What I Wore: Slacks for the Office

In the office, I love to wear dresses. They’re easy to style, one piece, and are pretty inexpensive from Goodwill (under $10). However, sometimes I like to amp up the boss lady in me and rock a pair of business slacks with cute oxfords. A few weeks ago, I stopped into one of the local […]

Fashionisto Friday: Suited Up and Dapper

Based on what I’ve heard from my dad and twin brother, I know suits can be quite expensive. Ranging from $200-$1,000, these business apparel staples can easily break the bank.
