Posted September 18, 2012 by in Fashion

Meet Michelle Cabrera, a New York-based fashion blogger who knows how to look expensive on a budget. Love her style just as much as we do? Follow her adventures on her wonderful blog Mademoiselle Michelle!


  • Tank: $5.99 H&M
  • Faux Leather Shorts: $24.95 H&M
  • Sandals: $8.99 Forever 21
  • Jewelry: Thrift and ASOS

What was your favorite outfit of Michelle’s? Tell us in the comments below!
