Real Style on a Dime

While attending a bloggers event during Social Media Week (more on that tomorrow), I bumped into Ms. Joy Adaeze, image consultant and stylist. Before I even asked her name I said, “I wish I had my camera so I could take a picture of you!” I just loved her style. And when she told me her fashionable finds were all cheap chic options, I was in love. Luckily, Joy sent me a picture of her outfit and a breakdown of where she scored her look for less.

Here’s what Joy had to say about her look and her overall sense of style.

To me, living fly on a dime means looking fabulous without having to spend a lot of money. I’m an image consultant and I always tell my clients that it isn’t how much you spend, it’s how you put your outfit together. There are so many quality pieces you can find for affordable prices! I know this well because I live it! I look like a million bucks, but spend way less : ) My clients appreciate that I am able to have them looking amazing for great prices. I love vintage stores and scoring hot deals at sales.

4-1-1 on my Outfit:
Blazer: Vintage, $10
Blouse: Forever 21, $20
Lace Pants: H&M, on sale for $20
Belt: Salvation Army, $2
Necklace: Vintage, $10
Scarf: H&M, $7
Boots: Payless, $35
These are definitely a fab find, since they are from Payless and are made of surprisingly good quality…I’ve had them for almost 3 years.
Lace Gloves: Party City, $4
They were part of my Halloween outfit in 2005. I was a black cat!
Gold Bracelets: Pink Apple, $2/each
Pink Apple is a small costume jewelry store in Paterson, NJ.
Clutch: Forever 21, $15

Love it!

  1. Yes, I gotta second that. The lace leggings are hot. I don’t think I’d ever try lace leggings but they clearly work…or at least on Joy
