I am one lucky lady. Why? Because I live in this gorgeous city, with a fierce posse, and belong to a community where fashion is appreciated. I am also lucky because this outfit was such a good deal no one could believe it when I told them how little it cost. All I had to do was just work with what I already had in my closet. This scares people but you can do it. (now if it TERRIFIES you…just hire me & I’ll come help you.)


DSC_1110I wore this get up to a Windy City Blogger’s event here in Chicago sponsored by Rakuten Marketing. This fierce marketing team helps sponsor bloggers & creates affiliate partnerships. You can check out this fabulous team & all they are about HERE! (P.s they work with some awesome companies like Vince Camuto, Sephora, 7 For All Man Kind, and more!)


DSC_1097Moving on….I put on this light pink frock that I bought from H&M for only…yes I am going to say it…10 DOLLARS. The hem line is normally straight across, but I decided to add my own personal touch by knotting the bottom of it to show some leg. That choice was a hit, as everyone kept complimenting me on how I tied it. (Knotting things has been a major habit for me lately & a great way to dress up your skirts for the summer)

DSC_1149Added the lace up heels that are originally from justfab.com, BUT- I got them at platos closet for only…yes I’m going to say it once again….8 DOLLARS.


DSC_1162I, of course, finalized the look with nothing other then a statement necklace (emerald green  looks so bangin’ with light pink) & finished it off with a bejeweled clutch! And voila, with a bright lip, wine, food, friends, & an amaze balls photographer, I was strutting around the city while enjoying old and new friends.

DSC_1103There you have it; with a good eye, a creative mind, and a fab posse, you can look chic for cheap by just working with what you have! That way you can just spend the money you didn’t spend on an overly expensive outfit- on things like booze and ubers (;


DSC_1120Special shout out to my fab roomates/photographer/supporters for joining me & always lookin’ fab!



Oh & to Lindzi (The Trendy Sparrow) for always making me laugh & gettin’ all Southern belle with me.
