In the all too famous words of Jessie J, “It ain’t about they moneyyyy.” I’ve always been a savvy shopper. It’s something my parents have taught me. Both my parents are pro sale shoppers & my grandpa is the king of thrift store finds. I’ve learned from the best. I’m also the #1 biggest fan of “hand-me-downs.” Heck, my high school drill coach gave me this shirt lol.
Now let’s be honest. There is SO. MUCH. MORE. to life than what’s in season, who wore what & what the latest trends are. However, clothes have always made me happy. Not the actual peice of clothing itself, but the ideas that come with it. After a big haul at the store (department stores to thrift stores) I lay in bed restless & giddy. It’s seriously a problem. Style goes beyond the clothes. It’s how you put together an outfit, tell a story. I challenge you in the new year to focus more on style, than fashion. Create, discover & learn. I am always so inspired by other bloggers, models, fashion editors & designers. I love taking what I love about their looks & incorporating it into my own style!
Although I LOVE a good sale, I also believe in quality. It’s okay to spend a lot of money on an item, but it better last you forever. Literally, the rest of your life. I never spend more than $20 on a trendy dress & $5 on the newest, coolest accessories. BUT classic items like bags, boots & certain articles of clothing can be worth the splurge. I’ve had the same boots since I was in 8th grade. They’re still in style & going strong. Think about how many pairs of cheap ankle boots you’ve thrown away since 8th grade... Really it saves you money.
I have rewritten this blog post several times because I feel like I’m just rambling. At the end of the day, the only thing I can write that really matters is, BE WHO YOU ARE!! Have a happy & safe weekend!!
