If you are really on Instagram, and you post pictures of your outfit, can it really make any sense to say you are looking at the “cost-per-like” rather than “cost-per-wear” for how much it was worth? I wonder what my Instagram Cost-Per-Like would be. Psst! I am on IG here @saverspender…where you can see tons of my outfits like the one above.
I’d like to say that a lot of what I wear is really not IG-like. I am not in cutoff bum-baring shorts, showing bras and lingerie under blazers and going to the office, or in super high heels and jeans on repeat. I wear actual, work-appropriate, comfortable outfits that look nice, but aren’t trendy or trail-blazing for the most part.
I am still contemplating buying a vegan leather pencil skirt – this one from Banana Republic felt so soft and is much better priced than real leather. Honestly though, would I wear it to the office? Or ever? Or I just want it..?
Tragedy of Common Cashmere: This is why I don’t buy cheap cashmere, and because I won’t drop $500 on a sweater, I buy most of mine secondhand and it has been worth it. I have seen less pilling and it is better than buying something that just isn’t worth the price, even at $100.
Speaking of which, this J. Crew cashmere coat is double-faced and at $1700 (so a definite NO for me), but it is pretty much what I have been looking for.
Adina’s area for thrifting is FULL of high-end designer stuff. Whenever I go to the stores here in Montreal, I barely find one or two pieces, but then again I don’t go as often (time, mostly is the issue), and I prefer to do most of my shopping online. Less messy but I won’t be finding YSL or Smythe jackets for $10 although I found a Dolce & Gabbana like-new coat for $150, retailing still in stores for $4000.
I petted this Banana Republic long, soft duster jacket in the store, and liked it. I already bought two in camel and a light grey, so I don’t need another one but this one is really quite nice.
Loved Xin’s Money Tour concept. You go through a credit card statement and explain what you bought. *cough* Mine would be filled with lots of purchases and returns.
I love the sleek minimalist lines of this UGG Gracen boot. It looks perfect for autumn and winter.
