Neon Yellow

Hey everyone, hope everyone is doing good! We shall keep this post short and sweet. Anyways, this is another outfit post of something I wore to a friend's birthday party. It plays on the neon trend again, this time neon yellow. Yeah!

I really love the black sweater with the panels of sheer material, it allows for a great opportunity to layer items. I layered the neon yellow tank underneath it.

I also found these wrist reflectors that joggers use at night, however it matched perfectly with the neon tank top so I decided to wear it around my wrist during the day

Anyways, Until Next time

Winter Loving!

Hey Everyone, another outfit post!! Yeah! This one is a causal one, I usual wear stuff like this when I run my errands, my main thing is being comfortable.
Now, the weather here in the GTA has been snow free for awhile,  but this picture was taken during one of the few major snow falls we have had. And you know what, I forgot how beautiful everything can look except for the  roads when snow is covering it. 

Now, the highlight of the outfit is the jacket that I got from the thrift store for $34 (Talize). They were doing a 50% off sale and I scored big on this Miss Sixty, nearly new jacket.
Anyways, until next time,
Sincerely Miss J

Trend Alert: Neon: Fuchsia

Hey everyone, so I am back with a trend alert for spring 2012, now I dont often  pay close attention to trends, but I really like the neon trend thats coming up. Therefore,  this is a quick outfit of the day, I was going to wear  it this week to a semi formal event but I figured lets post it early in honor of Valentine's day. I personally don't celebrate it, but I thought why not.

Now, be prepared to see this trend even more in spring 2012 but you can easily start adding brights to your winter wardrobe now. You can do this by  incorporating other neon colours like neon greens or yellows into your outfits with accessories or clothing. I also changed my hair, which I am not really feeling but I guess I will have to just get use to it.

The whole cost of the outfit not including the coat and before taxes was under $ 50, take note that the heels are "GUESS"
On a sad note, I would like to say R.I.P Whitney Houston. She was an amazing singer. You shall be missed.

Outfit Information: Coat: Costa Blanca,  Shirt: thrifted, Skirt: dynamite, Heels: (Guess)- Guess warehouse sale, necklace: shop on Queen street.

$50-$100 Outfit Series: I see Plaid

        Hey everyone, greetings from the one and only miss J, I thought I would come back with another one of my personal outfits. Fristly, I want to thank all those who follow me, comment, or those who have shared my blog. Next, I realized that it was hard to follow my blog because  the " join this site bottom" was not visible. Well now it is, so if you wish to follow,please do. The bottom is now at the bottom.
My goal in 2012 is to share my blog with more people, and network with others. I'm naturally a very shy person when it comes to marketing myself , but I'm really trying to break out of it. So, look out for more sincerely miss j.

               Next, I wanted to address a comment that I received from a friend of friend. She stated that she loved my style and was inspired but could not afford to be fashionable. I will let you in on the advice I gave to her. My style is very inexpensive. I have too many bills, and potential investments to spend a lot of money on material goods. Therefore, I buy everything on sale, go to warehouse sales, or go thrifting. However, unless I really need it or really love it I will buy it at regular price. My main rule is if I can thrift it, I refuse to buy it at a regular store for more. The second thing is to be aware of your own personal style, body type, and to invest in basic pieces so you  can have strong foundations for your outfits.

Furthermore; I had an idea to introduce a series  where I will continue to add outfits but  at differnt price points to illustrate to you all, that being fashionable does not have to cost you an arm and an leg. It will consist of outifts from head to toe that are under $50, between $50-$100, and over $100.

Okay on to the outfit, This is the first outfit of the $50-$100 price point. I wore this one on a cold day with my winter jacket but I took it off for you all to see what I was wearing. The outfit, was comfortable and cold weather friendly. The items that I love are the black fur hat and the flat leather boots.

Now the key for the winter months and looking great is lots of layering. I love layering different textures, patterns, and colours. It gives more dimension to your outfits. 
Now on to the important stuff, the total spent from head to toe is $88.98 before taxes. Please keep in mind that the fur hat is Barts, the jeans are Miss Sixty, and the boots are leather. So, when you think about it the Miss Sixty Jeans brought at regular price already would add up to the total outfit price, so I am happy. Also many of the pieces that are found in the outfit can easily be reused over and over again to make other outfits

Outfit Information: hat (Barts) Style Sense, Scarf (Jack & Jones) warehouse sale, Plaid shirt: thrifted, Vest: Modestar, Jeans ( Miss Sixty): warehouse sale, Boots: thrifted, watch (xoxo) burlington coat factory
Until Next Time
Sincerely Miss J
