One of my favorite things in the world is to find clothing and/or accessories that look expensive, but aren’t.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’ll splurge on a Chloe purse if I must.  But if I can save money without looking like I am – i’m okay with that too.

Take, for example, this blazer.  Looks expensive, right? Wrong! It was under $100 from Windsor Store.  I love all of the gold accents and subtle details it has.  It is definitely one of my go-to pieces.

And you really aren’t going to believe it when I tell you how much these ripped black skinny jeans are . . . No, these aren’t the J Brand Skinny Ripped Jeans I’ve been eyeing.. but they look just like them and are only $7.90 from Forever 21. Yes, that is written correctly.  And yes, that is less money than one order from Starbucks.  The jeans don’t come with rips in them, so I added them myself!

The shirt is designed by my good friend and Denver’s local fashion maven, Stephanie O.  This classic white top is such a staple in my wardrobe and is so flattering!  (If you aren’t from Denver, you may recognize Stephanie from the the latest season of Project Runway: Under the Gunn).

Thank you so much for reading.

Happy Monday!
