Aloha Fabbies!

If you know anything about by KikiSol you know we all about the following items: F.A.B clothes and great deals! and when the stars align and you can find both..Hunnnniiiii like Ice Cube said, “today was a good day.” 

On my recent work trip to St. Petersburg, FL, I had a little down time so like most thrifty fashionistas would do, I hit up the nearest thrift store…and I am glad i did.  because I found this beauty…….13530360_10207634060064468_186398480_n

A MULTI COLORED TRIBAL PRINT DUSTER!!!

Oh, it was love at first sight, touch, purchase,  styling Whateva It was love! Now,  it took me a minute to eventually wear this beauty…. I know crazy right.. buy a dope piece and wait months to rock it but you know I was waiting for the right occasion…. you just can’t rock a gem like this anywhere like work or the dollar tree(i mean you could, but enough people won’t see you….. and that’s not acceptable)This beauty had to be seen at the perfect time!

So I rocked it for by KikiSol Summer 16′ photoshoot and I must say, your girl was FIREEEEEEEEE

This duster is a for sure statement piece I am glad I was able to add into my arsenal.  And it cost $4.99 which is winning! It is definitely a piece I can wear in all of the seasons. For the summer, it goes great with some shorts and a tank. The shorts I am rocking here are a pair of distressed shorts I picked up at Ashley Stewart . I purchased them off season, so I only paid $9 for them!( Style Tip #151: Shopping off season is the next best thing to thrifting, retail pieces for thrifty prices). 

Now, if you are familiar with the ladies of by KikiSol, you know we are fans of a cute, sturdy FLAT! We aren’t your heel wearing plus chicks…. hey finding a good heel to balance this size 26 goodness is not the easiest task… but I am challenging myself to incorporate a bit more height in my shoe game so I started off with these cuties from Eloquii.  13535897_10207634571677258_919827228_n

I like them because of the thick heel and the ribbon can be removed.

This look is great for rocking at a musical festival or a roof top day party. Its just the art of cool. The colors and the attitude that come along with is a statement on its on. I am very happy about this thrifted gem I found in a little thrift store in St. Petersburg… til the next gem is located…. get your thrift on!!!
