Wedding Season

So I had my daughter four years almost five years ago and now me and her father are getting married. It’s exciting and I’ve been of course shopping for my dress, shoes, veil ect. I don’t want to post any pictures yet but I have been finding some great deals and ways to have a wedding on a budget. I will post pictures of my whole wedding look and the retailers that I bought them from. Since I’m still waiting orders to come in I thought I would at least list the retailers and links to looks that say bridal. I also was able to do my bridal look from top to bottom under $200. Remember you don’t have to do the traditional bridal store experience. I found my dress at a retailer that you wouldn’t have even thought of…..

Bridal look from Head to Toe:

1. Dress: I couldn’t find my exact dress on the site since I bought it in store but here is one similar and would be great for a Summer Wedding.

Floral Faux Leather Applique Dress:

white dress

$27.90(This was the price I paid for my dress!)

*Add a belt with bling or a ribbon sash that matches your wedding colors and you have a moden bridal look*

2. Shoes: These are those shoes I actually ordered. I LOVE them and I love that I found them in my size. I wear a 10.5 so it’s not easy finding cute shoes in my size at a great price. Miracles really do come true!

Guest Blogger: Diane Mateo

I’ve invited a guest blogger to come and giver her advice on some great fashion finds. She is also a fashion student and a mother to top it off.

So, as know as women, we all love to find a deal and the best way to find those deals is by talking to other women. Sometimes it’s faster to ask a friend where to find the latest and greatest sales than it would take to Google it. I love to tell even random people where they can get a great bargain and not feel broke at the end of the day. So back to the guest blogger, here is a little bit about her and her finds:

My name is Diane Mateo and I am a native New Yorker. After travelling and dancing for ballet companies, you develop an “eye” for beauty and style. Being a performance artist helps develop my love for all kinds of art. This affinity for art includes fashion, music, photography, art, illustration, and writing. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and a fashion student. Check out my blog: Globalstyleeye.wordpress.com

 

9 FAB SUMMER FINDS UNDER $50.

Summertime is the perfect excuse to try a little something new. And the rising temperatures will not stop this Fab Mom from looking chic and well put together for even the most tiresome errands. I set out on a mission to find the perfect outfit that would not break the bank. The minimalist in me wanted to do it with five stylish, laid-back pieces. And each piece would not go over $50 bucks. Transitioning from day to evening should be a smooth transition. I just added a few bonus pieces to take you out on the town. And every Fab Mom looks forward to a Date Night.
