#frugalfashionista: flask fashionĀ 

It was the thing back in highschool to have a flask, you know…so you could sneak in that little drink in your purse or garter onto that prom dance floor šŸ˜‰ 
Several years later I’m still deciding it would be a nice to have. Something to decorate my scotch cabinet, and just something to make sure I’m always prepared for a good night šŸ™‚

#frugalfashionista : fashion face

  
I’ve been eyeing the too faced chocolate bar palette since I had seen the tutorial by Marianne Ramos. But spending $50 on a palette was hard to bite on. 

This past Xmas my new boss gave me a gift card to Sephora. It was such an awesome gesture. I knew exactly what I was going to purchase with it. When I found the time I headed to Sephora and picked out my semi sweet chocolate bar palette. 

Filled with an array of fun colors and scents of subtle sweetness I was a happy customer. I even walked out with a second item of Sephora brand contour/highlighting stick seeing as I was running out of my smashbox version. 

$49 too faced palette

$20 contour/highlight duo stick

Worth the investment!

#frugalfashionista: f21 finds

I’m not a huge fan of forever21 anymore, after all I’m not longer 21 and as you get older you usually have a salary that allows you to buy better quality. Every once in a while though I still pop in for a thing or two, like these quick pick me up accessories. 
An edgy gold necklace with simple lines to pop a simple black dress. Or this bright red pop of color of an accessory to contrast a tonal outfit. 
What are your fav finds at f21?

#frugalfashionista : feeling feline

During a recent trip to San Diego I perused the mall while my boyfriend and his colleague worked at conference. It was a quiet sunny Cali weekday and all of the January sales were out. I strolled into Bcbg with more interest in their latest silhouettes as opposed to the sales. It just so happened that I did walk in on really good sales. I walked out with one too!

#frugalfashionista : fancy foto frames

I needed a little love and personalization added to my work desk and my living room. I had done a great job with the decor but failed to put up favorite photos. I knew I would find frames with a little style and at a little price at marshalls, so I picked them out there. 

In a vast selection I picked two to match my home and office decor. Simple, clean, gold and white. Adds another little reason to look at my desk and smile!
