Belles, we live by the quote ‘quality over quantity.
So naturally, we tend to buy products that will last us longer, even though they cost more. We wanted to emphasize the importance of spending our money wisely on quality clothes and garments for this issue. Even though we LOVE a Chanel bag or a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes, our bank accounts don’t like us always spending so much money on luxury items!
We compiled a list of some of our fav brands that provide luxury but don’t break the bank.
Which one is your favorite?
