Fashion Shopping

February 2014 Budget

February Budget

Not much to report this month! I lost my two faux fur scarves during our move, so I wanted a new one and decided to go for a faux fur snood. I also recently discovered Modern Citizen and have fallen in love with every collection! They have a lot of modern, professional looking pieces that I would love to add to my closet. I have been looking for a quilted faux leather skirt and really loved the side details on this one. I hope to be sharing it on the blog soon!

Snood – Asos, on sale $17.88 (whoot whoot for free shipping!) (Similar here and here)

Skirt – Modern Citizen, $71.20 (with 20% discount I got because I at first ordered a shirt, but it was out of stock, so they offered me a code) It is $79.00 without shipping. (Similar here and here)

Total: $89.08

Yay! I finally spent under $100. I am really trying to focus on building up my wardrobe with basics again (I have had to get rid of a lot of old jeans, t-shirts, tanks) before I buy any trendy pieces. Although I cannot wear this skirt to work, I think it will be a good staple for me to have in my closet for weekends, date nights and happy hours with my girls! And let’s talk about this winter, shall we? Just kidding. Let’s not. It’s depressing and I am only looking ahead. My faux fur snood keeps me warm, end of story.

A Month of Outfits: December

Looks like I forgot to do an outfit recap for November, so I didn’t want to get to much further in the New Year without a recap of December’s outfits!


Sassy Accessories

Recently, I was contacted by Firmoo about trying out a pair of glasses, in my case, non-prescription glasses, and do a review on the fit and style.  I LOVE the idea of wearing glasses as an accessory and honestly I have always been jealous of people who wear glasses because I think they are so adorable and can really make you look sassy!  Glasses = nerdy? No… glasses = sexy! Just like a great statement necklace, bag or pair of heels, non-prescription glasses can really make a statement and be fun with more dressy or casual outfits.  I have styled a pair of non-prescription glasses I bought last year with a menswear look (seen here) so this time I wanted to style the Firmoo pair with a more casual, fun outfit! Faux leather leggings, a white blouse, chambray top and leopard print heels is an outfit I could wear all day, every day and a look I can wear out too! I absolutely love my pair of Firmoo and can’t wait to wear it with more dressy and office-appropriate looks.

If you are looking for a stylish, cute pair of prescription or non-prescription glasses, Firmoo has a wide selection where you can narrow down the options by shape, material and frame. I liked the idea of a rectangular frame and a tortoise print, similar to my favorite pair of sunglasses.  If you are looking for a new pair of glasses, Firmoo offers first-time buyers a free pair (you just have to pay the shipping)! Always nice if you are looking to try something new!
