Well, here it is, 2 days before school is to start and I finally know what I'm going to wear... I decided on a blue Gap V-Neck (on sale) and I will pair it with the Material Girl belt I just bought at Macy's for $15. I will wear my tried and true frilly black skirt from the thrift store that I have had forever and black socks with my black ankle boots that have silver studs on them. I wore those boots everyday trekking around New York. They are from the Nordstrom Rack and are normally $165 but I got them for $42!!! I will top the look off with my awesome Jordace jean jacket from the 80s it is acid washed and has bows coming up the back. As for jewels--- I decided on a multistrand pearl necklace from Forever 21. It was $7.80 and it instantly dresses up a plain t-shirt. However you girls want to dress it up or dress it down for your first day make sure that you feel like a million bucks. Who's kidding, you know you will. Happy Shopping to all!!! Here are some pieces to my look with the prices.

Hi everyone! I have had tons of icons but one of my all time favorites is Brigitte Bardot because she was one of the 60s icons. She sported the beehive like no other and her style has gone on to inspire runway looks and hollywood stars alike. I love her style because it was one word. Classic but with an edge....What's best is that thrift stores have so many pieces for one to recreate her closet. Her poise was part of her class. Her clothes were timeless and when you think of 60s bombshells you automatically think of Brigitte Bardot. She was so multifaceted when it came to her appearance. She could be classic and elegant one minute and high fashion "don't mess with me" the next. She was French, flawless and fabulous every day 24/7 and she set the ground for generations to come.

My Mom made this Fashionable Bride costume. She bought a vintage old wedding dress, soaked it in black dye so it would get that "old" look. She quickly rinsed it so it would not totally dye all the way. I worked at a haunted house for charity and we stained it with fake blood...I also found an old wig at the thrift shop. My total costume was like $8.00.
