Express Outfit of the Day

Hey guys!  I love this blog, but right now I have little time to do pictures for outfit of the days.  So right now I’m going to lazy it up and just do quick outfit of the day vidoes for you guys!  How is that?  Now you get to here my voice.  LOL!

Why I have no shoes on… I have no idea.  Please forgive me.

style

 

I know that I haven’t posted a lot of looks lately.   That’s due to many reasons.  The main reason is that I DO take photos of my outfits, but for some reason I can’t find ANY pictures!  Another reason is I put my work and my photography business first… but right I’m in the middle of being bored of my own style.  Every year I like to go through a personal style renaissance, but I personally have not been inspired.

I can’t tell you that last time I physically stepped into a mall.

The thought if walking into a mall is exhausting enough. 

The fashion blogs are getting worse.

Not style wise, but price wise.

I feel as though a lot of the fashion bloggers are selling out to brands.

It seems like everyone is wearing the same thing… and the things I like cost way too much money.  Honestly, I can’t imagine myself spending $800 on a pair of shoes.  You know what $800 can do for me?  Pay rent.  Pay bills.  Be used on photo equipment.  Black Friday anyone?

However, I am the queen of frugal. 

Etsy is my best friend.

I like to go to thrift shops to buy old furniture and refurbish them.

I PROUDLY ask for discounts at retail stores.  And I get them 95% of them time. 

If a brand new item is slightly broken and is marked at a generous amount off, I pick it up, inspect how much it’s going to cost me to fix, and then request an additional amount off.  Why?   Because that’s how people who have money, keep their money… by not overspending and ACTIVELY ASK for discounts.

I’m getting off track here.

The picture above just shows how effortlessly fashionable some women can be.  Right now I’m in the middle of figuring out how to get myself to that level without having to fork over too much money.

PS… how much do you love the shoes?

Feel free to leave your suggestions below!

I told you guys that I loved this shirt. Now, to be honest, the previous post this week that featured this top was done over two weeks ago. It wasn’t like I wore the shirt Monday and then wore it again on Wednesday. I am bold, but I’m not that bold. LOL

I wanted to showcase how this top can be both casual and corporate. Many places of business don’t allow the shoulders to be seen, but I work in the tech industry so the rules are more relaxed. In all honestly I could rock jeans and sneakers every day to work as long as I looked kept.

Really, the only thing I changed was the pants and how I rocked the shirt. In my previous post I paired the blouse with skinny jeans and left the top untucked. Here I have the shirt tucked and I’m rocking my favorite editor pants from Express.

This shirt has to be one of my favorite purchases from this summer. The versatility is amazing and I plan on wearing it until the last bitter ray of sunshine has dissipated.

Chanel Tank Top?

UrbanJungleFashion

Yesterday I told you guys about the 40% sale at Milk + Honey located in Dallas (btw the sale is on until tomorrow 07/28/2013) and the top is what I picked up.  I have to admit that LOVE this tank.  It’s criss-crossed in the back (not shown in pictures)  and feels so good on the skin!  The best part?!…  100% Made in America.  The only downside is that I still shelled out $25 for a top that was on sale (yes I’m super cheap), but I have to admit that I am happy with my purchase.

I actually rocked this outfit last night at the Dress Dallas 2013.  This event is headed up by my friend and American Idol contestant, Vincent Powell.  I couldn’t stay for the entire event but I wanted to get some shots in for my blog and be able to practice taking runway pictures.  I will post the pictures and more info about the Dress Dallas tomorrow.

Cool Necklace!

Tribal wooden bead necklace

I found this really unique wooden bead necklace bib at Strut during thier 40% sale during Fourth of July weekend (from $21 to $13).  While the rest of my outfit wasn’t anything to write home about I really wanted to show off this piece.

Yes, I actually have a number of outfits to showcase but I have been having OS issues with my comp and the BCOD (blue screen of death) is becoming more and more common these days.  I have to back errrrrrrything up on an external drive in the event my laptop decides he wants to chunk the deuces on me.  It’s crazy because I have had this laptop for six years and everyone freaks out when I tell them I have had a laptop last that long.

I take great care of my electronics.

Plus it’s a Dell.  I find all their products dependable.

Here’s a sneak peak about tomorrows post… bee excitedddddddd!!!

Fourth of July Here I Come!

DSC_0441_edited-1

Here is a recent shoot I completed about two weeks ago with the lovely Tayana. I really loved working with her. There is nothing better to a photographer than a model that can take direction. This was my first attempt at bikini/lingerie photography and I plan to continue to learn and grow. I just wanted to show you guys what I have been up to for my personal business.

Today Jax and I I will be heading down south to Austin for Fourth of July weekend. I plan to chill with family and friends. Kissing my nephew, bar hopping, and light debauchery are all in my near future. I will also be chilling with the Spill.com group for Spill Dot Con. I have already met Korey and Leon (Martin) who are super cool… but I can’t wait to meet Tony (Co-Host) and Chris (Cyrus). I hope I don’t geek out over them and I’m able find some words to say.

Also, while I’m in town I will be hosting a number of photo shoots. If you live in the Austin area and have been considering getting some professional pictures (rather for yourself, couples, or small family) send me a message at UrbanJungleFashion@gmail.com. Also check out my current special on Living Social!

Have a great holiday!
