It’s been quite awhile since I did a post like this, and I want to do them more frequently to show women that we are no different from the women in the magazines! Just open your magazine, then your closet and get inspired!!!

Flipping through the October/November Issue of People Stylewatch, I came across an article “How To: A Pleated Midi” and I thought to myself that I have a pleated skirt! Step 1…✔ I also have a white tee, a turtleneck, a vest, a a denim shirt!

Let it be known, you don’t have to have the exact colors or clothing, the exact shoes, or anything exact for that matter, you just need inspiration.

Let’s start with the pleated skirt and white tee…

My pleated skirt is knee length, I added a denim jacket to my look for a more put together look, I am holding my shades instead of wearing them, obviously because it’s dark outside…BUT you see the inspiration!

Denim Jacket: Thrifted

Pleated Skirt: Thrifted

Handbag: Vegan Leather, Nordstrom Rack

Sneakers: Asics

Next we have the pleated skirt with denim shirt…

Denim Shirt: Guess

Handbag: Olivia + Joy (thrifted)

Shoes: BCBG (thrifted)

Lastly, we have the pleated skirt with turtleneck and vest…

Vest: Petite Sophisticate

Turtleneck: Brooks Brothers (thrifted)

Shoes: Thrifted

All the pieces I have on, I already had, I did not have to purchase for this post. Imagine what amazing looks you have hanging in your closet, but you say you have nothing to wear! Which look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments…thanks so much for stopping by 💋

I have worked in retail off and on for 13 years now, and I have seen it all. People who don’t work in retail will never understand the mindset of an individual who does. As someone in a non management position, you experience so much more when it comes to customers. There are about a handful of sweet and pleasant experiences, then there are the liars…manipulaters…indecisive…non parental but have kids…and the “I’m always right!” customers.

Today I just want to share with you all some things to make everyone’s shopping experience better, you as the customer and me as the employee.

1. Go shopping with a plan or idea of what it is you want and actually truly need. Why come in a store to fill up your entire cart, only to get 2 to 3 items and leave the rest for me to put back? Oh wait, I know, you’re giving me work to do so I won’t be bored! Try again…

2. Be a parent! Watch your child/children…it is NOT, I repeat NOT my job or any other employees job to watch your child/children for you while you shop. I don’t know how many times a child has come up to me lost, can’t find their parent, 1 year olds damn near out the front door…ALONE!

3. Do not ask me my opinion more than 2x about 1 item. I am the most honest person when it comes to buying, I will not have you wasting money then blame me and try to return something. So, if I say the outfit is fly, the handbag is perfect, etc, just go with it!

4. Do not complain to me or any other employees about pricing, policies or any other matter we have no control over. Especially if you are a frequent shopper and have prior knowledge of said issues, I DIDN’T DO IT!

Lastly,

5. At a very early age the majority of us learned to put things back where and how we found it. Let’s reminisce on those times and remember how much trouble we got into if we didn’t put stuff back where and how we found it. As a merchandiser, that annoys me on a whole other level!

I hope we all have a better understanding of each other now 😊 and hopefully during your next shopping trip you’ll take some of the mentioned into consideration. If you work in retail and have anymore tips on How To Shop, let me know!!!

How To Shop…

Aside
fashion, Uncategorized

Hello…Hello…Hello!!! A couple of weeks ago I did a Fall Fashion 2017 Look Book on my YouTube channel. I put 4 looks together, focusing on color…fabrication…and weather. Let’s face it, some days it will be unseasonably warm and the next ridiculously cold. So, I think that’s how we need to approach this season.

Every year you may see subtle changes with fashion from season to season but a few key things remain the same, one being color. For Fall you want to be inspired by nature, especially in the early parts of the season. Look at the leaves from the trees and start there. You have colors like burnt orange, dark red, brown…and the grass gets a little darker green.

Next is texture! Fabrication gets heavier, you have heavier denim, suede, corduroy, and layering is key!

When it comes to Fall Fashion, stick to these trends, they will never change! That way you won’t have to break the bank buying every year. Out of the 4 looks I posted 3 things are new, the green corduroy jacket, the black shoes with the studs and the coat I’m holding in the last look…and all 3 were thrifted! I spent less than 20 dollars for all three.

Before I go, I want to share key items you need in your wardrobe for Fall/Winter:

Cable Knit and Infinity scarves

A trench coat

A leather jacket

Knee boots (black & brown)

Booties

Faux leather pants

Corduroys

Tights

Ok, let’s just start there…I don’t want to overwhelm you. I hope that I have inspired you with my Fall fashion, and if you have anything to add please leave me a comment,  I would love to hear from you 💋

Fall Fashion 2017

Oh so THRIFTY!

Hey there!  Hope you all are well and in great spirits while reading this.  I wanted to share with you all my recent Thrift Store purchases and some rules I have when thrifting.  I do not do a whole lot of shopping, it’s definitely to a point of actually really needing something or it has to really stand out to me.

I posted a thrifted look on my IG a few days ago and made it part of my first giveaway.  If you guessed how much the entire look was, being $5 lower or higher, you would win.  This is the look…

I really loved this look, I am all for a casual chic combination and this was exactly that. All of the items were purchased a different times and it all just came together.

This look cost $15, but I got the shoes at 33% off of $4.99, and the skirt and top were 50% off of $3.99 and $5.99, so I actually paid $8.40 I believe.

Next we have this cute mid drift zippered top from Asos that I purchased for like $6, maybe lol…

Lastly, I am no longer a fan of actual pajamas, I like negligee’s and sexy loungewear.  I found this Victoria Secret piece…

This was about $4….such great pieces at very very affordable prices.

RULES TO THRIFTING!

1. Carve out a time frame, because depending on the size of the store, you could be there for hours.

2. Go alone or with someone who will be extremely focused shopping as well and will understand why you are in such deep thought while roaming through the aisles.

3. Give yourself a budget, just because you are in the thrift store means nothing, trust me the prices add up pretty quickly!

4. Find out when the sale days are

5.  Check for the return policy, and other consumer rules

6. Don’t go in expecting to find anything, you will then find so much more!

These are just a few rules to start off…thrift shopping is not what it used to be, everyone is benefiting from it.  Have you thrifted before?  Share your experience, I’d love to hear from you!
