Too many women suffer from not having time to get ready in the morning…any any mornings after they’ve gotten married and/or have children.  The focus always shifts from us (me, you, baby) to them (you and baby); the Me gets lost in translation.  It’s unfortunate that women have to carry all the burdens we have and are expected to look a certain way…it seems impossible…ESPECIALLY IF YOU ADD WORK INTO THE MIX.

Tiffany is wife, momma, teacher and super-saiyan. The key to adding a little spark back in her life and yours is a cute, simple wardrobe built on separates and wardrobe basics. Check out some of the looks I put together from our shopping trip that did not break the bank. I scored all of these pieces (minus bags) from consignment shopping: Escada, White House Black Market, Vince Camuto, J. Crew, Talbots, Chicos and more for less than $200! 3 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of heels, 3 necklaces and 11 tops to interchange with new and existing bottoms.

Flirty and Fun White Dress

Lace is a huge trend this season and it adds a delicate feminine touch. Teacher of the Year, Kiwonda never wears white, unbeknownst to me, but looks fabulous.  Just in time for spring and appropriate for several occasions and event, from weddings to work! The bell sleeves add a fun vibe to look and minimal accessories to complete the look.

Don’t be afraid to add a touch of color with heels…nude or black cold work, but these red Valentino inspired heels from her closet pair well.

Casual V-Day Style

Valentines Day falls on a weekday this year.

I have a record of being single on the day itself, so I’m accustomed to dressing for and taking myself out (even though I do during the year anyways…Spa day is DESPERATELY calling my name).

You can still dress flirty and appropriate for work or class. Check out this super affordable look I achieved mainly shopping on clearance racks.

Happy New Year!  I haven’t posted since before Christmas…lots of family time, rest and thankfulness.  Of course, i’ve been busy thrifting :).

I’ve been trying to get into Mad Men…and Joan Harris (Christina Hendricks character) is probably my favorite…I love her style. This look reminds me of portraying…being a high powered woman. Especially in this Giorgio Armani pencil skirt.

It’s chilly outside, so there are a few layers with the leather coat and scarf, all thrifted. This look is perfect for the office, conference, doctors, lawyers…anyone. It’s tailored, chic and gives off expensive vibes.

Best Affordable Holiday Look

Holiday parties and formals are in full swing now that December is here.  I’ve got the perfect look for your corporate holiday gathering or a night out on the town with your girlfriends or beau.  Think Bold…Bright…Striking, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.  This look was under $75.

Tis the season! Holiday looks are officially here and i’m so excited because red is my favorite color.  I actually start holiday decorating a week before Thanksgiving and that includes blasting all the holiday tunes.  This holiday, I really want to focus on the traditional colors, red, green, white, but adding textures, prints and sparkles.
