I am a strong believer that fashion has no rules and that anyone can be fashionable. It’s not because someone owns a pair of Louboutin and other designer brands that it is guaranteed she or he will look stylish. Fashion is a passion and a way to express yourself, your style, your personality and that’s why it is important to have a unique and different style. I would like to think that my fashion sense is unique. I am aware that some of the pieces I wear are not liked by everyone but that’s what I love about it. The comments I often receive about my outfits are “that’s different, I would not wear it but I like it on you”. My friends are very honest and they sometimes tell me that they do not like what I am wearing (how dare they ) but I would just reply “As long as I do” – that’s French honesty! How boring would it be if everyone liked the same things?!
My point is fashion is abstract, personal and limitless. You do not have to spend a fortune to look stylish. I love designer brands and own a couple of nice pieces but reality is, I am an everyday girl and I cannot afford to spend money on expensive items. And to be honest, I also love combining different brands with different style as it gives you more options.
The outfit I am wearing here costs all together £50.97! I hope you will agree it does look stylish and fashionable.
The off-the-shoulder top is from H&M and costs £8.99.
I love everything about this top; the Bardot style, the bright red colour and the little Latino touch it gives. I have picked this top because it looks great with the green trousers as they have red accents but it would look as good with a pair of skinny jeans.
The trousers are also from H&M and cost £12.99
Floral pattern is so on trend this and I really like it as it is unusual. When I saw those green trousers in the shop, my eyes were caught straight away. And when I saw the price I knew it was a done deal!
The green bag is from Le Château and I bought it for £3.99 in a charity shop, it looked brand new hence I bought it. You could tell straight away it was a great brand. That’s the beauty of charity shops, you can really find nice pieces if you’re lucky. I always go there on the hunt for bags like this.
These shoes from Dorothy Perkins are everyday shoes which I got last year for £25 and they are now £7! I wear them all the time as they are very comfortable and they also go with everything!
Hope you enjoyed this fashionable & affordable post !
