My Style Session with Tricia

Posted on 30 July 2013 by frugal-nomics

Wanting to dress for the job she wants rather than the job she has, actress Tricia, reached out to me to clean out her closet and help turn things up a bit on her summer wardrobe within her budget.  So, I took advantage of some summer holiday sales to get her the best bang for her buck — where I saved up to 40% on lots of her items — and stocked up on loads of color, accessories, and bold pieces to mix and match with her current items to create outfits for both work and play.  Have a favorite look? Tell me in the comments below.






OUTFIT 1: Chambray :: her own, pants :: Zara, Shoes :: her own; Outfit 2: Blazer :: Zara, t-shirt:: Zara, Shorts :: her own; Outfit 3 :: her own, necklace :: Zara.




Outfit 4: Peplum top :: Express, Pants :: Express, Necklace :: her own, Shoes :: her own; Outfit 5: Dress :: Zara, Necklace :: Zara, Shoes :: her own; Outfit 6: Blouse :: JCPenney, Skirt :: JCPenney, Shoes :: her own.

Now is a great time to take advantage of summer sales. Want to check out another one of my Style Sessions? Click here.

My Style Session with Tyechia

Posted on 26 April 2013 by frugal-nomics

Recently I shopped for and styled a young lady named Tyechia who wanted to give her wardrobe an update as we head into spring. Like many, she was on a budget.  So we started out thrifting; and then added a few staple pieces like a denim vest, colorful pants, and an animal print top that can all be mixed and matched for endless outfits.  We started with a limit of $150, and though she only requested 5 outfits, I was able to stretch it into 15 (I think that may be a record).  For several of the shots, I grabbed a few of my accessories and some shoes to point her in the right “style” direction visually, to assist in showing her how to get the “look.” Here’s some of what she got!

OUTFIT 1: Blazer :: H&M, White Tank :: Faded Glory, Pants :: Forever21;  OUTFIT 2: Denim Vest :: Rainbow, Printed Top :: Rainbow, Leggings :: Unnecessary Clothing; OUTFIT 3: Animal Print Top :: Zara, Pants :: Forever21

OUTFIT 1: Denim Vest :: Forever21, Dress :: Calvin Klein, OUTFIT 2: Dress :: H&M, OUTFIT 3: Dress :: Forever21
