Lookbook: Recessionista Chic

The wonderful Doll’s Factory recently asked me to participate in her Recessionista Chic posts. The only rule of the post is that the entire outfit must not exceed $70 since "In time of crisis fashion bloggers show that you can have style at any price".

Usually I prefer to buy things on sale unless I know my size will run out. It’s awful when you buy something at full price then seeing it for cheaper later. Kind of like how I bought my Rock & Republic jeans a few months ago and this weekend I saw that Costco is selling R&R for only $98/pair! Granted, it wasn’t the same cut, but still the same brand. Good thing they only had women sizes 26-32 and I’m a 24… or else I would have looked like this and then sh*t a brick on the spot. Really, I would have!

Romper: Aerie by American Eagle, orig $29.50, sale $14
Tank: TNA, orig $30, sale $15
Gladiator Sandals: Bluenotes, orig $20, sale $10
Sunglasses: Boutique in Byward Market, $10
Cuff, Feather Headband and Necklace: Handmade by moi, $0
Total: $49
