Cheap Fashion Thrills

-------

FendiLooking to make a high-fashion impact on a shoestring budget? The recent runways stand as proof that all you need to tap into the momentary zeitgeist is a little creativity, not a maxed-out credit card. Take, for example, the pretty young thing caught posing with a McDonald’s cup during Sydney fashion week like it was a piece from Jeremy Scott’s fast-food-inspired collection for Moschino. Meanwhile, Chanel’s supermarket sweep of a Fall show convinced us that even grocery carts can be glamorous (especially if they’re being pushed by Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, and Joan Smalls). Ditto goes for Anya Hindmarch’s luxe “Have a Nice Day” bags modeled after those handed out at convenience stores. Other cheap styling tricks we’re eager to try out soon include pinning a violet to our furs à la Fendi and securing our ponytails with dollar-bin scrunchies like Dree Hemingway did in Trager Delaney’s latest lookbook.
