I have no shame in saying I was late to the fashion game – I think everyone can be forgiven for their take on ‘fashion’ in their teenage years as you are either influenced by your friends or whatever your parents can afford to get you. The later years, not so much though. I moved out when I was 18 years young however and then at age 19 decided to enrol myself in and support myself through a uni degree (which I successfully completed a year and a half ago). What that meant however was from when I was 19 to 22 the tiny amount of money I did have went on rent, uni books and 2 minute noodles – the very very last thing I would ever treat myself with was a new clothes purchase which was pretty much never. Today however is a different story – my degree is behind me and I’m on a comfortable salary with a penchant for finally filling my fashion desires. I still don’t know my style per se – all i know is that I dress in things I love, follow trends adapting what suits and leaving what doesn’t and never wear things unless I feel confident and comfortable in it. I still love a good bargain though and wanted to show how you still don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on your outfits. Every outfit below is created around my staple black $15 dollar skirt I picked up from Cotton On. 1 skirt, 4 different outfits is my idea of bargain heaven! The lessons I have learnt over the years are; have fun with your style, stay true to your style and whatever you wear make sure you feel confident – confidence can take any outfit from ok to fabulous.
