I love fashion and I have always been inspired by it, but I am also a firm believer that quality fashion doesn’t have to be expensive. Each week I come to you with a new outfit, but that doesn’t mean that I spend a fortune on my wardrobe. I’m sure more than one of you have clicked through one of my fashion posts and thought, “How much do you pay for your clothes?”
When I first starting writing fashion posts, I thought it would just come on each week with an outfit along with a few tips and tricks along the way. However, I have determined that I have more responsibility than just throwing on an outfit.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a special gift for finding a bargain! I grew up as the daughter of a teacher and then eventually married a preacher, which means I have never been blessed with a huge income to spend on clothes. So, I had to develop skills for finding quality pieces at low prices.
As you can see, my shopping strategy involves several things: outlet stores, second-hand clothing, shopping sales at high-end stores and keeping quality staple pieces for years. So, I guess it’s time for the moment of truth…I think you may be surprised by the grand total.
In January I will start a new series on how to become a frugal fashionista. I will be sharing all my best tips learned over years of experience and I have the outfits to prove it 😉 I hope you’ll join me!
