Kamea and Chihuahua

Today I am wearing a dress I thrifted for a few euros from a local store and I am lucky enough to have some time for a few shots.
I remember surfing the fashion blogs some years ago and seeing so many expensive brands and not daring to dream about my own blog.
A beautiful style does not mean expensive clothes. You can dress well, you can be beautiful, fashionable, even if you make your own clothes or buy them at second hand shops.
So, my dear, if today you find yourself with a low self esteem, I write for you to know that you can do it, too.
I am known among my friends as a bargains hunter ... maybe it's a talent I have developed over time.
If I have a budget for shopping, I prefer the sales period,
Many times I have been lucky to find that and the last available pair of  some shoes I loved was my size and reduced with 70%. I  would give up any day any Mall in Dubai for a bazaar in Morocco.
I have no problem to look for a vintage item in a charity shop. It's a whole adventure and you'll be amazed what you can find there.
I'm exchanging clothes with my girlfriend whenever we get bored of something and I'm receiving donations also (hahaha!)...
Cheers to Alexia, as she added a few pounds and she had to donate me a bag full of goodies!
Aaah, and sometimes I steal from my sister <3.

Preppy match

This look is very much like what I wear every day to work. Minus the skirt lenght. The preppy style has made ​​its mark on the way I dress, maybe since the time of my first job. From Ivy League school campuses, this style has come to be reflected in the wardrobes of  professional women and in several of the major desingners' collections. Classical ensembles, often worn by women entrepreneurs on the East Coast and not only, include tailored skirt suits,low heels,wrap dresses,silk or cotton blouses and exquisite jewelry. Such clothing often includes elements drawn from typical preppy style like nautical stripes, pastel or equestrian details. Baseline examples of the preppy style include Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Guinness, Babe Paley, Slim Keith or CZ Guest- all women whose style is often referred by designers.
