As a young professional, in school or fresh out of college, it's pretty fair to say you don't have a very disposable income. As much as you covet the new Prada loafers or Chanel bag or that insane Margiela coat... Ugh, there is just no way you can afford it all, even if you skip a few meals and walk home rather than take the train or a cab. That's when you find ourselves searching for more affordable but equally as fashionable alternatives. Rushing to all young fashion lovers' rescue is the online wholesaler. 

Recently, there has been a boom in the popularity of wholesale websites, often internationally based, that offer youngsters unique and designer-inspired apparel and accessories for super cheap. One of the most popular of these sites, especially among the blogger community, is Lovely Wholesale. Located in Hong Kong, Lovely Wholesale, has an abundance of fun, unique pieces updated on their site almost daily and their prices are sometimes hard to believe. It's so easy to find wearable pieces that fit in your budget.

There is nothing like purchasing a luxury fashion item. It's a piece of history, a symbol of craftsmanship, and a work of art. It feels wonderful. But fast fashion, like fast food, can be okay in moderation. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to stay stylish, and is made fast to keep up with current trends. And you know what they say, fake it until you make it. So, until you are a CEO or a famous movie star, you don't have to starve yourself of fashion - Lovely Wholesale has your back.

Here are some of my favorite selects from the site:

Pouch, $6.49; Sweatshirt, $9.99
Hat, $4.49
Glasses (similar), $6.99; Sweater, $5.99

Love and Affordable Fashion,
