You Don’t have to break the bank! Be Fly on a Budget!

You Don’t have to break the bank! Be Fly on a Budget!

Let’s be clear style is not by how much you spend. Style is in thrift stores, Good Will, department stores or just your online store brands. You don’t have to break the bank to show the confidence in yourself.

Earlier this week R&B singer Tamar Braxton took to Instagram to get a few things off her chest about her most recent encounter. And, shared how she had to fire her stylist shortly after he didn’t agree with her outfit choice for a show appearance. see post below.

The stylist today tried to make me feel “less than” because he didn’t agree that I should wear @forever21..well.. I FIRED him because NO ONE should make you feel “less than” because you have on a $40 outfit!! How AWFUL!! ?..so my clothes make me?!?.. NEVER!!!… Be confident in WHATEVER u have….Wear, are, and CHOOSE to be or afford!! You BETTER walk in confidence no matter what shape, size, or financial situation!! You are AMAZING and don’t let ANYONE bully you into spending what you have.. or NOT.. it doesn’t make you ANY LESS FABULOUS!! You make the clothes!! Your SPIRIT makes you!! EMBRACE YOU!! YOU ARE PERFECT!! NO MATTER WHAT!! #LOVEYOU thank you @fashionbombdaily for posting AND knowing that’s it’s about THE GIRL!! #bluebirdofhappiness??– Tamar Braxton(@tamarbraxton)

The price of a garment does not determine how fashionable a garment is!

But, like Forever 21, there are so many clothing brands that provide a great quality of clothing-whether replica or original.  Stores such as H&M, Marshalls, TjMax, Ross, Burlington, Top Shop and many more are known affordable brands. But, in today’s society private boutique and online brands provide high fashion inspirational garments that are inexpensive. Privately owned brands such as Kloset Envy, Fashion Nova and Disclothesure provide stylish looks for less.

Style is HOW you wear it not HOW much it cost!

So, rock what yo want when you want and where you want with no regrets. And, don’t forget to select the links to shop brands mentioned above.
