Meet Ellie Angulo, a San Diego, California native whose blog Fashion With Ellie I came across during one of my browsing sessions. What’s so special about her, anyway? After all, the web is practically littered with thousands of fashion blogs from all over the world. Let’s take a look!
“I realized that the beauty of fashion is wearing an item your way, that’s what makes fashion original.”
It’s not only the sequin jacket that caught my eye — it’s the way she threw her outfit together that really got me reeling. And best of all? Ellie veers away from high-end designer clothing and accessories that drill a hole in the pocket. Instead, she loves to bargain-hunt. Her favorites stores are H&M and Forever21.
“I want to share my daily outfits with all of you, and show you that shopping on a budget can be fun and trendy.”
In her blog titled Sequin and Converse last June 13, Ellie wears a fabulous $18 sequin cardigan from Forever21 (which she snagged online during a sale), an $8 white tee from Gap (on sale as well!), a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans from Joe’s Jeans, a cobalt blue handbag and a cute pair of Converse sneakers. The turquoise bracelet and other stacked bangles plus aviator sunnies provide an added touch of street chic. We heart your style, Ellie!
