#3 Know where to shop
  • Some stores design clothes that will work for your body type and some do not.
  • Certain stores are more likely to carry your style of clothes as well
  • Make a note of which stores carry your style/fit you best so that even when you are thrift store shopping you can watch for those brand names.
  • Coupons – once you know where you like to shop, get on their mailing list for coupons. Places like Kohls and Gordmans have great coupons and if you plan your shopping, you can usually get an extra discount

5 shopping idea shopping vs serious shopping
#5 ShoppingIdea Shopping vs. Serious Shopping
  • Idea Shopping
  • Purpose: to find style ideas
  • Inform sales attendants that you are just looking
  • Shop anywhere you like and try on things that catch your eye
  • If you find something that you feel you absolutely must have, make sure you shop your wardrobe at home with that item once you get back to be sure it was not an impulsive purchase
serious shopping
Serious Shopping
  • Purpose: to find specific items that you need for your wardrobe at a good price
  • Stay focused on your goal until you find the right item at the right price – be careful not to blow your budget on whimsical purchases you come across
  • Double check your decision by trying the item on at home after the purchase and make sure that it is still comfortable and attractive in your own mirror
helpful hints
Helpful Hints:

When you feel like you need something new:

  • Shop your own closet first
  • Try to determine what piece you are missing
  • Is there a certain mood that you need to include in your wardrobe?
  • Spring trend? Green is in!
shopping tips
Shopping Tips
  • Make quality purchases on items you will wear at least once a week – shoes, pants
  • Shoes – shop for comfort first, beauty second
  • Consider Your Colors and take a list with you when you shop
  • Tops/Blouses are less expensive than pants/skirts, so express your style with cute tops. They are easier to find on the clearance rack or in the thrift store too!
  • Accessories are another inexpensive way to add interest to your wardrobe – scarves, belts, etc.

Know what you are shopping for and stick to it!
