So, surprisingly, I’ve never really done my own style posts. I write about fashion – on celebs, pieces I like, trends I’m into, etc. But, unlike other fashion bloggers, that’s where I stop. I have this terrible fear of the camera that defies logic. But, in the name of fashion, I’m throwing those fears aside and starting to photograph my favorite looks.
Most of my apparel I buy on a budget from places like Marshalls – and I’m one of “those people” who is pretty anal about the care of her garments, specifically my shoes. They are kept neatly in their boxes, complete with the tissue paper stuffing. Regardless, I’ll give you the deets of where I purchased each piece (and approximately how long ago). Here goes my first personal style post with looks centered around one of my favorite skirts!
I love this edgy look for evening or date night.
This Shredded Handbag is one of my favorites. I purchased it in the fall of 2008. It’s from Lolabean and is still available at some stores, but you likely have to do a search for it.
These suede peep toe studded booties are from Steve Madden circa winter 2008 (ish).
This Side Knot Necklace is available at my own boutique, currently on sale for $70. It’s heavy and gives off a “tangled” vibe. I love both of those qualities!
This skirt becomes perfect for day with a knotted tee and the changing up of the accessories.
All of these accessories fit the laid-back vibe I was going for and are available at 24-7 Style: Small Wave Bangle ($30) and Large Wave Bangle ($33)…both are Mother-of-Pearl. The Hannah Crossbody/Clutch ($130) is made from refurbished leather and suede.
I found these adorable Classified gladiator sandals at a cute boutique in Pittsburgh when visiting a friend in the summer of 2008. They were a steal, only around $25!
Here’s the scoop on the remaining pieces, not mentioned above:
The pleated mullet skirt I got at Target this past fall. I adore the deep tan with a hint of mauve color! Sorry, it’s no longer available. For my evening look, I’m wearing a tank from Old Navy, gosh, probably from 2007! The sequin detailing at the shoulders is discreet, yet gives it an edgy vibe. The belt is just a cheapy that came with a dress I purchased ages ago. The Swiss Army Ring is hard to pick up in these pictures, but I once again love it’s edgy vibe. You can find it at 24-7 Style for $33.
For my day look, I opted for a super casual heathered mauve Mossimo tee from Target. I’m addicted to them and stock up when they go on sale for $5! The necklaces are all vintage family heirlooms. My family has great taste!
