#frugalfashionista : gapinc. And their good deals!

Of course I had put away most of my sweaters and warm clothes only for New England to be hit with another weekend of snow and low temps! So while I was waiting for my hair appointment I decided to peer into some stores. Well I peered right into some pretty good sales. Perfect too that they would be winter purging Bc their winter purges served my shopping urges!

#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: thrifted treasures

Thrifting on a New England Sunday. My sister and dad came to visit me in boston during this long Columbus Day weekend and we made a trip to the thrift store to start out our Sunday. 

My finds: 

  
I fell absolutely in love with the charms on this necklace. It perfectly reflects my love for travel. Picking it up was a no brainer!

  
This was what really made my heart jump in excitement. It was a collection of Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte books. They were editions from 1922! I have a large place in my heart for classic novels and period films, so this was a heart warming find! 

I also found two pics of furniture for my living room. Those I will share In a later post once they’ve been restored. 

Today was a successful hunt.

#frugalfashionista: local love 

Ive lived in various locations and plan to continue that for a while but ohio will always be my home state. This was definitely one of the cutest and yet simplest ways to show some local love. 

Right in the short north district amid many other shops sits tigertree. I plucked this charmer off one of their cabinet shelves. Only $14! 

O-H!!

#frugalfashionista : presenting big ideas

We had a design edits meeting that day, and it would be the first time that I got to present for the team. I was presenting our doll clothes concept. So naturally I needed to be extra sharp. 

I loved how loud this pink necklace was especially against the black and white print. So there it was nice and clear! A loud statement! My presentation was too of course 😉

#frugalfashionista : sparkle and shine that statement is mine 

Hello fashionistas! I took a mini hiatus from posting while away in Europe, but still have plenty to share with you all! 

It’s been a week since I’ve been back and I still haven’t completely unpacked, but once I do I have many little souvenirs to share with you. In the mean time I have my usual fantastic fashion finds. 

I recently went into walmart for some quick grocery and stumbled across these gems! They’re usually $10 and I’ve picked up a few in the past, but this time around they were marked down. I loveeeee statement necklaces and I always found it quite surprising that they were available in a mass market Mecca like walmart, but if I didn’t tell you where they were from you would think they were from a boutique like Francesca’s. They look that good, and the prices even better. Sure beats the Francesca’s $30 a piece. 

Take a look for yourself! 

Much love – MA
