Firstly if you have managed to find this post, clicked on it and start reading, can I just say that “I am immensely grateful and thank you “!
I’m new to this blogging gig and to be honest I’m still finding my way. A number of exceptionally successful Fashion Bloggers in this space are full of stunning photos of themselves in various gorgeous outfits. However I’m no supermodel, I’ve always had an aversion to photos of myself (even on my wedding day) and the selfie thing turns me cold. Maybe it’s a generational thing, but I have needed to find an alternative avenue to showcase my passion and love of fashion, gorgeous things and shopping !
Whilst endlessly scrolling through the internet for inspiration, I often find myself stopping on an item that ends up being one of the most expensive items listed, and find myself saying “of course it is !”. The Balmain Blazer is one of those items, whilst I truly covet an original, I honestly know that (without winning the lottery) I’m never going to own one.
Therein lies the inspiration for my latest themed post “Shop the Look” (I hope you are still reading)! I’ve recently done posts on The Best Women’s Blazers, The Best Stylish White Sneakers and Must-Have Oversized Tote Bags, and have decided to combine these with an outfit look sheet including Jeans (Jeans….now there is a mine field and future post) at various price points. Obviously, these can be mixed for a cost-effective look, celebrities and fashionistas have normalised the mixing of high-end items with high street brands for a number of years now. The exceptionally elegant and effortlessly chic Meghan Markle is a great example of this, her Sunglasses in Option $$ are budget friendly and sell out every time they are released.
For me personally, the criteria for inclusion in a post is “Would I buy it?” and “Would I wear it?”, this is especially important when looking at including a more expensive item, some items are so expensive that I find it almost unconscionable to purchase irrespective of the amount of money I potentially had. And also at the Budget end, it’s easy to find cheap items, but they still need to be of reasonable quality and a reputable brand etc e.g. there are millions of cheap white sneakers on the market, but on a high-use item I’d still go with a known brand (hope you are still with me).
I have created the following “$$$$ to $ Affordability Key Chart” which could be explained as follows ;
“$$$$” – “Generally not in my lifetime” (although would if I could).
“$$$” – “Splurge-worthy items” (would on a cost-per-wear basis).
“$$” – “Generally Affordable” (easily would)
“$” – “Budget-friendly” (would for easily attainable copy-cat look).
And to finally get to the point of the post
Shop the Look $$$$
Shop the Look $$$
Shop The Look – $$
Shop the Look – $
