Summer Fun in Fringe

Kicking off Memorial Day weekend with nice warm weather and some of my favorite sales is a great way to start the summer season! Here is a fun outfit I wore today that is a perfect example of mixing non-expensive clothing pieces with brand name accessories. I often receive questions on how I balance my looks and combine cheap with expensive. I tend to mix old pieces I already have or affordable H&M and Forever21 trendy items with a nice bag or pair of shoes. Also, I never pay full-price for anything, no matter how nice it is or how much I love it. I try to find coupons for my favorite stores or wait for deeper discounts.

Speaking of sales, these RES ripped jeans I purchased back during the winter sales are still available on Nasty Gal. Better yet, the retailer is offering extra 40% off their sale items. Rest assured there are great ones too! The clutch featured below is from a recent sale at Gypsy05, a local boutique at Tivoli Village. Their prices are on the high end, but if you’re looking for unique items and impeccable quality you will find their outfits and accessories worth the splurge.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend and happy shopping!

Holiday Look – Part II

In my previous Holiday Look post I featured a versatile semi-casual outfit. Today, I am offering a dressier version that is also very classy. The tulle skirt adds a little bit of Parisian flare to the outfit. The red top makes it pop while making the look very festive. Finally, this chunky statement necklace completes the whole look.

Special thanks to Anjolee for partnering with me this holiday season. Their jewelry collection is absolutely gorgeous and each piece is custom made. I encourage you to browse their large selection of bridal diamond sets as it offers a wide selection for any taste. Below, I am wearing the Vintage Beauty Diamond Band, which makes a great anniversary gift. Enjoy!
