Frugal and Fab: Forever 21 and Zara

After 2 days of non-stop packing (I’m moving back to Manhattan!), I had to treat myself with a little online shopping.  Zara was having its end of season sale and I had to fill my shopping cart with all the items still on my spring/summer wishlist.  I love Zara!

Below, you’ll find a Zara blazer worn over my Forever 21 yellow dress (also worn here). The accessories are a travel find from my trip to Thailand.

The snakeskin tote was a freebie from NY Fashion Week, and the snakeskin heels, I’ve had forever. This outfit was one of the last outfits that I wore to work at Saks.  I’ve left the company to pursue another great opportunity and also to deal with this move.  Currently, I’m living in work out gear now that all my fashions have been packed away.  I crave the day when I can unpack, organize my new closet and dress up for work again!


Guess what ladies, I’m running a Fab Freebie with Sweet Fashion Deals!  All you have to do is share any of my blog posts on FB and tag it with @FabGabBlog so I can track your entry.  Click here for all the details.




Style Diary: 1 Zara Blazer, 5Ways

I fell in love with this Zara blazer at first sight so much so that I actually stopped a fellow New Yorker on the street just to ask her where she bought her blazer. I didn’t care that she must have thought I was crazy. I just needed to have that blazer!

It’s the perfect work piece because it’s cool yet a professional topper over dresses and slacks.  And it makes for a chic casual topper on the weekends as well!  Which outfit is your favorite?

Here, I’m wearing the blazer with my new summer-weight, black slacks from BCBG, and a tote bag that is inspired from Olivia Palermo’s tote bag featured here.   The bow-tie blouse, is stolen from my mom’s closet.

In the next post, I paired the same blazer with cream pants, tank blouse, Chanel purse, and BCBG shoes.

The below is a mish mash of brands ranging from Prada to Ann Taylor and Chanel to H&M.  For the full outfit details, click here.

The below outfit consists of a Zara blouse, Express necklace, leather skirt, Chanel shoes and 9west heels.

Lastly, here’s a casual outfit worn with my AG fuschia jeans, Forever 21 tee and JCrew necklace.

Have you guys been to Zara lately?  I am loving their latest collection in stores now.  I wanted to wear everything!!  Here are some of my favorites, pinned onto my pinterest account!
