As a fashion blogger, readers expect me to showcase new threads when I do outfit posts, and they’ve told me they love reading about my shopping adventures. However, due to some recent cutbacks at work due to the slumping economy, my fashion budget was trimmed significantly. What’s a girl to do when she suddenly can’t shop as much anymore?
Instead of whipping out my credit card and overspending, I decided to learn how to look the absolute best I could while spending the least amount possible. The shoes in the window at Nordstrom still totally tempt me, but now I save up if I want something special instead of splurging on a whim. The rest of my purchases help me keep my shopping budget low, my closet fresh, and my outfits on-trend.
