SUCH A STEAL.......



WHAT I WORE: H&M: Pants I Arden B: Sweater I Forever 21: Chestnut  Bootie Wedges I H&M: Burgundy Hat I Elle: Faux Fur Vest I Forever 21: Bracelets I Target: Leopard Belt I Dooney & Bourke: Satchel Bag 

 Happy Wednesday!!! So, let me start off with this question…why can't Christmas season have knock off deals all year long? Stores should consider having more discounted sales after Christmas instead of consumers paying full price (I'm such a frugal shopper and I really don't like paying full price, I just love a bargain)! After the Christmas holiday, I bought these two items, the faux fur vest and the chestnut bootie wedges for HALF OFF of the original price. It was totally worth it, because as soon as I picked up these items, the wheels in my head began turning. I was already making outfit ideas that I could create. Personally, if you want shoes that you can wear at work or late night going out with some of your colleagues; booties are the way to go.  Seriously, they are the best things ever made for women because they are so comfortable and you can still be so stylish (Let's keep it real;you won't damage your feet after 3 hours of wearing them). I cannot tell you enough how much I love faux fur vest...I've learned over the years that you should keep key pieces that never go out of style. As soon as I saw this vest, it reminded me of the many puffy vests I have from from the 90's.  I'm not ever giving away this vest; it is so versatile that there are so many ways to wear it.  You can opt to wear this vest by putting it over jackets, sweaters, blazers, or even a dress. No matter how you wear it-- dressed up or down, you can still pull off a chic look and still keep warm during the winter...Brrr, it is cold out there!                                                 

                                                  Fashion Love,
