Oh those politicians, claiming the recession is ending, but my purse knows the difference. Millions of us deal with student loan debt, and other monthly bills. What’s a girl to do? Throw style to the side? We think not. Become a frugal fashionista! In other words, embracing style doesn’t have to drain your bank account.

If you are a Mom with style and a conscious , you realize finding clothes for your little one isn’t limited to the mall or big box retailers like Target. Several months ago as I scrolled my Facebook feed, an ad popped up for Tiny Revolutionary. Being the curious girl that I am, I couldn’t resist clicking the link to learn more.

Moments later I ordered our baby girl’s first onesie. Just what is Tiny Revolutionary, you ask? Not your Mamma’s children’s clothing retailer! Founded by couple BreeAnne & Courtney the company’s mission is to make “the world a better place by producing inspiring kids clothes that teach children about peace, love, hope and responsibility for the world around them.”

It gets better. Tiny Revolutionary donates “more an 15% “of its profits  directly to children’s charities. Now that’s true style!

Stilettos are an instant mood lifter, stylishly placing you above the masses, a veritable celebration of the feminine!

What better way to kick off Fashion Fridays than by highlighting some current spring favs, beginning with a pair from Victoria’s Secret. I rocked these at the last Live In Color (LIC) blog photo shoot.
