GLAM & FAB BUDGET!!!


Today I'll tell u one little story about myself.... If u have the desire and time to find out something more about me- continue 'cause u'll find one interesting fact about my outfits and style. If u bother reading this- feel free to skip and check the pics. Completely your choice...
My dear blog friends I'll share with u one of my let's say talents. FINDING REALLY REALLY CHEAP THINGS THAT LOOK QUITE EXPENSIVE (or at least u would never-ever guess the true price)!! Sounds familiar?! Let's continue....

When I was in the high school (and after college) I didn't have that kind of the budget (nor my parents were unfortunately able to help me) which would allow me to dress like some of the "IN girls". So I had to find some other solution (along with the part time job) to support my style image that I wanted to achieve. Visual effect was always very important to me. So I started to wander the city finding some fantastic things on sales; in the small unknown boutiques; in the other further parts of the town and even in the China quart. Yes some of the best things I found there, although now they have lower quality so I prefer items from Turkey.
Back then I didn't like/want the others to find out the correct price 'cause everybody thought it's at least 10 times more! But today I'm so so so sick of pretending in each sense and way! I'm sure enough in who I am and what I want to present with my image and creativity that I'm more than proud for having this talent! It's so developed now that there is no need for me to search anymore, these gorgeous things are coming alone to me in whatever part of the world I am!!!lol  People close to me (like mum, dad, boyfriend, girlfriends) have only one thing to say: "U paid 1eur for this necklace???? U're genius, I would never find this in my life!!"!!:))
Yes today I have a lot more money than I had before (for sure I'll have more,haha) and I can afford something more expensive from time to time. But nothing absolutely NOTHING can compare with my heartbeat sound when I find some SHOES or JACKET FOR 5-10 EUROS!!!! At that very moment my eyes are sparkling, I'm glowing and feeling so energized and satisfied!!:) I will splurge on shoes, bags, good jacket/coat or watch, but I will never splurge on clothes (shirts, blouses, jeans, pants...)!!! Don't believe me?? U'll see if u stay with me and my blog in the future!;)
So from now on I've decided to include some prices of the items I paid for less, just to show u one more time that the good style doesn't always mean high budget (or spending abnormal amount of the money for some piece)!!! The style can be more than affordable but still so beautiful and unique, so U!:)

  6. Love it! The shoes were at an amazing price and they look fantastic! Style is not about how expensive are the things you wear but being able to combine, wear and rock anything you wear no matter how much or little expensive it is!

  25. Jelena! I love to read everything you have to say and your writing is so passionate! It's so great to discover one of your talents and it's something that I wish I have! I used to be in your position before where I was completely clueless about fashion and a long, long time ago, when I was a poor college student, I bought the clothes from Walmart and Ross to just make it work. But now I can start to wear clothes I want from stores like Topshop and a little pricey sometimes from BCBG and DKNY but I always love the sales!

    You manage to look fabulous no matter what you wear and someday, we'll go shopping together :-) xoxoxoo
