Budget Stylista: Clothes of a Feather Flock To Me

NYFW has now come to a close and while I’m sad my Twitter page won’t be filled with tweets of only the best fashion porn live from the runways, I can now dream up how I will apply soon-to-hit trends into my everyday ensembles. One way? Feathers.

Marc Jacobs made the most adorbs feather trimmed coat that made me want to go to an arts and crafts shop and glue feathers all. over. my. clothes. But then I realized I would in fact look like I went to an arts and crafts shop and glued feathers all over me….

So I took it to the online stores instead.

Look one:
This feather trimmed skirt is SUPER cute. I paired it with a simple black top (with a low cut back) so that you can add a bold shoe or bold jewlery. Or if you’re really, really bold, throw on a pair of colored tights.

Skirt: Forever 21, $28
Top: Bebe, $49
Shoes: DSW, $9.95

Look Two:
This sweater is not only in my fav color of the season (citrine), but the feather trimmed pin makes it pop. I love it for a night out sans tank underneath (so sexy), or feel free to throw a beater underneath for class.

Sweater: Forever 21, $32
Leggings: Lulus, $30
Shoes: Madden Girl, $39.95

If feathers on your ‘fits ain’t your thing there is NO shortage of amazing feathered accessories for a little extra oomph. Headbands, hair pins, earrings, clutches – go wild!
