High-Low Fashion -- Even Celebs Love It

June 26, 2007 by SheFindsTara

You may remember a recent post from Second City Style about high-low wardrobing — not a new trend, but a fashion concept well worth trying. It’s the idea that you can wear a cheap dress from H&M with expensive accessories (or vice versa), and still look like a million bucks.

The Budget Fashionista recently pointed out that mega-millionaire, Angelina Jolie, showed up at the premiere of A Mighty Heart wearing a $26 vintage dress and a $550 pair of Louboutins. Well played, Jolie! My cousin just pulled the same stunt a week or so ago at a wedding. She nabbed a $250 dress for $15 at Goodwill, threw on fancy jewelry and designer shoes, and wound up looking fabulous!

Depending where you live, quality vintage stores may be rare. Luckily, there are online locales for scoring retro duds on a pauper’s budget. Granted: take each find with a grain of salt. You never know if that “Chanel dress” is really authentic and it may take some virtual digging to come up with a really great steal. Also remember that anything that pre-dates 1980 may run smaller than you think.

Shops we recommend:

* Goodwill’s Online Auction

* Rodeo Drive Resale

* Fashion Dig

* Kitty Girl Vintage

* Adore Vintage
