I’m pretty sure that a love of personal style almost always goes hand-in-hand with a serious love of shopping…and in that, I’m certainly not an exception!!
There isn’t much that makes me happier than the prospect of an afternoon spent browsing from store to store with a Starbucks chai latte in my hand; the thrill of the fashion hunt is undeniable!! But all that shopping also has the potential to become a rather expensive hobby…especially since I’m not exactly “made of money,” as the saying goes!! So how do I indulge without blowing my budget??
First of all, going shopping doesn’t always mean that something new actually ends up coming home with me. And when it does, it’s rarely a full-priced purchase (that’s one of the reasons that I love Winners so much!!)
Like my studded leopard backpack, for example!! I’d been thinking about trying this particular trend for a while now; but I wasn’t prepared to spend a lot of money for a high-end leather version. So I waited and scouted and waited some more…until I found the perfect substitute!! For only $40!!
P.S. I’m celebrating my Blogiversary today, dear readers!! It was exactly one year ago that I published my very first blog post, and I wanted to thank you all so much for your support!!
