5 Tips: How To Look Expensive on a Budget

5 Ways on how to dress like a Parisian Girl on a Budget

You can look expensive without breaking the bank; it all depends on how you pair your pieces and what you are pairing.
There are many ways to look high-end and still have your money intact.

1.Long Coats

Instead of a short puffy coat, go for a long one. The longer the coat, the more expensive it looks.
A long below the knee coat will make you look super luxurious and like a Parisian.

2. Mid Boots

Mid boots will always add extra sophistication to your outfit. Instead of wearing sneakers ,
opt for a pair of mid boots to look extra polished and Parisian chic.

When looking to dress high end, an accessory is one staple you shouldn’t forget!
Go beyond costume and plastic jewelry and focus on classic pieces like pearl earrings, hoops, and classy wristwatches.

Pair pants and turtle neck with a blazer and a trench coat, then rock a gold necklace and pearl earrings!

5.Pair Black and Gold:

In Parisian chic fashion, black clothing is a canvas. You can accessorize with anything but
pairing black with gold is another level of sophistication. Black and old are a perfect match to give you that expensive look;
you simply can’t go wrong with them.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!
Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

A fabulous shopping spree!

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!

Linda asked many questions during the booking concerning budget, style, sizes, interest. It maximized our time together and led to some marvelous new and vintage finds. It was so much fun, too! Highly recommended experience for mother/daughter combo.
