self portrait dress look for less

Sponsored by Amazon Fashion and The Fix

I’m about to share a big secret with you guys… one of my favorite places to shop for clothes and accessories (especially shoes, including these!!) is Amazon and The Fix. I’ve snagged so many amazing deals from these Celine sunglasses that were sold out everywhere to dresses for $30. It’s THE BEST.

You guys know I love to mix high and low. I strongly believe in the “cost per wear” mentality when it comes to your closet – divide the cost of the item by the number of times you’ll wear it. I shared this in yesterday’s post too!

SO if you invest in a great designer handbag and you can wear it all seasons for years and years… that’s a splurge well worth the price. The pieces I tend to invest in are handbags, jewelry, classic outerwear and the occasional shoe.

I can be rough on my shoes though, so I try to be selective on where I spend those dollars. Luckily, I recently discovered Amazon’s The Fix and oh snap! So many good designer looks for less. I snagged these designer look alike cap toe mules for under $100. SERIOUSLY.

In this look, my sunglasses and handbag were a designer splurge and the dress (under $25) and heels are steals. I love that I don’t have to feel guilty if I only wear this memorable dress a few times. Cost per wear guys, get onboard!

What’s your shopping budget looking like? Are you a cost per wear person or do you prefer to splurge on other things? Would love to hear. And let me know if you would want to see more high/low posts like this!

Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. LOVE this look! You look so fab. If you don’t mind, what size did you order in the dress? I think we have the same body type. I’m always nervous ordering from somewhere like amazon for clothes, due to the sizing!

    1. This one is free shipping and return – so you shouldn’t be nervous! The reviews said the dress ran TTS and I would agree. I ordered a small and medium and kept the small.

  2. Love the dress! I clicked the link ok amazon and see four color options, but yours looks navy and white. Do you know if they still offer that color combination?

  3. I can’t believe this dress is only $25! I’ve ordered bikin’s and sunglasses from amazon but never clothing. I’m kinda scared to. I’m really small, like 5’1 and 95lbs. Do you think this dress would be small enough on my? I feel like if they had an extra small I might order it. But I guess it really doesn’t matter sonce it’s free returns. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I ordered two sizes and sent one back so I would recommend just trying and then sending back if it’s not a fit! You’re exactly right – free returns. Can’t beat that –
