High-low is the name of the game when it comes to fashion, make-up, or interior design. If you invest in some key pieces and then supplement with more affordable options most people will start to view your holistic taste as one of quality. Personally, people’s opinions of the brands I should be wearing or using in my home do not really contribute to my purchasing decisions. When I go for a “high” item it’s usually because of the following reasons:
1. I want it to last.
2. I spend a lot of time in it or using it. (see my bedding post from last week.)
3. I want to pass it down to my children.
The “low” pieces can be just as stylish and won’t break the bank. Honestly, if I had all of the money in the world I would still be purchasing a ton of “low” items.
One of my best friends just purchased her first home. Yay! And with any first home, filling in the blanks of the space can be quite the challenge and a HUGE blow to your pocket book. Since we live hours apart, I am not there to fulfill my best friend duties, such as nic nac shopping. So here is my contribution to fill in the blanks of her adorable first home with some affordable options. Hopefully, this little digital gift will help the rest of the VE readers pick some great “low” pieces for their home.
Take a look at my curation of items that won’t break the bank!
Wow right! You get three guesses to answer the question – which stores did I pull these items from? Go!
HD Buttercup, FourHands, Horchow -Ha, nope.
West Elm, CP2, Z Gallerie – Closer.
3. Target, Target, and Target- How’d you guess?
It is actually quite impressive that all of these items came from Target. It makes me somehow more justified in dropping no less than $75 every time my feet brace their automatic doors.

People say the “low’s” of life are not fun! In this arena I completely disagree.
