Guest Post - Mom's Have Style, Too!

Hello, Frugalista Fans!  I'm Erin from Moms Have Style, Too!  Megan has kindly asked me to guest post for her while she's on maternity leave and I couldn't be more honored!  I've been a devout fan of Megan's ever since I started blogging.  She's amazing with that baby bump and those killer heels!  I totally admire her gusto.
For those who don't know me, I'm a mom of a 2.5 year old cutie pie named Charlie (he's also my regular photo bomber :).  I write my blog for a few reasons.  1)  I want to inspire women to get up and get dressed everyday.  I really believe that when you feel pretty and 'put together', you feel happier and more in charge of your life.  It's empowering!  2)  My blog pushes me everyday to find new outfits in my closet.  I used to have a default uniform for just about every occasion.  I kept the same few outfits on rotation every week.  Since starting my blog in January, I haven't repeated an outfit yet! 
Today's outfit is all about trends.  We've got stripes, 70's flares, nude pumps...if only I had a floral maxi dress on, I'd have spring wrapped up in a nutshell!
Jeans: Gap
Top and belt: Target
Shoes: White House/Black Market
Necklace: LOFT

Guest Post: Richie Riches for Less

27 April 2011


Hello! to The Frugalista Diaries Readers,
Do you like Nicole Richie's stylish looks!? My name is Charlene and I run RICHIE RICHES for LESS, a blog I created to dress like Nicole Richie for less! I found myself constantly finding outfits that looked like her without the heavy designer price tag. Her style is so inspirational, everything from rock edgy to bohemian. Nicole's got the look.

I am so honored to have been asked to do a guest post on Frugalista Diaries. Since the beautiful Megan was pregnant, I wanted to do a look for less from Nicole when she too was pregnant. Just because Nicole Richie was preggers here, I feel that you can totally rock this look even if you aren't. I'm not, and it totally works on me!

Nicole is seen here in 2007 leaving driving school. Wearing Gucci sunglasses, black top and sandals both by Azzedine Alaia, white tank by The Row, a Dries van Noten maxi skirt and bag by Yves Saint Laurent. My looks for less picks; Forever21 brown sunglasses, a black long maxi dress from Forever21, white long tank and black (rolled up) both from H&M, Modern Vintage flats and a leopard print bag.
Just for Nicole Richie's Yves Saint Laurent Fauve large Leopard print bag: $1,995
My whole outfit cost: $135

Guest Post - Real Girl Glam

26 April 2011

Hi, Everyone! I’m Amber from Real Girl Glam, and I’m honored to be doing a guest post today for Megan. I’m a little bit of a shop-aholic and definitely not one to turn down a good deal. About two years ago, a Kohls was built in my city. With that a new love was born! Although I do shop at a bunch of different stores, I’ve found lately that I’ve been making quite a few purchases at Kohls. (It might just be because they keep sending me 30% off coupons!). So today, I would like to pay homage to a few of my Kohls brand pieces.
Over the winter, I really got into wearing scarves. When I saw this one, I knew instantly I HAD TO HAVE IT! I love a good animal print and I think a scarf is a great way to add a bit of pop to an otherwise plain outfit.
{Fedora- Mudd, Dress- Mudd, Heels- Vera Wang}
I live in Florida and weather can be CRAZY hot in the summer. For me, a dress is the perfect way to show off my style with minimal clothing. Throw on some cute heels, a great fedora (In honor of Megan, I had to show off my new straw fedora with this outfit!) and I’m ready to go!

Discovered

It seems I made a discovery with today's look, as it turns out my blouse buttons down, don't ask how I didn't know that until this morning, but I really didn't. In my defense pregnancy brain is in full effect at the moment...

However, with my new discover came open doors, meaning this fabulous ruffled blouse is now a pregnancy friendly draped cardigan. Perfect for pairing with a vest and skinny jeans ;). Xo
(and this is me trying to take the camera from my husband but him continuing to take pictures...grrrreat)

How I Wore It: ShopBelina.com's Esmeralda

19 April 2011

If you follow me on Twitter you may have gotten a sneak peak at the latest accessory to grace my closet, the Esmeralda statement necklace ($22) from ShopBelina.com, which now happens to be my go to boutique for cheap and chic statement pieces. 

Belina, which was founded in August of last year is already taking the world by storm with pieces seen at the Grammy's as well as on NBC San Diego, offers the latest and most fashionable jewelry trends for the mod-girl today. 
I couldn't have been more happy when I received the Esmeralda, not only is the necklace a stunner it's well made too, which is a good feeling especially after my most recent fiasco with a broken necklace after the first wear.  After debating on how to wear the necklace first, I opted for a casual spring maxi dress and colorful cardigan. Turns out the Esmeralda is as versatile as it is pretty, and I can't wait to find new and fabulous ways to wear it. 
 Necklace c/o ShopBelina.com, Dress Banana Republic, Sweater Old Navy, Shoes Michael Kors, Bag Coach, Belt Vintage
And as an added bonus ShopBelina.com is giving The Frugalista Diaries reader's 20% off their purchase with promo code - Belina20
Don't forget to follow them on Facebook and Twitter
*disclosure - I received this necklace for the purpose of the review of ShopBelina.com - as always my opinion is 100% true and my own.
