Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

My new gig and a great pair of sexy boots

 I’ve been up to something in the last few weeks and I’m now ready to share it with you. I’m never happy unless I’m wearing at least 2 or 3 hats and my latest gig makes about  4.

I’ve been asked to write Lansing’s budget fashion column and well I just couldn’t turn it down. It’s done under my legal name- kind of essential if I want to get paid.   Check it out here   I’d welcome your ideas for future articles.

Hear we go into a new season with the same old wardrobe that looks a little tired. If only there was a way to wake up your closet without costing a fortune. It’s time for a secret weapon to give that Plain Jane outfit a little attitude. Every wardrobe needs the perfect pair of sexy boots for a punch of confidence. It’s the ultimate accessory to spice up your favorite pair of jeans or add a kick to that sweater dress hanging at the back of your closet. A great pair of boots won’t cost you an arm and a leg if you know where to shop. Forever 21 has a plethora of sexy styles in a number of chic finishes. You can choose from a great little number like the Addiction ankle boot with great sex appeal or the Madrid riding boot. Forever 21 will deliver great style for around thirty dollars. At these fabulous prices you may want to take home more than one pair. So bring the magic to your wardrobe by making a visit to Eastwood Towne Center’s Forever 21 or shop on-line at Forever21.com

Chic Geek

img_2446With the change in season comes a change in wardrobe. That’s when my inner Shopping Goddess rears her ugly head. She is a complete Diva and refuses to settle for what’s on sale. There are alot of great deals out there on very wearable items. This Diva turns up her nose on what everyone else is wearing and insists on her own style.

Well I have news for her. This girls on a budget and needs a compromise. So instead of a cyber trip to Anthropologie  for a $108.00 beach hat, we went to Target and got this…..

This simple hat is perfect for the beach and cost less than $10.00 on sale of course. Well I’m afraid that no self-respecting Goddess would be caught dead in something as generic as this. I said compromise right? Well here’s what I did and it only added $8.00.

I took a few pieces off a vintage hat to sew on the brim and then raided my junk jewerly for a few embellishments to hang on the antique ribbon around the middle. The big flower on top is part of a head band from Forever 21  and retails for $8.oo. I pinned it to the top.  For a more casual look you simply remove it.

My next spring fashion project, was a worn out moon stone ring that I transformed into this…..

I took a .25 cent craft tile and glued it on top for a funky look which beats the $118.00 version at Anthropologie.

That same inner Godess that’s makes me such a rebel inspires my Chic Geek to work her magic.

It’s never too early to learn how to look designer fabulous on a dime store budget. Here’s my little Diva in training…..

At this age it doesn’t take much to look good.  A pair of Christmas PJ’s paired with a tee shirt and cotton skirt from Target and she’s picture perfect.

Spring is here but it doesn’t have to cost you dearly to look good. Shop your own closet, first, for pieces and parts that you can incorporate into something new with a designer look.

 Okay that’s my fashion editorial for this season.

Shopping is my favorite sport! She shops, she buys, she scores 🙂

What’s in your closet?
