There are no words that could describe the pain when knowing you can’t afford something on a mannequin while window shopping.I get it…its hard to keep the money in the wallet, but its also totally fine to buy that one thing we really do want (as long as you can still buy yourself food that week..?). I am a typical girl with a normal clothing budget. It is totally normal to go to the Sale section first and not feel totally shameful. Affordable fashion may be hard to reserve, hard to find, but definitely not hard to flaunt. Pieces on sale from different stores or boutiques can make such an expensive looking outfit because not all cute outfits are the expensive designer ones. I promise.. you’ll feel so much better knowing you paid half the price. It’s no Chanel dress, but it’s still fabulous!
Your whole closet does not have to sustain so many clothes from designer brands for you to feel fashionable. The clothes you have from that sale section from forever 21 can make such a great look that satisfies your style and look for the day!
Don’t forget to check the internet and look up your favorite stores and resist the temptation clicking on the new arrivals button!!! Pick out something you like that is good quality, but at the lowest price. You might think there is no such thing but there is!(I recomend Nasty Gal, Modcloth, Nordstrom)
Affordable fashion isn’t finding the cheapest shirt but what you think is fair and how much you would like to spend. Next time you go shopping, when you see something you like don’t look at the price tag! Think to yourself what you would pay for that piece and if the price seems to be over what you thought…think again…and ask”Am I still willing to pay for this for this much?” It all comes down to this, dress for yourself also meaning pay what you think is reasonable because it’s all for you anyways.
Don’t forget to go out this weekend for the Labor Day sales!!!
