Cheap Sophistication

by Michelle Lella


As most of you know, I am ballin on a budget most days.  I have a few prized pieces from Tory Burch or Michael Kors, but I cannot afford to spend that much on all my clothing items.  I find a lot of my dresses from Forever21 and other stores in that price range.  I just want to show you all that you can  look fashionable and professional but you don't have to break the bank!  Unless you want to, then more power to you!  I also get a lot of my higher end brands from thrift and consignment stores.  Thrift shopping takes a truly patient person but in the end the benefits are worth it!  Here's an outfit I wore to the Kendra Scott Summer Launch Party at the Scottsdale Quarter.
