Fab Find: Forever 21 Double Finger Rings

Rings are one of my favorite accessory items. They are simple but yet add a sense of personality to any ensemble. My recent favorite trend are the double finger rings. I am absolutely LOVE THEM. They are the modern day brass knuckles. I like the play on the element of "bad ass" with a splash of class. Forever 21 features several Double Finger Rings for only $2.80. Who can be that, I bought each and everyone. I know what a shame!!!

And they are a great Christmas gift idea for something small but memorable. I bought each of my sisters a pair and some for my "Bestie for the Restie" (best friend).

Frugal Tip Monday-Tips To Get The Most Out Of Black Friday

black friday 2009
Can you believe that Black Friday is this week. On Frugal Tip Monday-Black Friday Websites 2009 I gave some online sites that were dedicated to posted the ads and deals for Upcoming Black Friday.

Here a couple of tips that I thought would be useful and make your shopping experience less stressful and hassle-free.

1. Make a List-Knowing exactly what you are looking for. This can eliminate overspending and buying certain items that you do not need. Remain focused on what you are there to purchase, Black Friday are very limited so make sure you prioritize.

2. Strategize Store Locations-Everyone is having great deals but you cannot be in several places all at once. Choose which deals you feel are the most important because some offers are so unbelievable it is worth a shot.

3. Be Early-This is the key factor in getting the deals. "The early bird catches the first worm" and in this case they are so right. There are some dedicated shoppers out there that can start to arrive at certain locations 2 or more hours in advance. So grab a cup of coffee and a bagel and get ready to camp out for the long haul.

4. Carry a Shopping Partners- I am a firm believer in having a shopping partner. Not only for safety but also to be another set of arms to snag certain deals. Four arms are better than Two. While someone is running the other person can be in tow the shopping cart.

5. Be SAFE- This is the most important tip. Losing your life is not worth any amount of money. Please act like an adult.

TrendSpotting-Winter Coats Under $50

What is winter without a "fashionable coat". Having a nice outwear is a true essential to a winter wardrobe. If you are going to purchase a new coat this winter, make the "right selection". Yes, buying a sequin coat right now is "IN" but never spend too much money on trendy items.

A pea coat or trench are classic designs that have never went out with the "trends". They are the best investment that you will make in outer winter wear. So have fun experimenting with bold colors and patterns to express your personal style. And get ready to "bundle up in style".

Black Friday Websites 2009

We all know that Christmas is right around the corner. And we all know what that means. SHOPPING, SHOPPING, AND MORE SHOPPING.

Black Friday 2009 is steadily approaching and a game plans surely needs to be in place. Finding the best deals on all the items you are looking for is a great way to minimize over spending and alleviate stress.

Target and Walmart are having "Value of The Day" where particular item is highly discounted and only available at that price for the day. They even have cool features where you can have the alerts sent via text message. So Check It Out.

Here are some site Black Friday Websites that have ads for store that are posted and you can sign up to receive updates when new ads are posted:

These are some of the best sites that I found that are user-friendly and you are not overwhelmed by so many advertisements on the homepage.

Please remember to sign up for the updates to your email address.

So is anyone planning on going Black Friday Shopping?

A Re-Intoduction of Fashion Without Guilt

Hello Hi Graphic #112Hello Ladies and Gents,
I have been doing some "real blog soul searching". I know that sounds funny but I have been doing alot of thinking. I truly want to get to know my readers and intern you get to know me. I have been dealing with alot of things within myself, about my blog. I am trying to keep great content but need to take it to the next level. I feel somewhat stuck.

As I stated in my one of my recent post, Fashion Without Guilt wants to hear from you that I would start posting some things going on in my life some fashion and some personal.

I first wanted to introduce myself to my readers. My name is Breck. I love the color BLACK, I am EXTREMELY FRUGAL, and LOVE FASHION and FINANCE.

Here is some background on how Fashion Without Guilt came to be. First off, I have a absolute obsession with finding the best deals and I mean the best. I will not buy a item of clothing over $10 unless I deem it truly necessary. I know I'M CHEAP. But from my love of fashion and frugality grew the workings of FASHION WITHOUT GUILT.

One day, while at work I wanted to help others that were like me. They love fashion but at reasonable prices. So I decided to create a blog that shared that passion.

So from now on I plan on sharing some of me with you. I hope you appreciate this and can't wait to hear from you.

Please feel free to comment and tell me about you and what you think?

Trendspotting-Gold Metallic Minidresses Under $50

Gold Metallic Minidresses
Rise and Shine!!! Metallics and Mini Dresses are back with a vengeance. The trend this season is sexy shine. As pictured Kim Kardashian and Elisa Dushku are showing us great examples of this trend done right. Forever 21 and AmericanApparel have some great alternatives we can all afford.

When choosing metallics there are a few things to consider:

1. The type of material of the garment-Fabrics with shine if not chosen wisely can come across as low quality(cheap). To prevent this, try the item on first. Is there a stretch to the fabric or do you just look like roll of aluminum foil?

2. No Shine Overload-I am all for glitz but sometimes there can be too much. If you are going to incorporate shine into your ensemble, please use discretion. Do not ever wear this fabric as a top and bottom. The fashion police will be called immediately. Choose one garment and stick to it.

3. Have Fun-Metallics are all about fun and making statement. So OWN IT AND BE FIERCE.

Frugal Tip Monday-Ways to Make and Save Extra Money for The Holiday Shopping Season

ebay logo
The Holidays are here again. (I know it seems like you were here planning for Christmas just a few months ago) Spending lots of money is on the front of everyone's mind right now. But Fashion Without Guilt is here with a few ideas to help you save or earn a few extra bucks to contribute to your holiday shopping.

Reselling Items around your home-In a previous Frugal Tip Monday I have written about Taking A Closet Inventory for Fall. Going through and getting rid of things that you know are not going to be of use to you anymore, Get Rid of It. As they say "what is one man's trash, is another man's treasure" so it's time to get selling. Reselling your own items is a great way to earn some extra cash. An article written by Ramit Sethi of Iwillteachyoutoberich instructs you on some key areas to make your ebay listing more valuable.

I personally am going to take my own advice. I am going through my closet and reselling alot of items that I know I have no use for. Wish me Luck, I will let everyone know the name of my ebay store very soon. Everything will be affordable.

Another online avenue for earning extra revenue is listing your items on Craigslist. This is a free site to list your items. ***Unlike Ebay where you ship the items to your customers, Craigslist is somewhat more based on a local scale. So if you are going to meet a potential buyer please be safe and make smart decisions before meeting a random person from the Internet.***

Please share some of your ideas on saving for this Shopping Season?
