Shop Savvy: Holiday Happenings…on a budget

Posted in Shop Savvy by SMUstyle on December 18, 2009

Hop on the holiday party circuit looking your best with festive and affordable frocks and accessories. I’m all about saving money this year, but looking fab is never not an option.

1.) Forever 21 $24.80 – With Forever 21 you have to really be an educated shopper in order to sort through the cheap and find the chic. This dress is silk, and coming from a lower end retailer I would typically say steer clear, but the tailored quality makes the sheath look more Alice & Olivia than Forever. So don’t stop at this red light – GO!

2.) Forever 21 $6.80 – A statement sparkling jewelry piece like this is the ultimate wardrobe must have this holiday season. If you’re on a budget this Forever bold bauble is a clever choice!

3.) See By Chloe black tights $55- Tights are mandatory with this outfit to set off the red satin and silver pumps – without some opaque black, I’m afraid you’ll look terribly trashy. Look, you can get tights anywhere at any price point – CVS and Walgreens even! So cover those legs and fool the fashionistas about the whereabout of your fashionable finds.

4.) Nine West $35- These mary-jane silver pumps might not be to everyones liking, but they sure do add that extra bit of holiday glitz and glam to your step. Make the pair pop with dark tights, with this ensemble black is best, and mini or fun frock like this. Not to mention they are on SALE, so even if you do only whip this out this time of the year or even just in the last remanding days of 2009 – you could possibly reason the purchase.

Shop Savvy: Yearning for YSL

Posted in Shop Savvy by SMUstyle on December 9, 2009

I have been eyeing these deep purple YSL pumps since the summer and finally found them on SALE at Neiman Marcus downtown. Unfortunately, they are in the five-hundreds, so not exactly in my price range – yet! I still tried them on though…A girl can dream right?

I have been an avid reader of for the past several months and could kick myself for not discovering the fabulously fashionable Jane Aldridge sooner! The 18-year-old blogger turned style icon resides in North Dallas, when she is not traveling the globe making appearances or debuting at the Crillon Ball in Paris! Jane’s mom, Judy, who is just a chic as her daughter and manages her own inspiring web muse, Atlantis Home, will be in attendance as well. Not to mention editors from Harpers! I have an 8 am final, but there is no way im missing this event!
