Don’t you love when you find hidden gems like this beautiful woman from a century ago painted on a back ally wall? I’m already channeling my inner diva with this outfit and the graffiti diva made it that much better. If you’ve read my Bio section, you’ve heard me say I’m a bit sassy. This outfit confirms that, 100%.
I snagged this velvet plum pencil dress from Forever 21 in NYC on Black Friday for only $20.00. The Forever 21 in Time Square has four levels (yes I said FOUR) underground, beneath the hustle of bustle of traffic. Once you walk in, there are escalators to transport you down four levels into a world of heavenly prints and plush fur coats. This plush pink vest is from Forever 21 too. I might like this store a little too much. My bracelets are from A T avenue. Who would’ve guessed?! My favorite piece of this entire ensemble is my Ivanka Trump cross body. It was originally $195.00 and I got it for only $40.00. Bargains boost my adrenaline. Once I get started, there is no stopping me. The best bargain shopping binge sessions for me happen at TJ Maxx, which is where I found this little gem.
This outfit may be too bold for some. It was almost too bold for me, but it was surprisingly comfortable so I had to rock it. Once you commit, there’s no going back. Stepping outside your style comfort zone can be scary. I like wearing odd ensembles because it reflects my quirky personality. I think fashion is a universal language. We all say something about ourselves by the threads we wear. What do your threads say about you?
