I often get questioned about where I shop. Probably the hardest question to answer because the answer is always everywhere. Rarely do I plan a shopping date. Most of my purchases are spontaneous and happen because I’m passing by a store. It’s difficult for me to shop online; nothing better than feeling and trying on pieces to ensure the fit is appropriate. BUT, what online shopping is good for is comparing prices! When I shop at boutiques (which I have been doing recently) I ALWAYS google an article of clothing or shoes of interest, first! If I can find a cheaper alternative or an online site that sells it for less, I purchase online. Get in the habit of doing that!
This entire look came from “cheap trendy stores.” You know, the H&M’s and Zara’s of the world. I wore this look, with a few additions here and there, to work and people were surprised to find my top and boots were from Forever 21! [Side note: Forever 21 has blown us all away by the quality of their clothing!] I now consider the store on the same quality level as Zara.
Okay- these boots were purchased like 2 years ago. I never wear them because I hate the cheap looking platform and the way they fall down if I’m not wearing it with jeans. Nonetheless, Over-the-knee (OTK) boots are in trend, so I brought them out for you!
Remember, it’s never what you wear! Always how you wear it!
