Rocking a Dress with Sneakers + Mahogany Closet Mondays Fashion Link UP


I am not really a sneaker kinda girl. I don't wear they that often, most of my sneakers are for working out. My brother works for Nike at their corporate office in Portland, so we can often expect some fresh Nike gear when it is a gift giving occasion. So for my birthday last June he got me these super cute sneakers and they had been sitting in the box on the shelf in my closet for months. Finally I was going to a hip hop event so I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to wear them paired with a black dress. I loved how it came out but I didn't really like the pictures from the event. Have you ever gone out somewhere and then seen some pictures later and think, I know my outfit looked cuter than that in person? LOL So I decided to recreate the look and thought the railroad tracks and local graffiti art would be the perfect background for the look. What do you think?


Budget Outfit Details: The dress is actually part of the Nicki Minaj collection at Kmart and I got it on sale for only $8, The shoes cost something, but seeing as I got them as a gift they were free to me! So all in all an $8 outfit. Sounds like an amazing budget outfit to me.

When weather conditions get rough it can make being fashionable a little harder. Depending on where you live you could be dealing with colder weather, rain, snow, hail or a combination.
