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.

Lately, I’ve been having really quick days. Puff, minimal makeup and something quick to wear. I haven’t had too much time in the mornings to methodically plan out my outfit, which always seems to be the best looks. Granted I could if just woke up earlier, but thankfully I don’t because my skin has been on point—-which is the most important thing 😜.

There is a locally owned shop in my hometown, Savannah – Thread + Onion that has super cute items and the collections as a whole have Asian and Southern comfort inspired themes. Simple yet elegant. Structured yet comfortable. Plus, you can tell and feel that the items are handmade. This sweater dress is sooooo comfortable, I had to toss on some Adidas. But, it also looks great with flats (which I wore to work)  and boots, like here.

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.

I might go on a tangent about how much i’m going to miss warm weather with Fall and Wintter approaching…even thought it’s still in the 80’s in good ‘ol Savannah, Georgia.  But what I do love…is burgundy…marroon…deep plums.  Probably because their variations of red and purple, two of my favorite colors.  Not to mention, it’s always fall appropriate, but is a very trendy color…nails, hair, coats, shoes, etc.

I’ve been waiting to wear this dress because I love the bow, BUT LET ME TELL YOU….the arms are totally wonky.  I needed to pull it over my big hair, have my mom pull the dress down WHILE my dad was pulling my arm up. Yea, a mess. But it was worth it lol.  I paired this rich color dress with some rich boots…my Manolo Blahniks…that were unworn. And free. Remember?
