You ladies know I love a good fashion bargain and there is nothing like our fashion discount TJ Maxx!
I have been on the hunt for a faux leather skirt for a while. I wanted one that would hold up and fit my shape just right.
While I was looking for items for my clients wardrobe, I happen to stumble upon two items to add to my wardrobe.
The first is a gorgeous, laced blouse, and the second is a sleek, black, faux leather skirt made by Maxx Studio.
Check out how I mixed and matched my fun new skirt and how I took my blouse from dressy to casual.
Hey ladies. It’s Laura here and I’m super excited about being back and doing a little video blogging. I know it’s been a while but we’ve had a busy month.
We’ve had fall festivities and fall parties and football and all that fun stuff for the month of October. I know November and December are going to be just as busy, so if you can bare with me I’m going to try and keep you posted on all my fun fall fashion finds and beauty bargains.
With that said, this past month I had three new clients and I blogged about it a little bit so you can read about it on my blog. They were all wonderful. I’m loving the texts that all of them are sending me right now and I love their new styles. I’m so excited that they’re happy also.
With that said, if you ever want to book an appointment with me, you can call me or email me, or message me through facebook or just even my blog. I thank Amy and I want to thank Traci and I want to thank Mary Abigail. Y’all are so sweet and not only do I have three new clients I have three wonderful new friends. And I’m very blessed by that.
Shopping for my sweet new clients and I’ve been out to TJ Maxx a lot lately and I’ve been to Marshall’s. I have personally been trying to find a faux leather skirt because that is something that you can kind of dress up and down, especially during the holidays. I love a faux leather skirt and I found one at TJ Maxx and I was super excited about it. It’s a Maxx Studio skirt and it’s form fitted.
If you can see it, I’ll kind of turn it around. Has a little slit in the back and it was originally $98 and I got it for $29.99, which I thought was awesome ladies. When I was looking I wanted something that I could dress it up with in case I have some fun holiday events coming up.
I found this really really cool gold laced blouse. It’s short sleeves and of course you could wear a little tank underneath it. I figured this would really dress it up.
But, like I said with this blouse you can dress down too with a fun pair of jeans, some fun heels or boots. And the same with this black skirt. You could put a fun little turtleneck on it, dress it up with some jewelry and dress it down or wear it to work or to church or wherever you may go.
That’s a great thing about staple pieces like this. It’s good to find these pieces, and like I said I told you the price. I got this for $14.99, this little blouse. You can find staple pieces like this and incorporate them in your wardrobe and really mix and match when it comes to dressing things up and down.
I will do another video, I just wanted to show you what I found of the whole outfit together. And I will show you how I dress it up.
I hope you ladies enjoy it. I’m so sorry I’ve been away. I hope you enjoyed this video, I hope you get some great fashion tips and like I said, if you want to book an appointment with me please call me. I know the holidays are coming up and we get busy and there’s a lot of people taking vacations.
I can help you get in that closet, get it organized, clean out things and find your style, find the style that works best for you and your body type. Remember that ladies. It’s fun. It’s a great time to get together with the girls and I think you would really enjoy it.
Anyway, just read my latest blog post in regards to my clients. I had a great time. Thanks again ladies and I hope you enjoyed my outfit I put together.
Hey ladies. This is my beauty bargain outfit that I mentioned in my last video. I love it.
It’s a faux leather skirt that I’ve been looking for for awhile. I found it at TJ Maxx. And this is my metallic laced blouse that I found at TJ Maxx as well.
I incorporated a fun silver clutch with it because you can combine your golds and your silvers when you have it in your blouse or your necklaces or your earrings.
There’s nothing wrong with that ladies. Don’t be afraid to do that.
I wanted to change the shoes out occasionally and add a fun printed shoe like I have here, an ankle boot. Or you can keep it simple and add just a black boot. Or you can keep your color in like I have here with my cobalt blue velvet heels with a zipper on the side. It kind of gives it an edgy look.
Anyway, I love this outfit, I think it’s fun. I think anybody can pull this off.
Hope you enjoy it and I hope to see you ladies soon. Sorry it’s been so long on my blog posts. Hope to see you soon.
A Few More Styling Ideas
We all know I love color, and what a better way to stay on trend then adding a dose of purple, like I did in this picture with my tights and heels.
You can add any bright color to a basic black dress or another stand out color.
Example: Think of the color wheel. Fuchsia is a great stand out color with purple.
You can also mix in your bright tights, with fun prints, that have small amounts of your favorite color tight in the skirt or dress.
Also, remember, less is more: simple dress, simple shoes and bold tights.
Don’t forget a print
I always say if you are not willing to go bold with your color then try a fun print. (I love my printed ankle zebra boots in the pic below)
And here is how I made my metallic lace blouse casual. Just by adding a fitted jean and a riding boot can take this dressy little number from chic to sassy!
OK, don’t forget about my tip when it comes to fitted jeans, leggings or pants.
Loose at the top, fitted at the bottom.
You want to balance your body out to give an even proportion. Adding a heel or light boot helps with this too.
And here’s what it’s like when you blog at night. I have a little fella who loves his mommy sooooo much that he wants to get in pics from time to time.
I figured you ladies wouldn’t mind. Besides, I guess it kind of gives you an idea of how casual this outfit can be with a kid and his duck in tow…HA!
