Money vs Style
As I sit here next to my best friend searching Amazon for a cheap pot of OPI muppets collection I can't help but wonder if having more money makes it easier to be more stylish?
Think about it.....
Being a student means I am poor 99% of the time apart from my birthday or Christmas. Luckily for me it is my 21st birthday on Sunday and therefore had the luxury of having over 200 pounds to spend on of course clothes! Although I wanted my Mulberry Bayswater for my birthday I was EVEN more over joyed to unwrap my beautiful Michael Kors rose gold watch off my parents. (partly because it is extremely shiny) but mainly because this is the first truly expensive item I have really owned. The first thing I know I will keep for the rest of my life.
So does money make you more stylish?
Look at celebrities, they are always the ones captured and photographed for the style pages of magazines, so why not photograph normal people? I know that people are not really interested in those "normal" people and what they're wearing but its not really fair to make us normal folk to feel like we aren't as stylish as those with money.
Olivia Palermo - Did we know how stylish she was before she was famous? Or was she just not stylish at all until she became one of the stars of the City working for Elle?
She is by far one of my favourite style icons and possibly one of the most sought after fashion icons by everyday people. But at some point in her life she was simply a nomal girl trying to work in fashion. So does the fact that she now has money behind her mean that it is easier for her to look this stylish? I think it does!
I am happy enough spending my birthday money in Topshop but I am more of a quantity than quality kind of girl, but I know if I had all the money in the world I would definitley want to dress like Miss Palermo!
