Out With Old…In With the New

You should always have a plan when you are setting out on shopping trip. I am not a huge fan of lists but it is helpful to know what you have and what you need before making purchases.

In order to figure out what to put on the list you will need to go through your current wardrobe and eliminate a few things. This will provide you with a better idea of what you need to purchase and you may be able to make a few dollars in the process. While sorting through your closet, ask yourself the following questions;

Do I have 15 of these?
Unless you have to wear a uniform to work, you don’t necessarily need 15 pair of black pants. Keep the best looking and or fitting pair, take the others to a consignment shop to sell or donate them to a friend or thrift store.
 
Does it fit?
We all hold on to pieces that we just know we will fit again….If it doesn’t fit properly, let them go!
 
Does this piece work for my real life?
We have all been shopping and come across an item that we just had to have because one day we WILL attend a ball and the price on a gown is just too good to leave. It’s been 3 years since said purchase, and you haven’t even been INVITED to a ball let alone thought about attending one since the purchase, it has to go.
 
After you have gathered everything together and made your list, take those items to Plato’s Closet or Avalon Exchange. These are local buy and sell places here in St. Louis but they have similar exchange depots all over.

Penny Pincher

If anybody knows the value of a dollar it’s me. I wouldn’t exactly say that I’m cheap, I prefer the term frugal or money conscious. I recently decided to do a wardrobe overhaul, to work on changing my image. It is no secret I am not exactly the fashionista (give me my favorite jeans and a T-shirt and I’m happy) but I pride myself on having style. With that being said I decided to enlist the help of my friend who is the owner of Chic Stylez, LLC. Like myself she is very money conscious, but unlike me she has a keen eye for true fashion. (I will provide her contact information) I received a text from her last weekend asking if I wanted to go to the mall, JCP was having an extra 25% off sale. Ummm Yes! Who doesn’t love a sale? So without further delay we headed to the mall and as we always did we set a budget. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much luck in JCP so we continued on our shopping expedition. We ducked in and out of stores looking for some hot fashion friendly items, it wasn’t until we dropped in H&M that we found some great buys.
