Going into Fashion Week, one of the most stressful parts & biggest questions for me was packing and figuring out “What in the world am I going to wear?!” During Fashion Week attendees pull out their wildest, most over-the-top, fabulous pieces in their closet- and frankly that can be intimidating! While I’ve never been a girl who shies away from color or print, my style is certainly not “wild” and definitely veers towards preppy & classic looks (with a twist to keep it interesting!)

In addition, I’ve been attending Financial Peace University (more on that coming soon!) and I knew that I didn’t want to break the bank on wild pieces I would only wear once. I definitely wanted to make sure that anything I was purchasing for the trip was either an amazing deal or had “life” beyond the days at Fashion Week. So the question for me became… “how can I look like a million bucks without spending it?!”

The answer might surprise you…

AMAZON!

Yep, y’all! As with pretty much everything else in life- Amazon is the answer! ha.

One of the ways I prepped for the trip was searching for inspiration and outfits on Pinterest & googling NYFW- then I made a list of the kinds of outfits I wanted to wear for each event/part of the trip. I then reviewed the list to see what I was missing or needed to complete a look, and then I visited my trusty friend Amazon! Case in point, this sequin jacket! I knew I wanted to make a statement with a sequin bomber jacket and when I searched Amazon I came across this beauty for $35.99! Much more reasonable than the $100+ price tags I was seeing at other retailers! The trick with searching fashion on the site it being specific about your keywords and making sure you narrow down your sizes, prime eligibility, and price range. They you will easily be able to grab whatever it is you’re looking for!

So what do you think? Do you shop Amazon for jaw dropping fashion? Or basic household accessories? Sound off in the comments below!
