Today I am wearing a multi-plaid patchwork wool vest and vintage black trousers I found for $10. I'm really a big fan of vintage clothing as you can see. I may work for Barneys but I'm not one of their big clients. I truly believe that you can give the look for less. However I do love couture and designer clothing but I live on a budget, and I have learned how to have GREAT STYLE. To me real fashionistas/fashionistos shops everywhere. I even shop and re-shop my own closet, putting things together that I've never worn together before. Now don't get me wrong I do shop at Barneys but not for everything. One day I may be wearing Prada shoes, a kiton tie and a vintage suit I found that cost $7.....and it's okay to do so. Mix it! It keeps it interesting and fun. Think out of the box when it comes to fashion. It's time to stop being a follower and be a fashion leader. Most style makers have a "do what you feel attitude" when it comes to fashion. Remember fashion is an emotion not a thought in your head. So stop thinking so much and do what you feel.
