Be the buyer.


So, I’m a little low on cash this week.. but I’m still high on style. Therefore, what do I do? I put together outfits using various online sources so that I can quench my shopping thirst. Most of the time, even if I am sitting okay with cash I will put together items that will not be realistically affordable until after college. Oh well. What do you think?

A bag to splurge on from ModCloth. Rings up at 155 dollars. Is it worth it to you?

To match, at a fraction of the cost I would invest in this blazer. Honestly, looking at this blazer even if I only have 30 dollars of shopping money, I might spend it. Look at it. Can you say preppy?

Once I said preppy my mind immediately wandered to JCrew. How could it not? I found these stretch twill pants in khaki for 89.50 and I would say my look in complete but, then I’d be lying. I can’t forget shoes!

Irregular Choice. Clearly. They are a beautiful mismatched heel that will tie this whole outfit together. One of the pinks is bound to mtach or at least enter the same color family as the handbag and the yellow will complement the yellow in the blazer.

Okay, preppies. Your turn. What are you matching up?

  1. Why do you have a NEED to shop? Could you quench your thirst for fashion by making something, re purposing old cloths/fabric from the thrift store, and make something truly unique and not spend any of cash? I’m not a fashionable person in the least, but the coolest fashion i ever saw was a friend of mine who would write pithy sayings on old white tee shirts with a black sharpie. My two cents… which is pretty much all i got!

    • It could be out of habit, but it’s just something I’ve always felt passionate about. Plus, I’m going to school for fashion merchandising.. so the business of fashion is obviously captivating to me. I adore creative thinking with thrift store items, and refinishing or designing apparel is very interesting. Kudos to your friend for thinking outside the box and thanks for your comment!
