Broke-Ass Tag: black


Y’all, I love helping people out. That’s part of the reason why I love working at BAB. So when my girl Becca sent out a Facebook plea for help in finding shoes to go with this dress in Ocean Blue that she’s wearing as a bridesmaid for a wedding, I was all over it. Because: Duh. I could help her and I had a great mission for my Five for Friday! The Rules: Must be able to walk on both grass and pavement (though if needed, Solemates are the perfect accompaniment for heels in grass), under $40, open-toed and low-heeled. Challenge: Accepted!

Now these are veeery slightly out of budget, but considering the non-sale price, a great get. A classic shape and style, but with a slight twist and one that translates well for most outfits/occasions, so the ROI is awesome.


I just love these, and I can’t keep it to myself:

    I have been in a wedding inspiration rut lately, until I asked the Broke-Ass Bride herself for a little inspiration. She gave me one of the BEST IDEAS EVER. Why not have a wedding based on Breakfast at Tiffany's?! It's an iconic movie and a lovely theme. Go with basic black and deck your bridesmaids out in sunglasses and classic sterling silver jewels... and you're…
