Lookbook 8.08

fashion August 16, 2018

If you know me, you know that I like to dress up… a lot. But, what does that actually look like in action? Picture me in a hole-in-the-wall bar that smells like stale Bud Light in a faux mink in 10 degree weather. Extra may not even be the word we have to use, but that’s just me.

Growing up, my mom would joke that sale racks gave me hives but, thankfully, my money sensibilities have kicked in since then. Granted, I’m still stan for my investment pieces, but I can’t describe in a safe-for-work fashion the things a good sale does for me.

So, in celebration of dressing up a lot this birthday month, Lookbook 8.08 is all about looking expensive AF for next to nothing.

We’ll start with bikinis…Processed with VSCO with p5 preset
