#frugalfashionista: essays with Emerson

After a Saturday full of shopping and great finds, Sunday’s morning is more tranquil. 

My week had been bustling with preparations for meetings and design coordinations. The weekend was a shopping filled one and then topped off with Italian dining and entertainment. Today I woke up with the eagerness to start my day with me myself and I. I popped out of bed to change the k cup for a fresh one and then pushed the blue lit button for my fresh cup of a breakfast blend. On my way to the couch, I reached for my new-old copy of essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson in passing. After pulling aside my white drapes I fixed myself underneath the plush faux fur throw, reached for a few sips of the steaming coffee and then turned open the pages of my new book. 

In truth he isn’t so new hence my “new old” reference earlier. It was a lucky and happy find at yesterday’s thrift store venture. With his signature on the cover and the publishing stamp from 1926 it was a find I would purchase in a heart beat, and I did for only $1.99. I love classic literature and transcendentalist writings. I have a nerdy weak spot for it. 

So happy Sunday!

Much love-MA

  

#frugalfashionista : from one fashionista to others 

I had been seeing this book over and over in other bloggers’ and illustrators’ pictures and decided to look it up. Written by a renowned fashion PR guru, it is a book for young and fresh fashionistas. She dishes the real of the industry to those entering. It’s also a good pick up for those already in the industry seeking motivation and looking to maybe reinvent themselves. 

I found this lovely “literature” on amazon for $4 at the cheapest. 

Not bad for another fashionista summer read!

Great read. I’m already saying this and I’m not even done with it yet. So inspiring and yet humorous. I love stories that show come one coming above their tough situations. This is one of them. While I bought mine at Barnes you can most certainly find it for cheaper online. I was just too impatient to wait!

#frugalfashionista : fabulousity – fashionista’s fav read

Well it’s one of mine anyway. It’s like the fabulous and glamorous version of the book “the secret.” I’m not a super fan of Kimora lee Simmons but the book is plain awesome! It’s so inspiring and motivating. It’s a great confidence builder for those down days too. I’ve read it once and I’m reading it again after several years.

Stay fabulous!

Much love – MA
