Thrift Store Sweater

Thrift-store-sweater-1

Every year I buy sweaters I don’t need, and every year I tell myself to stop. Guess how this year is going? Same. Only this time, I’m sticking to thrift store sweaters.

I’ve been obsessed with 80s dad sweaters and there’s no better place to find them than a thrift store. I found this cool purple oversized sweater from a local thrift store for only $5. The sweater’s purple with hints of turquoise and pink was perfect on a cold rainy day.

If you’re looking to stock up on sweaters, I definitely recommend thrift stores. Especially, if you’re looking for vintage sweaters!

Cool weather, fall fashion

Men’s-Fall-fashion-1

It’s a cool and rainy day in San Antonio. It finally feels like fall is here, so I had to bring out the fall fashion with fall colors.

For the top portion of my look, I started with a red brick colored T-shirt and layered it with a mustard colored corduroy jacket. I got both pieces from Forever 21. The jacket is sold out but you can find a similar one at ASOS. The colors definitely compliment each other and they say fall!

I went with my dad fit jeans and these cool Fila x Pierre Cardin Disruptor shoes. You can find the jeans and shoes at Urban Outfitters. I wasn’t sure about the polka dot shoes at first, but I’ve been about dad shoes lately, and I figured why not?

What colors and pieces are you excited to wear for fall?

Yeezy 700 Mauve

Yeezy-700-Mauve-1

The Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve was hyped for so long and while it didn’t sell out in an hour, it didn’t disappoint. At least not for me.

The shoe has a very unique mixture of black, brown, purple and electric green. The combination sounds a little crazy but it totally works. The earthy shades are perfect for fall and winter.

I paired my Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve shoes with some torn black skinny jeans from Zara and an oversized grey sweater from Target. I’d usually stick to black or white shoes with an outfit like this, but the Yeezys definitely work.

Do I love these shoes? Yes. Do I think people who were turned off by the colors missed out? Absolutely. The 700 silhouette serves the chunky dad shoe realness that’s in right now. While the color is typical, that’s what makes it a must-have!

What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 in Mauve?

Plaid Pants and Dad Sneakers

I’ve jumped on the fall trend bandwagon of plaid pants and dad sneakers with my recent look. I’ve always had a thing for plaid, but I’ve mainly kept it to flannel until now. I purchased these plaid woven trousers from Forever 21 for about $27. If you’re looking to cop affordable plaid items that mirror the runway looks, I suggest Forever 21, Topman or Zara.

For dad sneakers, you won’t find a shortage of them all ranging in price point. If you don’t plan to drop $895 or more on shoes like the Balenciaga Triple S, look no further than the Fila Disruptors. They have the chunky look that’s all the rage for only $60 and above. I got my Urban Outfitters exclusive Fila Disruptors for only $80. I am pretty much obsessed with them and ordered another pair of Disruptors that should be coming my way very soon.

Are you loving the plaid and dad sneaker trends?

Saucony Shadow Originals

It’s no surprise that I am obsessed with shoes. For the last seven years, I’ve collected a variety of dress shoes, casual shoes, boots, etc., and recently my shoe obsession has turned to sneakers.

I’ve purchased a couple of pairs of shoes, and I plan to feature them as they arrive. My first feature are my Saucony Shadow Original shoes.

I was not familiar with the Saucony brand. I’d seen it on a handful of people before and had seen an outlet store before. However the minute I saw these shoes on the Urban Outfitters website, I had to have them!

The shoes are obviously stylish and comfortable too! I’ve worn them with a number of outfits in the short minute I’ve had them, and they go with pretty much anything.

If you’ve fallen for or are curious about the recent dad sneaker craze, I totally recommend these. They are stylish without having all a crazy color way combination. They are a good pair to start with! What do you think about Saucony?

Pastel stripes and Yeezys

Last night was a much needed night of dancing and listening to good music with my boo. I was feeling my outfit and needed to take a couple of pictures. My pastel striped button up was a recent purchase from Urban Outfitters, and it was my first outing with it. I paired my new shirt with some light washed Zara skinny jeans and my Adidas Yeezy 500 blush shoes.

Fashion on a dime

I love a good deal when it comes to clothing and shoes, because I don’t think looking your best needs to cost a fortune. A good find doesn’t need to come from a thrift store or off-price clothing store like some of my recent finds. If you’re patient enough, you can purchase designer and name brand finds for a discounted price at their respective store.

I am a big fan of Zara and for the most part, you will find their clothing at retail price. However, at the end of each season they mark down most of the store to make room for the next season. The end of the season sale is how I bagged myself these grey distressed torn jeans for $25, instead of $49.50.

I also got my New Balance 300 shoes at a bargain. I am pretty sure these shoes retailed around $80, but I ended up getting them for about $30 at Urban Outfitters. I had been eyeing them for a while, and was excited to get them for such a deal!

Some times finding a bargain at a retail store takes times, but it can be a win! If retail bargain hunting or thrifting isn’t your style, you can find some stylish, affordable clothing at Target like my green tee ($12). Where do you shop for fashion on a dime?
