“Dress how you want to be addressed”

So, I love a gorgeous, well-dressed woman. Yes, I am that chick that stares at other pretty girls from across the room. I’m always envying someone’s bag, dress or shoes….sigh, who else is like me? It’s not jealousy, just admiration. Well, I have a blog and now I can have those gorgeously dressed women on my blog and give them the credit they deserve while stealing all their looks as well…(bahahahaha). Today, I am profiling the ever gorgeous, long-legged, stylish Courtney Pettway. This girl can dress y’all, and for all my tall girls, this is for you. So, here she goes….

We have all heard that saying, and it’s one that I live by. I truly believe that it is possible to dress fashionably and make a statement without breaking the bank. Majority of these looks didn’t even cost me more than 50 bucks! My fashion tip: don’t always go by the ‘brand’; just because it may hold a popular brand name does not mean it’s quality and just because it’s not a popular ‘brand’ doesn’t mean that the quality is cheap! So whether you are shopping at Nordstrom, a high-end boutique, Goodwill, or other second-hand store, go for quality pieces at a reasonable price (within YOUR budget).

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of my favorite go-to pieces are blazers. Why? Because you can wear them with literally anything, anywhere, and anytime of day. I found these awesome, pink high-waisted pants BRAND NEW and tagged at $100.00… Did I pay that? Absolutely not lol. I purchased them from a local thrift store in Louisville, had them tailored (making MY total a whopping $15 ) paired them with a patterned blazer (which I caught on sale), with black heels, and a black fitted tank.

Pants: Goodwill

Blazer: Banana Republic

Tank: Ross

Heels: Just Fab

Purse: Steve Madden

Perfect for a casual date night (nothing fancy). I love off the shoulder EVERYTHING, so when I saw this shirt I immediately grabbed it. I paired this with a forest green mini skirt, camel-colored sandals , my other favorite accessory (aviators) and one of my favorite bags.

 

Shirt: Ross

Skirt: Target

Shoes : Jessica Simpson

Bag: Michael Kors

 

I received soooo many compliments on this jumper at a recent wedding. I immediately fell in love with it and could NOT wait to wear it!

 

Jumper: HHHGluxe

Pink crossbody: Ross

Neutral Heels: BCBG

 

 

 

 

Did I tell you that I love bold colors and patterns? Oh, and here is yet another blazer lol.

 

Blazer: Thrift store

Tank: Ross

Shorts: Calvin Klein (From Platos)

Strappy sandals: Just Fab

 

So I was told yellow is my color, and I would have to agree! This was a perfect summer look!

 

Shirt: Ross

Shorts: Forever21

Sandals & Fringe crossbody: Ross (Do you see a pattern? Haha. Ross is definitely one of my favorite stores).

 

 

 

My other favorite accessory is..hats. Whether it’s a wide brim, fedora, snapback or fitted cap, I will rock them all and pair them with just about everything.

 

Fedora: Amazon

Shirt: Boohoo

Skinny Jeans: Missguided

Sandals: Target

 

 

 

 

Ironically, these looks are not only inexpensive, but most of the pieces are also several years old! This just goes to show you that it is possible to buy quality pieces that are not only budget friendly, but will last throughout ever-changing fashion trends!

    So I am one of those tall girls who sometimes doesn’t know what looks good. I really loved all the looks by Courtney. Can’t wait to see if I can steal some of these works for myself 😉
