The plain white tee.

In three words it "goes with everything". Provides chic benefits with any jeans/skirt/pant combo. It’s our fail safe option that always saves the day. The best thing about basic white tee's is that they're available for such affordable price e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e; Listen to us, we sound like a couple of people on infomercials or a commercial for Coles going on about sales… but to be honest, What is the difference between a plain white tee that’s $20 dollars or a plain white tee that’s $49.95? They're both plain white tees, and they both do the job equally well. You’ll soon come to realise that we, like many of our fellow full time student/budget savvy fashionistas, have a particular place in our LBD (that also doubles as a money-bank) shaped hearts for Asos (10% student discount, duh!). Take a peek at some plain white tee outfit inspiration below & our current favourite (affordable) plain white tees - why should you pay more for a basic necessity to be part of your wardrobe… Go on, take advantage of that sneaky 2 for 1 sale and stock up on basics.

Thank us later xx

Market HQ V Neck $29
Bardot Asym Tee $29.95
As you can tell we love the Olsen twins & their style because it's perfect casual outfit inspiration. Go for ripped denim, layered rings and necklaces, along with oversized accessories to achieve their 'no effort' casual look. 
For more of a night look, pair your white tee with a mini (like Crystal Reed in Image 3) or leather shorts (Image two and four) along with some heels and a great clutch. We also love a great statement necklace to really add some extra class to the look.

The name says it all - Live Luxuriously. Except we like to do it for less.

Another lazy December afternoon, another day of us discussing Gossip Girl, Pilates, ways to enhance fabulousness, and longing for winter so fur coats could hide our fatness. Yep, that is the conversation that brought on the revelation of this very blog.
“Oi we should so do a blog like live luxe or something for people who want to look famous and have nice expensive shit without the impaired dosh flow.” That my fellow fashionistas, is the sentence that started it all…
Lets be honest, who doesn't love sales or those ‘extra 20 percent off the reduced sticker’ signs. We are two city girls in search of these red ticket sales on our most favourite and beloved items as seen on celebrities, runways and our favourite- Pinterest. To bring to life our virtual Pinterest closets that don’t break our banks or our father's wallets, we are on a mission to find luxurious items and fabulous finds that are friendly to our credit cards. We want to bring you the best and most affordable purchases so that every time you leave the house you can strut your stuff all the way back to the mall and grab another bargain buy.

Let your enlightenment to luxurious living begin. 

- Jessie & Kate.
