Style Steal: Rip, Rock, & Roll

Hi. My name is Jen Clyde and I like ripped-up tee’s. Sorry not sorry! When my t-shirt is slightly ripped up I feel way edgy and chic. I hate being bored and now that the distressed look is so hot right now I never have to wear a boring t-shirt ever again! Ok I just discovered this amazing website SINGER22.com. Today’s style steal is from this site and it’s the LnA Oversized Trashed Tee and it was originally $90 but it’s been marked down 40% off to just $50 bucks! Comes in 4 different colors and is rocked by Miss Miley Cyrus herself. Check it.

I’m obsessed with textures and this is the perfect way to do it because the rips add an insta-element to your look! Plus this shirt is great to layer over a simple tank or under a vintage jean jacket or just by itself. Versatile is always the way to go!

PS if you love this look, check out my cute client Bachelor Pad 2 star Michelle Money’s tutorial from her youtube channel MMandLShow to learn how to make your edgy chic ripped-up tee!

Now go rock this day, rock this look, and rock on sister.

Cheers!

Thrifty Thursday: Bringing sexy back

So in just 12 really short days is valentines day so we must shop early to make sure that we are ready!!! Today I found the perfect deal to get you started in putting together your perfect Valentine’s look. I know some people view Valentines day as Single Awareness Day but i’ve always preferred viewing it as Sexy Awareness Day! So maybe that’s a little risque….or even worse, cliche….but I don’t even care because hello it’s the most romantic day of the entire year! It’s all about love and romance and getting fancy and this dress is totally going to make you bring sexy back…literally! I found it on TopShop.com. It’s called the Ribbed Heart Back Prom Dress and it’s on sale for 50% off!!! It used to be $110.00 but buy it right now for just $55!

This dress is amazing because the standard ‘little black dress’ look of the front really keeps it classy but the adorable cut outs on the back just made me die. It really takes the whole ‘business in the front, party in the back’ thing to a whole new level with a giant cut out heart! Plus it playfully shows the perfect amount of skin to make you look and feel so beautiful.

So don’t curse valentines day. Love it. Embrace it. Get dressed up. Feel fancy. Feel sexy. Take time to love the people around you and also take time to LOVE YOU! This Valentines Day, don’t wear your heart on your sleeve…..but wear it on your back instead.

Cheers!

Thrifty Thursday: Kray for Kimono

and by ‘kray’ I mean KRAZY of course! Seriously though, I am crazy about this kimono I saw on Free People. This time of year it’s really hard to shop  because you don’t want to waste your money on wintery clothes you can only wear for a few more months of cold but then you don’t want to buy summer clothes that you are going to have to wait forever till you can wear. So, during this time I like to find pieces that I can wear both now and later. Get more bang for my buck if you know what im saying!

Ok so back to my kimono craze! This is from Free People and it’s called the Parisian Print Kimono. It was originally $128.00 but it’s been marked down 70% off and is now only $39.95. The colors in this kimono are gorgeous. The dark background gives it a more fall & wintery feel, but the offset, bright colored florals give you the ok to rock this in spring & summer too. Honestly you are going to wear it all year round.

Right now while you are are waiting for the cold to go away, wear this kimono as pictured above: with leggings and boots. But when warm comes again, lose the leggings for legs and switch out the riding boots for some strappy sandals. And if you want a fancier look, don’t be afraid to layer it on top of a skirt or dress….the layers of flowy will look super pretty and compliment each other if you tie it all together with the right belt!

P.S. Not only is the Parisian Print Kimono accommodating to different seasons, it also comes in red floral! So darling.

I’m really excited to tell you about my second favorite form of necking…..i’m referring to necklaces btw! Ok so I saw this gorgeous necklace on the Free People website. It’s called the Ombre Fringe & Chain Necklace and it’s been marked down 70%. It used to be $98.00 but it’s on sale for only $29.85!!!!! Can you say steal?!
