Staying Chic in Affordable Fashion











I wore this outfit for a celebratory dinner on my birthday. We went to a local pub, nothing fancy, but they have the best menu selection and the best food. Actually the best is probably an understatement because it's one of my favourite places to eat. If you're ever in the Abbotsford area you definitely need to check out Lou's Grill. They have a menu as diverse as The Cheesecake Factory (if you've ever been to The Cheesecake Factory you would know they have everything on their menu) and the quality of food is 5-star!

I wanted to wear something cute and fun without being too formal. I thought this ruffled off-shoulder top from RoseGal paired with this fitted mini accomplished that. Did I mention that this top is under $15? Can you talk about affordable fashion or what? I also see myself wearing this top with a pair of high-waist jeans or shorts or even with a bohemian-inspired maxi skirt. I plan to get a lot of use out of this top this summer.

What is your go-to outfit when you want to dress up without going over-the-top?

O U T F I T  D E T A I L S:
1. Top: c/o RoseGal
2. Skirt: Missguided
3. Clutch: Ever New similar
4. Necklace: c/o Courtney Boutique
5. Sandals: c/o Geox

  19. If I don't want to get too dressy, I like to do a dress with a pair of sneaks. I think it brings the outfit down to earth. :)

  33. I love the idea of incorporating affordable outfits/items in your OTS, as not alĺ can afford everything they see. I believe, to be fashionable shouldn't break your bank account rather a combination of taste and confidence. Great job Rina!

    1. Thanks Ayeen! I totally agree with you! You can't always afford to fork out money on clothes and when you do they don't need to be overly costly. But if you decide to spend a little more on something it should last you for many years so you can get your money's worth out of it =)

  35. Wow you look beautiful Rina, and the off-the-shoulder blouse suits you perfectly. It's very elegant, without being overstated, and I love the way you styled the whole look. The shoes are fabulous! I hope you had fun on your birthday dinner.

    When I want to look stylish and polished, without looking like a fashion victim, I love to wear a blazer and jeans, with a pretty top.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
