Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Oversized

Ray-Ban_Macys_Old Navy_Charles David_coverI love SOWA Sundays. Sadly, I’ve only been three times this year; the third being this past Sunday. Kayte (Mass Musings) was hosting an event at the SOWA Vintage Market: mimosas, treats and vintage? I was so there. This was the first time I actually took the time to browse the different vintage stalls. The jewelry, clothes, furniture and knick knacks were all gorgeous and interesting. I always wonder what the story is behind each piece. Who did it once belong to and how did it end up here? Kayte handed me the task of styling a mannequin and I gladly obliged. I rifled through the racks and settled on a green dress that had this beautiful foiled all over pattern, topped it with a fur stole and a silver necklace with acorn charms! I would have nabbed the dress, but unfortunately it didn’t fit. I was somewhat relieved, since I really shouldn’t be shelling out any money at this point. And what blogger get together would be complete without a photo shoot? Elissa (Style Wire) and I snuck outside for a few minutes and snapped a few pics.

Geo Jacquard & Tights

Blue Lemon Paris_Banana Republic_Rebecca Minkoff_Kohls_Arturo Chiang_cover (2)Dress shirt. Skirt. Pumps. Three easy ingredients to get that profesh office look. And one can never go wrong with the classic black and white combo. Now that it’s Fall, I can finally break into my tights stash. Word to the wise. Tights are an easy way to add print, texture or color to your daily work wardrobe. Oh, and that bag? Yes, it’s new! A bday gift to myself. Dont’ mind if I do. It’s perfect in size and is one of the quintessential hues of Fall.

Trendy + Shake Event Recap

Boston Bloggers (5)Thank you to those who joined me last Monday at Shake The Tree! It’s always a good time getting to catch up with a group of gal pals. Amongst the chatter, we squeezed in some shopping while sipping autumn sangria. I know some of the party-goers were skeptical of the healthy snacks provided by Food & Figure but after one bite, we could not stop. My fave was the maple spiced squash (who’s with me?). I confess, I probably had 10 rings! I didn’t get a chance to jump into the massage chair (compliments of Bodywaves Boston), but a few of the ladies seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed it. Just ask Emily and Katherine! If you ever have a chance to pop into the store, it’s definitely worth it! See anything you like in the photos? Just give Shake a ring for availability!

Panes & Stripes

Splendid_JCrew_Bobbles & Lace_James Jeans_Loeffler Randall_Coach_coverAs it goes every week, when the weekend approaches, I engage in the small talk about what’s going on that weekend. This last time, whenever asked, I would emphatically respond “Going to the Bloomie’s F&F Event!” I’d get a bit of a blank stare, as if they were waiting for more. But that was all I got. Anytime the mister tried to make plans for Sunday, I would tell him I could not commit because I’d be at Bloomie’s. To which he replied “all day?” I shrugged my shoulders because really, I could spend a good chunk of my day there. I always go with my shopping buddy, Jenna. We have a checks and balance system in place, making sure every purchase is worth it. Entering our shopping trip, I always give myself a budget. If not, my spending could get out of hand! I am Trendy On A Budget, after all…
