Stylish quote



“Buying a matching blouse and skirt from the same store is a crime. A clever mix of chic and cheap hits the jackpot. Know how to mix styles and labels.”

  1. great advice, i need more high end pieces though! :)

  2. Isnt a quote, is a rule of life! Lol, so agree with her, except when I enter in my fav stores (see Mango) where would love to go out with everything!:) Kisses dear, have a good day! xo

  3. This is a healthy style philosophy. I love that editorial photograph! I have it in my files and I'm waiting for the right moment to post it. :)

  4. I love Ines, but I have to admit that this is advice I never follow... I love to match, it's my secret fashion guilty pleasure :)

  5. HaHa! Knowing how to mix and match is key. I guess they would throw me in a fashion jail, because I buy and pair a lot from the same label. HAHAHA

  6. Ottimo pensieri!

  7. Great quote! I do always try to mix and match my outfits!

  9. This is the best idea behind finding ones own unique style. I follow this mantra all the time!

  10. Such a VERY good advice....!:)*

    Simply stunning words,I mean it...and can't more being agree!
    Making a good mix is also a very big talent!

    Wishing you wonderful September,Natalia:)*


  11. I'm a big fan of this approach and I think one of the best things about fashion and creating a style is the mixing. Of course, I have my favourite labels & designers (and yes, this season I would buy the entire Carven collection if I could!), but where is the fun in copying the same looks from catwalks/catalogues?!
