H&M Garden Collection First Look from Fab TV

I can hardly contain myself. The arrive date is near for the long awaited Garden Collection from H&M. I am like OCD when it comes down to something that I really want and I know that there is a limited supply.

I have called H&M at least 10 times in the past two weeks just to make sure that I have not missed beat. I have even set a reminder on my work calendar so that I can call right as the store opens to put certain items on hold. And here are some pictures from my computer as proof:

h&m garden collection

h&m garden collection

The collection is premering on March 25th. I can hardly hide the excitement and anxiousness that I feel. I have literally had a dream that I am at H&M trying on the collection. I know I am CRAZZYYYY!!! I wrote about the Garden Collection back in January and posted some of my MUST HAVES ITEMS.

But Fabsugar they have a exclusive sneek peek inside the collection before it hits stores. Is anyone as EXCITED AS I AM?

Frugal Tip Monday-Spring Cleaning Tips and List

Spring Time has finally arrived. For some of us they were still having snow in some parts of the US on Saturday. Not here in Georgia it was a beautiful and warm.

So what did I do to take advantage of this Glorious Day?, I shaved my legs after them being in hibernation for months and put on a skirt. YYYEEEAAAHHHH FOR ME!!!! But anyways, it is definitely time to get everything in order for Spring Cleaning.

I am still in the process of trying to earn money of items that are in my home and not being used. So I took some time to find some great information guide on Spring Cleaning and even found a check list that can be printed and used as a handy "get ur done" guide:

How Clutter Can Cost You @ Get Rich Slowly
Spring Cleaning Tips @ Life Organizers
Storing Winter Clothes @ HouseKeeping
Spring Cleanup Check List @ CasaSugar
Great Surprise/Hidden Organizers @ Real Simple
Tips to Make Money From Spring Cleaning @ Ehow
Ways To Earn Money After Clean Out @ Fashion Without Guilt

***And one more key thing to finish out your Spring Cleaning Duties: Go through your email inbox. Organize, create folders, and delete all the items. You will feel 10 times better. That is what I have been doing all last week. Cleaning up my email. It is like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Trendspotting:Boyfriend Jeans Under $25

Boyfriend Jeans are definitely a spring trend that will be around for a while. I am a true lover of skinny jeans but the relaxed yet feminine fit of these jeans are a "girl's best friend". We are not just raiding our significant others closet for blazers and white collared shirts but now we can were their jeans. WWWHHOOO!!! (With the voice of Vicky from the Housewives of Orange County).

Rolling up the bottom of your jeans and pairing them with your favorite footwear is a great way to keep this trend fun and girly.

Here are some my favorite examples of this trend "done right" courtesy of Chictopia.
I have selected some affordable style of boyfriend jeans under $25.

Fashion Without Guilt Jewelry Giveaway

HAPPY ST. PATTYS DAY!!!! Just wanted to remind everyone the contest for the GIVEAWAY end today 12am. So please remember to FOLLOW ME on FACEBOOK and TWITTER to be entered in the contest.


As you have recently saw I went to NY for Fashion Bloggers Conference that were being held. I had a day to myself to sight see and just explore what NYC has to offer. My hotel was just a couple of steps from Canal Street. Canal Street is the mecca for all you "knockoff accessories". If you want it, it is there on Canal Street vendor after vendor with whatever you heart's desire.

I some how made my into Soho and came across every woman's dream accessories depot, So Good Jewelry. Once I entered the store my feet left the floor (like in Willy Wonka Movie) and I went mad. I picked up everything I saw and wanted within my reach. As I would look at the price tags I was even more in shock because the prices are what every "Frugal Fashionista" hopes to one day encounter. The quality of the jewelry was impeccable. Mostly everything that I picked up was $4.99. Let's just say I spent a Benjamin Franklin without batting a eyelash and was completely satisfied. And that is very rare for me that mostly buys an item for $10 or below.

So look for that sometime next week) But while I was away I could not forget about my "Cyber Friends". I thought of you too while I was away. I bought I coral cocktail ring that is adjustable to fit any size finger. I know your welcome in advance. :)

You have to be/become a FAN of Fashion Without Guilt on our FACEBOOK or TWITTER to be eligible for the contest. And that is it. Just that simple.

Christian Siriano Limited Edition Runway for Payless

Yes!!! My prayers have been answered. Some footwear is available from the Christian Siriano Spring 2010 Runway Collection on

After a out cry from the public to bring the actual designs from the runway to retail Siriano has now delivered what we have wanted all along. The pieces are limited edition so act fast. Their price point is $79.99. I never usually would consider paying that much for a pair of shoes but these are definitely a pair that need to be added to the category of "Timeless".

Best and Worst Dressed of Oscars 2010

Best and Worst Dressed of Oscars 2010

gabourey sidibe oscars 2010

Gorgeous!!! What more can you say? Perfect overall look.

meryl streep oscars 2010

Classy and Age appropriate. I would even wear this.
Take up the length of the dress and we have a deal.

nicole richie oscars 2010

LOVED!!! Great dress choice, makeup and hair were impeccable.
I want to be her. :)

Diane Kruger oscars 2010

Mrs. Kruger is one of my favorite red carpet fashionistas.
She always knows what, wear, and how to look astounding at all times.

Sandra Bullock oscars 2010

She looked like a Oscars. You cannot get anymore polished and perfect as this.

Kate Winslet oscars 2010

Was she attending a wedding reception or the Oscars?
With a body like that, what were you thinking?
There is nothing exciting about the structure of the dress,
the color, or anything for that matter.

Cameron Diaz oscars 2010

This dress choice was one of the WORST of the night.
Her body structure is not made for a dress like that.
She does not look comfortable or confident and
it was just a "no go" for me all the way around.

carey mulligan oscars 2010
Why? I know with shorter you should wear something dramatic around the face to draw attention, but come on this is just too much.

She is a young beautiful girl they should start dressing her like one.

Sarah Jessica Parker oscars 2010

I love SJP but this dress reminded me of the something that
she has already worn before. And furthermore, it was not flattering
for her body type and the hair was a train wreck.

Mariah Carey oscars 2010

Mariah trying to show off your thong pantyline is not very becoming.
Please take a step back from trying to be sexy and think
your look all the way through.

fashion dpression,depression

Let me just start by saying that I am a little tired. I work at a Insurance Company were the dress code is not "strictly enforced" but we still are not able to wear what you would like. I am sitting here thinking "Wow. Breck you look horrible". I have really let myself go. My appearance is not what a "Affordable Fashionista Blogger" should look like. I am not sure where the train got off the tracks but it has been off for at least a year. I get up just in enough time to get ready, iron something really quick out of the closet and make it work. Frankly I am so tired of this routine, I could just scream. I am in "Fashion Depression" and I need some medicine STAT.

I have not been keeping up my appearance like I know I should. The same recycled outfits are covering my body week to week. Does anyone have this same depression as I? I give advice for Affordable Fashion and Style, then dress like I would need to be on "What NOT TO WEAR".

Enough is Enough I am taking back my style and appearance. I want to look a certain way, I know how but I am not investing enough in myself to make this happen. So I am taking a stand to against "Fashion Depression" once and for all. From this day forward I will like and feel like I want.

Here are my steps to make this action a reality:

1. Clean my closet- If I have not worn it in the past 6-8 months, it is time to say Goodbye.

2. Reselling Items- I want new clothes and what better way to get them is by getting some type of income for them.

3. Buy Carefully- A new season is approaching with new trends and goodness it time to start spring shopping again. But this year and from now on I am going to shop more carefully. Not by impulse but by thinking about the purchase and will I really wear or use the product that I am purchasing.

4. Respect Me- Your overall presence and presentation is a reflection of one's self. I do not want to look or feel this way anymore. I am going to Respect myself by taking the time necessary to make myself look and feel the way I truly want.

Is anyone with me? Share your comments and thoughts? Are you dealing with this too or have you ever dealt with this before?

Would you be interested in hearing about my progress?

Frugal Tip Monday-10 Things Millionaires Won't Tell You

Money, without it we are not able to enjoy the necessities in life, let alone the luxuries. Loving shopping and fashion as much as I do, I always have a passion for finance and building wealth. By building true wealth you have to be a conscious spender, according to Ramit Sethi of Iwillteachyoutoberich.

Aside from being a frugal/savvy shopper, I am concerned about building my wealth for years to come. You hear all these fancy terms and ways you should spend but sometimes I love hearing the real-life scenarios that separate the Poor from the Wealthy.

I came across this great article, "10 Things Millionaires Won't Tell You" and immediately a eagerness to see what the story was about. These are some very great points to adapt to your everyday life.

10 Things Millionaires Won't Tell You

“You may think I’m rich, but I don’t.” Real millionaires understand that 1 or 2 million will not take them through the next 30 years.

“I shop at Wal-Mart . . .” Most millionaires how they got there was by buying smart and saving money by clipping coupons. Not shopping at what I like to call "Boutique Supermarkets".

“. . . but I didn’t get rich by skimping on lattes.” Most millionaires,by statistics made their millionaires by being a entrepreneur, not skipping the Starbucks line.

“I have a concierge for everything.” Let's worry about a concierge when you make you millions, average folks can't afford that.

“You don’t get rich by being nice.” I agree with this 100%. Being nice will never get you to the top. You will have to say "no" and mean it. Walk away from things that are not profitable but at the end of the day always keep your integrity. Never burn any bridges but try to get to the top is a lonely road and lots of enemies will come.

Taxes are for little people.” Plainly put millionaires under taxes and file under capital vs. middle class because middle class is taxed 15% more than capital gain.

“I was a B student.” Clearly states that the straight "A" student is mostly likely not going to be your boss nor business owner, so that means there is hope for me. YYYIIIPPPEEE!!!

“Like my Ferrari? It’s a rental.” They do not spend money on things that are not of true value. Why buy when you can rent?.

“Turns out money can buy happiness.” Research shows that wealth does bring happiness. Roughly 65% of millionaires say that money “created” more happiness for them.

“You worry about the Joneses — I worry about keeping up with the Trumps.” What more can I say to that.

So let me know what you think? Do you Agree or DisAgree? Let me know your thoughts?
