Gals… you’re a star… so dress like it! Act like it! BE IT!!

And really, to be anything, you’ve got to feel it and you’ve got to look it! We thought it would be cool to take one bag from Marshalls and style 2 looks for an  Uptown and Downtown Starlet! Here’s the deets on the bag:

Pour La Victoire Handbag: “The Servant Dusty Pink Multi” Originally priced $395.00 #fabfound at Marshalls for $149.99! Is your mouth salivating?? There is nothing that makes you feel more like a glamour girl than a great leather bag… am I right?! An investment piece such as this is totally Polished for Pennies for a few reasons:

  1. The deal you’re getting knowing the designer and retail value
  2. The quality… genuinely crafted leather bags will last you forever if you keep them well
  3. The structured style… with a style such as this, with it’s clean lines and professional swag, it’s profesh enough for the office but way cool hitting all the style marks for the street.

Which by the way for deals, quality, and style… I head to Marshalls! Just sayin…

So now that we’ve cleared that up, here’s the part one breakdown for: The Downtown Starlet!

Looking and feeling stylish and star-like Downtown in any city, takes a little creativity, takes a lot of confidence, and this Downtown Starlet takes a lot of style risks! So we mixed up fall colors and warm textures for a look that’s cool and chic on the go, AND photo ready for that paparazzi photog who’s haunting you on your off day at the coffee shop 😉

Now what’s the key to styling a look a little more creative, mixed up, and Downtown starlet? Use colors in the same tone when mixing textures. We kept this look in the warm color family using creams, beige’s, tans, and burgundy… then add POPs of color, like the red Ray Bans, orange Nike stripe, and pink stitching in the wool hat!  In short, play around with color and texture, keep your cool…. YOU CAN DO IT! We also love the idea of pairing different fabrics for an edge, like leather! Leather is always a go to for that downtown edge gives an edge to softer fabrics like cotton!


Wool and pink stitched hat: $19.99 Marshalls

Leather pants: Free People (Clearance) $29.99 Marshalls

Christian Dior Blazer: Vintage $10

T-shirt: $10.00  Marshalls

Wedged Metallic Nike’s: $129.99

Mirrored and Velour Framed Ray Bans: Birthday Present 😉

Here’s some similar pieces that POP!
