Here are a couple of thrift gems that I paired together. This black shaggy faux fur vest was the perfect amount of texture to complement this cute animal print mini dress–those elephants are totally adorbs, right?
It was 65 and sunny on this winter day in Southern Cali, so I was able to pull this look off. I loved it so much, that I decided to shoot it for all my #thriftyfashionistas out there.
Hope you’re feeling inspired to thrift your heart out!
P.S. This outfit was fierce, but the wind was fiercer, as you can see in the pic on the left. This was my son’s favorite shot, so I had to include it. Can’t argue with the little guy that’s shooting you for free.
#FlashbackFriday is upon us in the social media world. And it Fashion Friday here at SiNgLe MoMmY Files, so I found the perfect thrift tips & outfits-inspired video for you!
Social media maven @itsmyrayeraye, a popular beauty and fashion blogger from New York, teamed up with Glam and put together this fashion throwback video. She’s showing her fans how to thrift for 90s grunge and rave looks; one that’s authentic and one with a modern twist.
What really got me excited about this video was that fact that @allstyle7; Styler of Starz, Seller of vintage retail/Manager at Buffalo Exchange in LA and SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS fashion expert, helped pull these looks together. Check it out!
Oh and be sure to let me know your throughts about the looks.
Until Next Time Mommies!
This mommy needs a new pair of shoes! And one of the biggest perks of the New Year, are the sales, sales and more sales! Who doesn’t love that word!? I know I do! I’m a certified thrifty: a person that uses their money and other resources carefully and not wastefully. I hardly ever pay full price for anything, I’m always looking for sale, discounts, or freebies.
Our Christmas tree went up right after Thanksgiving. Sadly, there aren’t any presents under there yet. Mainly because I have a son that changes the items on his wish list every couple of days, after he scours through the items’ review section.
I basically have butterflies in my stomach, knowing that Christmas is

I’ve been rummaging through my closet, drawers, and shoe boxes in hopes of getting rid of some things and making room for more of my thrifting/sale/BOGO/percentage-off finds. I was so thrilled to re-discover this olive military style dress with gold buttons, that I forgot I owned. Would you believe I thrifted it several years ago and have never rocked it? How perfect it was for fall, so I quickly pulled it to the front of my closet.
This day I woke up feeling like I could take on the World…very

I put together this look on a beautiful fall day and ran just a few errands in these ridiculously stylish HIGH heels lol!
Outfit Deets: Denim shirt, faux fur vest, distressed jeans, vintage mint-condition Dooney & Bourke leather bag (unbelievable find), and Steve Madden booties were all thrifted. I bought the black fedora from Forever 21 for $23.
Hope you’re feeling inspired to thrift your heart out!
Until next time Mommies,
California’s fall season temps can range anywhere from the low to high 60s and 70s by day and the low to mid 50s by nightfall. This kind of weather requires layers of clothing that you can add or pull-off depending on the time of day. So draped cardigans are staples in my fall wardrobe. I love the open waterfall look of the cardigan, that can be paired with just about anything, from jeans and a tee, slacks and a dress shirt, to this black knee-length bodycon dress.
And I prefer the look of combat boots, over the popular multi-seasonal Ugg (it’s totally a Cali thing), because they are ridiculously cute, with a bit of edge, that I absolutely love! Oh! And comfy, because I opt for a ½ size bigger and wear mine with fuzzy socks.
Since embarking on my natural hair journey, I’ve decided that twists, which
It’s the weekend…TGIF!! You probably have plans to paint the town red, so I thought it would be the perfect time to give you what you need…a lil’ bit of expert fashion advice. Terrell Ransom Sr. a.k.a. @allstyle7 (to all you social networkers), fashion stylist to the stars (& moi) and co-owner of the Neon Styling Group, stopped by SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS this week to lend us some of his pearls along with this hot 80s video. Oh, I love those red lips. Enjoy ladies!
From The Desk of Terrell Ransom Sr:
Whether you believe it or not, image is very important on how people view you and more importantly how you view yourself. People who love themselves and are confident in how they look and feel, are usually those that are surrounded by people who love to be around them. There are exceptions to that rule lol.
As a fashion and image consultant I am a firm believer that beauty begins within and will ultimately exude through your outer appearance.
My advice to women is to take time to appreciate you. Take a spa day, get your nails done, or buy a new dress, even if you have no place to go. I live by the motto: Always be prepared! A date could be just around the corner. When you have an outfit already sitting in the closet you will alleviate half the stress of preparing for a date, event, ect. Learn your sizes. Note what makes you feel sexy. I guarantee if you feel sexy, you’ll look sexy and be SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE!!
Stay tuned as I continue to share advice and style tips on being “gone with the wind fabulous!!”
Until next time stay fierce and stay fly.
