Target Shopping Haul

I wanted to thank all my loves on instagram and on my blog.

You are the reason I finally had a shopping haul that wasn’t from a thrift store.

So I wanted to share with you all the things I got!

Styling: H&M Polka Dot Sleeveless Blouse

I almost didn’t buy my H&M sleeveless top considering I am a little self-conscious about my arms.

But it was only $15, and my man gently reminded me how many ways I could style it for only $15 dollars.

He was right-

I may not have been excited about the piece,

but it was definitely an investment piece!

Women in Suits

When I was walking into the office world thoughts of boring button ups and suits came to mind.

BLAH. ICK. BooooRING!

But a good styled fitted suit can be really sexy on a woman.

A powerful in command kind of beauty.

Thrifty Thursday part 1

PicsArt_1408022467421[1]

Have you ever gone into a retail store catered to work attire?

Once you shift through the sea of mostly black items… you find a piece you like.

And experience a little tag shock.

The price of one work outfit, can usually buy me two casual day outfits.

That’s why I’ve taken to buying work attire either at retail stores that have a work attire section

(often the prices aren’t as expensive in specialized shops)

or I make a trip to my favourite goodwill location πŸ™‚

My best find ever was a pant suit with the tags still on it.

Originally priced at $150.00 plus tax.

I paid $50 – the most I’ve ever spent on a thrift store item.

But my man wouldn’t let me pass on the deal…luckily!

It was a Calvin Klein pant suit never been worn at a third of the price.

Here’s the suit.

I paired it with a thrifted bold blue guess shirt $3.00

Tres-sexy.

For my shoes i choose: my open-toed nine west heels $7.00.

Lastly to complete the look- I added my gothy-black necklace $12.00

The jewellery can sometimes be overpriced.

But i couldn’t leave it behind

All together this professional thrifted look cost me $72.00Β 

Compared to what it would cost new:

The suit cost: $150

Guess shirts average between $40-60 ..Check it outΒ Here.

costume jewellery cost average between 25-50 in retail stores roughly.

Nine West Peep Toe Heels: 110-125…Check it outΒ here

So let’s be on the conservative side…totalling: $325

That’s a total savings of $253.

Well Damn.

I didn’t even think I saved that much until I just priced it out…

If you aren’t completely convinced.

July Favourites

Another Month has come and gone.

I hadn’t done any shopping in such a long time with so many recent large purchases in our household.

As such I’ve had to get very creative not to repeat any outfits.

I’m not going to lie- its getting more and more difficult.

A couple times this month I’ve left the house in an outfit I just wasn’t quite happy with.

I guess it was a hit and miss month.

Cause I absolutely adore these July fits.

Can I just say this whole outfit minus the belt and tights are from goodwill. #mindblown

I picked this skirt up in June. I absolutely adore it. It gives my work fits a baby doll feel.

This outfit has my favourite colour combination purple and blue.

Paired with the low bun and curls- I feel like it has a spanish feel.

Especially with the curvy silhouette showcased.

I felt sexy in this outfit!

Professional, cute, and girly- the perfect work fit!

The long curls with the lace and flirty skirt- all scream very girly.

The cherry on top is the peep toe heel.

Which is your favourite?
