Dinner.








Hey ladies! Back with a new OOTD. I wore this outfit out for a little Asian cuisine with one of my friends. Dinner was ah-mazing! I was sleeping on those garlic noodles and prawns tho….the truth! Lol But…yeah, I wanted to keep things really simple but cute. So, I opted for a sheer long-sleeve leopard top, black skinnies and a pop of color with a red faux snakeskin clutch. I swear these black skinnies have to be my fave of all time! They are definitely repeat offenders...lol, welp. Do you have anything in your closet you can’t retire? lol

Much love,

Fuchsia.





       




  


Hey Ladies! I’m back with another Whole Fit From The Thrift! Ok, so…anyone who thrifts knows that it can be tiring and takes a LOT of patience. But if you love it as much as I do, in the end, it’s all worth it. A few weeks ago...I went thrifting at my favorite store, but after hitting a few aisles I was already tired and just wasn’t feeling it. It was a Saturday and all I wanted to do was go home, get in bed and watch Netflix. I decided to hit one more aisle before leaving out, and ended up finding this long sleeve fuchsia dress with cute pleats, a cinched in waist AND in my size! Best of all it was on sale for $2.47!!! I ended up wearing it to church to get my praise and worship on :) I kept it simple and paired it with some nude heels, a gold watch and thin hoop earrings. I LOVE when I find deals like this and encourage you all to try thrifting out if you haven’t already. Here are my top 10 thrifting tips. Please feel free to add to the list, I’ll take all the tips I could get :)

1.       When you find a thrift store, ask if they have sales. – a lot of thrift stores have weekly, bi-weekly or monthly sales that could save you even more.
2.       Be patient – A lot of people don’t like to thrift because they go in and the first couple things they see they don’t like and they give up. Keep digging…keep looking and you’ll find gold.
3.       Wear comfortable shoes – Nothing will make you leave a store faster, than your feet hurting.
4.       Clothing – wear clothing that makes it easy for you to try clothes on, on top of. A lot of thrift stores don’t have dressing rooms so I wear thin camisole’s, tights, etc. To make it easy to slide clothes on top of.
5.       Check – Always check for stains, holes, broken zippers, etc. You don’t want to get home and find out that your favorite find is damaged.
6.       Cash money – Don’t forget to bring the cash. Some thrift stores allow you to use debit and credit but a lot of stores only accept cash. So bring some green just in case.
7.       Visit – visit different thrift stores in different areas of town. I need to use this tip myself…I get so used to going to the same store…but don’t limit yourself. Search for new ones. So many places have great pieces.
8.       Limit – Try a thrifting limit. I usually take $20-25 with me. It is easy to go overboard in the thrift store…I have left with BAGS and BAGS of stuff that I didn’t need and didn’t have room for. So find your limit and stick with it.
9.       Take a friend – taking a friend with you could make your experience much more fun and make the searching period more bearable…lol.
10.   Imagine – While picking pieces, imagine your closet at home and how you style what you already have with your newly thrifted threads.

And that’s it! Hope this helps ladies! Happy thrifting and much love…

1990's










Hey ladies! Today’s outfit of the day is Adrienne Bailon inspired. Sometimes Adrienne’s fashion is hit and miss  in my opinion. But overall…I love her style and especially her accessory choices. She has a very cute yet edgy style. Last year, I saw her rocking these multicolored Badacious 1990’s Series Door Knocker earrings and INSTANTLY fell in LOVE with them. I HAD to have them! Fast forward to 2012, and I saw a still of her on Empire Girls rocking them again with all black and a colored purse. I knew right then, I wanted to recreate this look. So for my friend’s birthday celebration I brushed the dust off my 1990’s and brought them out for a comeback…lol. I wore a long sleeve sheer top that I got from Rainbow, black skinnies, vintage red clutch and my three-toned Zara sandals to tie it all together.  Do you have something in your closet that needs to make a comeback? :)

Much love,

A Taste.






                                                                                           


Hey Ladies! So…I wore this outfit the other weekend to “A Taste of Soul”, an event held annually in LA where different vendors come out to sell food, fashions, promote health, talk politics and much more. When I say Crenshaw was FULLY packed…please believe me! I decided to keep it simple and wear a loose fitting dark blue top, blue skinnies (just can’t retire these lol), a little touch of leopard and simple gold accessories. When my friend saw me she said “oh so you decided to go monochromatic?” I was like “huh?” Shame on me…I need to study my fashion more! Of course I heard of monochromatic recently, especially concerning ‘Kimye’…but for some reason I thought that just meant wearing black? Lol. Welp...we learn something new every day :) Overall, I liked how everything came together and now I’m excited to try more “mono” looks! What about yall? Have you tried the monochromatic trend yet?

Much love,
Tiff
