Budgeting a Chanel!

Hello everyone!

In the month of February, I got a chance to attend Fastrack store opening in CMH Road, Indiranagar. I felt like a kid in candy store when I entered the store! The store is like a sugar bowl of creativity, overflowing with ingenious decor ideas and original theme. The store has commodes, cages, skeleton hands, a fridge and a tortured mannequin to display belts. A one of a kind store with edgy outlook. Check out the store photos and budgeting a Chanel look (that's right look for less is back :D).






I am wearing..
Dress - Forever 21 (Cotton black dress, paid 15$ in Forever 21 clearance sale. Original cost 30$)
Jacket - Mango (Got it during recent sale for Rs.1800. Original cost Rs.2800. Buy here )
Heels - ZARA (Got it during end of season sale for Rs.1900. Original cost Rs.4300. Buy here)
Bracelets - Stilettos Diary shop (Last seen here)
ALDO Rose Gold Watch - courtesy Majorbrands.in (Buy here)



It's been almost a year since I did celebrity LOOK FOR LESS (last look - ALL OVER LACE, read HERE). This time I chose to get this total Chanel look worn by Chiara Ferragni of TheBlondeSalad fame. I really don't know how much her entire look costs because she is wearing everything from Chanel. My entire look, costs less than 1/10th of the total cost of the bag alone!

I decided to add my own twist to the outfit, I paired the forever 21 cotton dress with Jacquard tweed coat. I had seen this coat way back when I was helping my friend shop. It was way out of my budget then. During last league of Mango end of season sale, I managed to score it for Rs.1800. I like the gold chain detailing, I did see a beige jacket, but din't fit me so I opted for the green one instead. The beige jacket looked quite similar to the one Chiara is wearing. I decided to wear cut out wedge heels rather than boots. I was destined to own these wedge heels from ZARA India. Last pair left in my size at 60% off (How can I even resist that?). Few gold bracelets, ALDO rose gold watch and nude makeup completed the look.

What do you think of this edition of LOOK FOR LESS? Do let me. I will be regularly blogging from hence forth. A little birdie told me not to let my health conditions define terms. So the complete story of my illness is I suffer from chronic migraine headaches that lasts months together. Last seven months the pain was unbearable. After few epic goofs up, weight gain and severe side-effects I stopped all medicines. After a very unsuccessful treatment with "English medicines" (My mom calls all medicines prescribed by doctors as "English medicines") now I am taking Homeopathy treatment for chronic migraine. So far, I like the results, I am back on track to losing weight (These photos were shot in Feb. I have managed to put down 3 kgs, check out the post I shot last week HERE). Hopefully this time the treatment will be successful. Keeping my fingers crossed.
