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?

Lulu Files of Style: 50 Shades of Grey!

Files of Style, What She Wore/ OOTD

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
: 17.95
3. Printed Sweatshirt, Hand M: 9.95
4. Tia nail polish
,Julep Maven
:14.00 11.20 for members JOIN NOW
5. Booties,10 Dollar Mall: 9.99
6. Acid wash look skirt ,River Island:20.00

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

Side Note: the skirt I purchased is no longer available at KMart so I included this still a affordable stylish River Island find instead!

Blazers and Baby Showers

The Deets:
Head wrap: local Beauty Supply Store Scarf. ( I think it was a 1.00 I bought it in 2009)
Blazer: Local Thrift Store: .50 Talbot’s kid brand
Shirt: Goodwill: .50 Not sure of the brand ( I cut the lace collar off. People thought that I was lying when I told them it was a “grandma shirt”)
Shorts: Goodys : 9.99 Not sure of the brand
Shoes: TJ Maxx: 29.99 Report brand

So my sister had her baby shower at her old job, Wild Wings, on a Sunday. My outfit choice was last minute. I saw the shirt that I had thrifted and my black shorts just hanging around so I felt it was destined to be paired together. The blazer was just my signature touch.

Saturday OOTD: Leather Wearing in the Summertime

Uncategorized

20140809-183928-67168306.jpg

The Deets:
Flannel Shirt: Goodwill: 2.00 Cherokee Brand
Skirt: EBay: 6.00 No name
Shoes: TJ Maxx: 29.00 Rampage
Earrings : Wet Seal. I do not remember the price.

So if your 26 or over you remember the classic, ” Waiting To Exhale”. One of my favorite lines if not the only favorite was when Robin, played by Lela Rochon screams out ” Troy, if you don’t take yo leather wearing in the summer time…”. She says more but I honestly couldn’t get past that part. It’s always made me laugh and afraid to date any guys name Troy, kmsl. (Side note: I also think of Troy Ave too)

I’ve been seeing a lot of faux joggers and tops featured in recent OOTDs on Facebook. Gotta say I’m not that brave yet. It’s too hot here in sc. I will stick with the skater skirt.

My outfit was inspired by the trend of flannel showing up everywhere and my 5 year obsession with flannel.

Plan on seeing me in flannel for the rest of the year! I plan on coming back with a look book including flannel.

More pics from that night:

So for Lauren’s party I decided to pick up this little number or should I say pieces! I stopped by Ross with my brother and couldn’t resist shopping. I came across the bottoms first and the peplum top second. The price of the “set” was less than 10.00. I felt so accomplished, lolx.

I’m stumped on what type of shoes to wear and how to wear my hair. Let me know any thoughts below.
