Pin-spiration

This post is meant for all of you savvy Pinterest addicts out there. I, like you, love to browse Pinterest, it’s many inspirational trends and fun finds. So…in addition to my celebrity trend look alikes, I will occasionally pull a trending ensemble from Pinterest and put together a look alike for a fraction of the cost of the original. This whole outfit was originally thousands of dollars, but you can get the entire outfit PLUS all of the accessories for less than $200.

Keep in mind that the minimalism of this outfit with an added punch of blue is what keeps this classic style flowing and brilliant. Style hair casually to play down the structured jacket and add a smoky eye for a touchy of mystery.

Enjoy, fashionable friends!

Fab & Frugal Deal of the Day (#2)

Because I’ve been MIA for so long, I’ve decided to post TWO Fab & Frugal Deals. This second deal is an entire outfit and, as always, totals less than $100.

Although we’re all looking forward to fall, we still have a full 5 days until Labor Day which means that we should wear the heck out of our white summer clothes until then. Am I right?

Well, many of these items can be transitioned into fall which is why they’re part of today’s deal. Pair the tops with some shorts to keep it on trend for the end of summer or throw on some fantastic black pants and a cardi for a fall tone down. I went with something super feminine to wrap up the holiday weekend just because most of the fall styles are really edgy and dramatic. Enjoy!

My apologies for the gap…

It’s true, fashionable friends, that I took a small break from posting. I apologize for my absence and would like to reassure you that I am back on track! 

We all know that the largest part of this blog is dedicated to bringing you all things frugally fashionable, the second part is maintaining frugality. In all my scoping out great deal for you, I was beyond tempted to overspend on myself. As most women can probably relate to, I wanted to buy EVERYTHING I had found. Well, now I’ve got a handle on my urge to spend and am returning to you daily updates on great finds that would surely benefit your wardrobe and spring forward your style.

So…welcome back…to all of us. Happy shopping, fashionably frugal friends!
