street style: emily

emily b
Meet Emily
So I have this thing about accessible fashion.  I love the spreads in Vogue magazines and blog posts about designer labels, but let's face it--we're not supermodels dropping the big bucks. 
The whole point of "budget blogging" is for any reader to look at it and say, "If she can do it, I can do it."

With that being said, I want to feature friends and those I encounter that give me inspiration.  So this is a first run at street style. (I wish I had more pictures of friends, but it's been snowing.....and I haven't really left the house.)

So meet Emily--a dear friend and new favorite shopping buddy.  When I saw her outfit, I knew it was blog worthy because I immediately wanted to wear it. And bonus--she's a bargain shopper.

She's wearing:
shoes (cutesygirl.com)                                          jegging/skinny jean (kohls)
shirt (old navy)                                                      blazer ($0.99 thrift!!)
circle scarf (jcrew outlet clearance)                      accessories (forever21)

To see what Emily's been up to, visit her blog

Her outfit reminds me of Kendi Everyday's style. Love.


  1. Thanks Emme - totally flattering to make Sunday Crossbow style watch! This outfit was certainly inspired by your outfits!

  2. I totally agree with your budget concept. On my post today I'm featuring my thrifty version ($23.50 for the outfit) of Comme des Garcon's Spring 2011 MENSwear. Inspired by men wearing really expensive dresses!

    You look fabulous -- I love the shoes. Great pop of color!

  3. Thanks for doing this kind of post! I love getting inspiration from looks that are completely affordable and copyable...like this one!

  4. Great outfit! Cannot believe that blazer was only $0.99!!! That's one amazing thrift buy for sure!

    Completely agree with you (and everyone else's comments) about affordable style! I love when I see a really well put together outfit and a total spent of less than $50; it's inspiring through its accessibility!

  5. Just ran across your blog and i'm in love with it! Gorgeous!
