One of my favorite things to do is look in women’s magazines at what the models are wearing to get inspired. Of course, the stuff they’re wearing is all designer, all over $1,000 a piece, and that’s not really in my budget.
So, we’re starting a new feature here called Fashion Friday. Each week we will feature a photo of one of us in our most favorite outfit or accessory. We will tell you why that special piece makes us feel beautiful, sexy, confident as Hell, and if you love it as much was we do, where you can scoop it up for yourself!
The best part? Everything is MUCH more affordable than in the magazines.
This is an outfit I love to wear during the colder months. Every piece makes me want to strut my stuff.
The jeans are the most expensive thing I have on, from Joe’s Jeans.
Joe’s Jeans fit my curves perfectly. This is the Best Friend cut that retails for $165. The best part? I got them on sale for 50% off. Right now if you order through their website you can get 15% off if you use promo code JoeGivesCheer.
I bought the sweater last year for $49 at H&M when I was pregnant. I love stretchy knits, they hit me just right. I found a similar piece at H&M this year, also for $49.
Or this one by DKNY, on Zappos:
I love flat, slouchy boots, you can dress them up or down. Mine are from Dress Barn!
These are a similar pair I found at my favorite accessories site, ShoeDazzle. You can get them there for only $39—with free shipping to the United States!
Do you have a confidence outfit? A pair of shoes that makes you walk on air all day? A necklace that makes you smile when you catch your reflection in the mirror? A dress that oozes sexy and strength? We’d love to feature you on Fashion Friday.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with Fashion Friday in the subject line and include a picture of you rocking it, a few sentences telling us why you love the piece, where you purchased it, and we’ll feature you on an upcoming Fashion Friday!
