We often underestimate affordable uniqueness. When it comes to fashion, it's reassuring to look great without literally emptying your pockets. Baby Phat, Prada, and Versace are among several labels that tempt us, make our eyes pop out, and give us reasons for wanting to look great. Aside from receiving compliments, there are several factors that come along with shopping to look your best. We find ourselves in bliss during shopping sprees but the end result leave us down once we realize how much money we’ve actually spent! So, with a little discipline and financial savvy, it is possible to look your best for less!
Compare and Contrast: Two skills that play a huge role in the process of bargain shopping. Setting your eyes on a particular item is expected, but give yourself time to compare the first item to the next so compromise can occur. Let us think back to the last time we went to the mall. Purchasing that cute blouse or those dark denim jeans made us happy but four hours later we stopped in Macy’s and saw a better bargain.
The first step to looking great is being satisfied with where your money is going. Keep in mind that the quality of clothing is a key component when it comes to shopping for less. Even though the more affordable item may be tempting, typically high-end products are assumed to have better quality material. No one wants to buy a shirt that will shrink or fade after one or two washes. Or, we may walk into a thrift store and see a t-shirt that is very affordable. What we fail to notice is having that shirt for an extended period of time may not be guaranteed. Ironically, the cheap thrift store t-shirt may outlive the high-end Gucci or Prada shirt.
Everyone wants to have the hottest name brands without paying attention to price. Setting yourself with a budget before shopping can help get you get the look for less and keep you from shopping on impulse. Shop for the best but do it for less.
