How to INSTANTLY Transform Your Outfit

Transforming a basic outfit into a stylish masterpiece doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. Over the years I’ve figured out how to make my outfits look so over the top that people ask me where I shop numerous times, and when I say “Forever 21 & Zara” they’re so surprised. The difference is that I can stay in a store for 2 hours going through every single shelf and clothing rack making sure I don’t miss any unique and expensive looking pieces. I’ve decided to share with you a few of my go-to pieces to transform my look (affordably) so here are the pieces I use to look stylish, featuring some affordable options.

Bandaged Up

I wish I lived a glamorous life and could tell you that this was an OOTD, but it’s actually apart of a photoshoot I did for my job. I am wearing Herve Leger, which is a designer that I’ve admired for so long but could simply not afford so it was a privilege to wear this beautiful piece.

Hey Babes!

For this outfit of the day I paired a casual t-shirt dress with a wrap belt and block heels to create a casual chic look. This is definitely a go-to daytime to night time look, or even a quick and easy work look.
