Fall in Philly






( Blazer - Forever21, Cropped Sweater - H&M, Bag - Kimchi & Blue, Boots - Cooperative, Scarf - Burberry Knockoff!)

I miss my bangs! Sorry...this is the new do' guys, bangs are hard to maintain! But anyway, this is fall in Philly! One of the parks where Irene and I love to shoot. I did a lot of layering in this outfit. Everything I got was on sale and no more than $30 on each item. The bag was a birthday gift from my mom which I absolutely adore now because it's a messenger bag and a clutch and purse all in one. Urban Outfitters has really great deals on bags if you dig though the clearance, which is also where I found my booties for only $20 originally $69! The scarf my favorite accessory here is a Burberry Knockoff I think from DSW and it's my moms....good eye mom. The print fooled me and a few high-end fashionistas and I would die a thousand deaths before I pay hundred of dollars for the real thing if a replica is available. 

I encourage anyone to bargain hunt and always check the clearance racks! I do real looks for real women, and sorry uptight fashion bloggers but I don't see the point of some your blogs meant to share looks and insights when you feature $1000 shoes....not practical and definitely not made for the everyday girl you claim to be. Hi-lo fashion is the key.

    I always try to hunt for bargains too. I actually happened to find a $125 skirt for $40 just a while ago. :)

  28. Great outfit! agree that bangs are hard to maintain.

  29. Agreed - some bloggers must have such disposable incomes to spend on all that stuff! (S & I prefer to DIY a lot - much more affordable!)
