Denim Statements

Having a mini girls night out last Friday, I swung by Simply Smashing Boutique for the Lotus Premium Denim Lounge. Loving not only the quality of the product but what the brand stands for as well, I must say, I have never owned a pair of straight leg jeans, sans alterations, that have fit, my 5 inch self, any better. Thinking up an ensemble, I wanted to pair them with some affordable, but chic, duds that would highlight the fit and wash. Both of which are key elements that make the right pair of designer denim a splurge-worthy wardrobe item. Thus I went with two, key, bargain, statement pieces, for statement pieces, at any price, are a great way to dress-up denim. From  H&M, I threw on a gold sweater that I found last week, for a steal, at only $10 dollars. Au Payless BOGO, I completed the look with a fab pair of color block heels, which cost $35 dollars original price, only $15 dollars after BOGO savings. Moi BOGO? Yes! Funny story, a couple Saturday's ago I went to my local mall to return some shirts and, the true savings seeker I am, I wandered into Payless to peak at what they were carrying for Spring. Making my way to the size 5 isle, tiny feet running in the family and all, I literally bumped into my mom who was browsing, while my dad was looking for his pair of small black shoes (when I say small, I mean "I fit into my dad's socks" small). Long story short, my 27 year-old self had a 13 year-old moment, and my sweet dad insisted on buying me my pair of color block heels via BOGO deal. Thus from deals to denim, the perfect pair of designer jeans can certainly take fab frugal finds to the next style level.
