Diaries of A Bargainista: Marshalls Style

This skirt is another oldie, but goodie.  It's one of the first skirts that I posted on my blog, check out the original post.  For some reason, I have hung on to it all these years, but yet I still am loving it.  

After gaining 50 lbs with a baby I was afraid it would never fit again, but thankfully I held on to it and it still fits!!  Both the top and the skirt is from Marshalls.  If I remember correctly the skirt was only $14.99 and the top was $16.99.  My wedges are also from several years ago that I wear all the time! Let's just consider these "Free" since they are so old, LOL!

What do you think about this look?

Maxi Dress: KLR Remix

Have you ever thought about just putting a t-shirt over your regular maxi dress?  Gives it a whole new look!  I just tied-up the side and voila - a totally new dress!  You could even add a thick belt around the middle and you wouldn't even be able to tell that it's 2 separate pieces.

I'm re-mixing the Champs Maxi from Kiki La Rue.  You can read all out this dress here.

Lately I've really been trying to restyle either new pieces that I've bought or old ones.  You see, my addiction is shopping.  I love shopping, I love buying stuff just to buy stuff even if I don't need it. Online shopping is even becoming more fun now that I'm a stay at home mom and I can just point and click during nap time.  HOWEVER, since I am a stay at home mom I can't just go out and buy whatever I want whenever I want.  I also don't have nearly as much time to go and dig through the racks at Marshalls and Ross like I used to.  Remixing pieces and making them new again helps to satisfy my shopping addiction and need to always have something new.

What's your addiction?  Do you like shopping as much as I do?

Diaries of A Bargainista: Georgia Peach

Excuse the unintentional Ombre, should I just go for it and do it intentionally?
Cardigan {Kiki La Rue} / Blouse {Target} / Crops {American Eagle} / Shoes {Target}
Showcasing another Kiki La Rue piece today.  This Peach Tulip Cardigan is lightweight, so soft and is the perfect color.  I know the colors in my pictures make it look light pink, but it's really a light peach color.  It's also the perfect length and covers my tush which I really like. I literally can not wait to wear this with jeggings and riding boots.  I feel like you could also style it a ton of different ways.  I'm thinking maybe a plaid top underneath would be really cute too. 

I find myself always wearing cardigans like this in the fall and winter and even wearing them around the house with a tank and yoga pants. 

Do you have any go-to cardigans that you find yourself wearing all the time?

PIKO Top: 3 Ways

Piko tops have been all the rage this season and are so versatile! I love that you can wear them in so many different ways!  Not only are they super versatile, but they also hide the after-baby bulge!

If you know me really well, you know that I am a jeans and a t-shirt kinda gal.  T-shirts are my go to staple and a Piko top is the perfect way to dress things up a little more.

I think the look without the belt is my favorite, what do you think?

In these photos I first of all apologize for the terrible iPhone quality pics and second of all apologize for the stupid A** look on my face!  Sometimes a girl just has to snap a photo and go!

So now, where do you get this wonderful Piko Top?  Gee, I thought you'd never ask! Kiki La Rue of course!  I'm currently thinking about purchasing the Ocean Blue and Plain Ol Black Piko.  All Piko's are currently 20% off with code PIKOSUMMER, you're welcome! Which ones do you want?

I'm also still in the running to be a KLR Brand Ambassador and am literally on pins and needles waiting for my phone call this week!  Wish me luck!!! Oh and follow me on Instagram  so you can follow along with me on the daily!

Why I should be a Kiki La Rue Ambassador


As some of you may already know, my favorite online boutique is Kiki La Rue.  If you haven't heard of them, then shame on you!  This is your chance to get to know them.

A few weeks ago they put a call out for Brand Ambassadors.  First of all I LOVE this boutique and second of all I have a love for clothes and all things fashion!  This sounds like the perfect job for me!  I had been following their page for an entire year until I finally decided to pull the trigger and make my first purchase.  I swore last year that if the Champs Maxi came back I would buy it. The second I saw that they were back I made the purchase.  I received the dress within 2 days of my order (I live really close to their warehouse) and was so happy with the purchase.

The fabric is really soft and it has just the right amount of flowiness to hide anything that you don't want seen.  I just had a baby in January and putting on the Champs Maxi made me feel really pretty for the first time in a REALLY long time.  For those of you that have a baby, you can probably relate to the postpartum ugly feeling.  I feel like my eyes lit up in this dress and I knew I was hooked on this boutique.

The Champs is only the first of several other purchases.  This Daisy Mae Maxi shown above makes feel so girly and beautiful!  The chrochet detail at the top is even more stunning in person than in the photos.  All of their clothes put an instant smile on my face.

What I love most about KLR is they put real girls in real clothes.  I get so sick of looking at clothes online and see stick figure girls model everything.  Well how in the world do I know that's going to look good on me?  Most of the time when I order something online and get it, it doesn't fit at all and never is really what I was wanting. With KLR you never have to worry about this, if you have a question about sizes just post a question on Instagram or shoot them an email and they will respond promptly.

When I'm passionate about something I know I can endorse it!  I know for a fact that I would be a great Brand Ambassador for KLR.  I truly believe that KLR isn't just a piece of clothing, but it's a feeling and an emotion that I think every girl should be able to experience.  I want to have the opportunity to share that experience with other girls.  Everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful.  Even being considered to be a part of such a wonderful brand is an honor in itself.

So, Kiki La Rue, if you are reading this (which I hope you are) - please consider me as a Brand Ambassador, I know you won't be disappointed!  I will put my whole heart and soul into this and will add a little bit of sugar and spice here and there.  Are you ready to work with me?  I know I'm ready to work with you!
