Cheap and classy

How many times do you hear people say ‘you get what you pay for’. Personally, I hate this saying and couldn’t disagree more. I love designer brands and often splurge on cute Tony Bianco shoes and Jimmy Choo bags, but in no way does this mean I am going to get an infallable product. I have paid $300 for a Guess bag only for it to break and $20 on a Big W bag for it to last years. Yes, in some ways more expensive things are better quality and in other ways cheap items will fall apart. But you can’t base your entire closet and life around the rule that cheap is nasty and expensive means better quality. In fact I own some cute brown heels that are super cute and go perfectly with almost anything. “How much were they? Where did you get them? I love them. I want a pair”. These are some of the comments I have been receiving since wearing them out and about. The answer is, I got them on sale two years ago for $2 from Kmart. Yes, that’s rare but it proves a point, cheap is not always nasty, in fact it can be classy.
