A trendy silhouette in inexpensive basics can really create the illusion of a high-end look. Though I do agree with most fashion experts; buying high quality pieces that may be more expensive are much better long term investments that a bunch of cheaper, more trendy items, I’m not one to turn my nose up at a good deal. There are also a lot of great shops for budget shoppers that still have stuff that (though it may be made of cheaper synthetic fabric) will last you. This crop from Shop Tobi was still stitched immaculately, and has stood the test of muddy music festivals and long days in the city. My skirt was a $10 thrift find, and is easily the comfiest skirt that I own. By pairing it with accessories that are beautifully made (my bag) and provide some edge (my shoes), you can easily create stylish, attainable, and statement-making on a very restricted budget.
I’ve been trying to save after a summer spent traveling, so I am trying to get more mileage out of things I rummaged out of the back of my closet as well. After a seasonal cleanse (with a ton of my clothes soon to be posted to eBay) and some thoughtfully purchased fall staples, I really want to take my existing wardrobe the extra mile. (This is where investment pieces, unlike those featured in this outfit really make the difference!)
What about you guys, what are your big splurges for fall? Stay tuned for a wish list (from splurge to steal)!
