#brokeandbougie.

In keeping with my friends and my attempt to make a trending topic (on twitter that is), I’ve decided to give everyone some advice on how to be the best broke, yet bougie, person you can be. As followers of fashion, we all fall victim to bouginess at some point or another, and I’m here to let you know that just because you’re currently in a broke state doesn’t mean you have to give up on improving your closet. Here are five sure fire ways to be broke, yet remain the bougie being you have grown to become.

  1. Cruise you favorite stores for great deals and amazing sales. There’s always something hot on the clearance racks, so don’t be ashamed to poke your head around the ones in your favorite store. If you’re EXTRA bougie, just go online. No one sees you and will never truly know if you paid the retailed $300.00 or the discounted $45.00.
  2. Buy a few big name fashion magazines and tear out ads of clothes you’d wear. Go to your local forever 21, which sells the same designs for less, and get the look you want. If you’re EXTRA bougie, go to Macy’s or Dillard’s and get something with a little more quality but not too much higher of a price.
  3. Shop at local thrift stores and consignment shops. Rich people throw away things just because they have a loose thread or because they didn’t get to wear it before they gained lots of weight. If you’re EXTRA bougie, go to the places they consider “vintage” shops where you can tell others that you’re just trying to look a little more retro.
  4. Go raid a friend or family members closet. They’re bound to have something you’d love to pair with some of your favorite accessories. If they’re not willing to allow you anything, remind them whose idea it was to buy it in the first place. If you’re EXTRA bougie and borrowing clothes just isn’t for you, go in the back of your closet and wear some things you haven’t worn in a while. Make them look totally new by pairing them with things you’d never imagine to. That always works.
  5. Last. Go to your local consignment shop and sell them some of the things you don’t wear anymore in exchange for a store credit or even cash. Be sure to bring things in style and wearable. If you’re EXTRA bougie and wouldn’t dare sell any of your belongings for cash, GO GET A JOB!!! Spoiled freak.

Hope that this has been a little helpful for you guys struggling in these trying times. Best of luck to you all.

‘Tis the Day of Love.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine’s Day fashion lovers. As we all know today is the day to show love, but what we don’t always remember is that it’s not always just for our “better half”. Being that this year I don’t have that special someone to share this day with, I’ve decided to give love to my wardrobe. After watching Confessions of a Shopaholic last night I’ve gained a new found appreciation for my clothing and the fact that it’s all paid for, lol. But seriously, let us show a little love for the one thing that is ALWAYS there for us, FASHION. Whenever I’m down I have my clothes, or the purchase of more to cheer me up. Whenever I’m cold I have a nice sweater or jacket to warm me. Whenever I’m bored I have a new fashion show or fashion blog to check out. Lastly, whenever I don’t have a fresh haircut or i have bags under my eyes from not receiving enough sleep, I have a hat or a pair of sunglasses to make me look like a million bucks. Could your girlfriend or boyfriend do that?? Don’t think so. So let us show fashion a little love today.

Washington, D.C. Shopping??

Nana's

When it comes to shopping in DC, I am usually excited to go to Georgetown or Pentagon City Mall because of the large variety of nationwide fashion franchises. When in reality I love the idea of shopping at little boutiques allowing myself the chance to be a little more unique in what I own. A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I went walking down the famous U Street Corridor, here in Washington D.C. and I came a cross a couple of nice boutiques. Unfortunately, it’s nowhere I can shop because they both cater to the female shopper but I’m not here to write about things that only i can relate to.

First, there was moojoo ken, meaning unconditional in Japanese. Tucked away in a tiny row house on the corridor, moojoo ken offers everything from clothing to handbags to jewelry. With every moojoo ken original, there is in some way shape or form the inclusion of their exotic emblem tying each piece together. Here’s a look at there store and some of their products.

Next there was Nana, a store for the savvy shopper. Jackie Flanagan opened Nana in April 2003 with her grandmother in mind. Flanagan says her grandmother has such fashion smarts and she has always looked up to her grace and glamour. Out of the two, Nana was the more appealing to my eye being that I’m really into the unique yet sheek look on a female. Look for yourself.
