From FAB!

Good day to you from Blogsville, my fabulous fashionistas!  If there's one thing I've learned while living life in the "fash" lane, it is: DON'T DISCARD THE DISCOUNT AISLES!  I've found some of my favorite duds cruising the unwanteds.  In fact, my outfit today consists of one of the clutches you will find in todays pictures, and I am wearing a lovely oversized cobalt blue silk blouse that I found in the...aHEM--Older women's section.  I am NOT ashamed!  Cruising the unwanteds section is my favorite weapon of choice. Yes, my lovelies; I said WEAPON.  It is a fashion battlefield!  Don't knock it til you try it.  Now on to the topic at hand...
When discount cruising, a fashionista has to be creative.  What may appear be unsightly may be in need of some minor tweaking.  For example:

I stumbled across two bags that I would never, ever wear, but I could see that they had potential.  The colors are are two of the "must be worn" for this season, and the buckles were a nice touch.  Then, it hit me.  I would cut off the straps and turn these bulky bags into clutches!

First, I peeled back the seams so I could get to the base of the strap as possible, and cut the straps with a pair of sharp scissors.

Then, I pushed and tucked the frayed remains into the seams with the tip of the scissors and folded over the the top half of the bag and.....

                                           A new "must have" accessory, all for the price of $8!

Stay Fashionably Fabulous!

Summer Stylin

Hello, my lovelies!  As many of my UK fashionistas know, the sun has not been kind to England for most of this season.  In fact, it started to feel like a fleeting image I once imagined.  Just when I was going to throw in the towel (or shall say, "duds)--lo and behold!  Summer arrived, and just in time for the Olympics.  Maybe it was the Greek gods, I don't know.  All I care about is FINALLY not having to wear a sweater, and most importantly, I get to wear my fashionably delicious outfits that have been sadly hanging in my closet wayyy longer than they should have.  What better way to kick off the late season than with neons and stripes?  It's all about color.  Now, if only I can get some on my legs...Til next time....

                                     Stay Fashionably Fabulous!
