“Hi Kids. It’s me, your rich mom, sharing with you five cheap things that actually look expensive,” she says at the start of the video.

The fashionable pieces range from chic dresses to comfy sandals.

Lim can be seen wearing layered gold jewelry, a black shirt, and a black blazer overtop, looking effortlessly expensive.

Though she lives lavishly, wears designer brands and attends high fashion events, the self-described rich mom mentions that she loves to score a good deal.


The first clothing item she tries on is a Who What Wear Collection puff sleeve faux leather A-Line dress that costs her only $30.

A dress in a similar style can be found at Target for $35.

“This dress looks like it could be anywhere from $300 to $500 dollars,” she adds.

The next item she shows off is a black Scoop Scrunch Sleeve Shawl Collar Boyfriend Blazer, $29.99.

There are certain characteristics of the inexpensive blazer that make it look worth more than it is.

“Cheap things usually look cheap because it doesn’t have structure or a silhouette,” the shopper states.

She claims that the slight padding on the shoulder gives it a straight-lined look making it look expensive.

That is something important to note when shopping.

The third fashion item to grace screens is a pair of black Scoop strappy heels that were only $18.

“The silhouette is on point. It’s simple. It’s sleek,” she says in a voiceover as she models the shoes on screen.

The next article of clothing she shows is a Prospect the Label Women’s Bustier Midi Dress, which she only paid $24 for.

“I usually say stay away from print because prints can easily look cheap but this one is done right,” she declares.

She proceeds to share more fashion hacks concerning the beautiful silhouette, especially how the ruching at the end of the sleeve gives it a tailored look.

She closes out the video detailing her clothing buys by bringing out two sets of cute summer sandals also from Scoop.

The matching crocodile print shoes are shown in both black and white.

“I loved them so much I had to get them in both colors. It’s simple. It’s structured with a slight asymmetrical silhouette and they’re super comfy,” the content creator says as the video comes to a close.

Her shopping advice was much appreciated by many of the video’s viewers, with many expressing it in the comments.

“Rich mom gives the best advice,” a viewer wrote.

“Great ideas rich mom thx,” one user added.

“Rich mom always comes through. Love her so much,” another praised.
