Fab Finds: New Year's 2019 Looks and Beyond

Formal season was one for the books this year. Two award shows, one gala and one black tie wedding left me looking at countless options for options for attire as well as potentially breaking the budget if I didn’t plan correctly. With event attendance, travel, and everything else I do being a savvy shopper is a top priority to stay in budget and purchase pieces that I can save and rewear as well as pass down to my younger cousins.

Luckily my friend Symphony is an amazing shopper and we both love a good budget friendly outfit! She is a true believer in “never pay full price for fabulous” and sticking to high quality but low cost items to fill her closet. Understanding that the holidays, NYE, and other events are coming up we don’t want you to break the bank while looking bomb. Check out some budget friendly outfits below as well some pieces to pick and choose from to slay but save.


Going against the traditional black dress grain, move for a bold yet affordable suit. Although on closer end to the $100 budget you can pair with a simple pair of shoes you already own. Grab a pair of statement earrings and a simple clutch to complete the look.

When In Doubt, Just Throw Sequins On

Sequins are always in high demand in our book but they have been especially been in the spotlight over the last few months. The body-con style skirt is one that will fit to any occasion. Because of the skirt being the main attraction you don’t have to do too much to shine. A pop of color shoe can take it to the next level.
