#frugalfashionista: pretty n petite pretentious professionals 

I’ve had a thing for banana republic lately, and even more so bc they have a very convenient petite section for a very petite me. I’ve probably stopped in the store more than once every two weeks the past month or more and if I’m not it the store I’m browsing on my phone. They’ve really upped their trend game for women lately (I’ve felt there menswear has Always looked good) and I’m loving what I’m seeing and buying for that matter.

Plus they’ve been having great sales lately! 

Much love -MA


Bold Beautiful Black and White

black n white-page-001


My favorite look out there lately is as the title says. Black and white. If you think about it black has always been and forever will be a classic shade in fashion. More recently i’ve been seeing windows put away the bright neons, and soft pastels, but replacing them with stark black and white contrasts. The pair together is so sophisticated and so sharp.

Go classic at the office in a white dress topped with a black blazer. Then take that look to dinner or a night out by adding on a black jeweled statement necklace and a black snake clutch.

Or bare it bold with a black on white graphic or tribal print dress.

Make sure to pair it with monotone accessories!

This is a look, for as simple as the combination is, that definitely turns heads in a world of color.
