Hey Hey ChristainFaithFashionistas!
I pray you all had a great weekend (extended weekend for some). I had an opportunity to do a mini shoot for some pieces that I’ve recently purchased. Now, ya’ll know I am a BUDGET-NISTA as well… lol. Therefore all of these pieces can be found at your local mall or outlet plaza. I really hope you all enjoy! Like, Comment & Share!
The idea for this look all began with this dress romper. I will admit when I bought this dress from Forever 21, I thought is was a maroon romper. The color caught my eye and the price tag. This beauty was only $17! Yass, darlings less than 20 bucks. I had the most difficult time pairing it with a shirt/blouse. At the very last minute I remembered I had a rouge top I purchased from Mandee (that I tried to return just a week prior but was late by 1 day -__-). Oh, well it worked out for me! The hat is also from Mandee at $10 and the fab comfy booties are from Charlotte Russe for $20 (Labor Day sale) Gosh, I almost forgot! I fell in love with this mini circle fringe bag from Forman Mills. Again, dear its not always about where you shop!. This bag was $7.99
I wore this $16.97 dress from Rainbow Stores once before to the Macy’s Front Row Fashion Show. I love it so I decided to rock it again! This time I paired it with the hat from Mandee and $25 Fringe heels from Mandee as well. Simple & Chic.
I will say that I am not one to rock my arms out. IDK if its because I was raise in the Haitian church but you will RARELY see me without a jacket, cardigan, blazer etc.
Here we have the same Mandee rouge top and hat. This time I’m rocking a more edgy look. I would wear this to a concert. In fact, I will be going to see Andy Mineo in concert soon. So if you follow me on IG (@christianfaithfashionista) then you may see this look again. IJS! lol My favorite jeans in all the land are also from Mandees for a low $29.99. These jeans are YMI Jeans.
I purchased this blouse from Forever 21 for about $20. I debated a lot with this blouse. Its so versatile. I can pair it with a pencil skirt and wear it to church, a pair of slacks for work or jeans with a nice pair of pumps for a fun dinner with the girls. I totally dressed it down in this picture but you guys get the idea.
Selfies are ALWAYS appropriate! lol
However, I really wanted to show you guys these gorgeous headphones from Icing. This gem was only $15! Ha! but I got them for free. How, you ask? Well, Icing had a buy one get one for free sale. I bought eye-shadow at regular price and the headphones were on clearance already so they were free!
The moral of the story folks is that you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look nice. Its all in styling and finding pieces that you love and that are versatile. I think my next fashion shoot will be on high fashion name brands. You’ll never guess how much those items retail for and how much I purchase them for. Stay tuned until next time!
Love ya to Peace,
