Yesterday we were bringing in groceries and I was thinking about my dream job - a fashion designer. I was just imagining about how fabulous it would be if I could ever be something like that.
Then today I was scrolling through my What I'd Wear Pinterest board and I kept interrupting my husband's game to show him pretty clothes & to tell him how happy I'd be with anything on the board.
Then I thought about how expensive everything on my board is, individually.
Then I thought about how I am a bargain shopper (penny-pincher, really) and how I have relatively good taste and good judgement in clothing.
Then I thought about how probably the entire world would be eternally grateful for my fashion opinions.
Then I thought about how that isn't true, but it might be fun to put together a fashion blog post, regardless.
So. This first part is a compilation of 4 things I love on Pinterest, pricing included:
a. MADWELL · $148
b. STEVEN ALAN · $75
c. J.CREW · $90
d. NORDSTROM · $60
And here are some alternatives that would be equally as French chic (because what else would you call grey stripes and black pants?) but significantly less expensive...
a. TARGET tee · $20
b. FOREVER21 tee · $13
a. H&M pants · $15
b. OLD NAVY pants · $25
a. FOREVER21 bag · $25
b. H&M bag · $17
a. FOREVER21 sandals · $18
b. TARGET sandals · $27
c. H&M sandals · $30
And, if you're interested in spectacular jewelry for equally spectacular prices, these all would be adorable with the above outfit:
a. FOREVER21 origami necklace · $3
b. TARGET pink belt · $13
c. FOREVER21 bike watch· $18
d. FOREVER21 fork ring · $5
e. FOREVER21 green ring · $3
f. FOREVER21 gold cuff · $6
accessory total: $48
So, if you average the alternatives, you'd have the following total, roughly:
Is there anything you like better than the Pinterest pieces (besides the prices)?
