“You love to dress up. When we go shopping you try on the hats, purses and shoes. You can get a little crazy in the stores.” – My mother in 1989 via my Baby Book

for social

Not much has changed. I still get crazy in stores.

The Lipstick Giraffe is a fashionable lifestyle blog based in Sacramento, CA. Here you’ll find a showcase of my personal style and on occasion, cuisine, design and words of encouragement. It’s all part of having it all, right?

My goal is to show you that you can look and feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank. Sale shopping is in my blood. My mom taught me how to stretch a dollar at a very young age and it’s something that has stuck throughout my life. In each blog post, I share tips on how to re-style items in order to get maximum wear out of them – always on a budget.

Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope that you come back for more! It doesn’t hurt to tell a friend, too. :)
