Frugalicious Fashion: JLo+Teeology=TV Interview!!

Hello My Frugalistas!!
Haz Click Para Espanol!!

I love to feel comfortable while looking stylish, and when I was invited to exclusively preview Teeology, I couldn’t refuse! Let’s begin with saying the brand its personally curated by Jennifer Lopez (Yes!, That JLo!) and designer Erica Zohar! Ms. JLo has been ‘Spotted’ wearing them everywhere during her world tour! The concept its amazing!!! Graphic designers from all over the world submit their designs and people vote for their favorite ones! So, if you are a fashion forward and creative graphic designer, now you know what to do!!

The winners get paid, recognized with their names on the printed tees and the chance to have their work actually worn!! They can send as many designs as they like and only a limited edition of each design its manufactured, which means fresh and current content!! Now, this wouldn’t be THF unless the prices were totally frugalicious, right?!! Well my friends, Teeology seeks the haute frugalistas of the world, and to reach that, they have priced their gorg tees from $20 to $40!!! They are 100% cotton, super comfy, come in different shapes and styles, and the designs are amazing!! I don’t know about you but I’m SOLD!

During the preview I was interviewed, because you know I’m a style expert and all that! jk!, for NBC6 and Telemundo51 and here are the links to the videos!

Channeling Chanel!!

As you all might have noticed by now, I’m a little bit obsessed with accessories! I personally believe that a stylish handbag can add class to any outfit, take you from day to evening in a heartbeat and allow you to carry your daily essentials in a fashionable manner.

I have decided to dedicate this post to finding fun, frugal and fab bags that honor the classic quilted chain-strapped style that Chanel has made so iconic! I know that most of us mortals cannot afford the real thing, unless willing to starve in the name of fabulosity, and that’s why so many retailers and even known brands have turned this coveted piece into a Frugalicious and accessible one!

I have included choices that might not be exact replicas, because I do not agree with fakes, but are really closely inspired by the design and style of Chanel. My picks have a flare of their own and are full of details, vibrant colors and embellishments.

Do you own a real or inspired one?

Neontastic Finds From Nordstrom Part II: Under $100

I keep on finding myself more and more drawn to Neons. Is like a sugar rush I can’t get rid off! but who doesn’t enjoy the feeling in the meantime?

I love how Neon colors complement an outfit and add the vibrancy that we all need in our lives.
Some personal tips:
*Mixed with white, it adds a laid-back, cool California girl vibe.
*Mixed with darks (black/charcoal), it adds a certain sexiness, and edgy feel to the outfit.
*Mixed with Earthy neutrals, it gives a pop of color, taking the ensemble a notch without putting it on the spot.

Now if you are going to mix Neons with other colors:
*Choose no more than 3 colors and make sure they complement each other (look at a color wheel).
*make one brighter than the other/s to avoid a fight for the spotlight.
*If you decide to add a neutral tone to the mix you will create a look that is classy and fun at the same time.

As I said on my previous post, Finds Under $50, I found too many amazing things at Nordstrom so I decided to divide the list in two! This part is Under $100. All from Nordstrom, all frugalicious!! I’ve included once again Apparel, Accessories and Shoes, this time from labels like Michael Kors and Juicy Couture.

Frugalicious Outfit of the Day: A Turquoise Love

If there is one color that I absolutely adore is Turquoise! I happen to think that it’s a great complement to any outfit, regardless if its neutral or colorblocked.

In an all neutral outfit with earthy tones it makes it a bit romantic and classic; if its an all black enssemble, it gives some edge to the outfit and it adds a pop of color, making it stand out without been too much. Now, if its a colorblocked outfit, it turns it into a more vibrant and fun one, giving a summery feel to any outfit even on the cloudiest days!

Today I’m wearing:

* F21 tank that has some yellow and turquoise beading
*simple dark leggings
*Juicy Couture necklace
*Marc by Marc Jacobs studs
*Michael Kors Leopard watch
*Shoedazzle Statement ring
*Bamboo embellished turquoise flats
*my fave new find: a blue & mint chain strap purse that could be used as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag, taking it from day to night in a second! You can find it here!

Which is your go-to color?

The Quest For the Perfect Structured Bag

Regardless if you work at an office, retailer or from home, there is one wardrobe staple that must be in your closet: a structured handbag.

The timeless shape is perfect for a professional enviroment as it is for meeting the parents, job interviews or even for a Sunday brunch. However, do not think that you already have this all figured out! this classic baby can also be a very trendy one!

The new structured bags come in an array of colors, hardware, textures and designs. This shape could be found in the doctor bag, the messenger, the small crossbody, the clutch and the satchel. In addition, in lights of the new trends, they are stylish options in mint, neon, snakeskin and even colorblock, making it for a Haute Frugalista a dream come true.

In my quest for this beautiful and necessary style I encountered such a a wide variety of choices that I decided to include a little bit of everything in my list. Here I present you some Frugalicious finds!

Enjoy & Share!
