Cheap & Chic

I know, it's been far too long. I was inspired today by my beautiful friend Wendy Allamby (see blog-she's inspired me before) when I ran into her today at Mystic Journey.  She is an incredible reader and she works with animals as well.  Check Wendy out if you're on the West side of LA.  

I was admiring her beautiful ensemble of a black chiffon drapey mini dress, patterned tights, punk booties and gilded hippie head piece topped off by a giant faux fur yeti jacket.  She looked amazing! I only wish I had taken a picture!

We were talking fashion and she, as usual, complemented me, though I was dressed down today in an L.L. Bean men's sweater, jeans and hush puppies.  Though I did add feather earrings.  I told her that I had dressed a bit more like myself the day before when I went ring shopping with my sis and future brother-in-law.  She wanted a picture of the outfit, so here it is.

Just to prove that it's not hard to dress nicely with very little $, the dress I'm wearing is from Old Navy, but it reminds me of something Michael Kors would do.  

Most days you'll find me in clothes that are recycled or thrifted.  I inevitably get the most compliments on those treasures I have found on the cheap.  You can too!
