Graffiti & Lace

I love finding luxury looking items in unexpected places. Several years ago (honestly probably more like a decade) while shopping with my sister at an outlet mall I found this high collar lace front top at Rue21. I think it was the first, and quite possibly only time I've shopped there, but I'm so glad I did. It quickly became (and still is to this day) one of my favorite pieces. I love how it elevates anything I pair it with. 

You may not know immediately an item is something you'll cherish for years to come but, you can start buying smarter. A good rule of thumb is to buy items in neutrals. Not only will they match a lot, they'll also be less likely to go out of style. Personally, I consider stripes (in neutral tones & navy), animal prints, denim, skin tones, as well as the obvious black, white, gray, and brown as neutrals. Also look for items with a special detail. Like for instance my cream colored lace front top. I loved the high neck and V shaped ruffles. It completely stood out amongst several cotton tank-tops and t-shirts in the store. Lastly, just because a store is geared towards a younger audience and/or the prices are inexpensive doesn't mean you can't find a gem in there.
