I do fashion blogging as a business, it´s my source of income. How am I suppose to keep up with fashion and maintain my wardrobe without overspending and still able to pay myself a salary at the end of the month? This thought came to me today while reading Helen´s post on Money Talk. Other than doing my own hair and nails instead of frequenting at the salon downstairs, my other secret to saving money while staying fashionable is shopping during clearance sale.
It´s usually a combination of patience and luck. Sometimes, the item that you really want to have goes on sale but then your size ran out. But so far, so good. I love buying items for less. And I don´t mind wearing clothes from last season. I mean, who really notice?
Pink Dress, Red Dress, Blue Dress, Print Dress
My-wardrobe’s Final Clearance is now on, with all sale items 50% – 70% off! Bright striking dresses in solid color, or printed shirt dresses are first in my list. I find sleeveless style a plus because you can wear it as is in summer or you can layer it up for fall and winter.
Neon Jumper, Heart Knit, Ball Skirt, Pink Jumper
I also love pullovers and jumpers, especially oversized style. It´s the same love I have for oversized tops. I´d like to experiment mixing a print jumper with a printed ball skirt. It think it´s fun!
Black Leather, Pink, & Tortoiseshell
Jacket, Belt, Sunglasses, Pumps, Stilettos
Black leather, jacket or pumps, will always remain a classic. It doesn´t matter whether your black leather jacket is from last season, it always stays on trend. The same works with sleek leather pumps. So don´t ever feel guilty investing more on these items.
A bright slim belt quickly adds interesting detail to a look. On one of those rare occasions, I splurged on an accessory. I purchased this pink python belt last May before it went on sale. During that time, the XS size was already sold out; but because I really wanted it, I bought the S size. As expected, it´s a little bit long. My husband made two new holes so it could fit on me. But now look, this belt is now 50% off and there´s even an XS available. I wished I waited.
