Ever since I was a little girl I loved dressing up and slaying! I love pocketbooks, socks with ruffled lace, shirts with bows, dresses covered in flowers. I used to get in trouble daily my mother would yell “Ericka you don’t wash any damn clothes!” I would change my outfits or as we call them now looks 2 to 3 times a day. My mother was the opposite of girly-ness and thought so much focus on being cute was trivial. Oh, but my grandmother. We were 2 peas in a pod! I remember when she bought me my first coach purse for my 13￼ birthday. My mother was so annoyed, she didn’t understand the purpose of a 13-year-old with a purse over $100. From the time I was a little girl my grandmother and I would shop and eat lunch she was my favorite shopping partner and fashion icon. I still remember going to G.Fox when it was a department store. My favorite navy romper that I wanted to wear every day is still a clear memory. My grandmother and I stayed in Filenes and Lord And Taylor those were her favorites. The two most important things she taught me about being cute is, #1- its for you. Looking presentable was ultimately showing yourself love. #2 you can look cute without breaking the bank. Here’s my favorite 4 tips to pull off looking good inexpensively.
Pretty Little Thing– Hands down my favorite inexpensive place to shop right now, the quality you get for the price is awesome. I have an $8.00 dress that is a crowd pleaser every time I wear it. Down side is the shipping and returning. They are the absolute worst.
Fashion Nova–Is queen right now for getting inexpensive looks, rich people and influencers endorse heavily. Down side is you can run into someone with your outfit on and sometimes when you receive their item and it looks cheap in person.
Rainbow– Is the best place for cheap t-shirts (which I wear a lot), cute cheap sunglasses, cheap cute jewelry. I have an iridescent purse that cost me $12 that gets me stopped everywhere I go and that is not an exaggeration. Down side is you have to really take care of these items because they are cheap.
Shoedazzle- Too many of my shoes are from here and they are show stoppers. Return is easy and doesn’t cost you anything. Superb customer service.
