Last week Drew Barrymore hosted a Nylon/Express event sporting the classic high-low fashion mix: a thrifted dress (purchased for $25 at a store in Austin, Texas) and designer shoes ($760 Yves Saint Laurent Tributes). Kudos to Drew for successfully pulling off this careful balance. Didn’t she look marvelous?
Combining high and low fashion is an increasingly cool concept. In fact, these days it can be considered unhip to dress in head-to-toe designer. This is good news for me, being somebody who has owned perhaps only a single designer item: a pair of Chanel sunglasses. I do believe in a designer splurge as long as it’s an accessory; that way, you can sport it each and every day.
