Today, I offer this simple set of instructions:
1. Go to American Apparel and buy yourself the plainest, cheapest black t-shirt/tank dress available.
2. Add a pair of shoes from my ACTUALLY affordable list (with prices, Below)…
Red Suede Metallic Detail Booties, $21USD (Above Left) from gojane. Buckle Detail Patent Sandal, $19.40USD (Above Right) from ASOS. Leather T-Bar Platform, $132.86USD (Below Left) at ASOS, which may not fully constitute cheap, but for this much style, I believe they qualify. And these Suede Thick Strap Pumps, $69.55USD (Below Right) would do well with tattered (do it yourself, and don’t you dare buy ‘em like that) black stockings.
3. Wear your perfect summer party outfit until you dance the shoes to pieces (herein lies the benefit of choosing from the pricer bottom row).
4. Repeat as often as necessary.
