Macy's x Icons of Style

I have truly been a victim of Instagram ads over the last year and some change but I have definitely purchased some gems. Last week a Macy's ad popped up in my Instagram feed for a Collaboration with 5 different stylists & designers. I was very intrigued to see what items were available so I went ahead and checked it out.

The Icons of Style collaboration with Macy is made up of 5 Black visionaries who are the movers and shakers in the fashion world. This collaboration features men's and women's clothing. Let me just say I loved a good handful of items from each line and I wanted to share!

Zerina Akers for Bar II
Zerina is a stylist and costume designer, her line was super vibrant and free-flowing! Perfect for the Spring and Summer. The majority of the pieces are perfect for your next bae-cation or vacation.


Misa Hylton for INC
Misa has been in the fashion game for more than 25 years and has cultivated looks for most of your favorite stars in the R&B and Hip Hop game.


Allen Onyia For INC

The Look for Less: Bottega Veneta Cassette Bag

It's been a while since I've done a look for less on the blog so I had to come correct. Bottega Veneta is one of the most popular brands out right now. From shoes to bag, everyone has been wearing them. One of the most popular styles is the cassette bag and of course I've found a dupe for a fraction of the pice. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Affordable Workout Gear Under $50


We're 2 weeks into the New Year and I hope you're sticking to your New Year resolution(s). The most popular resolution is to get fit or lose weight. One can pay for sessions with a personal trainer, buy a gym membership, or even workout at home. One thing you will always need however you do your workout is quality activewear. There nothing like getting in a good workout in some good workout gear. Now, quality activewear can run you a pretty penny, but have no fear frugal shopaholics are here. My go-to spots to buy affordable activewear are Old Navy, Costco, Target, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and of course Amazon. Be sure to shop these stores while they have sales. Old Navy is good for 40-50% off sale. Check out our Amazon shop and the widgets below for some cute and affordable activewear.

The Look for Less: MICHELE Deco Bracelet Watch

Hey Frugs! It's been a while. Hope you are all are doing well in the midst of the pandemic. We're trying to get back into the swing of blogging. It felt kinda weird blogging about shopping while so may people were out of work. However, this MICHELE look for less was too good not to post. It's super affordable and you'll never guess where I found it. 

MICHELE watches are a timeless classic and staple for many women. Pair it with a few bracelets and you have the perfect stack. These types of items are definitely investment pieces and are worth the splurge if you have it. But if a high-end watch is not in your budget don't worry there is always something comparable style-wise out there. For example, the MICHELE Deco watch retails for a over $2,000. I found a look-alike at Walmart, yes you read that correctly, for $13. Now the quality is nowhere near a MICHELE watch but if you to give off that look; It's definitely giving. Check it out!
