How many times have you bought something, worn it a few times and then gotten tired of it, but because you spent a lot of money on the single piece clothing, you couldn’t just dispose of it and buy something new?
Well, I have done that many times and every time I would chastise myself because one, I was spending a lot of money and two, not all clothing items are practical and some of them are just not worth the money we spend on them! So, I decided to do this blog and post a few things that’s I’ve found to be quality items and budget friendly. These are the items you can wear a few times and not feel bad about passing it along to a donation, again for two reasons, one is that it’s still in good shape because of the quality it’s made with and two because you didn’t spend too much money on it and it’s easy to let go of.
I know, this contradicts the whole aspect of better buy something more expensive, but good quality and it will last you a long time and in turn will save you money. But let’s be realistic, how many of us actually like to wear things longer than one, okay, maybe two seasons?
Also, another point I want to make, and I don’t want to sound like a hypocrite, but certain things like shoes, sometimes need to be a little pricey, simply because cheap shoes are bad for your feet! And just to clarify, I mean expensive shoes because of their quality not because of the name that’s on the shoe! I will be posting a blog on shoes soon and another issue that has been brought to my attention recently, so look out for that one, but for now, back to clothes and cheaper fashion!
Here are just a few things from Forever21.com:
Contrast Zippered Dress $27.80
Colorblocked Shorts w/ Belt $17.80
And now a sample from the amazing variety of cheap quality clothing at H&M and the exciting thing is, you can now shop online with H&M!! Here are a couple things that I found to be pretty nice!
Blazer $49.95 – Short, fitted jacket in glittery fabric with 3/4-length sleeves and front pockets. Lined, 45% cotton, 55% linen. Excellent quality for $50 bucks!
I hope the point I was trying to make with this blog makes sense. I’m open to opinions and criticism, so please don’t hesitate to write to me or ask me anything.
