I love the fashion blogs. However they do not love my money-clip ($3 at the thrift store, btw). I visit sites like "lookbook.nu" & see that I can have that same clothes with a fraction of the cost. This isn't for everyone, as I've seen people attempt and tragically fail in the process.
This process I speak of, is going to a thrift store and finding beauty in an old pair of overalls or the JAZZ that could come from a weirdly designed 90's button up.
