This outfit epitomizes my shopping/styling philosophy – a little T.J.Maxx, a little vintage, a little H&M, and a little designer sample sale-ing…
It is often assumed that a great outfit means that some serious money was spent (people think I’m kidding when I speak of my love for off-price retailers!). But I am a true believer that a great outfit can come from a variety of affordable stores/sites. This skirt, at $58 (which, is pretty unbelievable since it has real leather piping!) was the most expensive item… and the shoes, at $29.99, are the runner up. Not bad given the fact that these timeless pieces will remain in my wardrobe for years to come…
