Following me on Instagram has probably let you in on my secret weapon to a lit look...SHADES. Yes, I have a thing for shades and how it adds to an outfit. Riri and I share that in common🤷🏽♀️. Let me fill you in on what makes these shades so special to me: I WON THEM! I follow a ton of fashion and style blogs on Instagram, Styling Stingy being one of my favs. I won the Blue Jay shades and 2 other pieces that I will be sharing with you in another post (stay tuned.)
The creative mind behind the brand is Al, a 25 year old stylist from Jersey. His brand is built on his love for thrifting and recognizing the importance of maintaining a stylish lifestyle that will not burn a hole in your pocket. As a stylist and style blogger, I’ve been in the situation where I felt the pressure to purchase designer pieces. However, learning about Al’s brand has confirmed my reasoning for not allowing myself to fall victim to that kind of mindset. Style is defined by personality and preference. It’s all about how you put certain pieces together and confidently wear it. It is not defined by a price tag or the name on the tag, that’s called identifying an item.
It’s safe to stay that his goal to inspire while being creative and sharing his eye for art through style has certainly been accomplished. I’m inspired. Originality is what makes your brand stand out. Look out for more Styling Stingy pieces. Thank you Al❤️
