Fashionably Affordable

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Last night my girl friend and I went to a pre-season shopping event with an on-site fashion consultant at a local boutique. While I didn't take any pictures, I took in some of the fashion trends. Keeping budget and style in mind (because I can't afford a $300 shirt), I took that advice and looked up some pieces on one of my favorite online stores, Lulus.

Comfortable and feminine pieces in olive green and other neutral colors
Simple Syrup Olive Green Dress - $36
Booties
Anne Michelle Strut 69 Gray Faux Suede Lace Up Booties - $33
Sheer top with fun undergarment
Nocturnal Half Sleeve Croppy Top by Alternative Apparel - $37
Belts (skinny or fat)
Gilda Crochet Belt - $12
Leather pants
BB Dakota Geary Taupe Leather Pants - $140
Military style
Not-So-Drab Army Jacket by Aryn K - $99

I love the army jacket! And if I could cram my fat a** into the leather pants, I would so rock those. :)

Five minutes before reading this, I was searching for grey oxfords -- if that pair didn't have heels, I'd snatch them up right now (I'm terribly clumsy)!
