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”.

OOTD: Styling a Granny Piece

What She Wore/ OOTD

Hey guys! Guess who’s back? First let me start off by apologizing for my LONG hiatus. I had a lot going on in my life. But enough with the excuses, let me jump right into the post. 

So I love thrifting! I’ve purchased so many different items during the summer that I can’t wait to show you guys through different post. The item that I am featuring is a Jersey Sleep Shirt orginally from Sears. The brand is Tropical Escape. I paid .50 for it from my local Salvation Army.

  
So I decided to style it with my vintage Denim Lee Jacket, my boyfriend’s Aztec five panel hat from Forever 21 and my Aztec print slip on’s from Rugged Warehouse by the brand Twisted. 

I chose this shirt because of the size, fit and style. I feel like the fact that it resembles a baseball jersey. I can’t wait to use this in my next segment. 

   
   
Deets: 

Jersey Sleep Shirt: Tropical Escape, Salvation Army, .50cents

Shoes: Twisted, Rugged Warehouse, 2.99

Denim Jacket: Lee, Goodwill, 1.00

Hat: Forever 21, boyfriend’s 
So guys let me know if you want me to recreate this ootd for you guys through polyvore!!!!

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.
