Today I share tips for fashionistas on a budget! I respect the hard earned dollar and know you do also!
I write often about being a savvy and conscientious consumer. Today I share my favorite savvy tip. Shop late in the season!. For instance buy winter clothes right NOW! Just as everyone is snapping up spring fashions, shop now for huge savings. I illustrate this point with a sweater dress festooned with faux fur shoulders, purchased new and locally for $12.99!
This super soft and cozy dress will be perfect for many seasons ahead. I have seen next years runway shows, as you have, and know that faux fur and feather trimmed apparel will be on point. More importantly, it is a dress that while trendy, is a piece that I can see myself wearing even as this trend tapers down a bit.
We fashionistas on a budget have many tools to save!
Buying second hand in one great option, and buying online at off-price sites like Lastcall , Saks Off 5th.com, and Overstock are good choices too. These sites feature current season merchandise and respected brands at good discounts. Flash sale sites like Gilt and Zulily. com offer up some great savings too.
My handbag was purchased at a local off-price store many years ago. How about this faceted and multi-colored lucite clasp! I paid under $30.00 for it.
This snowy week was a challenge. Shimmering snowfall is beautiful to see, but so much of the blissful white stuff makes walking outside tricky. These photos were taken indoors, and I used an app to create backgrounds from photos I took, to make the shots more interesting. Behind me in some of the shots is a Miu Miu bag from Bloomingdales. I loved the display and incorporated it. Below another shot in montage form.
Focusing on the unusual faux fur sleeve in the shot below. This detail is sort of rare.
