Everyone secretly dreams of a wardrobe that showcases their mood every day of the year.  Unfortunately, not everyone can adopt Paris Hilton’s approach to fashion: Buying more clothes than you need and discovering that you don’t have enough days in the year to wear them all. Besides, you probably wouldn’t have enough place in your wardrobe to store it all.  As much as one can love clothes, there is indeed such a thing as too many items. There’s also another problem with such an attitude to fashion: It’s far too expensive for anyone to afford. What you want is fashion that you can identify with, but that doesn’t break the bank, fashion that defines your identity without making you look like everyone else, fashion that looks good without being expensive. This is a challenge that you can win if you change your shopping habits. Affordable and original fashion exists; it’s up to you to make it work for your style and your budget.  If you are not willing to compromise your style while on a budget, this post is for you.  (Look out for fashion deals) Shop Smart Items At the beginning of every fashion styling, there’s the need for…

How cheesy is the title of this post?  Oh well, I haven’t uploaded a style post in ages, so this title will do. I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post.  I blame the blizzard and artic conditions that has plagued the East Coast.  Well luckily, before another cold blast hit my area, I was able to take advantage of the semi seasonal temperatures and head outside with my camera.  It was a nice change to ditch my bulky winter coat and wear one of my favorite spring outfit.  This spring look no further than Zara to find all the latest fashion trends.  Hands down, Zara has become one of my favorite retailers because you can find some really unique pieces that embody all the hottest styles.  For example, this blouse I’m wearing doesn’t just feature one trend, but two: star print and ruffles.  Zara makes it super easy to stay in style. So more about my top. I feel like lately, you can’t walk into a store without seeing the star print somewhere.  Remember my post a few months ago that also featured this print?  If not check it out here.  As for the ruffle…

It’s that time of year again where I wake up every morning, look through my closet and realize how unsatisfied I am with my clothes.  All that jumps out is my overly worn sweaters, long sleeve blouses, scarves, and all those other winter fashion essentials.  Not only is my wardrobe uninspiring, but also every time I walk outside, I am met with a barren landscape.  I am counting down the days to when I wake up to the birds chirping outside, the grass turning greener, and the trees and flowers starting to bloom. Until then, I can only turn to online shopping to get me excited for the warm spring weather ahead and stay up-to-date on what is trending for the spring.  One online and also brick and mortar store that has been satisfying all my spring fashion needs is Century 21 Department Store.  Whether online or visiting one of their locations in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Florida, you will find designer brands at affordable prices.  Century 21 is the perfect place to shop fashionable women, men, and children’s apparel, as well as home décor and beauty products.  Of course, when I had the chance to browse Century…

It’s not hard to tell from my three back-to-back denim related posts, that lately I’m obsessing over all things denim. Sarcasm aside denim is a major staple in any wardrobe. Today I’m not focusing on jeans or a denim dress but an oversized vintage denim jacket to which I added my own personal style. Overall, this outfit just makes me feel cool. I’m convinced it is the jean jacket because it is not an ordinary denim jacket but a denim jacket with a variety of patches. I discovered that iron on patches were a huge trend in the 80s. Pretty much anywhere there was space on your favorite shirt, jacket, or jeans, you could put a patch on it. The 80s must have been a fun decade but I hardly remember it (haha just kidding, 90s baby right here). Fashion is all about bringing past trends back so I proudly wear my patched up denim jacket.          My denim jacket is from Brag Vintage, a UK based vintage clothing store selling the highest quality vintage and retro women and men’s clothing and accessories. They are constantly updating their collection, so every week you can find a new and unique treasure waiting…

Denim. According to Webster’s dictionary, denim is defined as a “strong usually blue cotton cloth that is used especially to make jeans.” Skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, flared jeans, jean jackets, jean shorts, denim skirts, jean shirts, and so on. It would be hard to imagine the world without denim or our favorite pair of jeans (you know ladies that pair you have in your dresser that’s your go to and make you feel confident and have people staring). When I was thinking of a post to write I wanted to put away my camera and focus on some fashion history because after all, fashion history is my favorite kind of history. I thought there had to be something cool that happened today and thanks to Google I learned that on this day, June 6, 1850 fashion designer Levi Strauss made his first pair of blue jeans. It’s mind blowing to learn that blue jeans have been around for over 150 years. Not only is Levi Strauss responsible for the birth of blue jeans, he also founded Levi Strauss & Co., the first company to manufacture blue jeans. Over the years Levi Strauss & Co. has become one of the most…
