It’s been one whole week since I returned from BlogHer’12 in New York City… and I just unpacked my suitcase. In my defense, I dumped the entire works into the washing machine and went on with my day. (Although, why that couldn’t be done six days ago… I’m pleading the 5th.)
Now I could do a post on all the connections I made, the newfound inspirations, yada, yada, yada – but I’d rather just break down how I managed to wear an entirely new wardrobe, consisting of four faboosh outfits, for under $200. Yes, I am a frugal fashionista.
Day 1: Thursday, August 2nd – on tap, a bunch of parties, including Mom Central’s Chevrolet Official Canadian Party. If you reside north of the border, the party is THE place to be. Situated on the rooftop of the Thompson Hotel, the consensus on Twitter leading up to event was to don a little black dress. However, since my resident LBD had seen too many private parties, I decided a new outfit was in order.
Dress: Le Chateau Outlet, $22.59 (after $50 Groupon)
Cross Body Purse: H&M, $2.59 (after $20 Gift Card)
Kitten Heel Sandals: Steve Madden, borrowed from Mom (= free) (more…)
