Quality Shopping at a Bargain!

There's nothing better than buying that perfect, must-have item! However, it feels even better to get something you love for a half the original cost. I never believe in sacrificing quality for a cheaper version of something. I want what I want! In honor of a great buy, today I am sharing 3 random items I cam across that (made by high-end designers) that are up available for a steal. Before I proceed, just a reminder, that shopping for quality at a bargain means different things for everyone. Whether shopping at a local second-hand store, waiting for the right sale or shopping around for the right price  at a department store or boutique, it's all really a bargain. Essentially, It's about shopping smart. Here 3 examples of some everyday fashion items that demonstrate you don't have to spend a ton to get what you want:

Black Panther Red Carpet

The Black Panther premiere was grander and more unique than any other red carpet or premiere I have seen. I really loved the bright colors and royal-like attire.  Prints were also very major on the carpet and very beautiful. Although there were so many lovable looks, here are my top picks from the carpet:

My Top 2018 Golden Globe Picks

Black was not only the trend but it was an important movement for tonight's Golden Globes. In  soladity of those affected about sexual misconduct, guests to the big event wore black to show their support. I absolutely love the message and find the color perfect for the red carpet. With that being said, tonight really showcased who really knows their fashion. 

There were so many disappointments, as some hid behind the color black instead of shining. Many just didn't rise to the occasion.  A lot of the looks were too safe and boring. As a result, the men really showed up many of the starlets. But there were some celebrities who really did werk it, shining brightly. Issa Rae completely got it right. Rae was fierce, classy and stunning in  a black Prabal Gurung gown. The slit and simple black scrappy shoes were sexy and precise. The green-dropped necklace added the perfect touch of color and glam. She was my number 1 pick tonight for all of these reasons. Check out the rest of my favorites below:
