Before I started at FOX I lived in running clothes. When I wasn't walking around in running clothes I was either in a hoodie or black jeans and some sort of band t-shirt. I realized quickly I would have to get my wardrobe updated, fast.
My friend Katie from "Rock Your Runway" gave me a few tips on how to update what I was wearing and I have managed to create some new looks on a very low budge.
I have been getting a few emails with people asking where I have been shopping and where I have been getting all my clothes and I thought why not share on the 'ole blog. So this is volume one.
First outfit I want to share is a personal favorite. I love red! I found this red skirt at Express. Now they can be a tad pricey but they are constantly doing 40% off everything in the store, and nearly half off of a 60 dollar skirt becomes very affordable. Just make sure you join their email list and you'll get all of the deals.
Shopping local is also something I like to try to do. Grand Rapids has tons to offer when it comes to shops and boutiques and my personal favorite is Humanity Boutique. I found this great striped blouse that works perfect on it's own, or with a jacket, sweater, or even over a long sleeve.
Jewelry has always been tough for me, I just never got into accessorizing. I can say since I have been trying to add more jewelry to my wardrobe it has made all my outfits pop. Love Culture in the River Town Mall actually has a HUGE going out of buisness sale and I got this awesome necklace for 2.00. That is a price you can't beat!
The finished look turned out like this... that's actually the Plain White T's with me in the photo! They came to Grand Rapids for the 5/3 Ballpark Summer Concert Series and I landed a quick interview.
