Hi! My name is Carly and I am so happy that you have my little corner of the internet! I am a full-time college student. I work part-time in retail and have an absolute passion for fashion! But, by reading the first few sentences of this paragraph it probably does not come as a shocker that I do not have an endless supply of funds to support this passion of mine. When facing this little dilemma I realized I had two options. Option one: to stop frequent shopping trips (yeah, because that was going to happen 😉 ) or Option two: to achieve fun and fashionable looks on a budget. Option two it was! I absolutely love finding cute clothing pieces for a bargain! Contrary to popular belief you do not have to only visit second hand shops and yard sales for such deals. It is incredible how far you can stretch your dollar in big-name stores! A typical conversation between me and any one whom ever is kind enough to my outfit a complement goes as follows:
Person: “I like your dress! It’s so cute!”
Me: “Aw thank you! It was only $5!”
Maybe it’s me being a little too proud of my thrifty finds or feeling the need to show people that you don’t have to break the bank to feel confident in your own style or maybe it is somewhere in between. Whatever the motivation may be is the fuel behind the blog that you are reading right now. The purpose of “welldressedandimpressed” is inspiring other young adults how to “dress” exactly how they want and be “impressed” with the prices they can snag great clothing items at! Other topics that I will be focusing my blog around include: being crafty and DIYs, college life (from the commuter perspective), and other life hacks and tips on how to be a young girl trying to ‘adult’.
‘Till next time!
