ok, so i have said it before but i will say it again; i need some serious fashion help! my wardrobe is basically nonexistent. and has been since baby #4 was born. i know i need to do some shopping for myself. since when has buying the basics for myself become a splurge or something "extra"? since i became a mommy of four, i guess! another example of needing to prioritize myself. i put off shopping for myself for two big reasons....lack of time to do it and lack of money to do it. it is hard to find the time and the money to shop when you need an entire new wardrobe. i would love for someone to submit me to what not to wear, anyone?
today, i was so excited to find a post today on this sweet blog. kelly is doing a fun "dress for less" post . if you find yourself in the same boat you should check it out!
ok so i only have a few tips, but i thought if i share some of mine and you share some of yours we can all dress for less!!! please leave a comment with some of your tips for dressing for less!
~ for in between weather...dress in layers: use long sleeve tshirts to extend the life of your short-sleeve/sleeveless tops & dresses. wear hoodies - i love them and wear them a lot!
~ online shop... i can not shop well with kids so i have started shopping online. fyi...i just got a shipment today from children's place, their shipping is always only $5!!!
~ use coupons and only buy on sale... i try to never ever pay full price.
~ set a budget for what you are going to spend and set a max price on individual pieces (example: i will only pay $20.00 or less for a top!)
~ when i am in my "mom gear" i still wear makeup and do my hair - it may be my infamous ponytail but it is done!
those are a few of mine, so what are some of yours...
