What I Wore: The $52 Outfit


comediansdouchechillz originals

Hi! I’m Giulia Rozzi, a very stylish fauxshionista. I came up with this great original never-been-done-before idea: post pics of me in my favorite outfit of the week! I hope my wardrobe inspires you as much as I have inspired me and myself.

Helloooooooo! Deepest apologies for the lack of consistency in posting lately, life stuff came up like work, moving, a Youtube video of a puppy hugging a bunny, REAL LIFE SHIZ. I assume ya’ll have been naked with fear uncertain how to dress yourselves sans my perfect always correct amazing fashion advice. Well go put on some pants and let’s get back to talking about how great I look!

This is my $52 outfit which I am extremely proud of because in case it wasn’t clear a $45 outfit means the whole thing cost $45. How? Because I am an amazing shopper.

Tank: Urban Outfitters $5

Vest: Macy’s $5

Pants: Urban Outfitters $5

Shoes: Aerosoles $30

Purse: Joyrich LA for Le Sport Sac $7

Underwear: HOW DARE YOU ASK ME SUCH A QUESTION?! (insert slap across your face here)

I wish I had better shots of the whole outfit together but because I just moved I don’t have a full length mirror yet (I AM LIVING LIKE A SAVAGE), and my roommate was asleep and I didn’t want to wake her up to take my photos (also if I woke her up then I couldn’t watch her sleep) and so I was forced to snap above the head selfles.


Look at how coy I am! And with a little help from Instagram I’m basically now in addition to a fashion expert also a high end professional artistic phenomenal photographer. (LOLOLOLOLOLOL photographers that spent money on photography school where all you need now is a Mayfair filter LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL)

Btw, the best filter for dick pics is Rise (Zing! Thank you! Good night!)

They are hard to see but I am wearing the sweetest feather earrings made by one of favorites Catherine Weitzman (also the maker of the tiger necklace in the first photo and I’ve shared on this blog before).

The bag is one of my favorite things I own. I got it last year when I was doing copywriting for Macy’s and they had a sample sale. I also had to write copy for horrid MMA t-shirts for toddlers.


Here’s a better shot of the pants and shoes. The shoes are on their last leg, the gold is scrapping off the bottoms but dammit are they cute and comfortable, Aerosoles makes a sensible shoe and I’m a sensible gal (except when I’m drunk, depressed, on mushrooms, going through a spell of mania, or trying to pick frozen yogurt toppings).

The pants, can you believe they were $5? FIVE MUTHA FUCKING DOLLARS! I got them on sale at Urban Outfitters and was hesitant at first because red pants make me think of all the period accidents I witnessed in middle school and the dreaded “DC incident” where my 14 year old sister got her period and I was 10  and didn’t know anything about menstruation. We were on a family vacation in the nations capital and earlier in the trip I caught my mom washing my sister’s stained jeans in the hotel bathroom sink. I just assumed she cut her butt or something. Later when my sister and I got into a fight in a very crowded walk way of the Smithsonian I yelled ”at least I don’t bleed in my pants” But now that I own red pants I love red pants. Sometimes I question what to wear with them, but so far have found grey and denim to be complimentary. The other question I have is, do these pants make me look like my father will never be proud of me?


Unable to find a mirror or get the right self portrait angle, I decided there was only one more option- take a subway selfie. Subway windows are mirrors for homeless people and I’m not above (or sometimes far off from) being homeless chic. And yes, in this photo I was listening to 4 Non Blonds “What’s Up” on repeat because it’s my playlist and I’ll openly weep on public transportation if I want to.

Till next time!
