Personal Style | June Style Challenge - "Polka Dots and Stripes"

Hello Beauties!

Today is the final day of the June Style Challenge.  For five weeks, I shared my interpretation of a weekly style prompt and I appreciate you following the journey with me.  The final challenge for June is "Polka Dots and Stripes."  Of course, I love polka dots so I thought this would be easy; however, as I looked back on the month's style challenge, I realized I wore more black than I anticipated.  With this in mind, I tried to add color to this week's challenge.


The color part didn't work out so well!  Ha!  Of course, black is still a part of the equation, but I added a yellow shirt I recently thrifted.  The shirt is a mixture of gingham and polka dots, but unfortunately, it doesn't come across through the camera.  Thankfully, I had already thrown a polka dot clutch (last seen here) in the mix.  What I love most about this outfit is that the entire look was under $70!

Shirt:  Liz Claiborne via Thrift (Similar)
Skirt:  Target
Heels:  Shoe Dazzle
Clutch:  Ebay via EatStylePlay


Thrift Tip:  Most thrift stores have a weekly and/or monthly day where items are at least 50% off.  If you are in North Carolina, Value Village has 50% off every last Wednesday of the month.  That's how I scored my shirt for only $2.

Do you rock polka dots and stripes?  What would you have worn?


God bless & stay fabellis,

  5. I completely agree! It pains me a little when I see people wearing heavy makeup and you can see that their covering acne. I wish they knew you have to heal the source before you add anything.

  6. Love the way you mixed stripes and polka dots. I have a similar skirt and a black and white peplum top. I may try that combination and just stick my toe in with print mixing...lol. I feel a monochromatic look will help me test the waters in doing this :)

  23. I don't have rosacea, but I do suffer from eczema. It flares up when the seasons change, or due to pregnancy. I get these dark circles and patches on my neck and jawline. It's spread to my mouth this time. The skin around my lips started to look 4 times lighter than my actual shade. I was tripping out for a while. Friends and family who are close to me see me without makeup, and they would tell me that they could barely see it. They're such kind liars lol. I was pouring on BB cream to cover it up out of self consciousness. BB cream has plenty of moisture of it, so it turns out that I was actually helping my skin (along with the medicated cream prescribed by my doctor). My normal skin care routine consists of an cream cleanser for my neck and mouth, and a regular Clean and Clear cleanser for everywhere else. I have to exfoliate twice (maybe three times) a week. And I use a Buff Puff whenever I was my face and neck area.


    These are the A,B,C of me and my skincare.
