From Designer Chic to Frugal Fashion
It happens when I’m searching for brilliant buys for my readers, that I stumble upon something that I like as well. (Okay, this happens all the time!) So as I was scanning Shopbop.com’s sale items, I found this Iisli dress.
The original cost? $338, which is completely out of my budget. However, it was on sale for $101.40! I thought, what a great bargain! I knew I had to have it.
When I find something that I love, something that I can’t resist–I envision it in my closet or better yet, I see myself walking the streets of New York City in it. For this dress I had the perfect fantasy: Relaxing at some upscale lounge sipping martinis.
It qualifies for four of the five categories of my self-created designer label buying guide. 1) I would wear it more than once, 2) it isn’t too trendy, 3) it would be a fashion staple for my personal style, and, 4) since I’m working more hours this summer, it is within my budget.
So why didn’t I buy it?
