A Cozy Cape

IMG_0007If any of you were to know me on a personal level, you would know I am an extremist. In the way I dress, my personality and the way I just in general live. So, for an extremist like myself, middle ground and limbo is the most stressful state of existence. That is my life for the next couple weeks. I will be living in my old stomping grounds of Minneapolis while our apartment is “getting ready for us” in Seattle (whatever that phrase means Mr. leasing man). But what makes it all a bit better is having a Celine having from your arm. I mean, that’s ok with me. I pride myself on sporting a high-low mix of designers in all my looks. For example, I’m wearing a $52 She Inside Cape with a $$$ Celine bag. I know where to splurge and where to save. I love designer pieces, but at 21, typically can’t afford to wear them head-to-toe. Most my designer items are bags and shoes, because I’m an accessory girl. But also, many of my designer pieces are vintage and/or preowned to save a lot of money. That’s why I love Trendlee. It’s all the benefits of pre-owned (namely the price) with the confidence of authenticity (which you may not have shopping at a source like Ebay.

Exclusively for Chic Street Style followers, you can get 5% off Trendlee’s amazing seletion of bags off (their already great prices) with code ‘CHICSTREET.” IMG_0034 IMG_0045IMG_0013 IMG_0027 IMG_0040 IMG_0018
