Fashion: No Cash, Go Closet Shopping

The Fashion Misadventures of MalanB.

It does not easy love fashion while on a budget. I want Louis Vuitton bags and Manolo Blahnik shoes but my budget just won’t budge. What can you do with a small wallet and big fashion ambitions? I have no idea so I going to write about all my fashion goals, woes, and everything in between. Welcome to the fashion Misadventures of Me, Malan B.

Adventure #1

No Cash, Go Closet Shopping

As I battle my fashion sense on buying yet another outfit for the already expanding wardrobe, I realize that my wallet is empty! The shopaholic in me wants to charge it and think about the financial woes later but the budgetista in me refuse to pull out that lovely Debit card for something I have absolute no need for. I decided to heed my mother’s advice and go look and the closet and see what I have ...a.k.a Closet Shopping. Yes, closet shopping!

A term I hear around my household for years but never really used in my life until now.
Closet shopping helped to me figure out what type of clothing looks great on my body type and what does not. Knowing your body type is great tool for picking out clothing that looks great on you.

When you are strap for cash like me, you have to sometimes look at what you got and make something out of it. Being in financial limbo can bring some serious creativity out of you. Have a cute and extra long scarf...use it as a belt. Have a old shirts, turn it into a purse. Make your Old Clothes New Again is a great way to add new pieces to your wardrobe without spending a dime. Revamping your old wardrobe into something new is a great DIY project and eco-friendly. Closet shopping is a cleansing and refreshing experience. You can see how your personal style my have changed throughout the years.

Tip of the day: When you are low on cash and want something new to wear, check that Closet. You will be surprise to find what you are looking for is already there
