Thank you to Hadassah Artistry for my lovely wig unit. Contact her for your wig needs!

It’s no secret my eyes are immediately drawn to shiny and expensive things. But thank God for my husband who serves as an accountability partner when I want to unnecessarily splurge on a material item.

The idea of “high street fashion” originates from the United Kingdom. It’s a saying that refers to easily accessible fashion on ordinary busy streets vs. the one- off luxe items you’d typically see in designer stores.

Some of my favorite high street fashion stores are H&M and Zara because they are notorious for copying luxury styles but offering them at far more affordable prices. I really love H&M because they often collaborate with high end designers to give customers an opportunity to rock designer pieces for a fraction of the price. (Target is great at this, too.)

Asymmetrical tops have been trending for quite a Long time. They’re a great way to make a statement with your outfit without doing too much. This H&M top retails at $9.99, and the fabric stretches- which is great for women like me with protruding bellies.

My trousers are a designer collab collection with Giuliva Heritage. Gotta be honest- I never heard of them prior to buying these trousers. But after some research, I see that the designer is pretty expensive. These trousers were on sale for $8.99. But If you don’t have any luck online, check your local H&M stores!

I’ve loved the Alaia Bombe heels for so long; but not enough to pay $1300 for them. Was so excited to find these Sam Edelman dupes from Lord & Taylor on sale. FYI- many Lord & Taylor locations are closing. My location currently has 40-60% off the entire store. Thought you should know 🙂

Happy Shopping… on a budget!
