Shoes: Report, Ross

Purse:    Eddie Borgo for Target Wristlet Thunder, The Goodwill

So I tried to find a sweater similar to mine for less than 20.00 but I couldn’t. I did find one under 30.00. If you guys would like a DIY/how to on the sweater, just let me know.  As you guys can see, I’m loving the faux fur vest! It’s just so versatile! I’m thinking of doing a look book/ how to style with just this faux fur vest alone. My purse was actually just a clutch but I needed a mini cross body bag that was a little more flatter than my mini Betsy Johnson bag. I borrowed the strap from that bag and added it to my clutch. I received so many compliments on my “bag”.

Hey guys! How is everyone today? Well I wanted to stop by with a look book/ style inspiration part 1. I wanted to start with my style.

I would describe my style as anything comfortable. I love to take stylish pieces and build around them. I own a fair amount of clothes. How I shop is by two methods. My first method is buying key pieces. These are the pieces that I am willing to splurge on if I have to. If I can get it for the low- low like the coco, then I’m all over it! ( sorry I had to throw that in there.lolx)

My second method is that I buy what I like that’s on trend. I normally find these anywhere and I don’t spend a lot on them. I try to keep the price point for these pieces under 20 dollars.

Converse have been a go to shoe for a while. Despite the fact that they are narrow and have to be purchased in a size up, they make any outfit scream “I’m a bad ass”.

Miley proves that with her polka dot maxi skirt, oversized black sweater and black and white Converse.

Erica and Daphny wanted something cute and comfortable to shoot in. They decided to pair sweaters and jeans for their Converse OOTD!

I will return with a look for less on each outfit!! I want to know how do you pair your Converse?

I’m so happy to say that one of my favorite colors is a fall must have! If you haven’t noticed by the title, the color I’m referring to is grey. It’s something about this color that makes me happy and feel a sense of comfort.

On Instagram, I debuted a mini look book/ ootd board on how I styled a grey piece, my Bongo joggers from Kmart.

Well I decided to feature another Kmart find near and dear to my heart, my acid wash look circle skirt from Bongo.
Here’s how I would style this piece for under 100.00!

1. Wool Hat,SoleSociety: 39.99
2. Plaid Shirt,H and M

3. Printed Sweatshirt, Hand M: 9.95

,Julep Maven
:14.00 11.20 for members JOIN NOW
5. Booties,10 Dollar Mall: 9.99

I would wear this as one of my casual outings look. So for me this would be a shopping/girls date outfit.
