“Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.”
This is one of my all time favorite fashion quotes because I couldn’t agree with it more! Fashion is what we see on the runway, in magazines and on the hanger. But style. Style is EVERYTHING. It’s how you make a piece YOURS!
The amazing news is that I found this super cute and cozy sweater at Walmart for under $15!! The bad news is, I can’t find it online so that is why I linked similar styles above but you should definitely check out your local store!! The Walmart site is not the most user friendly site in the world. Also bad news, I obviously can’t be trusted anywhere. 🙂
I walked into the local Walmart a few weeks ago for gift bags and walked out with 5 sweaters and earrings. For real guys. They were so darn cute and I just could not pass up that price!
Naturally, I styled them with my favorite distressed jeans and my newest Trendlee bag. If you didn’t read my last post about Trendlee, you can read it here. I mean, how gorgeous is this Louis Vuitton bag?! And it can be yours for a fraction of the original retail price.
You may be thinking to yourself, Walmart sweater and with a Louis bag? Yes girl. That’s where my blog post title and favorite fashion quote come into play. It’s not about what brand you are wearing, it’s about how it makes you feel when you wear it. I love to splurge on certain items. Especially bags, sunglasses and sometimes shoes, but when it comes to basic tops, sweaters and such I go the more affordable route because really I don’t know how long I am going to love those things. Now a Louis Vuitton? I can guarantee a life of eternal love there. 🙂 So the splurge is total worth it.
Do you guys feel the same? What are items you save on and where do you justify the splurge?
I would love to hear!
