Sometimes, a look is about the look but more times than not it’s the accessories that take a look to the next level. That’s pretty much why I invest in unique and quirky footwear like these No 21 mules that I caught on sale. I can’t even tell you how many women and men a like stop me on the street to get the deets on these beauties. They were definitely worth the little over $200 that I paid for them. People may say that’s too much for a shoe, but I say you can spend $80 on 3 pair of mediocre shoes that will fall apart after a years wear, or you can save up and invest in a pair you will cherish and that will stand the test of time. Any outfit can be taken from basic to chic with a great shoe and fire flame emoji accessories. Would you believe me if I told you my actual outfit cost all of $38. Seriously this white flounce top was $12 and this awesome denim skirt was $26.
Speaking of great accessories, I am a huge fan of Sex and the City. Honestly that show, along with the movie Brown Sugar, played a large role in my desire to move to New York City and be a writer. Although I ended up being a physical therapist, I still get to write..right here. But back to SATC, I adored Carrie’s Carrie necklace. Hell that necklace spawned the name The Carrie Necklace and although I always wanted one I could never find the perfect one until recently when I was contacted by Onecklace.com. If you follow me on snapchat: Monroesteele you’ve already seen the amazing monogramed rings that I personalized from them, as well as my Carrie Necklaces. I’m super excited to have this necklace in silver as well as in gold. I’ve been rocking them nonstop.
It’s the little details like this necklace and these shoes that really make the look. So it’s definitely worth investing in chic accessories, so even when it feels like you have nothing to wear, you can still look good.
