  • Set a Budget: Like your everyday finance you have to set a budget. Clothes is not up high on the list. So first figure how much money you have to spend on clothes. What you have left over.  So figure out what need. Get 100 buck in cash if that what you have to spend extra and stick to your list of clothes that you need. Happy Spending !

 

work hard so you can shop harder

  • sex and the city fashion GIFShop you closet: We have some many clothes that we just don’t wear and remember you ain’t got no money. SIMPLY SHOP YOUR CLOSET!  Pull out some things and see what you can do with them. Put some new buttons on your sweater. Refurbish your outfits if you need to. Just try to see what you have in your closet. I have came across so many fits that I was like … why didn’t I wear this ? Just confused! NO WIRE HANGER !!! random
  • Sell your clothes you don’t wear: Those clothes that you just don’t like anymore or never wear sell them to resale shop, donate/giveaway, or toss. Make three piles for sell, donate/giveaway, and toss clothes and go to town in your clothes. Make some room for you soon to be new wardrobe.

Love my trends tho !
  • Classic vs Trendy Fashion: Try to go for classic pieces versus trendy. I am a trendy girl I love to buy clothes that are super trendy. But like all trends they die hard. So yes it okay to love trendy clothes but focus on getting more classic pieces. Those pieces will last you a bit longer and less trips to the mall
    • Investment Pieces: This is the only time you can splurge. Do I get 5 things on trend or less expensive pieces or do you get something that will last you awhile?  It is okay to buy one expensive piece that you know can last you a lot of times.
    • GOTTA HAVE (Staple pieces) Figure out what wear you need and absolutely love. ex. Jean jacket. My staple piece is jean jacket and I have to keep this in my closet to might. I consider this my classic wear.

  • Outlet & Discount Stores are you friends. Save a few coins and get some cool designer clothes… win win !
  • Thrift shopping: You also can get a lot of cool things from the thrift store. You can be really creative or you can find so dope vintage wear. Be open to this!
  • Take a peek in the Menswear: I heard through the grapevine that their clothes are cheaper
