Another Outfit Under $30!

      Hello there!  Today is Make an Outfit Monday!! Yay!  Okay, so since I love creating really inexpensive outfits ((I’m talking negative $30!!)), I think I’ll make another one today!  This outfit is defiantly super cute and perfect for school!
 
Top… Charlotte Russe… $2.99
Lightweight Pocket Tee
To start off our outfit, we have a simple pocket tee from Charlotte Russe.  It’s simple, loose, and will look awesome with our next item!
 
Skirt… Forever 21… $9.50
I love, love, LOVE this skirt!  It will be perfect for back to school because it gives a summery vibe even though your stuck sitting in class!
 
Shoes… Forever 21… $12.80
So to make the skirt a little more appropriate for fall, I’ve added some cute flats into the mix.  Loving the adorable details — Yay for bows with rhinestones!!
 
Accessories… Forever 21… $3.80
WOW!  We still have money for accessories!  This long, owl necklace would sparkle beautifully against the black top… and it’s sure to be a “hoot” around school!  ((Loving my little pun there, hehe))
And for the grand total… $2.99 + $9.50 + $12.80 +3.80 = $29.09
 
     Would you look at that!! An entire outfit PLUS accessories for under $30!  Mission accomplished.  This outfit has a little bit of fall and summer and is über comfy… not to mention adorable!  If you want to see my other outfit for under $30 check out this link! https://thestylefiles101.wordpress.com/2010/08/10/check-this-out-an-entire-outfit-for-under-30/

Back-to-School Wishlist

Hey there everybody!  Since today is So Random Sunday, I’m going to tell you all about my back-to-school wish list.  Okay, so I really have not done much school shopping… I don’t even have a fab first day outfit!!  So I’m going to have to go to the mall sometime this week…  Here’s an idea of some of the stuff I really want!

      So first, I really want a pair of mid-length shorts because my school has a strict dress code where the shorts must reach the end of your fingertips.  For people like me with really long arms, it’s so hard to find shorts that I can wear!  I’m hoping to catch some mid-length shorts on clearance for cheap!

These are on clearance at American Eagle for $39.95. Love them because they have the military vibe going which is super hot this season!

      Next, I want to get myself a pair of jeggings.  I mean they are basically the biggest craze right now… so I’ll have to try them.  I’ll defiantly need to try them on to make sure they look okay, though…

I really like these from Forever 21.  They are only $14.50.  I love how they are a classic color so they’ll look great with anything!

       The next thing I really want is a good, skinny belt.  I’ll use my skinny belt to cinch tops at the waist… I think it looks super cute and can make any old shirt look brand new again!

This belt from Delia’s is only $9.99.  The classic color will go with anything and everything!  I like how small it is, so it won’t overwhelm any outfit.
     
    Now on to shoes… I could really use a pair of new flats!  I am loving these in particular:
These are on sale for $99.95 at Anthropologie and I love, love, LOVE them!  I really want a pair of peep-toes because I don’t have any and I love the colors and pattern!  The only problem with them is that they won’t match that many outfits… so maybe if I see something like these for cheap, then I’ll get them.
 
     I could also grab some boots that would be perfect for fall!
I love these boots from Forever 21.  And at only $22.80 they wound break the budget!  I think that they are the perfect height and the perfect color to match everything!!
 
    I also need a new school bag!!  I’m kind of unsure of what I want… Again, pretty please post ideas below…  Here’s my idea:
Vintage Tote
I’m not sure how big this bag is… I need a very big bag for all my stuff!  But I love this bag!! It’s only $13.93 from Abercrombie.  I love the olive stripes because olive is such a hot color this fall!  Olive is a great color because it’s neutral and will look good with almost anything!  It will be able to carry me from fall to the end of school which wold be awesome!!
 
Okay, so now I really need a shirt to wear on the first day!  I don’t know exactly what I want… so if anyone has any ideas please post a comment below!!!
 
Well, there’s my wish list!!  I’ll report back to you all after I go and give you the lowdown on what I actually buy!

Update your wardrobe for FREE!

Good afternoon my fellow friends!  Today I’m going to give you a couple of ideas on how to update your wardrobe for fall 2010.  As you all know… school is coming up!  That means back-to-school shopping! Woooo!  Of course, it’s certainly not practical or economically possible to buy a whole new wardrobe… so here are 5 tips on how to make an (almost) brand new wardrobe at little or no cost!

1. ADD A BELT!

Adding a belt on the waist it an easy way to add a different look to any top.  You could pop a belt over a simple v-neck or too a sundress.  I am in love with this belt from Forever 21 because it’s only $2.50!  (Yes I’ve used it in a bunch of other posts…)

2.SWAP THE COLOR!

Instantly change the color of any top, bottom, or sweater with some cheap fabric dye from basically any store (Wal-Mart, A.C. Moore, Target…)  Try to get some dyes in hot fall colors like gold, olive, violet, or mahogany.

Purple

This pretty purple Tulip dye is $2.99 at ILovetoCreate.com.

3.CUFF ‘EM UP!

Give your jeans, shorts, and pants a new look by rolling them up!  Grab a cardigan and roll up the sleeves a little for a warm fall day.  You could roll up skinny jeans twice so they fall right above your ankle… So cute!

4.DIY IT UP!

So I have this tunic top with lace at the bottom… I never really liked the lace so I re-invented my shirt by chopping the lace off!  Now it’s a cropped top… Love it!  You can re-invent any top by cutting off the sleeves… Or maybe cut and old dress into a shirt!  Also, you could sew on some embellishments like buttons or flowers…

5.MIX AND MATCH OUTFITS!

Some people (me included!!) tend to wear the same outfits all the time!  It’s time to go through your closet and mix and match clothes that you never have before!  Example… Always wear the ruffled cardigan with the khaki shorts and flats??  How about wearing that cardi with some jeggings and ankle boots!?!  Stuff like that can make any old shirt feel new again!

So there are some tips on how to jazz up your wardrobe for free!  I’ll be sure to add any more that I think off!
