Fab Friday: Andra Richardson
Happy Friday, y'all! Are you all geared up for an epic Memorial Day weekend?
Well, just in case shopping is on the agenda, we wanted to offer you inspiration in the form of yet another Fab Friday post from a local fashionista who has plenty of advice about scoping out stylish deals.
Andra Richardson is an Atlanta native, model and fashion/business student who decided to expand her empire a few years ago into the online style arena with a blog called the Knick Knacker. She writes about beauty, fashion trends and events, relationships and more.
So, without further ado, I'll let Andra take it from here! (And don't forget that you could also become a future feature by reaching out to us on Twitter @DealDivas or shooting us a photo plus some info about yourself using the email addys to the right).
Name: Andra Richardson
Blog: Knick Knacker
Day Job: Assistant Buyer & Merchandiser at Rooms To Go
Style philosophy: It shouldn't have to cost a million bucks to look like it!
Your best deal ever: I'm always excited when I run across an 80's Members Only jacket. If it fits, it's mine. Whenever I find one, it's always under $20. I've also found some great pieces at the Forward Arts Foundation Flea Market in Buckhead (I'm originally from Atlanta). I scored a pair of Prada pants for around $15, an Italian leather bag around the same price, and other unique things that you would never find anywhere else. Any time I find something very unique, especially jewelry, it's a score for me!
Favorite places to shop: I LOVE JCPenney! I also like shopping at the boutiques in Little 5 Points in Atlanta, H&M, Ross, Charlotte Russe for shoes, Rue 21 for jewelry, Lucky Exchange in Atlanta, Revolve Clothing Exchange in Ybor City, New York & Company for jeans and slacks (they make awesome bottoms for tall women), the Marc by Marc Jacobs store in Savannah, Earthbound Trading Co., Urban Outfitters, TJ Maxx for bags, Goodwill and any other cool thrift shop I run across.
Andra's outfit: I usually prefer to wear all black, but since summer is approaching and it's super hot in Tampa, I've been trying to throw some color in my wardrobe. My top is from a now-closed department store called Urban Behavior, pants from JCPenney, scarf from H&M, Steve Madden bag from TJ Maxx, watch from Charlotte Russe, bracelets from Beya, earrings from Rue 21, gold button ring- Marc by Marc Jacobs, and my wedges are old but I believe they came from Shoe Land.
