Love Yaya jacket, Target skinnies, Steve Madden boots
I was having a lengthy conversation with Issa from WeWearThings about bargain shopping and never paying full price for anything ever (except maybe purses which, I repeat, are INVESTMENTS). It's almost an obsession - finding the best deals possible. I message Clouds-of-Tulle daily about the deals I find, and she does the same. She found $6 pea coats today! LOL.
I noted that we're all in kind of an awkward salary brackets, as put in relation to a shared love for fashion. We'd like to afford Rick Owens jackets, Ann Demeulemeester sandals, Marni platforms, PL 3.1 carrot pants, A. Wang tanks, and Balenciaga bags (maybe this is just me haha). But realistically, we can't - or shouldn't.We're all now officially in our late 20's, have graduate and/or post-graduate degrees, and have been working for several years. However, with age comes responsibility. We have school loans in repayment, mortgages, car payments, insurance, taxes, 401Ks. THE LIST GOES ON.
So yes, we do make more money than say, a college student. But I, for one, have not gotten to the point where I can throw down $500+ for a pair of shoes without a second thought (although this IS the dream, am I right?). In fact, I'm supposed to be putting aside $500/month so that I can pay the taxes on my house at the end of the year.
At the same time, we're all pushing 30. Maybe we SHOULDN'T be shopping at Forever21 and Target as much?
Anyways this has suddenly become a long entry and the outfit above isn't even that interesting t make up for this rambling.
But check out these deals I got!
