Girl Crush of the Week: Kimberly Smith of Penny Pincher Fashion

A leopard umbrella? We were obviously destined to be friends!!

When we ask ladies to be our Girl Crush of the Week, we never know how it's going to turn out. Some never respond, some keep us hanging for a few days and some respond right away. This week's girl crush wrote me back right away and I immediately texted Allison that she was IN! You see, Kimberly is one of my major girl crushes!!

I think I first came across Kimberly on while browsing photos on Pose. After seeing her in chic outfit after chic outfit, I had to know where she was shopping. You see, Kimberly is the brains behind the blog Penny Pincher Fashion so I knew there were going to be some great finds on her blog. Little did I know that PPF would become my destination for faboo deals. I mean, J.Crew look-alikes? Yes please. Girly-girl accessories under $25? TELL ME MORE.  I mean, give my current financial state, could there be a better blog for me to follow?

Stripes and sequins?! Tell me more.
