MALL RAT CHIC


Meet our new muse, Jasmin, or as her family and friends call her, “Jazzy!” I met Jazzy at a Christmas party a couple months ago. She was wearing an appropriately festive sequined top, but what really drew me in. was the sparkle in her eyes. Yes, as cheesy as it sounds, it all started with a sparkle. I knew then and there that I had to have her on the blog.

We went to the Wal-Mart in LA connected that’s connected to shopping center. We tried to find creative places to use our environment and ended up in the mall itself. I saw this 80s glass tile wall and thought it would be cool to use it as a spotlight shining through her outfit.

The surprise element to this ensemble is that the polka dot halter is actually a halterkini, traditionally referred to as a BATHING SUIT! It’s not online, but while were on the bathing suit kick, I found a swimsuit I’m obsessed with that could double as a leotard under high-waisted jeans or a skirt. No one would ever know…

These skinny jeans are insanely flattering. Thanks, Miss Tina. And this hooded rain jacket is fantastic quality and has a fab collar fit to pop.

  1. I read through your blog one afternoon a couple weeks ago. I then went to Wal-Mart and found an amazing collection of accessories, most of it under $10. Some of the pieces are $30+ on ModCloth and similar sites, most excellent. Thanks for your brilliance, and that black swimsuit you found is mighty fine. It’s going to be my one-piece this season. High five.
