Wearing | sunglasses c/o 80's Purple • jacket from Nasty Gal • Forever 21 shirt + bag • skirt c/o Motel Rocks
Like most college students, I can't afford a true "designer look." But you know... I've always felt it was better to be cheap than to have the means to easily attain everything. You learn to use your money more wisely, it pushes you to be more creative and resourceful, and you find ways to recycle/refresh what you already have. You can buy fashion, but you can't buy style! With that said, here's my personal runway-inspired version of *this* look from the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013 show. I'm wearing nothing but completely affordable fast-fashion pieces: an amazingly similar moto jacket currently on sale at Nasty Gal, Forever 21 eyelet shirt, salt and pepper tweed skirt by Motel that just keeps making a cameo on my blog, and classic Aldo patent leather oxfords—most of these items are staples which have long existed in my closet—and there you have it! Fashion from the catwalk to the sidewalk... or in this case, an alleyway where we met this hobo.
