I always love perusing fellow bloggers to see where my next found muse will reside.
I’ll admit, I don’t read many style blogs (because the outfits always add up to $500 a pop–yeah RIGHT) but there are a few really great things about pretty penny:
she takes into account what my good friend Madeline has always told me…you buy a few expensive things to compliment everything else–that’s how you do style on a budget. You only spend the money on the signature pieces and everything else you get it on the clearance rack.
pretty penny also recycles many of her pieces, in looking through her archives I noted that she recycled many things several times.
the best part about her blog is that she incorporates so many pieces from Kohls and since I am a couponer I definitely KNOW that you can get Kohls clothing practically free because they let you combine their store coupons (you can use Kohls cash with Kohls percentage off coupons simultaneously).
So, I’ve ended up pinning several of her posts and I’m going to see if I can recreate what she has done over the coming months. I’ve got so many of the items she utilizes, I am just terrible at putting them together. We’ll see how this project fix-my-style goes.
challenge 1: since I’ve had these HUE mustard tights sitting in my closet for over a year (I found them on clearance in SF for 3 bucks and just knew they would make something look great). Well, she’s done it. Can I?
