I wouldn’t typically describe myself as selfish, but the other day, I was scouring the internet for cheap (under $50) items I could buy that would make me feel and look expensive. Since half of that sentence is basically an oxymoron, you can imagine how difficult this task was. All that being said, what I discovered was so good that it pained me slightly to share my findings with you here, but I decided to do the right thing and write a little shopping story about them. 

On my hunt, I was looking for fall 2021 finds that were rich in spirit but cheap in price. Below, you will see that none of the items featured ring in at more than $50. All of them are either quality basics or trendy must-haves, and of course, each pick had to look at least triple the price. Otherwise, it didn’t make the cut. So enjoy my latest sartorial sweeties, and hopefully, they will bring you just as much joy and excitement as they brought me.
