FASHION FRIDAY THRIFT STORE EDITION!

Last week I stated on my IG story that I would challenge myself to go thrifting and find two outfits to post for Fashion Friday. If you wanna see what I purchased click the link ——-> https://youtu.be/Kgqficn41jI to watch.

I want everyone to know that it’s not where you shop, it’s how you style your pieces. If you pick basic pieces you’ll be able to style it with different items from your closet. You should pick items you can pair more than once, that’s the key.

All the clothing was purchased from the thrift store which totaled up to $25 dollars. The shirt (robe) was $4.99, jeans was $7, bag was $4.99 and the necklace was $8.

 Here are some easy thrift store tips to follow when you go thrifting.

1.Write a list of the things you are looking for before you go shopping.

2. Go Early when you have energy to sift through things.

3. Wear clothing that is easy to remove so you can try the items on.

4. Never be afraid to shop in the Mens section. I find a lot of jeans and graphic tees in that section.

5. Try to look for items that are in style now. But, most importantly look for staple pieces that can be worn multiple ways .

6. Make sure you wash all items before you wear them.

7. Oh yea and Have Fun!

I hope my tips make it easier for you to go thrifting if you haven’t gone before. Happy thrifting guys.

XO,

THE blues

This title basically sums up how I’ve been feeling this week. It has been very overwhelming. It’s crazy how another person’s life who you have never met can have an effect on you. It just makes us think if we are doing enough with our own lifes. It makes us question if one day will we influence others? Will people speak of all the awesome things we did and How great a human we were? We are all here for a reason. I know that some people find their purpose in life faster than others. It should be our mission to find it. God gives everyone a purpose in life. We are here to seek God, find our meaning and work at completing his will.

After I lost my brother, I told myself I would do the things I wanted. I had nothing to lose but everything to gain. We have a tendency to think our dreams are so big when God’s vision for us is way bigger. I can only respect Nipsey’s hustle and strive to do God’s work. We all have our own marathon to run, he ran his and his influence has left its mark here on earth forever. May this be a reminder of the greatness God sees in us and all he asks is for us to do the work.

CAMO JUMPSUIT

Hey Guys, this look is a partial D.I.Y . I purchased this jumpsuit from a cheap website. When I received it the bottom part had wide legs. It didn’t look good with any shoe. I even tried different styles rolling them up, making them into shorts etc. It just wasn’t working out so I never wore them.

I told my mom I needed her to help me out on a project. She has basic sewing skills I don’t, but I’m good with my hands and a visual person. I cut the jumpsuit the way it should’ve been done in the first place. I wanted the legs to be tapered, so I cut the excess material away, free hand, and my mom sewed them back together. Now look wah lah magic, a whole look.

Leopard and Lace!!

Hey Guys, Im back with another Fashion Friday post. I love the edginess of this lace shirt/dress. It can be worn both ways, but today I’m wearing it as a shirt. I paired it with these orange pants because I thought it complimented the leopard coat nicely. I added the blue hat to break up the color of the bottoms. It’s all about balance, plus blue is the new black. It goes with everything. Give me a flame emoji in the comments below if your feeling this look.

FASHION FRIDAY!!

BLACK WITH A POP OF RED!

Hey y’all, I’m back with Fashion Fridays. I’m sorry, I’ve been missing in action. I’ve made the necessary steps to be more consistent. Juggling a full-time job and preparing content on the side can be tough. I love it, so I will continue to do it. Also, I’m happy to announce that I’ll be bringing back Tip Tuesday on my instagram stories so If you aren’t following me please do so here http://www.instagram.com/ashleynicoleb .

I paired a fringe skirt with this tee for a more casual look. I added the trench coat, knee high socks and combat boots for an edgy feel . The sunglasses and earrings gave me a pop of color which brings the outfit out. The book bag has pearl details on it and gives the wardrobe the finished touch I was looking for.

I purchased this skirt from Zara last year. It was $49.90 I know it was a lot . It’s crazy because a couple months later it went on sale. Talk about mad the lowest sale price was around $20 dollars, maybe less than that.
I scored this coat for $10 dollars at H&M around Christmas time a couple years ago. Can you say winning? Yes, Winning!

I also snagged this tee from the goodwill for about $5. The knee high socks was $3 dollars at H&M. The boots were $19.99 from JustFab.

fashion friday
Everything I’m wearing was on sale except for the skirt and bag. It doesn’t matter how much you spend on your clothing. It’s how you put the pieces together. I’m always looking for a good bargain. Why pay full price when you can buy it on sale? Tip: Always shop sale first, then go to the regular priced items.
