It never hurts a girl to look more expensive than she actually is! So the savvy in me teamed up with gorgeous New York stylist behind Closet Style Life for tips. Angela is a pro at creating luscious new looks with the clothes already in your closet. A current member of her wardrobe, she wanted to revamp this killer oversized thrifted coat by doing a tone on tone look – one of her go to’s for looking like a million bucks on a budget. It’s fantastic for elongating the physique too. I invited Angela to come shopping with me at the Salvation Army on 46th St to source the rest of this delicious burgandy hue. Together we found a slick pencil skirt complete with leathertte waistband and a classic V-neck in the same color palatte. We even found those super sexy stocking boots. Lady looks like a fine wine and for under $50! This is such an easy one for you to recreate. Scroll through for more style tips from my new eco styling buddy and don’t even get me started on that hair!

‘My style icons are Olivia Palermo – she mixes outfits like a champ. Carrie Bradshaw – she had so much fun with her outfits in SATC. I also love Solange Knowles – she takes so many sartorial chances that others don’t’
