Theme 41. Affordable Online Shopping Fashion Finds. Pretty Missy

NYC blogger Ulia Ali gives tips on where to find affordable trendy looks. review

With so many online shops popping up on the wild "fields" of Internet every single day and bombarding us with endless ads, emails and posts, it is quite overwhelming to narrow down your search and find what you need. For that reason I decided to launch a Theme 41 on my blog, where I can list my online shopping finds with some really affordable prices.

Well, if you read my blog somehow regularly or follow me on Instagram, you might saw that I own quite a few pieces from PrettyMissy online store (my autumn look here and this is my Williamsburg look post). Today I wanted to share other items from the store and highlight some of their new arrivals or pieces that just went on sale.

Pink gloves in NYC. Ulia Ali styles the look!

First item that I saw on PrettyMissy and knew I HAD to have are these elegant and chic pink gloves. Priced at just $7, the gloves immediately add a very sophisticated and glamorous touch to almost any look. I found them to be easier styled with a matching beret, a bow or with similar colored accessories.

Another item I picked this time was a black silky top. It is pleasant to skin, a bit revealing, but very sexy and fun. You can find it on sale here.

I have also looked through some of their newest additions and sales items and picked a few outstanding pieces that you might like. Overall, PrettyMissy is shop where every girl can find very affordable, but chic looking pieces! The website often runs some big sales, so it is definitely a great place to shop for new outfits on a budget.

My Top 3 choices today are the Jasmine inspired silky two-piece, glamorous silver dress and a fun floral top. Have fun shopping and remember to come back for more online shopping tips!

Every winter I face the same problem - where to get the best boots for winter? Of course they have to be warm. And comfortable. And super chic and trendy and durable. And also they have to go with all my outerwear! Not an easy task, isn't it?

This Week I will be adding the hottest boots you can and SHOULD get this season! And it starts with the most comfortable wedge biker boots from Loriblu. They are edgy, which I love and has all these amazing details: buckles, chains, decorated wedge.. They are now on sale on Sentiero Shoes!
