FRINGE VEST + BELL BOTTOMS = THAT’S SO 70’S

Today I am bringing back the 70’s. The seventies have been all the rave this season and I must say I am happy it is because I L-O-V-E bellbottoms. I am bell swinging, fringe rocking and curl waving myself around town with this fabulous look. This entire look was purchased at my local Goodwill for $28 and I must say, there is nothing cheap-looking about my outfit.

Thrifted Details:

  • Top: $3.00
  • Jeans: $2.50
  • Shoes: $20.00
  • Vest: $2.00
  • Total: $27.50

Summer’s Sunshine

Nothing compares to the steamy rush of humidity sucking the life out of your skin, hair and lungs as soon as you step outside in Miami. If you’re not a native you hate it. If you are a native you probably are use to it, love it or the latter. In my case, I love it. Sure, I look like medusa within two minutes of being outside but I’ll take humidity and heat before shoveling snow any day. This summer has been so steamy, I have opted for dresses, skirts and shorts all summer long. The thought of having sweat drip down my legs and into my jeans is just uncomfortable and down right disgusting.

Today’s look is something sweet and simple to get you through this Friday. This skirt is from the Jason Wu collabortaion with Target. I did not buy this item when the collaboration came out; rather, I got very lucky at the thrift store. I happen to have stumbled across this gorgeous piece (w/ tags) at my local Goodwill.

So cheers to a simple outfit with a retro twist & happy weekend!

Happy Fashion,

Maxi Skirt + Faux-leather Crop Top

Since school started I have been quite busy. Currently I am playing catch up as I was away this weekend and was unable to blog or do any homework.I know, so early in the semester and I have already fallen behind, ;( . However, lets move it on to better news.

The Outfit:

I bought this gorgeous skirt at goodwill a few months and I just could not believe how gorgeous this piece was. This is totally a vintage and/or “retro” piece and that is why I fell in love with it. I immediately knew I wanted to wear a crop top with it and when I bumped into this amazing crop top at Urban Outfitters, I knew I had to have it. I love the edginess the top gave the skirt but the skirt still keeps the outfit girly. I added these simply black ankle strap sandals and my black bag to complete my look. Hope you all like.

Outfit Total: $23.50

  • Skirt: $3.00
  • Top: $10.00
  • Shoes: $8.00
  • Purse: $2.50

Happy Fashion.

Faux-Leather & Vintage Peplum

Hope everyone is having an awesome Friday night!

Today I took it back to the 80’s! The top is a total vintage ( 80’s) blouse I scored at the thrift store a few months back. Actually, my sister got this for my birthday back in April! I loved this top but that the time, I didn’t fit right. It was too tight. Thankfully, I have trimmed down some more and now it actually fits lovely. I thought I would get it altered but I am not, I actually love the way it looks. I wanted to keep things neutral so I wore these with my faux-leather jeans ( it was a bit cold this morning) and my oh-so fabulous silver shoes. I must mention that these are also part of my x-mas present….

Side note –  I don’t do well with wrapped gifts. I actually tell my boyfriend what I want and he buys it. There is no point of having them wrapped it I know what I am getting. Therefore, I wear all of my x-mas presents way before x-mas 🙂

I wanted to keep the outfit edgy so I wore this metal clutch to keep the metallic’s going. The clutch was actually purchased in New Orleans – which explains why its so cool.

Total cost of Outfit: $84.00

  • Top: $9.00
  • Jeans: $25.00
  • Clutch: $30.00
  • Shoes: $20.00

Happy Fashion.

Hello Loves!

Today’s look is very vintage-y. I love the retro feel this outfit has; it’s very 50’s with a modern twist. The color on the skirt is so vibrant and I just love the gorgeous velvet bow that the skirt comes with. It’s the minor unexpected details of things that I often find myself loving more. Since I wanted the skirt to be the “it” piece of this outfit I opted for a navy long sleeve shirt and I fell in love with the peter pan collar of the shirt. The collar has a lovely lace detail that I simply forgot to take pictures of. I accessorized with a cute floral ring, my black clutch and sunglasses ( which I am currently obsessed with).

Total cost of outfit: $55.50

  • Shirt: $25.00 ( on sale )
  • Skirt: $3.00
  • Shoes: $25.00
  • clutch: $2.50
