Style is all about being your own self, no? Sure, we love that handbag in our closet we saved and saved for (duh), but what about the outfit we paid little to nothing for and still get compliments on every, single time we wear it? So proud. I personally love the thrill of putting together an outfit, and especially the fun that comes with putting together something chic on a budget. Sure, it’s easy when you have unlimited resources, but when you don’t is when true creativity comes into play. And it’s often this is when the coolest outfits are created.
Kmart has really burst back onto the style scene lately with a much trendier variety of clothing and accessories (I’ve even noticed their ads…and wondered, what’s this all about!?). I mean, just look at the heels and faux fur from the fall “collection” below. You would never know these weren’t high-dollar items by just looking at them. And it doesn’t matter because they’re still cute, on trend and so very stylish. Have to say I’m impressed.
It boils down to the fact that dropping a ton of cash on a trend isn’t an automatic to cool. Style is a cocktail. Part confidence. Part creativity. Part risk. When you got it, you got it. And that’s why others want it. Because money can’t buy style.
