Whenever there is an event I plan to attend, my mind automatically goes to the famous question “What do I wear”? I prefer to know ahead of time for events, that way I can plan accordingly for my outfits, babysitters, and other stress factors that I can eliminate.
This week I was excited to hear that @MagicCityFashionWeek was hosting an event for designers. There was an event hosted for bloggers on last Wednesday that I had to forfeit due to motherly duties, so once I got word about this week event and I saw my schedule was clear I jumped on outfit ideas.. After planning for a birthday party and back to school my coins are pretty tight so I knew I needed to mix and match clothes from my closet and if buying something was an option, it would have to be in a $20 budget.. Well guess what people?!!? I beat that $20 limit by $16.50 let me tell you how.
I always admired the Gucci mule slippers and I never got around to buying a pair nor were they in my budget, although the Gucci’s were never an option for me I wanted the knock off version. I went on a venture to the local thrift store in hopes of finding a pair of mules but there weren’t any, a plus is I found a camouflage jacket but that’s a post for another day! Went next door to Citi Trends and BOOM! A size 8.5 was there waiting on mama(me), but wait there’s more….the mules were marked down to $3.50. In my mind nothing else was needed, this was a blessing for me and surely I had something in that closet of mine I could match up.
My mule slippers aren’t Gucci branded but they were fashionable and cost efficient. I used the money I saved from these shoes to purchase a Baron’s game ticket and support the black business of Tot Spot with friends.
