Luxe Inspiration, Cheap & Chic Substitutes

Although we are goddesses on budgets, that doesn’t mean we can’t be inspired by runways, designer labels and luxurious things. It’s all about how you translate what you see into your daily life!

In this weekly feature, I’ll take inspiring images and pair them with beauty and/or fashion finds that can help you channel them into your daily life easily, without breaking the bank!

  1. Multipack of Bracelets from Topshop really bring it together. Accessories can really do wonders for a look (all with moderation of course)

  2. It would be cool to see your opinions on current fashion trends and kind of create a possible controversy. How can we incorporate them into our daily lives?
