|College Party with an 80's Theme|
Dressing especially for the normal person on a budget is based upon events. You buy clothes based upon a certain party, celebration, job requirement etc. In order to make sure you look great I suggest always buying an entire outfit instead of picking one thing at a time.
Wether it's a New Year's Eve celebration, casual get-together or even a wedding, buy everything at once. It's the worst thing looking in your closet or dresser and having tons of clothes but none that go together. When you purchase clothes for events, you buy everything even down to the socks. It gives you that new feeling and it's cheaper to shop this way. I do not even come next to any stores or shop unless I have somewhere to attend. It's CHEAPER, makes it easier to COORDINATE and saves LAUNDRY time.
When it comes to following fashion trends, I am not a fashionista so those things never matter. My fashion sense is based upon what's in my wallet and what I see in the mirror. Maybe that will change once I make a lit bit more money. MAYBE!
Remember to save money & time, buy clothing when it's required. BUY an OUTFIT not an ITEM.
