“In our exclusive video series, My Life in Vogue, we look at the lives of six remarkable women, including Cipriana Quann, co-founder and editor in chief of the website Urban Bush Babes. With the days about to get longer and the temperature aspiring to rise, we asked her to list ten items that are on her shopping list for spring season—and many of the themes revolve around her mother’s generation, the seventies, from which she draws endless inspiration. “I am heavily influenced by the music, film, art, and activism of that era,” she says. “That being said, my style is always changing so it’s hard to put it in a box. I do have one rule: Whatever I am wearing, function, affordability, and comfort is an absolute must.” -Vogue.com

(I have to say it was pretty damn cool to visit Vogue.com and see little old me on the main home page of Vogue.com for the ‘My Life In Vogue’ series)


This week I was asked by Vogue.com to submit a list of items I was looking forward to buying this Spring that could be accessible online (which eventually dwindled down into a list of ten for the feature). As I found my self searching the internet I realized when it  comes to my personal style, aesthetic, comfort and quality are obviously a given, but as was mentioned above affordability is a big part of my style niche. I have always seen fashion as art in motion and the space around us as a mobile museum, therefore priceless but… I believe you can look great without spending thousands of dollars on an ensemble, which is why most of my items in my list are budgeted under 150 dollars. Below are some of my items I submitted for my “Affordable Spring Shopping List” with Vogue.com
