Cheap and Chic

Not everyone of us can afford a top-to-toe designer ensemble ( I can't). The solution- Cheap and Chic. Be  eclectic, creative, innovative.
  • Get thrifty- trawl op shops, vintage boutiques and markets for one-off finds.  You save money that way.

  • Customize- everyone’s got a needle and thread! Update old pieces with a few quick snips, a bit of hemming or by adding embellishments such as sequins or tassels. You can also do this with op-shop finds that may have amazing patterns or detailing but an out-dated cut.

  •  Be inspired- if you are not confident in pulling together an outfit by yourself, look to some photos of celebrities or street style blogs such as The Sartorialist or Facehunter. You can get a good idea of what proportions work and which garments look good together, then go searching for inexpensive replicas.

  •  Rattle your chains - It is a good idea to buy all the current- but-unlikely-to-endure trends from chains stores.
  •   Invest in classics-  if you want to buy designer, buy items that won’t become out-dated.  Cashmere sweaters, black shoulder bags, trenches, etc.
  •  Dress for your body and yourself- at the end of the day, if you’re wearing something that fits you and that you love, you’re always going to look beautiful most of the time.
Keep it real guys. Tada
