Fashion Friday: Look for Less with Rue 21

Happy Fashion Friday, y'all!!

The lovely Tabitha and I have incorporated the fun and entertaining (at least to us!) Fashion Friday into our businesses. I polled my fans in my VIP Customer group and on my Facebook page to see which look they wanted me to recreate.

And hands down, Number 2 was the favorite!

We chose Rue 21 to choose our affordable pieces and that was a great choice! When I think of Rue 21, I think of bootie shorts and crop tops . . . and you know what? They totally had those!  But they also had maxi dresses and maxi skirts and skinny jeans (that would even fit over my mama hips!) and some really cute tops that I can't wait to wear this spring! My favorite thing about this store?? The prices!! Oh my, the prices were right up my frugal alley!

So, here's the way that I interpreted the look in two slightly different ways.

All clothes and shoes: Rue 21
Jewelry: Plunder Designs

I pulled the color turquoise from this look, flipped it and wore it on the bottom. =) See, the one problem with stores that are geared for the younger generation? The shorts are a tad too short for this mama! But these skinny jeggings, especially when cropped, fit my style to a tee! From what I could tell from the colors and designs, nautical is going to be a big trend again this spring, which makes my anchor loving heart very happy.

My Chic in Pink lipstick that was in my Stylebox saved the day and kept my little ole lips from fading into my ghostly pale face. And these Nautical jams??? Kinda perfect, right?

I'm loving my Plunder jewelry!! These fabulous mint earrings and gorgeous necklace are going to steal the show in Cancun! (Oh, yeah... I totally forgot to tell you guys that Jamberry is sending me to Cancun! Wha- what?? More on that later!)

When I wear jeggings, I'm always careful to wear a longer shirt that covers up my booty a bit. Nobody wants to see all that.

And finally, you get an almost exact flip of the outfit that inspired the look. White on top, turquoise on bottom, with a pop of coral on the feet.

And for the perfectly feminine second interpretation, I'd say Chamelionaire. I mean, the corals and blues with that sparkly silver?? Perfect!

Which of the two looks would you actually wear? The nautical one or the feminine one?
