Are you someone who enjoys shopping but feels incredibly guilty after spending frivolously on expensive items? Well, don’t worry, I definitely been there. I’ve learned to pump the breaks on my debit card and started shopping smarter. The key is to practice bargain shopping. You can save a pretty penny by joining the mailing list of your favorite shopping stores to be the first to know of any promotions or store Discounts. Also it helps to plan well in advance for an upcoming engagement to avoid buying items at the very last minute at full price. Here’s a prime example how shopping smarter lands you the perfect look all for under $100.
Zara is one of my go-to stores so I was thrilled when I came across this beautiful high neck long sleeve dress ! Yes, I purchased this beauty for only $25 during Zara’s blow out sale earlier this year. It’s super chic, super feminine, and lightweight which blowed beautifully with the warm summer breeze. I did indeed tweak the dress a tad by creating a high slit allowing a little leg action. This gave off a fun a flirty vibe.
I wanted the dress to be the focus, so pairing It was a simple black heeled sandal was the way to go! The price was also super affordable; only $40!! A steal I know!!!!
To complete the look, I wore a vintage inspired beaded bag also from Zara for $29.00.I think it’s the most affordable way to tap into the beaded trend! I love the boxy silhouette and the gracefully curvy round top handles! It’s definitely a bag that you’ll be able do take from Day to night.
I hope you love this look as much I do. Remember you can achieve a gorgeous look without breaking the bank. Shop smarter not harder! Xo
