Next to nothing

V-neck mesh top c/o New Dress / Black asymmetric skirt c/o Lovely Wholesale / Envelope clutch from Groupon

I'm really indecisive when it comes to trends. I'm trying to invest in more classic pieces, but even "classic" can get pretty subjective. Get a good pair of jeans? Well skinnies are out and mom jeans are back in. Invest in a cozy cardigan? Nothing is fitted anymore these days. The oversized look has gotta go out of style sometime, right? 

Which is why I like buying into fun trends every now and then on sites like New Dress. They have a really nice variety of products from funky purses to vintage dresses at a ridiculously low price. With low prices, you do always have to proceed with caution because it can mean that the quality isn't that great. But the quality here really isn't any worse than something you'd find at a typical mall. The best part is that every week, they have a set of items off their normal collection that sells for $0.01! Yes, that's right. What can you get for a penny these days? Well now, you can get a shirt like this. Okay, so it's a bit wrinkly when it arrives in the mail, but that's mostly my fault for not bothering to iron it.

In other news, I use this envelope clutch quite often now, but I'm a little bitter about it. I got it off Groupon for $10, which is a great deal. Except that I found this exact envelope clutch on New Dress with a wholesale price at $1.50. So some seller really cashed out by jacking up the price to offer it on Groupon. Moral of the story: Don't be afraid of $3 items. You're probably buying them anyway, but without getting the amazing savings.

  9. I totally agree with you when it comes to classics - it can be confusing! And sometimes what we think is trendy now may be considered a classic years to come - look how long of a run skinny jeans had!
    Love this outfit - that skirt is so cute!

  11. First, I love this look! Everything about it. Such a crisp, clean and chic look. As for the price for clothing, I couldn't agree more! I've worked in retail and have had friends who have also and items that were sold for over $100 eventually went on clearance for as little as $2! One could ask how can the retailer still make a profit at such a high price slash, well, like you said, they may cost a lot less to begin with but the prices are hiked to make a profit.

    Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed this post :)

  13. Black and white is always a classic outfit combination! Shame you saw your clutch cheaper elsewhere, but at least you know to look at that site first now before buying elsewhere, haha! :)

  22. can't agree more. i like to think i invest in classic, timeless pieces too but can never really define classic nowadays as there's so many twists to the "classic" pieces that makes them so trendy.

    but anyway you look amazing, i always love a black and white combo. you can never go wrong.
