Frugal Fashion: Black Skinny Jeans & Cutouts

June 21, 2012

Black Skinny Jeans & Floral Cutout Top

Sunglasses-  Coach Outlet (get ’em on clearance baby!)  /  Necklace- HauteLook  /  Top & Pants- Karen Kane  / Shoes-  Marshall’s (ages ago!)

Skinny pants and I have a love/hate relationship- very rarely can I find a pair of skinny cut jeans or pants that fit me properly.  Usually, they’re way too tight in the leg and saggy on top when you wear them out for a few hours, they stretch in all the worst spots!  I finally found a pair of black twill pants that fit my figure and don’t cling/sag in the wrong spots so they’ve been a staple in my wardrobe- totally an investment piece!  Now… to invest in some new colors!

Have you noticed the popularity of the cutout sleeve lately? (Like this one or this red top I adore!)  I’ve seen them everywhere and I love them, they’re kinda fun ya?

Black Skinny Jeans & Floral Top

My favorite part of any outfit is being able to mix old with new.  These strappy pumps have been in my wardrobe for years, and this necklace just came in the mail from HauteLook (major discounts- HauteLook is my new obsession.)

Frugal Fashion Tip:

My frugal tip for this look is to invest in a few key pieces that fit right & work with anything- like a pair of skinny jeans that flatter and a pair of black pumps that always work…then mix it up with a statement piece of jewelry you snag on sale.

Statement jewelry isn’t always appropriate- but if you get it on sale your dollar goes a bit further for the complete looks you can use it with!

But guess what? There’s more to this post than just me talking about my outfit…

    Those shoes are great. I’ve got a few pairs of shoes that have survived the test of time too. It’s funny – I’ll skip wearing them for a season and then rediscover them the next year.
