Style Files with PrettyPrice: BCBG Leather Sleeve Blazer, Thrifted White House Black Market Tweed Skirt, and Black Over-the-Knee Socks

Thursday, November 7, 2013 · No Comments

 

Sweeties,

I don’t need to tell you how much I love my leather sleeve BCBG Max Azria blazer. You have seen it enough on the blog to know it’s my absolute favorite.I’ve worn this blazer like a gazillion times, but it works with everything so I can’t help it.  Luckily for me leather accents are on trend this season so I’ll have even more opportunities to style in this cute number. When I wore the blazer this time around I wanted an office chic look. Teamed with my tweed White House Black Market skirt this look was ready for the workplace.

Sweeties,

I’m caught up in another love affair. This time it’s with plaid. As you know this summer I was head over hills in LOVE with polka dots.  As the season changed, I quickly jumped ship and I’m on to the next. For the next few months it’s all about plaid! Continue Reading »

Impress for Less: Get Givenchy’s Shark Lock Foldover Wedge Boots like Kim Kardashian, Brandy, Taraji P. Henson ,and LaLa Anthony

Friday, September 27, 2013 · 2 Comments

 

I’ve been drooling over these Givenchy boots for the last year.  Kim Kardashian , LaLa Anthony , and Brandy are just some of the many people spotted rocking the stylish boots. The boots look great with dresses, skirts, and apparently  shorts. I mean, who doesn’t love a versatile shoe?  While the boots are gorgeous and I would love to put them in heavy rotation this fall, I just can’t seem to swing the $1,900 for the boots. I’m not quite in that tax bracket, YET!   So as I was browsing for super cute and inexpensive boots  for the season, I stumbled on a pair of boots that were almost identical to the Givenchy wedge boots.

Thank you sweet Jesus for these Enzo Angiolini Damus Wedge Boots.  The boots are similar without looking like an imitation shoe,  if you catch my drift.

This summer I’ve been fascinated with pleats and polka dots and my vintage Schrader Petite dress has both. I nabbed this blue and white shirt dress several months ago from the thrift store and I’m finally getting around to wearing it.  I teamed my printed dress with red accents including the thrifted purse and belt. I love the gold buttons and the overall shape of the dress. Continue Reading »

I was drooling over Kelly Rowland’s black halter dress she wore to Prive nightclub in Atlanta last week.  The accordion style dress was gorgeous and her Giuseppe Zanotti  black and gold plated sandals were to die for.  Too bad these beauties are out of my budget at $1, 1695. Lucky for me I can still get me sexy on and save a few bucks with  Mia  Limited Edition “Lenny” Sandals.

Who doesn’t love a little style inspiration? From trendsetters like Rihanna to fashion mavens like Solange I love recreating some of their looks.  I find myself doing that more with looks from “The Real” talk show host Adrienne Bailon. If I want a sexy look I turn to the former Cheetah Girl.  Typically her looks are  perfect for clubbing with the girls like her most recent look she posted on Instagram.. Continue Reading »
