Fashion Friday ya’llllllll. Today the main focus is one dress – bought for $12.50 at a vintage store (can’t even make out the label anymore) – worn 3 different ways.
First up, pleather vest with flat boots.
I believe the vest cost $19.99 at Lucky 21, East Harlem’s impostor Forever 21. Sounds charming, doesn’t it? The store is definitely “ghetto”, but I make it my mission to walk into those stores and leave with something AWESOME. Way back when, before Necessary Clothing was even trendy, I used to frequent it for that exact reason. The hunt is half the fun! Anyway, the boots are Lucky Brand and I LOVE THEM. Bought them last year off Haute Look, and I’ve lived in them ever since.
Ahh, just overlooking the projects. What a life I lead, I tell ya.
For Look 2, we introduce the cargo shirt/jacket..however you want to wear it. I bought this shirt about two years ago, when I was beyond broke in college and went to Zara with $50 thinking “What ONE piece do I want to buy that will make me feel cool every damn time I wear it?” This was it. The shoulder detailing (which has since shown up on everything) and the easy-going feeling of cuffs is what got me.
Booties are from Payless for a whopping $50.
You see me, Hi Hata. (slang for hater, all you non-rap listeners out there)
Lastly, look 3. This pretty little thing can do bad all by itself. Also, HELLO indoor lighting. What a blessing it is compared to the harsh, gray afternoon light.
P.S Ashliey – The apt is showcased again, hope you don’t mind
And there ya have it, this week’s BOAB. Once you find your personal style, labels don’t matter
