Vintage Style: Now and Then

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

I used to love thumbing through my family’s albums, filled with photos of Mom showing her amazing style from the 40’s and 50’s.  She was always so petite and feminine – two things I didn’t really inherit from her. 🙂  However, today’s version of that era gives me the opportunity to mix my love of black and gun metal gray with the sweetness of this lacy t-length dress from Macy’s, a steal for only $15!

Take advantage of the between-seasons clearance sales happening all over town!  I found these retro black leather Enzo Angiolini ankle strap pumps at Clothes Circuit in Dallas – they had gone down to $12, their final markdown price, about three months earlier.  Combine these with a few fabulous accessories, including my $13 Vera Wang “Simply Vera” line bag from Kohl’s, and we have a vintage look for A LOT less! 🙂

So Dahlings, what era do you find to be your fashion inspiration?

Welcome to a New Year – and MsMona.net!

Happy New Year from beautiful Dallas, Texas and welcome to MsMona.net, a blog with tips and tricks to discount shopping for the so NAUTE couture. 🙂

Now, let me preface this by saying I am absolutely not against couture shopping – some of my favorite stores carry the most gorgeous name brand pieces.  However, not everyone can afford boutique, or even some department store, pricing.  If it’s in your budget this year, fabulous!  If not, don’t worry – stick with me and you’ll look just as amazing!

Let’s start 2011 off right with a hearty “Congratulations” to our great city.  Check out this link:  Forbes names Dallas #2 in their list of Best U.S. Shopping Cities!

Rock on, Sisters! 🙂
