” Luxury to me is not about buying expensive things. it’s about living in a way where you appreciate things” – Oscar De La Renta
I love to search instagram for new stylish bloggers in the U.S. and all over the world. There are so many beautiful women showing their style, designer outfits, and fashionalbe looks. The more I search the more I notice famous fashion bloggers, who have hundreds of thousands of followers, are wearing clothing that is not in the budget of over 99% of women. Their pictures on Instragam are from Chanel, Dior, and YSL stores and of course who out there doesn’t want to see that? Every women’s dream is to spend time in those high end stores with an unlimited budget. Of course its easy to be stylish when your credit card has no limit and other bills and responsibilities are not on the fore front of your mind. The real talent lies in finding items that match and which come together to form a beatiful outfit without breaking the bank. It doesn’t matter what piece you choose a high end retailer because all of them are in style. Even Marilyn Monroe once said, “it’s easy to be beautiful when you have money, but try to do it without.” The label speaks more than the actual outfit! What do you do if your budget is limited and you can not shop at high-end designer retailers? You begin to question yourself if you can be stylish at a lower price point.
I agree those high end stores carry clothing which are stylish and are very fashionable, but I’m on a clothing budget and I still want to wear what the top fashion bloggers wear. What do I do then? I found the answer to my question at stores like Nordstrom Rack, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and surprinsgly Macy’s. You can find all the top brands with at times up to a 80-90% discount from original retail! Why pay full price when you can get it at a discount! Being a half season or full leason late will not make you out of stlye! You still feel great getting high end clothes and even better you can get more of them and not over pay. At the end of the day its still just a piece of fabric sawn together!
So here I’m sharing with you the outfits that I fell in love with! All my favorite designers for very affordable prices! My personal favorite and the number one trend for this season is an over-sized coat by Boy band of outsiders in light blue; actually, this coat was the inspiration for my whole outfit! Original price was $2700, I got it at Nordstrom rack for $475; pretty good deal right? Then also at Nordstrom Rack I got these adorable jeans by Fendi (orig. $950, I snagged them up for 69$) and this funny sweater by Kenzo (orig. $550, I got for $114). Shoes by Jessica Simpson (orig $119, I got they for $39 at Macy’s), they are so cool and unexpectedly comfortable! The sun glasses were a gift from my lovely man who supports my fashion addiction, and I can just guess how much they cost but I love them to death and they are by Fendi. So instead of spending over $5000$ I got exactly same stuff for less than a thousand!
I think it’s not smart to buy super expensive clothes that the fashion world tells us to wear. Go out and have fun, find good deals and build your own style!
