HOW I SCORE LOOKS IN SHOE STRING BUDGET

Today’s post is all about – what one should do when one cant spend much? Without without wipping out credit and debit cards

If you know me, you know I love a good coalesce of luxury, high-streets, thrifts and bargain shops fashion. Something I enjoy in fashion is to look my absoulte best while spending least amount of rupees, and I love sharing my ways and stories about the same so, I am decoding these 2 looks for you guys!

Lets start my keeping one rule in mind- #WEARYOU make sure you know what fashion /style speaks you and what you did like to don to feel you!

One thing I always make sure regardless from where I shop is to buy things that blends with my aura and perosona!

LOOK 1 
Before I came to Bangalore from my last visit at my home town, I decided to thrift hunting and thrifting to me is like an art! Once you master it = your closet will be full of joy! Also, let me warn you guys thrifting ain’t a glamorous experience unless you decode the fun and for me s no less than an art exhibition! I look for items from other fashion eras whilst I thrift as old fashion is always timeless! TURTLE NECK #GUCCI authentic just for Rs 100 what a deal right? Paired this turtle neck with a pencil skirt thrifted by my MOTHER for just Rs 80! Well. I must say I got it from my MAMA! And to augment the outfit I wore my another thrift trophy – this pair of heels was love at first sight! The heel so beautifully shaped and the stone embedded strap just elevated the look as a whole! The bag for this look is however not thrifted but it’s one of my last season’s best buy! Completed the look with a hairpin with marble detailing

The ZIP detailed cargo is however is about Rs 1069 which is quite an expensive one but the material is really good! And for footwear I found this NB sneaker LEGITIMATE one again from the same thrift lane back home for Rs 400 I was filled with joy after this buy!

The way we dress is how we make an impact generally on others perception to some extent but thats not the important aspect! Thr real deal lies in being happy withtin oneself, confident and above all being able to express one’s unique style and personality!

THRIFT TRIUMPH part 1

A series that I have been hankering to set forth and transcribe with all of you , to highlight and address my affordable finds .

As much as I love and fancy all things luxury I equally love to find different approach to fashion each time and that ” includes thrifting and buying during sale ” I HAVE NO SHAME ON THIS ADMISSION ! There is no harm in thinking a bit outside way and in working with what we’ve got .  I feel extremely blessed to have so many people find inspiration from what I wear and how I express !

IDEA OF THRIFTING  :

Don’t do it for the sake of trend rather find pleasure in discovering some thing different and  to create something disparate .

Have the ability to create your own style , play around and create .

Love the idea of spending less money and still looking on point .

I am no believer of trend or whatsoever but I believe that each trend has to do from the past and there are many instances to that  and the fun part while thrifting is to find the treasures from the past long gone while they wait for a fresh eye and creativity .

TIPS :

Lot of patient ! Dig till you Dip 

( WONT come easy )

Be committed to find the treasure and keep your eyes open .

Bit of luck and lots of hard work !

Takes years to find perfection (Not there yet) 

I love thrifting because it gives me immense pleasure to do or to create something from scratch by my self with a bit of inspiration from here and there and when I style and wear them it becomes my shield that I am so proud off and gives me more confidence !

 Blue Shirt : Thrifted From Koramangala Rs 80 INR

White and yellow shirt same place Rs 150 INR

Striped Pants Old one from Boyfriend’s wardrobe

You can always pair expensive and inexpensive together , blended well creates an amazing LOOK !
