Three reasons that you're awesome:
The fact that I can’t hide what I’m thinking is pretty entertaining for those around me.
I’m an expert at shopping the sale racks.
I’m mildly obsessed with French fries or any potato product for that matter.
What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
Mustard colored silk pants that I got from Madewell on major sale ($15 anyone?), polka dot peplum top from Marshalls, black wedges and a statement necklace.
What is the last item of clothing you bought? I just discovered Sole Society (awesome for the fashionista obsessed with shoes!) and purchased a pair of biker boots perfect for Fall. I can’t wait to pair with feminine frocks! Wait, that’s not clothing…
What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
The Zara camo jacket every blogger seems to be sporting right now. It has bedazzled pockets?!!? I want! Still looking for something similar in my budget.
Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes. White denim overalls with massive, bright blue polka dots, a blue belly shirt, and white Converse sneakers. Probably my absolute favorite outfit from my childhood, I wore it as much as I possibly could. Funny to think that entire outfit is on trend right now!
What is your best thrifting score?
My denim cutoff shorts, they fit my like a glove! They’re worn in and holey and were worth the whole dollar I spent on them.
Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?
(1) Red lipstick is everyone’s friend, just find the shade perfect for your complexion
(2) a white tee might be the most underappreciated item in your wardrobe, put it to good use
(3) a smile will always be the best accessory!
Thanks so much for sharing, Joanne!
