On thursday I was very very very surprised when Dutch top-stylist Danie Bles chose me as best dressed Fashionista at the launch of her Winter 2011/2012 Styleguide. I won a €500 Fashioncheque! Wow?!
Honestly, I overslept that morning and I got ready in 10 minutes, throwing on one of my trusty Miss Patina dresses and going out the door with greasy hair and sloppy make-up. It's a huge ego-boost if a successful stylist like Danie picks you over lots and lots of other girls lovely-looking, especially when you're in such a state. She said my style was really 'me' and I mixed and matched highstreet, vintage and indie designer well.
Fashioncheque is a giftcard that you can spend at a select amount of stores in Holland. So I get to spend €500 at all kinds of expensive-type stores, which is really exciting, cause I thought: YOU GUYS, I'LL GET PROPER PRADA STUFF AND SUCH. But I must say: as a true budget-shopper, it even hurts to spend free money on expensive things. High-end designer fashion just pisses me off. Yesterday Tanya and I tried shopping at designer stores, we just came out going: €1200 FOR A BLOUSE? PEOPLE IN AFRICA ARE STARVING TO DEATH AND PEOPLE ARE SPENDING €1200 ON A BLOUSE?! It's outrageous.
We quickly decided designer wasn't the way forward, so now I bought a really beautiful €100 dress from Supertrash (which, turns out, is not trashy at all! Misleading advertising!). I'll show you the dress later. €400 more to go!
Did you guys have a nice weekend? Any Halloween-parties going on? Remember to enter my Romwe-giveaway in the previous post!
