budget balance.

don’t dress yourself with pricetags, its okay to mix and match. investment pieces with economically responsible tweaks & details. it’s about finding the right balance. we’d all love to have closets full of quality and shoeboxes full of cash but we’re  i’m not there (yet). building a wardrobe is about spending smart and having realistic expectations for our clothes.

play to your strengths, pay attention to sales but realize quality when you see it.  try to stay balanced.
