Frugal fashion diva
Women and fashion go hand in hand. But it's way too easier to call yourself a fashionable cookie, when you have money in abundance. Your fashion sense will be on real test, when you will be a frugal fashionista. Within limited means, you have to be trendy and beautiful. In a world that emphasises on outer appearances, where the first impression is the last one, dresses play an important part in making that impression. Your garb can make you stand out in crowd, or can play down your image considerably. It isn't important what brand you are wearing than, how you are wearing it.
Learn to say no to things you don’t need in your wardrobe
Before you start from home, you should continuously tell yourself what you need. and what you don't. Have the courage of conviction to disagree with the latest trends, the over priced designer dresses and what you are in’ two minds about.’ Always remember that you have to view shopping just as you would view your own marriage. You just can’t say yes to something you only 'like'!
Tag all the cash receipts
Don’t throw away your receipts after a buy. Keep them till the last day of exchange, lest you change your mind about the dress. Most often than not, we end up buying clothes that we don’t require, but liked on a mannequin. The temptation lasts till we go back home and give it a sound thought. And sometimes, what you presume to be a very good looking dress, may not suit you at all.
Keep tab on your expenses
Something that everyone will agree with is, the more you save, the more you will be able to spend. If you are a fashionista, you will also have a budget specially allocated for fashion. From that, you have to save half of the said amount, to be able to spend later on something exclusive and exquisite. And to be able to save successfully, you must have a log sheet where you write down your expenses and savings. More than anything else, it will stop you from unnecessary expenditures, and will make you happy looking at the balance sheet.
A saviour in the form of gift card
It’s a difficult ask to be frugal when you have a credit card at your disposal. Therefore, you can opt for a gift card that will have limited balance, because of which it will help curb your expenses. Gift cards are not only a great way to gift, but also a great way to keep track of your finances. The time when it is absolutely necessary for you to explore shopping, the gift card will come in use. The moment the balance gets over, that’s when you know you have to stop. The cards are generally refillable, so next time you have to go shopping, you can add funds to do the same.
Seasonal sale--must visit
It is a sacrilege to miss seasonal sale. The sale time is the only time a frugal fashionista can splurge and buy the things that you imagine in your wardrobe.
