I have spent bulk of my teen years and young adult life, working in retail (clothing, salons, food). The years I spent in the fashion industry grew and ignited my love for fashion. As well as, my love for unique items. Unfortunately, when you work in these retail stores you tend to look like a walking billboard for them (not that there’s anything wrong with that, since I still shop at those kind of stores). How did I get around this though? One: I wore heels to work a lot… something you definitely don’t see in ‘teen’ retail stores, and two: I made my own jewelry by breaking new items apart and combining them to create unique pieces.
So in a nutshell… I don’t live in L.A. or NYC, but I dress like I do.
Welcome to the CMK lifestyle … the Ohio version.
There are so many websites that show you how to look cute, but do they tell you where they got their items from? And do they follow my mantra for shopping? NO! They don’t! I RARELY spend more than $14 for any item in my closet (including shoes)! Find out how with me!
My shopping ‘rules’ and guidelines:
- You should only buy things you LOVE!
- Clothing, Accessories, and Purses should equal $1 for every day you will wear them.
- Shoes are worth more $$. Comfort should never be sacrificed.
- You should never have more purses than days of the week.
- Shop on days when you feel the least sexy. YES, I said LEAST!
