Real Life Clothes

I bought this fabulous little jacket at Forever21 and had the chance to wear it on a date last week.  I wanted to show y'all how I styled it and what it actually looks like on someone.

I wore it with a black cotton dress from Urban Outfitters last spring,
my Michael Kors watch and some black wedges.

Friend Requests

I received a message earlier from a friend asking me to help her make outfits with her new black skirt.  With this one skirt, I was able to make 3 completely different looks: dressy, colorful, and casual!  (To see where the items are from, click the pictures)






Blue in the Face with Fashion

Fall 2011 is the season to play with colors! Cobalt blue is going to be one of the hottest pops of color to add to your wardrobe.  The easiest contrast color is white, but I'm going to dare you to pair it with coral.  Keep the neutral colors in your shoes and cardigan if you choose to wear one.  (If you are not going to wear the sweater, be sure to add a belt and necklace!)

tibi-esque

If it were up to me and not my wallet, I would wear tibi every day.  Unfortunately, I can't afford to drop $400 on a dress just because it's fabulous.  If you too like designer style but are also monetarily inhibited, try one of these inexpensive versions of tibi's coveted dresses.

Tops Galore

Is it just me, or do we always buy dresses and keep telling ourselves we need more tops?? I think we get stuck in this frustrating purchasing slump because the tops we find are never as cute as the dresses.  I've finally found some that are going to rival the dresses you keep putting in your shopping cart but never buying.  Plus, with prices from $12-35, you can afford to buy some accessories too!
*** These are UK sizes which are 4 number sizes larger than ours. Ex: UK 6= our 2, 8 = 4,10 = 6, etc.

Styles From the UK

While surfing the web for the best fashion finds, I stumbled upon a UK gem; dorothyperkins.com.  Although most similar out of country sites do not ship to the U.S., this one does! (For $12) They have some of the cutest and most reasonable clothing, shoes, and accessories.  If you're tired of checking forever21, lulus and urbanoutfitters religiously, try checking out some of the thousands of styles on dorothyperkins.com! Here is a taste of what to expect:

**Including shipping, you can get all 3 of these for under $40**

Grey & Yellow: A fun new color combo!

I've been noticing a new trend lately: grey and yellow.  Although I'm not a huge fan of either color, somehow they work together.  I found a cute way to test out this combo for around $60.  You can wear the sweater dress all the way through fall!

LBD

The little black dress.  Instead of blending in with a boring black dress, stand out with this one-shouldered beauty from ModCloth!  Keep the look fluid with black shoes, but spice it up with a pop of color in a fun pair of earrings. ** Jewelry is the easiest and cheapest way to liven up an old (or new) outfit.**

Denim & Lace

Lace is making a huge comeback and you won't hear me complaining!  You can't look in any magazine without seeing someone decked out in delicate doilies of lace.  The easiest (and safest) way to try this recycled trend is in a top and paired with some dark jeans.  However, if you want to try something a little more unpredictable, try wearing the denim on top and lace on the bottom.

Shopping in the Store > Shopping Online

Finding outfits online is one thing, but being able to go to the store and try on different things is another.  Although I would have overlooked this red dress on the website, it was screaming my name in the store.  It was extremely comfortable and could easily be dressed up or down.  I decided to make it look a little fancier with a pearl necklace that I was already wearing and a white lace blazer.

I found this knit skirt today, and just had to feature it! I love the fun colors in it and that it's a sweater material.  This outfit would look great with an endless red scarf and some flat brown boots.  You could also wear a solid top in any of the skirt's colors for a whole new look!
