Beauty Buzz: Beach Tousled Waves

Do you want those beach tousled waves without going to the beach? This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s a simple style and it’s the classic “California Girl” look.

Most of us dream of carrying a hot designer bag on our arm. But, what if you can’t afford one? I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford those high priced beauties.

Now, that’s a “Bank Breaker!” Scroll down to find out where the “Bargain” bag comes from.The “Bargain” bag is the Audrey Leatherette bag from Forever 21 and costs a whopping $22.80.

OOTD: Back to Basics

If there is one thing I love about shopping, it’s getting more bang for my buck. By this, I mean buying a lot of basics that I can rework into other outfits. I love this gray vest and simple black cotton dress. They can be worn with many different pieces that already exist in my bargainista wardrobe. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them. This entire outfit cost around $30. Yay bargains!! How many versatile pieces do you have in your closet?Vest: MarshallsDress: RossShoes: TargetNecklace: Kohls

OOTD: Simple LBD

Please excuse the cheesy pic. I had to take this photo after our night out in Hollywood. My hubby the photographer was not available. So, it’s a good ol’ self-portrait. I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted to wear this night, but it just didn’t pan out. Don’t you just hate that! I decided on a very simple outfit with a little black dress. I try not to over-accessorize. You know that’s my pet peeve. We had a great time and I survived these pumps.

Blogger Q&A: Chastity
