I know that I haven’t posted a lot of looks lately. That’s due to many reasons. The main reason is that I DO take photos of my outfits, but for some reason I can’t find ANY pictures! Another reason is I put my work and my photography business first… but right I’m in the middle of being bored of my own style. Every year I like to go through a personal style renaissance, but I personally have not been inspired.
I can’t tell you that last time I physically stepped into a mall.
The thought if walking into a mall is exhausting enough.
The fashion blogs are getting worse.
Not style wise, but price wise.
I feel as though a lot of the fashion bloggers are selling out to brands.
It seems like everyone is wearing the same thing… and the things I like cost way too much money. Honestly, I can’t imagine myself spending $800 on a pair of shoes. You know what $800 can do for me? Pay rent. Pay bills. Be used on photo equipment. Black Friday anyone?
However, I am the queen of frugal.
Etsy is my best friend.
I like to go to thrift shops to buy old furniture and refurbish them.
I PROUDLY ask for discounts at retail stores. And I get them 95% of them time.
If a brand new item is slightly broken and is marked at a generous amount off, I pick it up, inspect how much it’s going to cost me to fix, and then request an additional amount off. Why? Because that’s how people who have money, keep their money… by not overspending and ACTIVELY ASK for discounts.
I’m getting off track here.
The picture above just shows how effortlessly fashionable some women can be. Right now I’m in the middle of figuring out how to get myself to that level without having to fork over too much money.
PS… how much do you love the shoes?
