Chic on a Budget Winter Edition | Zara, H&M, Everlane Haul


we are on our way to shop for shake on a
budget so what I do a chick on a budget is basically going to stores that are
more budget-friendly for me when I shop I do try to buy things that will last
longer and look really nice and that will look like I spent a lot of money on
but today I’m gonna show you what I look for when I buy these clothes and what
kind of small little details that can make an item look more expensive what I
notice the knit the way they are they don’t look good after like a few wears
when you wash them also these don’t let go they just stretch out and it becomes
like big cable and it looks cheap this one is a bit better because there’s a
desire to it we are back to the studio and now that I got you items for the
Chicana budget I’m gonna showcase what are my picks I have to say there wasn’t
a lot going on in stores when I do chic on a budget I do make sure that I show
you pieces that are legitimately good that are made well that will serve you
you know for longer than just this season there was not much going on but I
did my best and I’m actually happy that there are fewer items that I can focus
on first I wanted to say huge thank you to glasses usa.com for sponsoring this
part of the video glasses you said a comment been a company that I’ve been
working with for a long time now and I’m part of this partnership if you’ve ever
seen my eye where it’s all glasses USA so they are cutting the middleman and
the reason why I’m including them in the Chicano budget is because it’s exactly
that you don’t pay that extra fee that you do when you go to a store so the
prices are amazing and you get up to 70% off of retail prices and right now
wearing probably my most used pair but also have two other pairs that are
alternate between now they have designer brands as well on the website like Ray
Bans and also their own in-house brands this is the other one that I like to
wear and you can add any prescription that you need on the website it’s super
easy to use the websites you just go on it you take a selfie you upload your
photo and then you can actually match the styles virtually so that’s really
really helpful this was a collaboration with glasses usa.com and Hilary Duff
Lizzie McGuire what is it Lizzie McGuire songs and dreams are made of a complete set of glasses that includes
the frames and the prescription starts at $30 which is an amazing price
so these are my top picks that I use and where I’ve linked my styles in the
description box and you can find other styles online when you go to glasses you
stay calm so my first item from Chicana budget is
actually one that I got online I didn’t get it in stores and this is my ever
Lane bra high-waisted denim I got them in white and the price was really good
for the quality also ever Lane is a sustainable brand so it’s nice to happen
to the more attainable aspect of fashion I got them in white specifically because
most of my white pants are kind of flared so this is a great kind of high
boot style for the winter the next item from every Lane is this
turtleneck I wanted to find something that’s breathable and nice on the skin
this is 100% cotton and also the price for it was $40 Canadian which means it’s
around 30 u.s. also this is a staple that I feel like you layer a lot so you
want to find one that’s made of good material and won’t trap all the heat in
your body I actually just changed my mind about an
item because I actually wouldn’t buy it myself so I don’t want to recommend you
guys to buy it so moving on from Zara was this petticoat which I grabbed
honest ages because of the color is it so thick no well you have to layer yes
but if you are into the teddy codes I think this is a really nice more
elevated color to one I feel like it would be really multi-purpose as
something that you can just wear during the day and something that you can
really transform into more of like an evening ish look then we are gonna move
on to agent M I got this jacket that really reminded me of
of the vintage jackets that I usually find at thrift stores the way that it’s
structured it’s kind of baggy it has a masculine look but it is nicely made
this one also has a wool blend in it which I like and I really like the color
as well so I wanted to show you guys this one in case you are in the market
for the more vintage II feeling coats you can also use it as an overcoat and
again with light colors it would look really nice with darker colors it will
work so I gravitated toward those then some other items that I found that I
liked was this Cod this actually has a wall of pakka blend in it
unlike the color and then I also found these gloves that I really like the
colors as you can tell I’m really going towards the lighter colors this winter
also an item that I usually buy from either Walmart or Costco but I found
them at H&M it’s these tights that actually have
fleas inside of them so they will keep you warm
these are $15 Canadian so it came back to us
these are really really good essential to have in the winter time another thing
that I got are these polka dot tides that I actually wore to a premiere in
New York I went to really high-end stores to find them and I found a pair
that literally looks the same for like $200 then I went to a gem and I found
them for like $15 major score I’m gonna be wearing those a lot I really like
like the fun aspect they bring to an outfit so that I also got at H&M I hope
you guys enjoy this video I’ll see you next time thank you lovely so much for

  1. For more winter fashion videos watch my 8 MUST HAVE Winter Boots | *Survival Guide!* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=432pTIN-HCI&t=145s

  2. I really love your content, your look, and your style. It helps me a lot to buy stuff like that btw, I would like to know what's brand and color of lipstick that you used at 1.18, please

  3. If everyone's gonna complain that Valeria didn't choose ethical brands why don't you recommend her cheap ethical brands instead of just stating the obvious? No matter what the problem is in life if everyone just shits on it and doesn't actually look for a solution then it's really useless criticism. Also when youtubers including Valeria introduces designer leather bags or whatever animal skin it is, NOBODY get's upset at the sustainability issue of the fashion industry there. It's time for everyone to educate and grow instead of constantly pointing the finger and blaming everyone else around you.

  4. Y'all, chill…most of us cannot afford ethical fashion…plus she featured a sustainable brand here, which is hard to do for a budget video…if you're not cool with her videos, take your negativity and pushiness elsewhere.
    I love this series!!!

  5. Yeah okay we all know fast fashion isn’t the best choice.. But let’s be real, Im a student, I dont have much money, those fast fashion shops is all I can afford (and Zara is not that cheap in my county by the way) so I appreciate when Valeria or someone other shows stuff that are good quality and wont ruin me because surprise I still have to wear something and I want to look kinda good. If I could afford a tshirt that’s the price of Zara coat I would buy it. But I cant.

  6. If you research fast fashion and how they function you'd stop buying from them. These clothes are stitched from places where people are paid below what they actually deserve. How can you even expect fair payment for labor when you're paying $20-30 for a coat? How much payment would the person who stitched a shirt for hours get if you're paying $1-10 for it? Not to forget those people have deplorable living conditions and are forced to work overtime just so the demand for this fast fashion could be filled–which is ACROSS THE WORLD.
    I know these clothes may be very inexpensive and it only makes sense for people to buy them, but what's sustainable for you isn't for somebody else. In fact, it's cruel and void of their rights.
    Please, I request you guys to buy clothes and other stuff from local markets and to be aware of where your products are coming from. This life isn't just about living for ourselves, it's about others too.

  7. With you i learned to invest in simple pieces that i can use it 5 years from now!!! Thanksss! Love from Brazil ♥️♥️♥️

  8. I am actually really disappointed, and I never make this kind of comment. But I just hope that you'll see what your audience is trying to tell you. Trying to be all "eco-friendly" and then telling people to buy fast fashion doesn't make sense to me. You could be chic on a budget going to the thrift store, or vintage store, or buying on ThredUp, Poshmark, etc. There are a lot of other options and in spite of that you keep doing the same fast fashion videos. Not only that, but you are actually ignoring all the comments with a critique on it. So, yeah, really disappointing to see.

  9. This is exactly what I need to see 🙌🏻 winter fashion shopping trip is tomorrow and this gave me all the inspo🙌🏻💓

  10. ethical brands are really expensive and her approach of buying “cheap” but looking for things that will last is really helpful and for some of us is the best we can do

  11. Personally, i don’t think the critique for promoting fast fashion is valid. Not everyone can afford sustainable fashion. Even for people who don’t hoard stuff and shop for a few basic pieces – its expensive.
    And again like many people mentioned not everyone has access to good thrift stores.
    Valeria also always promotes doing fast fashion “slowly”. She often talks about not buying poor quality stuff from fast fashion brands which you constantly have to replace and advises buying good quality stuff which you can wear for a longer time. I think that is a better approach to shopping from here if sustainable options are not are not a possibility for you

    What i personally dislike is the amount of sponsored content Val’s been putting up. The videos which aren’t sponsored arent even well thought out ( as this one). The quality of content is deteriorating. And you can genuinly see that she is more excited about getting to work with a brand or talking to us about that stuff (which is understandable and i support her), but the ratio is way off and genuine content is poor quality.

  12. Would love a video on how you thrift and your favourite thrift stores. I’ve tried it a couple times, but always come home empty handed. What are your tips? Ps. Love your content

  13. Please reconsider what you are promoting to such a wide audience, the fast fashion industry is lethal. Extremely disappointing to see. I would have hoped to see you evolve with the times and be more aware but apparently not.

  14. Why do you feel it's okay to benefit from other womens suffering? The sweatshops and pollution caused by fast fashion aren't to be ignored. Especially by someone who supposedly loves fashion. Exciting videos can be made in thrift shops and second hand stores, is it even necessary to get a whole new look every season? The new generation is definitely moving away from that kind of pressure and ideal. I used to love your content and over the months I felt I overgrew it with the most basic knowledge of fast fashion. I also don't agree with the idea of not being able to afford sustainable clothing. Thrift shops and second hand stores, inheriting clothing form your parents, mending clothing, making your own, swapping with friends, all exciting ways to wear new pieces. I hope you think about this and gauge whether you revenue is more important then others suffering.

  15. I really love your videos but where was the real character of chic in a budget. It was just a haul but usually you show and tell about some elements that make it look expensive. I am sorry but this just was more of your glass cooperation than chic on a budget 🙃

  16. Hi, great video. I would love to see more of this kind.
    I really like the sweater you are wearing, where is it from?
    Muchos saludos

  17. Fan of the concept not a fam of the unsustainable brands. I highly suggest everyone to watch documentaries like “The True Cost” about the fashion industry. You can buy cheap clothes in thrift stores or invest on better clothing brands that will last longer. “You have to be rich to buy cheap clothes”. Everlane is great tho. Thumbs up for that ^^

  18. Hey!I🙌 I know this is irrelevant with this video… But can you make a video about your hair journey? In every video it appears shorter and shorter💇👌 and I am wondering what's your thoughts on this change?? Thanks!! 😊💕

  19. Everyone who shops in these stores (INDITEX owned) needs to watch recent Hasan Minhaj "Patriot Act" episode called "Fast Fashion" (on Netflix). It is extremely eye opening. Those stores release new items couple of times a week (!!!!). Stuff is crappy and is meant to be thrown out after couple of wears so we buy more and more and more. Its so consumeristic, it hurts to watch. We scream about pollution, but it comes from everywhere, from everything we do, clothes shopping including. According to Netflix, average american woman buys 68 articles of clothing a year! And regarding this episode, those coats don't look good :(, they look like they are poorly tailored from crappy material, you ll freeze in Toronto in these. I agree its so difficuilt to pick anything of value in these stores. These coats wont last two seasons, it is cheaper to get it somewhere else for twice the price but wear it for 3-4 seasons. I understand that not everyone has enough money to get stuff, me including. Last year I have switched to Massimo Dutti (also INDITEX owned sadly) but their stuff lasts much longer and and is still affordable (especially if you get stuff on sale), and I buy wayyyy less. I think bloggers should start talking about those things. Idustry is trying to make money so they produce more stuff of worse quality, bloggers are trying to make money so they dress up all the time unintentially promoting us to buy more to look different all the time. This circle has to break, or at least slow down. I felt sad this Black Friday and for the first time I did't end up buying anything for myself (I did buy couple of Christmas gifts for the family) :(.

  20. Discovered your channel from the "life-changing fashion hacks" video and honestly this is the best thing I've stumbled onto on YouTube by far. I have learned so much from you- not just fashion and beauty tips- but most importantly, you taught me the importance of self-love. On you I see a woman who's not afraid to be herself, to embrace and love herself for the way she is. And that energy she radiates around her is the happiest I've ever felt and that smile on her face is the brightest I've ever seen. You're the living testimony of the power of self-love.
    You make me want to start taking care of myself, start looking after my hair, my skin, my mind, my soul- you make me realize how pretty I am, and now I want to start learning to love myself, for no one else, but just myself.
    You are unlike most youtubers/models, your beauty is so raw and real, there's no need of words to explain, a true gem you are. I am sure there is lots of us out here who feel the same.
    Love you! Thanks for being a blessing to this world Valeria! 💫

    P.S. that quirky bubbly personality is everything 😍

  21. This video looks like it was just for glasses and some clothing items sprinkled in between. Very disappointing pieces..

  22. The thing with knitwear is that people throw it in the wash after one-two wears.. I usually wear a t-shirt underneath and I wash these after one wear and the knit only a couple times a year, by hand! I have that exact H&M tan jumper (from last year) you mentioned in the video and it looks as new because of that. I use a debobbler like every month on all my knitwear which also keeps them looking fresh and new

  23. The horror of fast fashion will never be excused under the justification that its affordable and cute , like wtf Valeria youre rich !

  24. Do you have new video editor? Something has definitely changed and i dont like it, and i liked this series more in your home/closet than in studio

  25. Lovely pieces but at 4.19 I have yet to see affordable pieces of clothing. $30 for a black turtleneck isn’t affordable. I get black turtlenecks for $10 that last me 5 years.

  26. *goes nuts for Black Friday @ Zara

    Days later, Valeria puts up a chick on a budget video….

    Me: 😟😳😳😳😩😩😩
