Welcome to the first post of Save my Whallet!
I am still not sure wether I will take pictures of myself with the outfits (I am not that photogenic) or simply photograph what I bought, nevertheless I just had to start blogging and put aside these thoughts. Probably I will take some pictures and upload them, otherwise it doesn´t look personal and I don´t want that. Anyways I think learning by doing is way better than eternal procrastination. So here we are!
This outfit consist of four very simple garments and neutral colours. I chose the grey chinos from Stefanel because these trousers are really versatile: they look good with pumps for a serious but relaxed look, with flats for a casual look, and with UGG/EMU boots for a laid back and sporty look. Since I am a fan of flats I went for the second option and combined the chinos with these silver flats from Calvin Klein Collection, which match really good any other colour, especially black and gray. For the upper part of this outfit I picked a grey cashmere sweater from Calvin Klein Collection. There was no size S so I bought the L instead, because I don´t mind the oversize effect, plus it was so soft. Last but not least I simply could not resist to the knitted wool coat of Stefanel. It´s big, it´s warm, it´s fluffy, and it´s cool! Mine is a bit darker than this one (gray and black instead of black and white) but the cut is just the same. To the leaves I added two grey fur cuffs I bought at a flea market, which give the coat a special touch. The great thing about them is that you can take them on and off, accessorzing any other outfit.
So here is the receipt:
CK Collection flats - full price: €158 - paid: €45
CK Collection cashmere sweater - full price: €223 - paid: €87
Stefanel chino trousers - full price: €57 - paid €15,80
Stefanel knitted wool coat - full price: €259 - paid: €79
Fur cuffs from flea market €20
The total value of the outfit is €717 - Instead I spent a total of €246,80 which is less then the wool coat full price!!! So I saved a total of €470,20 on this outfit. Great! Apart from the fur cuffs everything else was bought at the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in Salzburg.
