Raquel's Style 1 | Plaid & Leather | Guest Post

I'm excited to guest post here on Bramblewood Fashion again. Ashley and I have talked and figured out a win-win situation for both of us.  She would like a regular (by 'regular', I mean, maybe weekly, but most definitely monthly) guest poster, and I've been wanting to do little fashion posts, but my blog isn't really focused on fashion.  And I also don't have the time to start my own fashion blog.  So I asked Ashley if I could guest post over here with my fashion ideas.  And she liked the sound of this...

So hi!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Raquel.  I blog over at It's Just Raquel (recently changed from God's Daughter).  Stop by and say hey sometime, okay?

But for now, I'm here.  And I would like to tell you a little about the idea I have planned for my guest posts.  See, I absolutely love hand-me-downs.  And shopping at thrift stores.  And looking through the clearance rack at my favorite stores.  I've had a lot of people ask me how I coordinate my outfits so well and I've told them that it's really just a mix-and-match of places I get things from.  So in my fashion posts, I want to break down the wheres and how-muchs (yes, I just made that word up) of whatever I'm wearing.  And here is my first try at this...


I don't wear very much makeup to begin with, and for this outfit, I chose to do a very simple style.  Only a bit of eyeshadow (Estee Lauder), eyeliner (Estee Lauder), and mascara (Maybelline).

I really love my new leather jacket.  And the big cozy hood makes me happy.

What are Converse if they don't show some wear and tear because they're loved and worn so often?


What I'm Wearing:

White tank top / Walmart - $5
Plaid shirt / Salvation Army - $2
Leather jacket / Ross (clearance) $23
Black leather belt / Walmart - $10
Jeans / hand-me-down
Converse / hand-me-down


Let me know what you think!
Oh and happy second day of December...craziness...!

Thanks for reading, and I hope I can get to know you all as I share more on here.  Look for my posts on Tuesdays!
