Tribute/Double Take

sept 20 2010burncoatlegshairflip
Wearing H&M jacket, lace top from Marshalls, random black tank underneath, F21 trousers snipped into shorts, F21 socks, Payless booties

Hello fellow readers...are you starting to see a trend? Well here it is..I've decided to utilize the items in my closet and make the most out of them without spending too much(this is basically a fancy way of saying, I'm broke so I need to have a shopping ban). As you can already tell, a recent post already features this lace top. But you know what? I'm not a high society girl. I don't have money(I couldn't even afford bubble tea today). I think the thing is that too many fashion bloggers today make it seem like the norm is to own designer pieces and to constantly have hauls and mini shopping excursions when the truth is, most of us can't relate to that, let alone afford that. I'm not saying that all bloggers do this, but we've all seen it before. Style isn't about how expensive or what label your clothes are by--it's who puts the outfit together.
So what I want to say is that as long as you love what you're doing, keep doing it. I can't afford Alexander Wang and TopShop is already a huge stretch, but as long as I love fashion and love what I wear, it doesn't really matter. Psht, I got my whole life to make money...then we'll be talking :)

PS. Anyone notice the vintage photo effects? Shoutout to one of my favorite blogs, WishWishWish. Plus, anyone notice my similar hairflip to JessLovesFred? Well, now you do.

Wishing you less suckish Mondays, because well, they do suck.

I love your outfit here! The lace top and all the neutral colors, very chic.

And oh good luck with the shopping ban! I've been there many many times but still I ended up going home with a pair of shoes or clothes. My mom is the best!! haha :)

I really like your jacket and shorts! Great combo!
And, I agree with you on how some fashion bloggers just constantly make videos about their "hauls" every other day. They keep on buying and buying.. even though the stuff they buy are cute, they're just sending out the wrong message. Anyway, I totally agree with you on style is about how you mix things up & put together a good outfit, even with the most ordinary pieces of clothing. :)
