Welcome my darling fashionistas and welcome to Classic Black Pumps. The purpose of adding my name to the incredibly lengthy list of style bloggers? I want each and every extraordinary lady (young or old, rich or poor) to be able to be classy and fashion-forward without breaking the bank. Mind you, I'll encourage a splurge every once in a while, but for the most part we'll discuss the afforadable and wearable. This being the first day of our enVogue adventure together, I give you a mission: Go to the nearest Ross or TJ Maxx and spending only $25, put together a complete outfit (you may add extra for shoes, but nothing over $20). I'll do the same and post the results here. Remember lovelies, be classy, never trashy. Your outfit should not scream BUDGET. Pick something out that will make you look like you just walked out of a shopping spree at Saks.
I really like clothes. Like really really like them. I'm also partial to classic rock and F. Scott Fitzgerald novels, but seriously. Fashion trumps all. When I'm not musing about riding boots and little black dresses, I'm either studying or exploring Chicago with my friends. Life is beautiful.
Special thanks to Maura and Helene. Without them, this blog would not be possible. They are my stylish muses and support. Maura, a leggy blonde with silvery eyes, is my sister and an aspiring model. Helene, a darling gamine with a killer smile is Maura's best friend and the future of iconic actresses. Their dress is revolutionary and bold and their love is infinite. Thanks girls. You're my heroes.
