfect piece to wear with this gorgeous top. This is a nice subtle yet chic way of borrowing pieces from the boys without looking too masculine. I kept the outfit simple by wearing black heels, a black clutch & a black coat ( it’s been chilly). In order to give it that extra “POW” I side swept my curls and wore a bold red lip.

I love how this outfit came out nicely because it reminds me of the 50’s – back when women wore high-waisted pants, gorgeous hair and red lips. The pants look extremely slimming and the top is just the perfect piece that really makes this outfit standout. I recently purchased this top from Loft by Ann Taylor ( outlet ) as they were having a huge sale. The pants are also from Ann Taylor but these were purchased at goodwill and I have a feeling these probably date back a few years.

Outfit total: $50.00 (<- A complete coincidence lol)

The Gingham Pants

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

I am a complete fan of high waisted pants, especially if they are gingham ( or plaid). I bought these Goodwill the other day and I must be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about buying these pants. The reason, well because they do need to be tailored. They fit just a bit baggy towards the bottom so I was a bit on the fence because of the cost. However, after much debate and realizing they were 50% off that day, I took a plunge and bought them. I still wore them without having them tailored because I couldn’t resist myself, but honestly I will be taking these to the tailor. I am pretty sure it will cost me about $5 – $10.00 but hey, that’s cheap.  This whole outfit was thrifted except the shoes – those are part of my x-mas present.

I wore pink for two reasons: One, when I tried them on I was wearing a hot pink workout shirt and I loved the contrast that the neon color gave the white and black print. Two: I loved the way it looked with my snake print heels! I kept it pretty simple from then on out. I added nice pink lip and the gorgeous black bag. Hope you guys like!

Total Cost Of Outfit: $33.50

  • Top: $3.00
  • Pants: $3.00
  • Shoes: $25.00 ( On Sale)
  • Clutch: $2.50

Happy Fashion.
