Ballin’ Bloggers on a Budget
You don’t have to spend like a baller to look like one.
It’s true! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look premium! We call this: budget & boujee!
When we were little girls, our parents rewarded our good grades with new outfits. We studied extra hard just to be able to shop at the sales rack because our father believed we should never buy anything full price.
As much as we love to “shop our Pinterest boards” and check out our favorite fashion bloggers latest expensive faves on Instagram, the reality is most people can’t spend like a baller to look like a one. So when we found out Zara was having their seasonal sale (where the entire store becomes the sales rack!) we were reminded that making cost-effective choices is paramount – especially as focused businesswomen.
There are 2 ways to make a $20 Zara skirt look $200.
- Highs & Lows rule: Pair lower cost pieces with higher pieces (or as we call them “investment pieces”).
- Solid with a touch of pattern: take a solid color and pair it with stripes or texture to chic up your look.
Let’s begin with Feven…vibe: J.Lo in ‘Maid in Manhattan’ Central Park vibes.
budget baller advice: Solids are your friends. Black always looks expensive.
investment piece: My sunglasses, a Christmas gift from Helena (it was on sale!) and my DVF Secret Agent bag, a gift from Diane herself.
And end with Helena!vibe: Dead Poet Society private boarding school realness.
budget baller advice: Invest money in designer sunglasses. It will completely transform an entire outfit.
investment piece: My Ray-Ban sunglasses and my YSL clutch, a gift from friend
Feven’s ballin’ in: $20 Zara shirt, $15 Zara turtle neck, Lanvin $149.00, handmade earrings from Ghana – given as a gift from a talented friend.
Helena’s ballin’ in: $49 Zara coat, $12.99 Zara striped button down, $99 Ray-bans
A little reminder, as our fave #GIRLBOSS Sophia Amoruso says, “Money looks better in the bank than on your feet.” Cash is QUEEN!
