As much as I would love to have the GG Marmont, dropping almost $1,500 on one bag just doesn’t make sense to me at this point in my life. Even though this bag is not JUST a bag, but one of the most beautiful things I have ever set my eyes on… so beautiful, in fact, that I can smell that luscious, plump leather through my phone screen right now, and every day that I look at this beaut.
What I’m here to tell you, and what I hope my Instagram photos speak to you, is that you don’t have to be a billionaire entrepreneur, millionaire celebrity, or any other form of “rich person” to “look like a million bucks.”
Anyone who knows me knows that I am an online shopaholic. I. Shop. A. LOT. But what most of those people don’t know is that the very first thing I do when I shop any website, is click on CLEARANCE or SALE, then I filter the results from lowest to highest price. Then I scroll through all the results until I reach a certain price point that I’m not willing to go beyond for that item.
For example, I’m shopping for a fun, summery dress for a wedding later this month. Since it’s at the end of August, I know I’m probably not going to wear it more than once this year, and weddings usually require a girlier look than I’m into, so my absolute cap on spending is $100. I start with that baseline in mind, then I start scrolling through the results until I hit that point, and if I don’t find anything I like in that range, I move on to the next store.
Here are some of my recent finds that I would consider pretty damn cheap, but (hopefully) do not look pretty damn cheap, with the right styling. (Click through the photos to see how much each item is!)
Hope that was helpful, lovelies!
Until next time –
