Shopping and Splurging

Hey Garish Gal’s! It’s Allie!

With National Margarita Day last week and National Tortilla Day this Wednesday, I thought it would be nothing less than appropriate to celebrate the day in between: Taco Tuesday!!!!

That’s right: Tacos! Who doesn’t love tacos!?! I know what all of you are probably thinking,…”This is a fashion blog; Why are we talking about food?” or “Quit, you’re making me hungry!”but the truth is, every girl has those splurge days when all they want to do is snack on some of their favorite foods! I figured that I mine as well share what some of the Garish Gal girls love to eat the most, and the top two items on the list: Tacos and Donuts!  (not together, of course… also, donut blog to potentially come in the future)

Tacos and clothes are somewhat alike if you think about it in a really weird way. Some outfits are similar to another, yet none are the same. Tacos bring many flavors to the table, as do each item of clothing we put on. Some are colorful, bold, tasteful, spicy, or bland. Garish Gal isn’t about the “bland tacos”, Garish means to be lurid, so just like clothes, tacos should also be original, unique, and stand out. Which is why posted below are some of Garish Gal’s newest arrivals that will satisfy your hunger in the fashion world, along with three amazingly unique but easy taco recipes to match your spicy outfits.

Steal vs. Splurge

At Garish Gal we pride ourselves in finding great quality, fashion forward pieces, at an affordable price!

Our buyers are constantly looking for products that look like higher end pieces without that insane price tag!

So it is only fitting that we share our Steal vs. Splurge inspiration!

1. Pleated Midi Skirt– A lot of readers have asked how to wear a midi skirt without aging your look. Finding a great midi skirt can be challenging! If you aren’t sure about the whole idea, spending a lot of money on a trendy skirt doesn’t seem logical. However, instead you can grab our version of this skirt at a MUCH better price. Tibi has a great midi skirt, but the price is at bank breaking status. At Garish Gal, we were looking for a great, comparable piece that doesn’t leave you without grocery money for the next month or two.

2. Jogger Pants– The athletic trending jogger pants have become a fall/winter staple this season. BB Dakota has a great, budget friendly version that is easy to wear and extremely comfortable. Current/Elliot has a couple of pairs in their current collection that are a little more pricey, so grabbing the BB Dakota pair is a no brainer.

3. Pleather Shift Dress– This is one of my favorite dresses in my closet. I literally wear it all the time. In warmer weather I throw on a pair of heels and wear it to dinner. Since the Midwest chill has set in, I usually throw on tights, a cardigan, and a scarf to warm up my look (like pictured below). True Religion has an extremely similar looking shift dress for a lot more. On Garish Gal, Rodella is $57 on sale!

4. Envelope Skirt– I love this update to the pencil skirt. Still work appropriate, but also sexy- this skirt is a great wardrobe add. Alexander Wang has a beautiful blue envelope skirt that the model is casually wearing. This skirt body is great because it can be worn to work, or worn as a casual look. Alexander Wang has a similar version that will cost you a pretty penny to test out this trend.
