Cheap and Chic

Affordable fashion is everything that this blog stands for! Being chic and wearing the latest styles and trends doesn’t necessarily mean you have to max out your credit card.

Affordable retailers are getting increasingly popular around the world, and more and more designers are realizing their market appeal and collaborate with these retailers on ready to wear collections: Alber Elbaz and Donatella Versace for H&M, Jason Wu for Target, Mary Katrantzou for Topshop, etc.

Even red carpet fashion is changing in this direction and more and more celebrities dare to wear affordable dresses to big Hollywood events. Nicole Richie, for example, wore a gorgeous Topshop dress to the 2013 MET Gala.

We love browsing through thrift shops and flea markets for bargains, Sometimes the least expensive pieces are also the most unique ones.
