Coco Chanel without breaking the bank !

You know why i don't buy expensive clothes ?   
Because i have a 3 year old who likes to go in my closet and when i ask her : "Where are my sun glasses?" 
She responds: "I don't know, i lost it." Or " I broke it, Mommy sorry."
Sometimes even things get cut with scissors.
Decorated with pen. Fingers wiped on.
Well, i can say it is ok. 
You have no idea how i have loved shopping at Kmart, thanks to Chictopia and Kmart.
How do you like my "Chanel inspired" outfit from Kmart ? No Kidding !
Want the jacket ?
Linking to parties on my side bar.
It is just a taste of it. I am working on cool pictures.

The other 2 winners on Chictopia have their own very unique style !
Check them out !
Barkat Barbro from Norway.
Jenny from the block from L.A California.
I have a party coming soon !

I love the way you put together this Chanel look!!
just want to add that I believe that you don't need to buy expensive clothes to show your style it's a question of fashion sense, if you have it that's all you need..
Have a good day xox

I love Coco chanel! The history about her life,her inspirations, and her Fashion which made so many womens in the world adopt her style. I agree with Steffie that you don't need to buy expensive and brand clothes to be in fashion.The ideas to put together outfits is all over magazines and internet.So it's a just a matter of use your sense of style! beijos

I also love the idea of not spending too much on clothes since all we have to do is rock it with awesome pieces. :)

Great outfit...I love to see women use good sense in spending money on cloths. As I grew up, we were poor farmers and my mom shopped at the DI..everyone always wanted to know where she got her classy cloths! She just knew how to make something look classy because she was classy! ;D
