Bank Breaker V$. Bargain

Most of us dream of carrying a hot designer bag on our arm. But, what if you can’t afford one? I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford those high priced beauties. I get out there and find a designer-inspired handbag. I found this gorgeous Lanvin Amalia bag, but it’s going to cost you $3,105.00 at Barney’s New York. Now, that’s a “Bank Breaker!” Scroll down to find out where the “Bargain” bag comes from.

The “Bargain” bag is the Audrey Leatherette bag from Forever 21 and costs a whopping $22.80. It’s definitely inspired by Lanvin’s design with it’s quilted look, front pocket, and its chain and ribbon wrapped handle.

Would you buy the “Bargain” bag?

OOTD: Back to Basics

If there is one thing I love about shopping, it’s getting more bang for my buck. By this, I mean buying a lot of basics that I can rework into other outfits. I love this gray vest and simple black cotton dress. They can be worn with many different pieces that already exist in my bargainista wardrobe. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them. This entire outfit cost around $30. Yay bargains!! How many versatile pieces do you have in your closet?

Vest: Marshalls
Dress: Ross

Tassels, fringe, or strands? What would you call this jewelry trend? I tend to lean toward fringe.That’s the first word that comes to mind. Wait, does it really matter? Not really. What I do know is that Topshop is all over it! Are they ever going to open a store in Los Angeles? Hurry up already!!

ASOS on the brain.

Beach Chic on a Budget

I’ve definitely been craving a day at the beach. I just want to grab my favorite magazine and a book and just lounge! When I was packing for San Diego last week, I realized that my entire beach outfit cost less than $35! That’s swimsuit, sun hat, and flip flops.

Well, you must know I’m a budgeting master. And just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look chic on the beach, right? Well, the entire look I put together (below) was only $95.83! This is definitely a look that will carry you through the entire summer.

Wish List: Nordstrom

It’s that time again. I’m in love with these tops from Nordstrom. I know I won’t buy them because they aren’t in my budget at the moment. So, like I always do…I will admire from afar. Also known as e-window shopping.


Why Anthropologie?

Anthropologie…why? Why must you have the most beautiful accessories and shoes that I can’t afford? I think you’re purposely trying to torture me.
