We wonder how or when did recycling old items became so fashionable? Surprisingly, you get to think that it is actually normal to spend a small fortune in a piece of clothing, a handbag or even shoes that were used by several other individuals before you!  The older, more raggedy and worn out, the better!  Unbelievable but so true.  That is the magic about fashion, the beauty of the unexpected.  Vintage has introduced itself in the fashion world and revolutionized the concept that new is not always better.

Chloe Sevigny and Sienna Miller

Take a look at our fashion muses, Vintage Queens Chloë Sevigny and Sienna Miller.  They are the experts in selecting vintage, one of kind items and mixing them with modern day-to-day basics.

Your grandma’s cocktail dress, Aunty Annie’s 60’s hard wear belt or your Mom’s go-go boots….well just forget about those go-go boots, and mix and match them with a basic LBD or a classic white tank top and jeans, and voila! Fashion magic at its best.  So, go around, search for that special vintage piece that will set you apart from the rest and explore different options, because remember, timeless is for ever.

PETA's Campaign

Not only has monetary reasons made fur less fashionable in the past decade, but it has been more of an ethical and personal decision.  We have all heard and seen PETA’s aggressive Fur Is Dead campaign against fur, but aside from the blood, the rotting carcasses and sad-faced animals, does fur still emulates luxury?  Yes, sadly it does, but now a new trend has evolved and that is faux fur.  Many famous retailers and designers as H&M, Forever 21, Stella McCartney, BCBG Max Azria and Juicy Couture, among others, have made the conscious decision to forgo fur completely from their collections.  And what a fabulous choice this has been, not only is faux fur economically accessible to everyone but there is no apparent sign that distinguishes real from synthetic, besides not having a dead animal’s skin covering your body.

Last night we surely enjoyed a wonderful night filled with fashion, friends and excellent people.  We gathered at Green Grass Boutique for their annual Art & Accessories Bazaar and gawked at some truly excellent works of art!

Firstly, image and style consultant, Marisol Gomez, welcomed us.  She offered her services and gave us a color analysis on what palettes complement our skin types.  What a revelation!! I was surprised to learn that the colors that best suit me are burnt colors, especially coral.  Well I better do some smart shopping now!!

Later, we walked around and discovered amazing jewelry and art displayed all around the boutique.  The fantastic art exposition was from artists Isa Zapata, Cristina Boter, Jamie Gershen and Rosaura Perez.  The jewelry designers were Citrine by the Stones, Mishky, Crish, Silvana Danies, Equinoccio + Equinoccio, Lola James, Strada di Gioia, Jenny Salinas, Astrid Poletti and Katch.

With mother’s day just around the corner, why don’t check out this amazing Bazaar and maybe find that special something for the main woman in your life!

The Mandrake Team introduces our new section called: It Girl on a Budget because we understand the great pleasure that comes with affording great fashion.  An example of this is a luxury handbags. What happens when you are unable to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on the latest Marc Jacobs, or a timeless classic as a Chanel?

Well, it is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so by going with a designer-“inspired” bag we are actually eulogizing a great piece of fashion.

So praise-be the Internet! Because there are many sites that can delight our in-vogue senses while we are on a temporary “saving mode”.  We recommend fashionjunkee.com or shopsueyboutique.com to provide you with fashionable handbags inspired by the great ones for quite the reasonable price.  Your options range from Marc Jacobs and Chanel to Balenciaga’s stylish “Motorcycle” bag.

And the It Girl, being the resourceful minx that she is, will explore different options and take advantage of them.  Obviously, it will never replace an original, but we should not let the current economic situation limit our chances of looking trés chic, so why not indulge?

Give us your ideas of how to be the perfect It Girl on a Budget, we will love to hear from you!
