Office Chic

About 2 weeks ago, I posted a picture of my home office on Instagram out of pure excitement, seriously. It’s been a long time coming since I can actually say I have an entire room dedicated to blogging, learning, gaining all kinds of inspiration and just being me.
With being the only girl in my home, I have always had to be cognizant of decorating each room to make sure it does not look too feminine. Well, finally, I have a room that I don’t have to worry about that. God is good. #wontHedoit

Denim on Denim

I like looking through my trunk of denim jeans to find the perfect pair to wear especially if I am going somewhere, like to a fight party which is where I wore this outfit.
This may sound odd but I have tons of denim jeans but I only wear a select few that are strategically placed at the top of the pile.
The jeans I have on are a “Goodwill find” and the jacket is so old that I honestly can’t remember where I purchased it, possibly a “Goodwill find” too. 🙂

The Blue Night

Thanks to “Old Man Winter” in conjunction with Daylights Savings Time, many of my posts after work may have a darker hue.


The blue jacket that I am wearing is one of my favorite jackets that I bought a few years ago at Forever 21. Here’s a great shopping tip (that you may already know): Wait til off season to buy your sweaters and coats. You will get such a great deal.

Jean Day

Day 3 – Thank God it’s Friday – more specifically “Thank God it’s Jean Friday!”
I have tons of jeans that I have acquired over the years but only a few make the rotation.
I believe I bought this pair at Forever 21 along with the sweater.


ChalleBrown Style Corner: Where to Shop

Often times people will come up to me and say “Hey, I love your style. Where do you shop for your clothes?”. My response is generally “Everywhere” because the person may not really want know all the places.  A few stores at best.

Well, truth is I do shop “Everywhere” but I am brand loyal to where I purchase my clothes. If I like your product, whether it’s a unique boutique, Goodwill or a designer store, I will patronize it forever.
Here are some of my favorite spots (in no particular order):

Nordstrom Rack
Nordstrom Rack has all the designer clothing like Free People, Michael Kors, DKNY and others for 50%-75% off. I found a pair of wide leg Free People jeans for $44.00. (How cool is that?) Plus their jewelry is DYNOMITE!!! (in my JJ from Good Times voice).

Vintage Shops
I have a favorite store in my hometown that I frequent quite often because I find some of the best 70’s maxi dresses.  I visit the shop so much the owner gave me a honorary coupon for 20% off.

Forever 21
Okay, so who doesn’t shop at Forever 21? (crickets….)

Good store. Good prices. With a little effort, you can find the perfect pair of designer jeans for a mere $4.29.

I generally shop Etsy online as a treat to myself.  Some of their items can be a little pricey but the benefit is you receive a “one of a kind” outfit and you’re supporting an independent designer.
