The Texturizer!!

Let us texturize, shall we?  We are not texturizing our hair, rather we are mixing different fabrics! Since this is a new venture for me, I played with the traditional hard and soft contrast. For my hard I wore my faux leather leggings from H&M and for my softer side, I wore my velour
 blazer.  I purchased my blazer from Park Avenue Thrift Store for $7.57, but received half off since I had a 50% off coupon. My floral printed shirt was thrifted from Park Avenue Outlet. As oddly as it sounds Park Ave, a thrift store, has an outlet store with extremely lower prices. My navy, floral shirt was less than $2.  So a quick background,depending on what day of the week you shop at Park Ave Outlet, nothing costs over $2. Monday everything in the store could only cost .75, but on Friday everything could only cost $1.25. Now back to my outfit!  My $3.93 earrings were found at the popular Goodwill. I added my crown brooch as a $3.53 signature touch, also from Goodwill. I wanted to keep the look dark and in the same color family. However, it would not have been right if I didn't add a pop of color.  My bright yellowish/lime hat was the perfect pop to act as a contrast to the dark side.

Photo Cred to my bestie Brooke for standing out in the freezing cold to take my pictures! xoxo
