    8 Budget-Friendly Fashion Bloggers You Have Yet To Discover

    We love looking at designer pieces worn by street style stars and fashion bloggers, but few of us can actually afford them. That explains the rapidly rising numbers of fashion bloggers who proved we can look fab on a budget. Budget-friendly fashion blogs like Frugal Fashionista and Cheap Chica have already earned their fame, but the next, sartorial-wise generation is already breathing down their neck.

    The 26-year-old Cortney started her style blog "in a desperate need to have a place to be completely girly". Travelling the country with NASCAR doing PR for an XFINITY Series driver, Cortney hated seeing her closet full of nice clothes sitting unworn, she says. Her style shows a striking woman confident in her femininity: Flowing midi skirts and heels, leo print, vibrant colors and statement necklaces, she has them all. “It terrified me to put my style, thoughts, and suggestions out on the interwebs but, as Sylvia Plath said, “the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt”, she writes on her blog.

"I love playing with different styles, trying them on like masks, to see … which will turn me from a common girl into the next best thing, quick as magic”, she writes in one of her posts. Irene’s style is about classic pieces and subdued colors, which she pairs with accessories in bolder tones. Her motto is “Fashion should be fun, and true elegance is simple”. Coco Chanel would definitely agree.
