2017 Style Resolutions

We are a little over a week into the new year. Every year we share our style resolution. In addition to personal resolutions, style resolutions are also important. I plan on continuing my 2016 theme, Quality over Quantity. As I'm getting older, cheap clothes, shoes, and accessories aren't the move.

My 2017 Style Resolutions:

  1. Invest in more staple classic pieces. 
  2. Add more color.
  3. Only buy what I need. No more buying things just to have it. 

I want to hear from you...What's you 2017 Style/Shopping Resolution? Leave a comment and let me know!

What's The TREND? Puffer Coats

Last weekend on the East Coast we had a snow storm that blanketed homes and businesses causing most people to have cabin fever for a few days and if you were going out to pull out your warmest coat possible! There's one thing I know for sure... puffer coats are the IT thing this winter. All colors, large, small, long or short you need to have at least one puffer coat in your wardrobe. Check out some snazzy choices below!

Meet Frugal Shopaholic Kiara Sharde

Kiara Sharde

Where are you from?
Durham, NC

Explain your blog or instagram name? 
I kept it simple with my first and middle name. Kiara Sharde' sounds spicier than Kiara Holley (my last name) lol

Describe your personal style.
Laid back and cozy. I walk everywhere and I'm on my feet all day at work so I'm usually in sneakers, loose jeans, and a tee.
What are your favorite places to shop?
 Before working as a buyer at Beacon's Closet, a designer and vintage thrift store,  Zara and Urban Outfitters were my usual places. But now just about all of my clothes come from my job. I find the best stuff and I always wonder why some of our sellers trade in their items! During my second week working there, I purchased  a vintage Celine bag (from when Michael Kors was their designer) and a vintage Louis Vuitton bucket bag.

What does being a “Frugal Shopaholic” mean to you? 
Knowing how to finesse your way around the belief that style means spending a lot of money!

What is a frugal shopaholic tip or trick that can share with our readers? 
Everything goes on sale so wait to buy something if you don't need to wear it ASAP. Fall merchandise gets put on the floor in August-September but is always marked down in December. 

How can we keep in touch with you?

It's a Photoshoot!

Finally! We reunite for a Frugal Shopaholics photoshoot.
