I’m a teenager.
I’m a teenager with a low income.
I’m a teenager with a low income that likes to shop.
Catching on? I’m not a millionaire, and I do have to buy (most) of my clothes. I guess you could say I’m spoiled that way ;)
But, I have learned one super-duper important thing by having the responsibility to buy my own clothes, and that is: bargain shopping. Browsing through Pinterest I’ve realized that it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it. If you’re confident in your Forever 21 dress that cost $15 then you will outshine what you’re wearing.
That being said, my top is from the Joe Fresh line at JC Penny’s and it only cost $19, my pants are from Forever 21 and only cost $15, and my clutch was from Gap and cost $30. My shoes are Cordani from the Zappos Outlet, they orginally cost three hundred something dollars, but I bought them for less than $100.
I feel like this outfit looks like it would be a lot more expensive than it actually is, and I feel that way because I’m in love with the look. I feel good in this outfit.
Simply put, I feel confident.
How about you, do you enjoy bargain shopping? And what outfits make you feel good?
