Staple pieces for men/ Ralph Lauren Polo Windbreaker

Hello Gentlemen,

It is important to have a few staple pieces in your closet. Women have staple pieces, the typical "black cocktail dress" is a must have for women. Below you will see a few staple pieces for men. You might have to spend a bit more money, but remember style is not cheap and the quality and long term use will be beneficial. Most of the these trends will not go out of style, and your money will be well spent, as you easily incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe.

Spoon Rings

Spoon rings are an old and new trend, kind of like an oldy but goodie!!!! Spoon rings have once again made the fashion list. Actually any piece of old jewelry is in. The spoon ring in this picture was my mother's ring. Next time you see family, ask them if they have any old jewelry. They might have items they would never wear, but you would love to wear. Maybe you even have some yourself. Dig through your past jewelry and see if you might want to wear it now. Another trend is to wear a ring around a necklace. If you find your father's or grandfather's class ring etc. put it on a necklace and wear it as a piece of jewelry. It will be a statement and piece that will start conversation. Make jewelry personal.

You could be the first to start a trend for the future. Someday down the road your children or grandchildren might want to wear your spoon ring.

Hot Trend, Boyfriend Watch

Hey Ladies,

A hot new trend is to wear an oversized watch. It's called the "Boyfriend Watch". Find an oversized watch (does not need to be expensive) and throw it on. It's a statement and it gives off the impression that you have style, but you didn't try too hard.

Vintage Jewelry at the Alameda Flea Market

Alameda Flea Market;
If you live in Northern California, you’ve probably heard of the Alameda Flea Market. It’s open the first Sunday of every month. Recently, my co-worker bought this fabulous piece of vintage jewelry from the market. It was under $25.00. The item can be worn as a necklace or a boorch. Please see pictures. If you buy or own a piece of jewelry similiar, make sure you style it with a simple top. My co-worker styled it with a white button down. It looked fabulous!

Hello Fashionista,

Today is my first day of blogging. This blog will present you with fashion trends, tips and new ways to style yourself on an affordable budget. You will learn the latest fashion trends, find good deals and most important you will feel good about who you are.

Today I will share with you two recent pieces I found at a garage sale and vintage shop. Vintage shops are the best, especially if you can recognize trends and brand names. It is important to look at items and think how you could bring them up to date. The best thing about vintage clothing/jewelry is typically you will only find one of each item, which means you will be the only one to have the treasure. It's like finding the treasure in the treasure hunt.

This past weekend I bought a dress for under $20.00. Today I am wearing it and I can't explain how compliments I have already received. Pictures will be posted later. The good thing about a vintage dress, is typically they are one of a kind. Nobody else will be able to find the exact same one. The dress I bought came with a different belt. You will need to be able to bring it up to date. For example the belt it came with, was small and thin. I accessorized the dress with a thicker black belt. I could now use the original belt for a headband. Please see pictures.

A couple of weeks ago I found this fantastic old bracelet at a garage sale. The lady wanted $5.00 and I asked if she would take $3.00. A garage sale is the best time to bargain. Try to bargain, but be polite and make sure you are being reasonable!

Old jewelry and vintage dresses are in style. Have you found any vintage dresses or jewelry lately?
