Weekend Wear #1

May 22, 2010

Hey guys! Hope that you are having a great weekend! I have decided to start a new feature here on Meet Virginia called: "Weekend Wear." Since I work from home I rarely leave my sweats during the week, so the weekends are when I get all dolled! I don't know if it will be on a regular but you will for sure see more of it so get excited!

Friday we were able to attend a fashion event that local designers put on in Salt Lake City, UT called: The Fashion Stroll. It's so fun we try and go every time the hold it, the stroll allows local artists to feature their merchandise for sale and to network, they also have a fashion show!

I wanted to try out a couple of trends I have seen lately but on the cheap, since that is how I do ;):

#1: Mixing prints, florals and stripes:


#2: Wearing denim on denim:


Here is what I decided to wear for the evening ;)

{F21 navy stripe shirt ($8.50), Dark denim vest (Ross: $3.99), Old Navy denim jacket (thrift store: $6.00), Mudd black denim leggings (Kohls $5.00), Floral print scarf (Target $1.24 CLEARANCE!!!), Envelope bag (Thrift store: $2.00), Super huge white plastic ring (Logan City Fair last summer: $3.00, Italian shoes (Plato's Closet: free with credit!)}

{If you want to be able to find good deals and still be on trend check out the tips that I mentioned HERE! also don't be afraid to check out your local thrift stores, discount chains such as: Ross, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls, and places like Forever 21 where they do offer on trend items at low prices!}


{Hotttt ;)}

{Ps: I decided to leave my hair wavy I like to call it my Carrie Bradshaw look ;)}

We did lots of browsing since we forgot to get some cash....we never have cash!

{Wanted that coral bracelet so friggin bad!!}

{This is where they hold the fashion show in a dry cleaners drive thru window!}

{Broadway Street where they all the artists set up shop.}

{I was super obsessed with my shoes they were a total find at Plato's Closet they were in mint condition and from Italy! They have a small square kitten heel, and reminded me of a pair of shoes I may find at Anthropologie! Love love love!}

What do you guys think of Weekend Wear? If you have any questions or comments on how to find good deals and be a fashionista please let me know I am always happy to help!!

The Fashion Stroll was so super fun if you live in the Salt Lake area be sure to catch the next stroll in the fall. Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, I know we will LOST FINALE BABY!!! Love, love.
