Es Sobre El Mo (It’s About The Mo)

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

Sometimes it has to be all about you!  Confidence is key, especially when I’m out marketing our photography business around town.  Photography is fun, colorful and creative, so I often try to reveal my passion for this art form through wardrobe style. 🙂

Completely enthralled with this red furry Macy’s jacket (only $31.70 with a coupon and huge discount) and my very fav ripped jeans from Target!  Did you notice the crazy cute $5.00 clearance T from Walmart?  “SELF LOVE” is imperative for a happy and successful life.  I admit it – I do love Me, but I absolutely adore each of these amazing ladies! 🙂 Being around them is so uplifting and such a blessing!

First it was Cookie Monster, and now ELMO! 🙂 Are there any other fuzzy Sesame Street characters I should take my fashion cues from?!   He he he!

Fabulous BOOT Find!

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

Does MsMona LOVE boots?  Absolutely!  But what’s a girl with dancer calves to do when all the cutie pie footwear are made for teeny tiny (aka “average”) legs?!  Try ’em on anyway, because you never know! 🙂

So, I first glanced over these amazing Steve Madden boots at Ross.  I really liked the gray/black distressed combination with the royal blue zipper – super unique!  When I saw a similar version at Macy’s, sans buckle at the bottom, I couldn’t believe the difference in price.  That was it, I was Ross bound once again!  But would they zip up?  Yeah Baby!  Oh, and the brown/red zipper combo fit just fine, too…

How does that saying go?  If the BOOT fits…buy it in every color! 🙂

By the way, just call me “Cookie Monster” – this sweet I.N.C. faux fur was a clearance buy at Macy’s.  Remember to take advantage of those “Extra $10 off” opportunities by signing up for online newsletters and special ads!

Is This Weather Fur Real?!

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

What I love about Texas are the seasons I didn’t get to experience in California.  However, when it turns from the 80’s, down 30 degrees, then back again, it can be crazy on the health and completely unreliable…

So what CAN I depend upon?  My collection of faux fur jackets, of course!  Check out this $9.99 beauty from Goodwill – tossed it over a turtleneck and jeans, and I was ready to meet up with my friend, Mimi, at her ribbon cutting.  Super easy, extremely cozy! 🙂

What are you doing to stay warm and healthy during this topsy-turvy forecast?

Great Mindz

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

I promise:  we didn’t call each other! 🙂  But instead of catching more Z’s, looks like we were all up choosing our favorite zebra-print fashions for the day!

The great thing about black & white is that this duo is a classic – pair it with ANY color and you’ve got yourself a fabulous outfit any time!  Since it was cold enough to wear my (new with tags) $16.00 fuzzy resale find, I went with simple black pieces underneath and a splash of fuchsia.  For a safari-themed luncheon, I added faux fur slingbacks and a printed purse to this patent-trimmed trenchcoat, a crazy $15.00 Macy’s clearance buy!

When was the last time you and your palz had a matching mind moment? 🙂

Go Green & Get Glam at Goodwill

Author: msmona  //  Category: Tips

You know when you find something so phenomenal, and even when it doesn’t fit, it’s such a great deal you just want someone to take it home? 🙂  OMG, check this out!

It was too small for Ms. Moi, but when the lovely lady in front of me said, “I need to shop where you do!”, I knew this faux fur admirer and I would be friends forever. 🙂  Only $25.00 for a beautiful black coat while saving the environment?  You go Glamour Girl!

Have you used charity thrift stores to recycle from your closet?
