DIY Styling: Torrid Opening

Hey "DoItYourself" Divas,
I just want to share with you ladies an ootd I had over the weekend. This ootd was a DIY styling from head to toe. I made a crop top out of an old see-thru floral shirt that I hardly ever wore and added a little pizazz to a pair of thirfted jeans by cut up one leg. DIY projects are so much fun and easy to do, and also shows off your personal creativity. I wore this outfit to the grand opening of a Torrid store in my area. I'm so glad they opened a Torrid in the RDU area because the closet one was and hour away. At the opening the first 50 people received a gift card. Yes, I received a $10 gift card but I gave it to one of my good friends so she can could combine it with her $50 gift card. We know Torrid is a little pricey, but she was able to get two good quality items that she could wear to her new job. I really enjoyed this DIY styling because I created a new looks with old pieces.

More Thrifting!!!!

Hey Frugalistas,
I love thrifting!!!! When I go out on my thrift store, consignment shop, and vintage hunt I usually try to go for unique pieces. You can always put your personal twist on these second-hand items, and they can definitely be a bag for your buck. The other day I went to see what my local thrift stores had to offer. I found some pretty cool pieces that when you add your personal style they can be masterpieces.

If your interested in purchasing any of these pieces or any pieces from "Thrifting At It's Finest" post just contact me at dasani2204@gmail.com. I'll be more than willing to resale these pieces. Thank you for reading comment and join this page, and also stay tuned for the next STYLE STORY!!!!

Slight Fun In A Little Sun....

Hey Beach Barbs,
I wanted to give a quick overview of my Carpe Diem trip to Wilmington, NC over the weekend. During this trip I was planning on taking more pictures of me styling beachwear but with the indecisive weather it made it kind of difficult. I did enjoy myself to the best of my ability with all the mishaps that might have occurred. I was able to hang out with the two livest teens in the world, they truly kept my spirits up. And also attended a bike party, which turn out to be a blast. Might not be much but here's some highlighted moments I was able to capture.

Rich Hipster

Hey Groovy Dolls,
So today I'm coming to you because I absolutely love Chrisette Michele new album "Better". She an amazing women and her music is off the charts. There was a song on her album named "Rich Hipster" feat. Wale that I so fell in love with as soon as it hit my ears. So this style story is in ode to this wonderful woman. All of us ladies have and hipster/ flower power side. Just wanting to be free, tranquil, and ready to have a good time. With this styling I paired a royal blue romper with a white woven vest and added a butterfly belt to accentuate my waist. Adding the woven vest gives you the coverage on your chest and back since it is a strapless romper. With the small details of fringe on the vest and a butterfly on the belt puts you in the mindset of a free-spirited diva. For the footwear I would probaly wear a black sandal or black heel to convert this outfit from day to night. I'm loving every bit of this chic and classy outfit as well as Chrisette Michele's new album which has made it to my top 5. Please go check it out and stay tuned for another STYLE STORY...

Going Pogo for Polka Dots...

Hey Fashion Dolls,
I wanted to come quickly and give my style story from my "too turnt up" weekend. A couple of my friends and I went to Still Life-a club in downtown Raleigh to celebrate my hunni bun's Shyniece Martin birthday. I was super excited because I was able to style one of the pieces I had purchased from thrifting versus going out and buying something new. I did a play up on polka dots/circles by pairing my black circle earring with my colorful polka dotted blouse. Using the blouse as the main focus I kept everything else black and simple. And of course ladies, you can never go wrong with black or peplum using both to conceal any flaws you might have in your mid section. If you loved this pairing please stay tuned for my next STYLE STORY "Rich Hipster"....

Thrifting at it's Finest....

Hey Thrifty Divas,
One of my motto's of this year is Carpe Diem, which of course we know it means to "Seize the Day". So with that being said yesterday I took a little Carpe Diem trip and found myself in Charlotte, NC. I went with one of my close friends for a graduation. It wasn't too bad of a drive round about 3hrs from Raleigh, where I live. The graduation was nice but what was even NICER was I came across a Goodwill Outlet. And when i say outlet, I mean that it truly was. It was huge clothes everywhere, people everywhere I almost felt like I walked into a thrifters heaven - lls. The best thing about this Goodwill was the fact that they weighed the clothes by pounds ($1.39 per lbs), and not by each garment. So I jumped in with everyone else and started to dig for some pieces. There was so many bins of clothes I know I only scratched the surface, but i did leave with four nice pieces, which only came up to $6.00.... WHAT!!!!!!! I'm telling you a real bang for my buck. I love to shop and splurge here or there but when I find a bargain I just can't past it up. And $6.00 to me is way beyond a bargain. The experience was nice and I had blast and defiantly will be going back very soon. I can't wait to style these pieces up for you divas to show that you can be just has fashionable on a budget. So Divas, stay Frugal and Fashionable...and stay tuned for more STYLE STORIES....
