Saving Money on Clothing

I like the thrill of new clothes, shoes, bags, or even books. I find myself “needing” quite a few items the very moment  my paycheck hits the bank. Shoes on sale, sweaters, etc. So when it comes to clothes, I honestly try my best to save as much money as possible. And although these suggestions may be familiar, one can never be reminded too much!

1. Discount Stores: If you remember my previous post about Ross, then you know how I feel about these types of stores. I found a gorgeous Calvin Klein suit from Ross for $31. I also absolutely love their kitchen items. I won’t always find what I need, but for sheets, spatulas and the like, I’ve found nothing better. Similar stores such as Marshalls also produce great stuff. Yes you may have to look around a bit, but hey, its worth it. Read the rest of this entry »

Gorgeous GreenAnn Taylor Loft… big sale. I got this green sweater for a song. And an adorable ivory long t-shirt for $4! If you ask me, run over there. The good people at the Loft will tell you what to do from there.

Over the holidays, I fell in love with a Calvin Klein Suit. It was a pinstriped, gorgeous number and I liked it so much, I allllmost spent $250 on it. But of course, my sensibilities (or bank balance) kicked in and I walked out of the store… then a week later… I say a nearly identical suit at ROSS. And for.. wait… $30! I snatched it and had to call my mother. Yes, I know sad right? But I’m the one sitting pretty in my new Calvin suit. So Ross rocks, period.
