I always get inspired before I put an outfit together. This time my inspiration came from Audrey Hepburn, who has always been a symbol of class. I usually have a simple idea and use what I have in my wardrobe already before spending extra money. I’m frequently tempted to buy new pieces, but I enjoy the challenge that comes with putting together the pieces I already own to make a new outfit. Anyone can buy something new!
I’ve been low on money lately, so even though I’m still making yard sale trips, I won’t have much to spend on any new items until after Christmas. Most likely my outfits will come from articles I already have. I know it seems like I spend a lot on clothes, but in reality I rarely splurge – I buy items that I’ve been eyeing for a bit, that I know I can pair with a lot of other things, and hopefully for far less than the price I see them for originally. Patience is key for the savvy spender. No matter how much money you have, you can be a smart, fashionable shopper.
I hope you all have a good week!
