I have my envelope ready to save my receipts and I am ready to find that < $25 outfit at the mall. I might add the following store to my itinerary: Discovery Clothing.
Here is an idea of what I am looking for:
1) printed leggings
2) oversized top
3) bandeau top
4) bracelet with skulls
Let’s see what I find!
I would like to provide my game plan for finding the best bargains without spending lots of time. Usually, I like to focus on going to no more than three or four stores in one trip in the mall and no more than two free standing stores. I will also provide tips on where to find the best deals and what to think about when it comes to re-wearability.
For this week, I plan to go to the following places:
The Local Mall
1) Charlotte Russe
3) Pacific Sunwear
I’ll try to mix up the stores every month so you can get a sense of how you can make this work for you. All of the pieces I buy on that trip will be incorporated in outfits worn throughout that month and beyond.
I got hooked on saving money partially out of necessity and the challenge of making the most out of a tight budget. I started this blog because I want to share my venture into finding great fashion for the least amount of money possible.
I have found the following for under $5.
1) a set of owl and wing earrings for $1.99 – new.
2) A yellow skirt and two flowered skirts for 2.99 – Charlotte Russe
3) A Billabong sweatshirt for $1.00 – Plato’s Closet
Those amazing finds are only a sampling of the treasures I have found!
My fashion sense: I enjoy wearing simple garments with bright colors, comfortable fabrics and making them pop out with interesting pieces of jewelry.
A little more about me: I am in my 30s and I live near a major city in the Midwest.
My fashion philosophy: Have fun with what you wear and pay attention to the way clothes fits your proportions.
Look forward posting my first outfit soon!
