About a golden Saturday.



You know what's really one of the hardest things about being a teenage-student-fashion-blogger? The money. Or better: The money you don't own.
And you know what's really one of the hardest things about living in Switzerland? The prices. And the stores.

Now take a look at all the famous, really well-known Bloggers there are outside. Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad), Shea-Marie (Peace Love Shea), Aimee Song (Song of Style) and so on. What do they have in common? They all wear expensive clothes. Or at least clothes that are too expensive for a college student like me. And imagine that I live in Zurich. Switzerland! The famous island of high prices!

So don't get me wrong - I absolutely adore these famous bloggers. All I'm saying is that it is tremendously hard to be a fashion blogger if you don't have that much money. In fact, the problem is pretty basic:

If you - for a change -  have some money, you have to spend it on clothes you can wear on a everyday basis. You have to buy pieces you could wear to school, to work, to go grocery shopping or whatever you have to do in your everyday life. At least, that's how it is for me - the large majority of the pieces in my closet have to be "allrounder". 
Now you can consider yourself a really lucky person if you happen to live in a city where people don't look strangely at you when you are wearing like bright pink trousers with a white crop-top and a statement necklace. But you know, where I live, people will stare suprised at you when you are wearing something other than skinny jeans. 

That's the reason I have to spend the money I own on clothes I can wear on a daily basis. That's the sad truth. And the reason my blog-name is no money for high fashion.

Anyways, I just wanted to show you what I wore yesterday. It's a pretty simple, totally-Zara outfit and it's quite casual. Black with a little bit of gold.

"winner crew" crop top - Zara
Cardigan - Zara
Necklace - H&M
Bag- Zara
Watch - Michael Kors




zara boots
Zara Jacket

Since the "winner crew"-top is a crop-top, I struggled long time how I could make this work with normal skinny pants. After a lot of trying, I decided to wear a light, black blouse underneath it.

So that's it for today!

Keep your eyes open for my new two "fashion days"! From now on, Wednesdays are dedicated to fashion for him, and on Friday we'll look at a little bit of Fashion-History.

(I follow everyone back, pinky promise!)

I'm looking forward to your comments/opinions!

With lots of love,
Lory xxxx

  5. A lot of the blogs get mailed expensive brand name outfits to wear and review and then have to send them back. It's sponsorship, and it does make it harder to achieve an income via fashion blog. Your very down to earth, and I like that. I'd rather view everyday outfits than ones I'll never be able to wear/will wear for one day. c:
    The necklace is gorgeous!

    1. Well that's surely true. And that's a good point - looking at outfits you can actually afford to wear is sometimes even more interesting :) Thanks honey!

  8. Most bloggers are still students, so it's related to most of us... Even though you did not spend a lot of money on it, your style still looks pretty and nice <3

  9. I definitely understand what you mean about the whole money issue--it sucks! Just like your blog name I have absolutely no money for high fashion! I'm so jealous of bloggers like Rumi and Shea. Hopefully one day for the both of us, right? :)
    Anyways, love the outfit so much and it's so stylish on a reasonable budget for a majority of people which makes it that much more amazing! Love the top and how you paired it with gold accessories and that great black-and-white bag xx So so stylish, girl!
    THANK you soo so much for such a lovely comment on my blog, Lory! It really meant the world to me and I'm so happy that we found each others blogs! Can't wait to see more and keep in touch xx

  12. a lot of these famous fashion bloggers have sponsors sponsoring their clothes and flying them around for fashion weeks and events. i was in zurich last summer, it gotta be the most expensive city i have ever set foot in. everything is expensive, even a bottle of water costs so much more. a small lunch could burn a hole in my wallet. apart from the high cost of living, it's beautiful, clean & i feel really safe walking around.

    thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. Yes and that's why it is so hard to be a fashion blogger without having any sponsors.. And yes it's exactly that, Switzerland is so expensive - especially Zurich. But I'm really grateful that I can live in Zurich :)

  35. It's true that blogging actually takes lots of money. It's best if you get creative with what you have to get different outfits. Sometimes it's difficult, but you can always borrow clothes from friends or sister or mum, I mean why not? :)
    Thanks for your visit. We already follow each other, apparently. But still, keep in touch :) xx
