Fashion Friday: Buy then search

Photobucket

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!

I have a crazy habit. I am addicted to shoes and clothes. I love designer clothing. I unfortunately do not have a wallet that matches my habit. I also live with in my budget. I only charge what I can pay off that week. I found these amazing boots. They are KATE SPADE. I found them  at Marshals for $79.99. Yikes! That is 1/3 of their retail cost but out of my budget. I had $65 left of my holiday money from my husband. We each get $100 for holiday gifts. I bought the boots anyway. I over spent by $20. This was fine because I have a $20 all about me budget each week so I was going to apply that.

   I decided I need a new shirt to go with the boots so I went to work to find a deal. I scoured the internet until I found them on eBay. I bought them with shipping for $48 and I returned the $79.99 ones. I was under budget and my feet just love Kate Spade! The moral of the story is do not put on the item and go home and research to see if you can get the item for less. I can’t wait to find my shirt with the money I saved!

    That is very smart information. Sometimes I find myself impulse buying, as if someone is going to buy the item before I can research the price lol, but I always try to compare price online first.

    For more expensive purchases, I like to try the item in store and then go on the internet to see if I can find them cheaper.

    This is great advice. I really need to get rid of the clothes I do not wear. You are right if you can’t see your clothes you can’t really make great outfits. Thank you for sharing!

    I agree with your advice. I have trouble getting rid of the old and buying new. I also am addicted to shoes my hubby made me donate some of my shoes to make room for his shoes. love those boots!
