Seen In Action- Forever 21 Abstract Mini $15.80

I discovered my next seen in action on Chictopia. A user by the name of Playingwithfire created a great fall look with the abstract mini from Forever 21. A peep toe shoe is great to transition from summer to fall with some knee high stocking as pictured below. This is a great play on conservative/sexy. The skirt from Forever 21 is only $15.80. It is not available in black and white anymore.

Frugal Tip Monday-Take a Closet Inventory for Fall

fall seasonLadies fall is here. September 22nd was the first official day of the fall season. It's time to store away those summer florals. What a shame :(

Taking inventory of your closet is now key for a great fall transition. Store away the items that you plan on keeping for next season and for the items that are still in good shape but to you have run their course, think about selling them for some type of profit. Again Mr. Sethi over at gave great information on how to sell items on a site like ebay and generate substantial revenue.

I personally have not used ebay yet to sell any items but I do plan on doing this in the near future. The insight from this article really made me somewhat understand the concept of ebay. I was very intimidated by the amount of items listed and would it be a waste of my time to list.
Mr. Sethi give some strategies and methods on how to list you items and make your items more ebay search friendly.

So break out the digital camera it's out with the old in with the new. They say what is another man's trash is another man's treasure, so start digging.

Trendspotting- MensWear Chic Under $30

Menswear Chic is such the trend for this fall season. I am in favor of the semi-masculine ensemble. A play on gender that is male is always a turn on for me. Ladies we are the 21st century and now we are starting to dress like it. OK enough, on my fempower I just absolutely love the comfort and sexy appeal associated with menswear. A nice trouser or blazer will always create polished look. So ladies for this fall break out those blazers and buy a couple pairs of fitted trousers because personally this is a timeless look that will never go away just reincarnate.

Below are some great affordable options for the season.

Sequins have always been a favorite. I reminds of the the glorious debauchery the was Studio 54. The lights and glamour is something that I crave. Sparkle and glitz is always a girl best friend, whether it be some bling or just a accent of shine we can all appreciate some shine.

These are some great example of sequins done right. Pairing sequins with something a lot less casual will still create the look without going overboard. Sequins OVERLOAD is not a pretty sight. And if you are going to go all out, one item only like a dress will surely keep on the right track. Shopping your local thrift stores is a great way to find this trend. Vintage is always in.

Do else anyone else love sequins like I do?

Frugal Tip Monday-It's Not What you Make but What You Spend?

Finance is another true love of mine. I came across a great article on regarding Conscious Spending. It definetly hit home with everything that I have been reading about lately. It's not what you make but what you spend is the real key to financial success.

According to Ramit Sethi, unless you establish a financial mindset at a very young age it is hard to break the I-want-it-now habit. He gives a scenario of three friends, their salaries and how they spend.

Friend 1: The Shoe Lover-She spends at least $5000 a year on footwear. Stating that he does not truley believe in the purchase but her six figure salary and various investment makes her authorized for a splurge or two.

Friend 2: The Partier- This friend can roughly spends close to $21,000 a year on entertainment. Mind you that is a bit excessive but again with a healthy salary and a nice standing in his 401K and real estate invesments he is sitting pretty.

And last but not least, Friend 3: The Subscription Nut- He has every subscription from Netflix, local gyms, and online music accounts. He does not disclose his salary but does mention that he does have a budget and plan for his money every month. That means its not more about the spending than it is managing the money.Money should always have a name and a plan. is a great resource for help and direction to a secure financial future. I just ordered the book yesterday, and I hope it lives up to everything that I hope for. I will write a review and let you know if it is worth the read.

Check out another Frugal Tip Monday tips about creating a budget and tools to help manage your finances.
