Fringe Please

IMG_3157

So ummm, on this particular day I completely forgot that I work in a conservative environment and decided to get dressed in an outfit that was a bit risqué. There was no way I could’ve walked into the workplace dressed like this.  All of my thighs were exposed with each step I took.funny-black-man-face-shocked-e1337411871915

It was totally impossible for me to pull this off as a work outfit. If I worked in a more liberal, fashion friendly environment, it would’ve been on point.

Thankfully that night I had a movie date which it was perfect for. Oh yeah, I was determined to wear this skirt after it sat in my closet almost the entire winter with the tags.  Unsuccessful!!

IMG_3159IMG_3156Tidbit: Dress accordingly for the environment, workplace, occasion or event.  Don’t be unsuccessful.

All items worn were featured on the blog previously except the fringe skirt purchased from JustFab– membership required to order.

Tipping the “Scales”

Mark by Avon does it again! Every time I say no more spending any unnecessary coins I check out the Mark catalog then another item purchased.

My Avon rep showed up with a catalog filled with goodies.  I managed to only purchase one item instead of the 5 “must haves” circled. Not too bad!!

The blazer was a must have.  I couldn’t resist purchasing it.  Oh yeah, did I mention there was a 20% off coupon located online.  #winning

There’s no such thing as too many blazers, although this past winter blazers weren’t my first choice.

 As stated in previous blogs, blazers are the perfect accessory. IMG_3191 (Edited)They can be worn casually with denim & a tee shirt, business casually or traditionally, as business wear. Heck, wear ’em with shorts, why don’t you.

The blazer was worn both times casually.

Tidbit: Before ordering online via any website, search online coupon codes because you just never know what’s available.  Try multiple codes if need be; one just may work 🙂

Silver Streak

When I try not to spend my coins, but my Avon representative shows up with a new catalog enticing me. The eye catcher this time were the Silver Streak Sneaks.  I had to have them. IMG_4878I ordered them along with a pair of pumps that were a must have too. IMG_4870 (Edited)Truth be told, I had no clue how I was going to wear my new sneakers or with what for that matter, but I knew I wanted to wear them as soon as they arrived. After all they took forever to arrive due to an error with my address.

The day I decided to wear them was a work day for me so I had to pull off a successful business casual look with a little flare. All black was the simplest way to go & most appropriate. The brief case was worn to give it the business feel (there was no real business going on in that brief case…lol).

IMG_4867 (Edited)The attention these sneaks received was incredible.  All I could do was rant & rave about how comfortable & affordable they are. They are super worth it! Go get you a pair before they’re sold out.

All other items worn are remixed pieces from my wardrobe .

Tidbit: If you don’t have an Avon rep, please feel free to use mine, Esther Blackwood. Coupon codes can be used when ordering via her website.

Spring Layers

IMG_4859 (Edited)

When you get invited to a high school graduation and have no clue what to wear.

What do you do? Pants were totally out of the question, purchasing something new was not an option; after all I have a closet full of clothes that can be remixed.

Temperatures were expected to be hot, so something cool, yet cute was the objective. Decisions, decisions, decisions! Okay, got it! A simple t-shirt dress & duster. The duster worn as a layer of color since the dress was solid. Both items had been worn before separately.

You know I am all about remixing pieces in an effort to save coins. For the graduation I decided to remix the items locking them together with a braided, fringe belt. The Express Belt is new to my wardrobe. Faux suede belts seem to be a common accessory for spring 2016.

What I Wore:

Duster- Similar

T-Shirt dress Similar

Shoes- Similar

Tidbit: Layers are totally acceptable during the spring months. Enjoy them!!
