Have you ever felt like blessings or opportunities were on standby in your life? I sure have. But it’s important to continue to do the work handle your business and keep God first.
It’s no secret that I proceed with Caution when it comes to purchasing anything full price or anything that is well over my frugal budget.
Are you living your best life each and everyday? Are you thriving? or just surviving?
What’s life without a foundation? I have learned over the years that in order to truly brand yourself you have to build a solid foundation. A foundation of supportive people around you who truly believe in you and you also have to gain knowledge daily if possible.
You ever stopped and thought… “Wow, I prayed for this. It’s here. It’s happening.”
When it comes to What Derria Would Wear… I keep it simple… and Chic!
If you haven’t already noticed I love clothes and when it comes to styling my looks for outfit posts there are times I want to put my edgy style out there but there are also times that I keep it simple yet chic. Its really important to me to have a well rounded wardrobe. So even on my chill days I’m still stylishly chic.
As you may know I am relocating from North Carolina to Los Angeles this month and it has been very tough trying to pack up all my clothes in boxes and also in suitcases. It clear I wont have access to my clothes all at one time so I’m currently going through everything and choosing pieces that I can wear multiple ways until I get everything in the mail. Talk about stressed. I know it wont be too bad though.
Below is a look that can be worn Three different ways.
Look #1: As an oversized dress by itself with my Comme Des Garcon x Converse sneakers. (or any neutral sneaker)
Look #2: Pictured below with the dress and denim skirt layered to provide an edginess.
Look #3: Skirt tied up or draped over the denim skirt. Each look can give different vibes.

When you think of Business Casual or Dress clothes, do you think about pinstripes?
I sure do! But I Dress Up to Dress down when it comes to my wardrobe. And mixing up your casual and business clothes can be fun and challenging.
A casual band T-shirt with a pinstripe wrap skirt is how I approached this trend. And of course outfits under $50 or $100 are always the goal.
My cut off band T-Shirt is from HM it only ran me about $18. But I always use a 20% off text coupon so it was most likely a little less. The wrap skirt.. $7! What’s crazy is I saw it in another Forever 21 store for Regular price $15 and when I was at another location I found it on the sale rack for half price! Frugal Shopaholic Luck!
Glasses are Buffalo Exchange of course, probably the only place in-store next to Forever 21 that I buy glasses. Surprisingly my bag is from TJ Maxx. For those of you who continue to sleep on TJ Maxx… keep on so I can round up all the cute stuff for my own wardrobe.
Last but not least my heels. They are Cape Robbin brand and I got them from Nordstrom Rack for under $30. You should definitely frequent Nordstrom Rack online. They have some of the best brands for really low prices, I just wish they had free shipping!
