WWW: Shopping on a Dime

shopping on a dime

Shopping on a dime is easy to do especially when you’re shopping at Target

I just love Target’s WhoWhatWear Collection so much that I’m giving Target my money once a week. I’ve already done a post wearing one of their skirts from their collection and I’m back at it again like I never left. I love shopping on a dime and this collections allows me to do so and still have money for food afterwards. Don’t get me wrong, I love a great expensive piece but right now, I can’t afford to have every item of clothing be Chanel or YSL. So, I love to mix one high-end piece with some reasonably priced pieces. This look and this post is about looking good while shopping on a dime, and I want to show you ways to reinvent pieces and stretch your wardrobe and wallet a bit further.

When my fellow fashion blogger Flyygirlfashions asked to collaborate with me on a holiday look, I knew I wanted to incorporate the Whowhatwear collection from Target. The motto of this collection is to sell street-trendy clothes without your wallet paying for it months later. They have an array of gorgeous items including plus-size clothing. I ran to my local target and picked up a trendy ruffle top blouse and their women’s tie skirt. I put a gorgeous red Calvin Klein blazer dress over the look and finished it off with black tube socks and a patent leather two-tone booties. The two pieces from the Whowhatwear collection cost me under $40.00 and the good thing is I can always mix and match the pieces with other items in my closet. I told you looking good and shopping on a dime can actually have you looking like a trillion dollars.

My one rule for shopping on a dime is to always buy items that you can see yourself mixing with other items in your closet. Shopping on a dime will have learning how to reinvent every single thing in your closet (LOL). As a blogger, I don’t have money to waste on clothes every single shoot so I improvise and think of new ways to use what I already have. Like I said before, this overcoat is actually a dress that I was able to reuse in a different way. These two pieces from Target’s Whowhatwear collection are awesome because I can reuse them over and over again with other pieces from my collection. I plan on using the ruffle blouse as an undershirt on a pair of overalls that I just bought and the skirt will be reworn with a black turtleneck and thigh-high boots. So, remember to buy pieces you can see yourself wearing more than one way.

Shopping on a dime is a win-win because you save money and you look good and what kind of person wouldn’t like those odds? Take time out and visit Target to take a look at their Whowhatwear collection today.

I love the way that Flyygirlfashions styled her Whowhatwear Frock coat with a pair of crushed velvet boots, plum pants, black turtleneck and a wide-brim hat. Her look is elevated street chic and I love the play of different colors and textures. Check her out on Instagram at Flyygirlfashions

On Target

“Fashion is who you are wearing, Style is how you wear it”

Okay, So I follow a lot of bloggers who have a lot of money or collaborate with a lot of high-end fashion designers. Everything they wear cost more than my college tuition…I mean labels to the GAWDS. Now, I definitely cannot keep up with them when it comes to high-end items but I can make any item I buy look high-end. FYI this is what style is all about. I respect those who can make thrift store finds and bargain clothes look like a million bucks. To me, style does not equate money…it transcends money. 

Today’s blog is very special because I’ve teamed up with two other bloggers to style one item from Target’s “WhoWhatWear” collection. One thing I love about Target is that they always do collaboration with great high-end designers. This one launched January 31, 2016 and is based off current fashion trends and user/blogger feedback. The pieces are all under $50.00 and y’all, they are gorgeous. I am collaborating with blogger KD Harris of “Wear to Feast” and Dani Gee of “Danigee25” for this collection. We will be doing a GIVEAWAY soon.


We each paired our favorite item from the collection with something already in our wardrobe to show you how to wear the pieces and how to style on a budget. I purchased the ruffle wrap skirt in a size 4 *coughs…too small* but it’s on sale right now for $20.00. I paired it with an Ankara top, and my all time favorite pair of heels. My bag is thrifted but I found the coveted bamboo bag on Amazon for under $25.00 (you’re welcome).

KD styled her layered ruffle mini dress with a yellow clutch and black flats. This look is just so comfortable and great for a day date. Read and shop this look HERE. Dani Gee styled her colorful ruffle top with a pair of jeans and and strapped flats. Read and shop this look HERE. You can also find these awesome bloggers on IG: Weartofeast and Danigeelk    

Let me know your thoughts on the WhoWhatWear collection. Have you ever bought anything from that collection before and if so, how did you like it. FYI this top will be part of a collection me and a team are working on, so make sure you’re following me on Instagram, Facebook and subscribe to my newsletter for updates. For collaborations, please email me at houseofodarablog@gmail.com

Love you.Mean it

LoveDay Fly

Valentine Day is 5 days away.

For me, it’s all about the outfits. I tried and tried to get my hubby to do a post with me for Valentine Day but he wasn’t having it…LOL. He’s not about the blogging life. But, I did do a great post that I can’t wait to share with you all. I want to share some affordable and cute styles for you and your significant other for you v-day. Everything here will be wallet-friendly because you don’t have to splurge to look like a million dollars.

I hope this helps you in finding something perfect for your valentine day look. Don’t forget to try other styles like a jumpsuit or even a skirt. Whatever feels good to you and looks great on you, try it out.

Here is a look at how I would dress my husband if he would allow me to…LOL. But he has such great style already, I can’t complain. I love this monochromatic look:

Does your husband or boyfriend let you dress them for special occasions? So, would you dress him in this look? I like it because it’s so clean and crisp and would tone down the bright reds and pinks that I would definitely be wearing.

I can’t wait to hear from you all about your V-day plans and what you plan on wearing.

Don’t forget about the All-red look I did at the beginning of the month. Check it out and scroll all the way to the bottom for the links for the look: Hello February

 

I hope this helped you in some way. Keep being fashionable. Love you. Mean it!
