Getting Creative

I’ve become very financially focused these days, and spending moolah on new clothes is not quite on the to-do list. Instead, I’m working really hard to put outfits together that don’t look like the same old thing every week (although I’m aware that sometimes they do).

Take a gander! I think I did a pretty good job this time around.

Work Trip Wardrobe

This week was a little haywire with traveling to LA for the Design Bloggers Conference.

Take a look at what I wore this week, below!

However… there will be a new Stitch Fix post soon! Stay tuned!

Franco Sarto flats

This week I picked up some new versatile black shoes from DSW (which is conveniently right next to my office) for our Share the Love! event. Oddly enough I don’t have any good black heels or flats… I needed to fix that, stat!

Today they’re the highlight of my casual Friday outfit (which will lead me into another performance at the Studio of Music@Mainstreet tonight).

My 4th Stitch Fix: A Different Approach

My new approach to Stitch Fix styling

WILLING TO SPEND MORE

…kind of. Last time around, I changed my Style Profile to more expensive items, because I wanted to focus on business event attire and looking more professional. My stylist Leah knocked it out of the park!

However, I also had to realize that, in general, I need to get more aggressive in my saving strategy for a new apartment coming up in July.

Here’s how I compromised…
