look of the day: i’ve got double designers

I have to admit, for my live morning news show segment yesterday on San Antonio Living, I did not outfit plan.  I knew that I wanted to wear my new skull scarf, but other than that, nada.

Here’s the outfit that I put together the morning of.





Basic black tee, my new skull scarf I got for $8 at no more rack, green Lee skinny jeans, and leopard print booties from forever 21. Add red lips, my gold cuff from Otra Vez Couture Consignment, a Marc Jacobs tote to hold all the needed props for my TV segment and my black leather Michael Kors bag and I’d say I did a pretty good job!



Couture Consignment

In my panic over nothing to wear for this past FNO, I made a trip down to Otra Vez Consignment Couture to browse their designer filled racks and shelves.  Not your average consignment store, Otra Vez caters to the upscale fashionista in us all specializing in designer and brand name items at 50-90% off and in like new condition, sometimes brand new! This store is exactly what I’m about; champagne taste on a beer budget!

I was face to face with Prada, Juicy Couture, Gucci, Hermes, Michael Kors, and my man Louis Vuitton, just to name a few.

I chatted with manager Liz Moody as she walked me around, using her fashion eye to personally pull pieces for my size and style needs.  Otra Vez offers the best customer service and friendly, helpful attitude that you expect at high end retail stores.  It’s like having a one on one with your own personal shopper, but doing so in a smaller, more intimate setting and without burning a hole through your wallet.  No need to explain to hubby why today’s shopping trip maxed out the credit card!

Be sure to make a trip down there for any of your designer fashion needs and click here to find out how to consign your own items for cash or store credit.

Head over to their facebook page and like it to stay up to date on new items.  This store gets designer brands daily and they go fast, so if you’re looking for that perfect LV or pair of Louboutins, like them to be the first to see when it arrives and snatch it up! Check them out now because there’s a sold out online Louis Vuitton purse and Tiffany key necklace there that I have my eye on!


champagne is delicious, gorgeous shoes are a must, family fun is important, but the piggy bank still has to be fed 😉
