When it comes to fashion, I love to do the occasional splurge on shoes and handbags, but when it comes to my overall personal style, I’m all in favor of mixing high and low. When I go shopping, I’m open to everything – thrift stores to department stores; mass market retailers to small boutiques; online and offline. If it fits me well, is constructed well and works in my wardrobe, it’s mine. Though I might go all out on my accessories, I also can’t resist a good steal. In fact, many of my favorite pieces have a “steal story. But no one ever knows because if you mix the pieces the right way, your entire look reads high-end and expensive. It’s true – money can’t buy style! Kmart has a great fashion section with tons of pieces that are low-priced but look high-end. Here’s a few of the items I’m checking out for Fall from Kmart:
I’ve been on the hunt for a great leather skirt and found this one – the Jaclyn Smith Women’s Leather Skirt for $69.99 at Kmart. This is a great example of getting a high-end look at a low price (yes, $69.99 is low for a leather skirt. Most I’ve seen start at $99).
Another item I love is a versatile dress, like this Sofia by Sofia Vergara Women’s Animal Print Grecian Dress, for $29.99. The colors are great for Fall and the print is super versatile – I can pair it with a leather jacket, a fur vest, or even a neutral blazer.
It boils down to the fact that dropping a ton of cash on a trend isn’t an automatic to cool. Style is a cocktail. Part confidence. Part creativity. Part risk. When you got it, you got it. And that’s why others want it. Because money can’t buy style.
