It’s important to understand that it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it. While it is true that you get what you pay for, you also have to be realistic with what your money can afford to buy you. Most women love to ogle over Christian Louboutins shoe pornography, and we’re constantly exposed to the foot candy in the prices beyond our monthly salary. But, being a fashion person – a Fashionista – is a lot more than just having something for having sake.

I remember buying shoes from China town for less than a mean at a restaurant and getting loads of compliments. I still have that power, even in my wardrobe of choice (admittedly, I have a love for vintage plaid shirts, my over-sized H&M scarf, my leggings from Walmart and my jacket from Primark), but throw in a key item (my Michael Kors wellies) and I’m good to go. I can buy fashion magazines for days, and when I read the content, it only makes me respect the designers more, but even though I’m surrounded by fashion almost twenty-four hours a day, I really don’t feel compelled to stretch beyond my means. Well, luckily, every time I do, a good friend keeps me in check.

These buys are just as good.
