Know your basics | part III

I have nothing to wear.

All women say this at least once in their life. Excuse me, once a week. A day?

Ok. You get the point. We have a closet full of “stuff” and we mostly have no clue what to wear. I personaly have no such issue. Is it because I really do know what I own & where (exactly) to find it in my closet? Maybe. Or is it because I mix EVERY.LITTLE.THING. I have. Perhaps. I reinvent it all. All the time.

So what did I discover? Continue reading “From cAtwalk to cloZet: Black Cape”

Splurge vs Steal – Mara Hoffman Summer Dress

Just like any other fashionista, I ❤ a good deal! People think I spend a lot of money on fashion & beauty products but I disagree! Discount is key to me!
99% of my make-up stash & skincare are bought on sale. When it comes down to clothing, a Splurge vs Steal is a real challenge!

I found once again a really nice one! Continue reading “Splurge vs Steal – Mara Hoffman Summer Dress”

Splurge vs Steal – Black Handbag

Now & then we all fall victim to a expensive fashion piece. I haven’t yet but there are some pieces on my wish list… If you only knew!

Let start with some tips:

* What I always suggest you to do, before buying something you actually can’t afford, is to

There are always cheaper alternatives & maybe they even look better!
If you’re buying for the fancy name attached to the item, well…

* Or, if you really really really (we all know we actually don’t) don’t need it, is to

If your main reason to buy it, is because it is highly fashionable & it probably won’t be no longer next season, well…

* If you already have a similar piece in your wardrobe, even if this one looks so much better, is that much softer & has gorgeous details, the best you can do is to

Yes! It is that simple! You’re not weak are you? 😈

With all of this been said, on to the through meaning of this post.

I found a great splurge vs steal. Well, actually the splurge ain’t that huge compared to some other handbags but still, every penny
counts right? ^_^

Steal

Naf Naf – € 130

Both gorgeous bags. The SPLURGE looks very chic & luxurious & the STEAL looks different because of the suede accents. More casual because of the looser fit.

Which one do you prefer?
