Happy Friday, Penny Darlings!
It’s a rainy and dreary day here in Pennsylvania! And the apartment across the hall moved out and they cleaned the carpets and the carpet cleaning solution STINKS to high heavens. So I have every freaking candle in my house lit, all the windows open, and the fan going and I’m still fighting a migraine. Yuck!
But, generally, it’s going to be a fabulous weekend! Preston and I have an exciting weekend planned and I can’t wait to share more about it on my stories!
I also celebrated my two year blogiversary on Wednesday and I’m doing an awesome giveaway on my Instagram page! It closes tonight (3/2) at midnight!
But wait, what else? Hmm, blah, blah, blah, – check me out on Instagram here! I also started a Twitter account! Find that here! Follow Preston’s brand new fashion Instagram here! I also have a selling Instagram page where I sell some of my old clothes/styles so that I don’t drown in my own wardrobe. I just listed a few new things – so check that out!
Today I decided to do one of my favorite types of posts: one thing three ways! I think everything in your wardrobe should be able to play double (or triple) duty in styling and purpose! And I recently got this AMAZING jumpsuit from Leota! I wanted to show you three ways that I styled it!
One Thing: Three Ways
So, first – my base piece is this gray leopard jumpsuit from Leota! I typically wear a 26/28 – but I’m wearing their 3L because this item has TONS of stretch! I’m also 5’5 and this was only a little too long but not TOO long!
Style One: Celebrity Incognito
I styled this look for a day in NYC or a night out at a fancy club!
I started with a pair of standard black heels! I like to shop my shoes at Zappos because they have a HUGE selection of WW shoes! Here’s some cute dupes of my heels!
I also got this red bow purse from DSW – but it’s not for sale anymore so I found this AMAZING Betsey Johnson dupe on Amazon!
I followed it up with my (brand new) prescription sunglasses! You can dupe these red sunnies (non-prescription!) here!
Style Two: Daytime Cute
For this casual look, I knew I wanted it to have some added cute elements!
I started by pairing this mouse purse from Charming Charlie (I thought it would compliment the leopard well!) for a quirky element.
I also paired it with my favorite cat earmuffs (originally from Kohl’s!) but I found near EXACT dupes at Jet.com – so check those out here!
Style Three: Let’s Go to the Disco!
I would style this for a night out dancing with the girls, to a late night party, or to a bar. Now let’s say I did more than two of those things – and that’s where I’d wear it!
I first started by twisting my hair into an up-do! I think sweeping hair into an updo is a five minute way to jazz up your look! I achieved this look with one of those claw hair clips and a few bobby pins in under five minutes! If you want a hair tutorial – let me know!
I also paired it with a glittery gold vintage clutch (perfect for phone, lipstick, money, and a hair tie – which is the ‘going out’ starter pack). I found this at a thrift store and paid a buck for it! I wouldn’t take an expensive purse out to a bar!
I finished it with a pair of kitten heels (perfect for dancing & looking cute AF!).
