Never Jaded is finally back up and running. I had the worst experience with renewing my domain with Google. A part of it was my fault, (lesson: renew before the expire date - yes they give you a grace window, but it's just more complicated) but at the same time the Google Help Center is useless if your question isn't a "Frequently Asked Question," and the help number rings once and says use the online 24/7 service. -__-
But anywho, thanks for checking in on everything for those that did. I appreciate you. Now on to the topic at hand...
It's not about what you wear, but how you wear it.
I find that a lot of people from school ask where I shop, because there's not many options in our small town. And people assume that the way I dress I spend a lot of money on clothes, but let me tell you now I am a college student on a budget.
Raised in a single-parent home, I learned the value of money early and stretching a dollar is my specialty. Designers and labels aren't my cup of tea - I really can only tell you like five designers- and when it comes to clothes and shoes, I'm not afraid of the sales rack.
At this point the only thing I spend a lot of money on is electronics (Macbook Pro, Beats By Dre, iPhone) - those are investments. Oh, and weave. Lol But when you invest in quality, virgin hair and your set for 6 months to a year, it's worth it, so hey, don't judge.
Back to clothes: while I know all girls love their red bottoms, with MK watches, and LV handbags, I'm not apart of that group, no shade to those who do, because those products are great, it's just not for me right now, and I won't pretend like it is.
In my town there's few options to shop and our mall is .... eh, it could be worse, so I won't complain. But the thing I find is that females act like they're too good to shop in stores like Forever 21, Rue 21, Wet Seal, Target, ect, but when that's all you have you make it work. Yes their items can look cheap, but ya'll be over-exaggerating that there is nothing in their stores, and just don't look. Same with thrifting which I love. Goodwill, and little cute second hand shops downtown will become your best friend.
With a little patience searching the racks, and confidence in what you're wearing you're a twirl away from Cinderella's pink rags turning into a beautiful gown.
Continue for an example of what I wore last night. ;)
For example, this is what I wore last night. I'm not becoming a fashion blog, just showing you how easy it is to be fly, and fashionable on a budget. And yes the caption says there's a dress, and a skirt. This is just one way to avoid having that one-time dress hanging in your closet to never wear again. Wear it again as a top and no one even noticed. ^_^ Remember it's not about what you wear, but how you wear it.
