Use HIS closet.

 dude shirt? WHAT?

 dude shirt, oh yeah!

[Shirt: Polo by Ralph Lauren $80, Belt: A&F $10, Sandals: A&F $15, Leather satchel: Charlotte Reusse $15]

Sorry about my ugly face and not done hair, I had to do this post fast cause the weather outside had me worrying about tornadoes and my neighbor was definitely creeping on me. OK so I've been wanting to try this look for sometime now but my boyfriend is skinnier than me so all his shirts actually fit me. But lucky for ME he ordered this shirt online and it was too big on him. When I put it on it looked like a vintage night gown and made me kind of shapeless so I decided to throw on a braided leather belt as well to define my waist then coordinated with other leather accessories. The shirt is definitely masculine but when mixed together with such feminine pieces it looks very well put together. I'm not sure how this  would look with a printed shirt but if you're still hesitant on wearing a mens shirt as a dress you should probably just start out with a solid piece first. That way you can accessorize it without looking too tacky. Bright hues such as this one also don't make the look to bland, and look really well paired with leather.

 Excuse my child birthing hips please....

 Cheesy pose

pony tail, fuck yeah!
[top: Urban Outfitters, $10. Shorts: A&F, $15. Sandals: Urban Outfitters, $20. Bracelets: Mexico, 10 pesos.]

Yeah, yeah I know this isn't the most exciting outfit but I just bought the top this past weekend and was really excited to rant post about it! I actually wore these shorts and sandals with a Guess sweater this past weekend to walk around downtown Asheville, I was going for the "yeah its summer, I'm wearing a sweater, IDGAF." look but turns out it was hotter than Lucifer's cooch out there and I just couldn't stand that sweater anymore. So I went into UO looking for a flowy tank and instead fell in love with this top. The eagle makes me feel like I'm a modern day Pocahontas.
Denim shorts are going to be one of my go to pieces this summer that's a given, but sometimes they can be pricey. Soo, TIP Y'ALL: I worked at Abercrombie for like 9 months and you know those really cute shorts on the mannequin? Yeah, well most of the time they aren't originally shorts! We just got some discount jeans, cut them, folded them, and TA DA. People think they are the $60 ones and spend lots-o-money on them. Jeans are usually on sale in most stores during this time so go out and make your own shorts! That way you can also customize length to your liking !

I couldn't find this exact shirt on the UO website but the shirt is made by Sparkle & Fade and they have a bunch of flowy tops on sale HERE


Hey guys! I'm making this blog purely out of  boredom love for fashion! A lot of people are always surprised that my outfits are usually all bargain pieces that I find on sale, so I'm making this blog to show you all my tips, outfits and ideas that I piece together using my wardrobe. I'm actually really excited to be doing this since I've always read fashion blogs I'll now have one of my own and can finally comment and interact with other bloggers. Well I should probably introduce myself now that I'm done ranting.

My name is Jacqueline Barrera. I'm from Asheville, NC. I'm 19 going on 20 [birthday is August/14, wink wink.] I'm a student at Mars Hill College majoring in Social Work. I enjoy cooking, thrifiting, and photography. I don't really like make up that much mainly because if I honestly try and use it I end up looking like a psycho clown. But I do have a slight obsession with mascara and I enjoy trying different brands/types so let me know what you use!

On a completely different note, I have an awesome wardrobe .....too much of an awesome wardrobe actually so I want to do a giveaway ! I will do a giveaway every time I reach 50 more followers so tell your kids, tell your wife, tell your husband that i'm giving away fashion up in here!
