I Want to Make You Feel How I feel When Listening To Love Songs

I’m trying hard to make you love me
but I don’t wanna try too hard
And I’m trying hard to make it lively but I’m here now

A quick little outfit post; Work has been crazy, trying to keep up with NYFW has been nuts, and preparing for some big projects is more on my plate. Oh, and the omnipresent home updates and planning to get a dog. Coming home at the end of a long day to a glass of wine and my perfect man makes it all worth it; the literal four walls holding up our abode that we’ve been working so hard to make our nest.

Crop top c/o The Girl That Loves
TopShop collar
skirt c/o Persun Mall
thrifted booties
vintage hair bow

Those four walls now are the only place where I can breathe out
Those four walls now are home
Those three words now are the only thing that can save me
Those three words now are home

I can hear you in the overtones

Just an echo of the promise we made
Change the future, we can travel time
Or make us blind so we can never look back

Take My Hand and Come Along With Me

We’ve got nowhere to be
Don’t think twice, and put your mind at ease
Let’s play make believe

Cute outfit post, inspired by the impending Valentine’s Day. My beau and I will enjoy it in full relaxation mode, with Domino’s Pizza and a movie on NetFlix, safe from the kitschy and possibly dreary restaurant and bar scene. Honestly, there’s no ther way I’d want to spend it.

How will you be spending your VDay!?

Hump Day Dupes

Back in October (has it really been that long!?) I introduced you all to a fun little side project of mine, UnderEmployed Fashionistas. I also shared with you one of my favorite weekly features, the Hump Day Dupes! Today, I’m sharing more of these as a cross post. I’d also like to say that if you’re interested in budget living, and/or music, we’re looking for more writers and contributors to help push the website into grander success! Shoot me an email at Sahra@underemployedfashionistas.com if you’re interested in joining!

On to the dupes…

lvWho doesn’t remember the iconic oversized checks of the Louis Vuitton runway, the coveted final collection of Marc Jacobs!? With gargantuan prints still being in style you can’t go wrong with this style steal. Romwe’s version is $24.99; compare that to the bank-breaking $2,500 price tag of the real deal.
fish bone backWith Fashion Weeks around the corner, our sartorial wheels are spinning as fashionistas everywhere look for the coolest, most unique inspirations. This jacket is a cult favorite; Christine Centenera of Harpers Bazaar Australia in a $1,995 Dion Lee jacket. What a pretty price, eh? For us budget inclined divas, Get The Look offers up this admitted dupe for $99. Still out of your price range? TARI DC (a local upscale thrift store, that SHIPS) has a version for $88!
mini mac vsThe Rebecca Minkoff Mini-Mac is one of the most covetable handbags of our generation. It’s been seen on bloggers, celebrities, and friends alike. But with a $200 price tag, even the occasional luck of finding one at TJ Maxx still puts it at $100 or more. Charlotte Russe is to the rescue though, with their very clear dupe at, wait for it….only $15! The leather, or lack there of, won’t be as buttery, but the aesthetic is there without breaking that new 2014 savings bank!
givenchy vsWhile us here on the Eastern Coast can’t even FATHOM the thought of sandals right now, these dupes are too good to wait until spring for. Compared to the Givenchy price tag of nearly $700, these Alloy pumps are higher and cheaper, by a long shot. At just under $30, these pumps are fabulous and fierce, and financially reasonable!
hermes beltThe Hermes monogram belt has been an iconic clean piece of the wealthy wardrobe for years. The real deal costs up to $600, even in the $300 range on Ebay. Why not take the thrifty approach and add a perfect dupe of an initial to an old (or new) belt for only $28? C. Wonder will supply the buckle, you do the rest!
burb sweatshirt
Starting off with another piece from one of the most coveted Fall/Winter 2013 collections. Burberry’s now iconic heart print is also available in sweatshirt form, with a price tag of…$1,295. For us thrifty fashionistas, Choies has a dupe for only $28.99! It may not be the silk blended v-neck, but it will surely still be warm and chic!

Don’t Be Scared That it’s a Harder Kind of Feel

Hold on tight, You must hold on unless you’re in it
Ease your mind, And when you think, you’re thinking clear _MG_6966_MG_7005_MG_7016_post_MG_7009 _MG_7017_MG_6961So when I first found this Burberry dupe shirt on PersunMall, I knew it was love. I mean, it’s no basking heaven of the real deal, but it was close enough for my budget strapped wallet! Since it arrived on fateful Saturday I’ve worn it with a number of wardrobe combinations, many of which are black and leather-like. Today’s pairing was of the more “flirty” variety, mixing the iconic print with a BCBG skirt and the perfect thrifted bag from TARI. Classic look, would be perfect for a date, no? And can you believe the shirt is only $17.99!? Get it here! _MG_6963

I Thought Maybe We Could Save Ourselves

Coming up slow
We’re falling quickly_MG_6040A perfect fall fashion combination; mixing a little bit of conservative class (Brooks Brothers blouse) with an edgy sweater (Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s), a classic watch (Michael Kors), and a little bit of glam (Persun Mall necklace). The purple hues contrast the warm tones of the changing leaves around my home.

Wednesday Wishlist: Currently Coveting For Novemburrr

Hello lovely followers! I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping/browsing lately, which has created a lot of “want” within me, so I figured I’d share with you all the styles I’m currently coveting to update my closet for the impending colder temps and family holidays!

nov

1. Flamingo Print Blouse because I LOVE flamingos, duh. And the sheer fabric poses the potential for my own flamingo (tattoo) to make a subtle appearance.

2.  Leatherette pants are edgy, practical, sexy, and warm…perfect for versatility!

3. Nicole Black Gold booties would go famously with those jeans, or any holiday look for some pizazz on the toes!

4. This Givenchy Inspired Sweater is too cool-slash-edgy to pass up!

5. I’m so excited for the window pane print to hit full swing come spring, but also LOVE that it’s popping up for the current season!

6. This Celine inspired fur trim bag is TO DIE FOR, and in an on-trend cobalt blue? BE MINE ALREADY.

7. 7 For All Mankind Jeans; the baroque print is festive and on-trend for a classy date night or holiday dinner.

What are YOU currently coveting for this month!?

Step Into The Fire Feeling Hotter Than The Truth

I can feel the heat but I’m not burning
Feeling desire, feel the tired …
Feels like I’m falling20131101-195702.jpg

Another look featuring more of the items I purchased in my 24 hour cat phase; a lovely skirt chosen from Persun Mall (where I also chose the kitschy romantic bracelet). I tried to make this look a downtown meets office vibe; slouchy boots and socks contrasted with a structured blazer and a flirty skirt, alongside my edgy aesthetic. It’s definitely my current fave, and I’ve recently shared it on IFB’s weekly list! 20131101-200144.jpg20131101-195741.jpg20131101-195824.jpg20131101-195900.jpg
