Affordable Fashion for “Real” Women

Doesn’t this dress just look so fresh and comfy? I love it… although it’s not from my closet. It’s my daughter’s, but this dress is exactly my style. I think it’s a great summer dress – so comfy with some visual interest. This is the dress I’d bring if I was going on a tropical vacation. And lots of colorful bathing suits. One can dream, right?!

Most days I’m in old shorts and tops, but once in a while it’s fun to wear something cute and feminine.bohoSometimes I take a peek at popular fashion blogs and I’m amazed how much these women spend on clothes. Can “real” people really afford a top for $695 or a pair of flats for $999? One blogger wore a $165 head band. Wow! And what’s with all those overpriced purses? You could buy a used car with that money. Oh well, maybe I don’t understand fashion. I feel so out-of-place just reading their posts. It think my daughter spent  $20 on this dress and I love it.

I’m curious, how do you feel about fashion bloggers who wear super expensive items in every post? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
