Oooh! Tell me more!
I love this outfit because not only is it chic, it's affordable. The shirt, skirt, and accessories I wore were all under $80 collectively and these items are very versatile. In fact, my "shirt" is actually a mini dress. These colors and textures are great transitional clothing pieces for cool summer days or the change of seasons.
How much did you save?
The shirt was less than $20 so anytime you can get something cute, durable, and versatile thats pretty much priceless. LOL. Skirts like this can run you up to about $100 and I scored this skirt for about $36 so I banked about $64 by opting for faux leather and buying the skirt from an up and coming store rather than a popular chain.
No way! tell me your secrets!
When shopping at H&M check the fabric, make sure the item won't fall apart after 1 wash. Go for versatility and try to think of alternate ways to wear what you buy so you get your money's worth. I apply these rules to everything I buy and so far it's worked for me. =)
