Bucket a Bargain...

Being that I have only been actively updating the Plum Bucket for two about two weeks...You may not know much about my personal style or shopping style...that is hopefully soon to change. I've been apprehensive on posting outfit shots, camera shy doesn't even cut it! While my face plastered on the internet somewhat frightens me, following bloggers who have amazing personal style and the balls to put it out there is my favorite thing about the blogosphere. 

As for my shopping style, I am an avid bargain shopper at heart with an intense love for designer duds. This oxymoranic style is often described as "champaign taste on a beer budget"...luckily for me I like beer. I love the hunt for amazing pieces that follow trends for chump change. Spending hours in a single store is nothing new to me. 

I am excited to share with you in the future some of my favorite buys and how I personally style them so stay tuned!

I have been crazy in love with bucket bags since I first laid my eyes on the A. Wang Diego bag... while I loved the bag I couldn't justify the price tag. A recent trip to Nordstrom Rack left my heart singing and my wallet happy as well. The bag is made by The Sak and is called the "Indio," the leather is so buttery soft, it surprised even myself to find that it was a mere 70 dollars. To be honest the original price of $139 was even a bargain. The size is will definitely be my main staple bag for summer. 

More fabulous bucket bags...
