I don’t consider myself to be extremely fashionable. I don’t scour the runways for inspo, keep up with magazines, or stan designers. I don’t meticulously put together outfits every morning. Instead, my fashion motto lately has been “beauty from within” or “try to look effortless.” This week, I’ll be sharing a few easy tricks on how to look and feel put together.
How many of you have turned the heat on? One morning my family woke up and it was 17 degrees in the house. We thought we could just bundle up for now…but we caved.

I realized that in almost every one of my posts, I’ve talked about looking stylish without spending a lot of money. I’ve mentioned certain garments and where I got them, but never actually shared where I love to shop.

Through my years of shopping in Toronto, here are my top places to go to for looking bougie on a budget.
There’s a saying at Ryerson about how you can always tell us fashion students apart from the general crowd. I guess you can call it the fashion vibe. You know when you see someone on the street and think “wow, they look good” even though they’re in jeans and a t-shirt? We’d get complimented on our everyday outfits and whenever we say, “thank you, I study fashion,” the response would be “I had a feeling you do!” So this week, I’m betraying my creed by giving away all of our secrets. Just kidding! But I will share with you my tips on how to look effortlessly put together.
Coming from an immigrant family, I grew up very frugal. It wasn’t until middle school when my family started shopping for clothes in actual stores, and even then, we’d only go to cheaper places like Winner’s and Urban Planet (they were pretty ghetto back in the day).

Here are some Holy Grail tips passed from one fashionista to another on how to look fabulous for cheap.
