Shop your wardrobe before you go shopping

Before you go shopping it is important you do a wardrobe audit. This will help you ensure you don’t buy items you don’t need or buy items you have already. I enjoy shopping my wardrobe. It allows me to find clothing I have completely forgotten about and the challenge for me is always how to breathe new life into these old pieces. I enjoy thinking of new ways to style my looks and a wardrobe audit is always a nice opportunity to do so.

Go for preloved

If you find gaps in your wardrobe, you can opt for shopping for preloved. There are loads of websites that sell amazing preloved items, which is great for the environment. Plus many high-end designer brands are more affordable from preloved websites and out-of-season items are usually available on preloved websites as well. If you are struggling with where to start in your hunt for preloved items, start with eBay, Depop, Vinted, Vestiaire Collective, and The RealReal for stylish designer brands.

Don’t buy what you don’t need

This goes without saying but it is one of the most important tips when it comes to sticking to sustainable fashion. Ignore the sales tag and only buy what you need every time. If you don’t need a new dress, don’t buy a new dress even if it is only a tenner. Don’t buy what you don’t need regardless of the price tag. The sales will always be there so ignore the pressure and only shop if you have to.

Christmas Money Saving Fashion Tips

This festive season is all about spending, which leaves most of us very broke in January. With the Christmas parties and celebrations going on, we all tend to spend a little bit extra buying sparkly outfits and accessories for the many occasions we have lined up. I keep getting invites to events all over the country, so I can imagine many fashion bloggers are receiving many event invites as well.

It is very easy to get carried away with the party season and drain the bank account in the pursuit of looking stylish. The good news is you don’t have to. You can look stylish and not spend all the money you have.




Here are some money-saving fashion tips you may find useful –


Will it be worn

Research has shown, we only wear 10% of our entire wardrobe. Is that true at your end? I won’t say it is true at mine but I do have my favourite pieces I wear regularly. So before I buy anything new, I ask myself if it would be worn and how often it would be worn. My answer determines if I buy it or not.


Have a budget

Having a clear figure of what I am prepared to spend on a shopping spree leaves no room for over spending. I always have a budget in my head, and I write it down if I have to. That way I can shop smartly and happily, knowing when to stop. Withdrawing the exact amount of money needed also works, leaving no room for me to go over my set budget.


Worth per wear

When it comes to buying high-end, I like to go high-end (or as high as my bank balance allows me) on footwear, bags, jackets and jewellery. And get reasonably priced pieces for the rest of my wardrobe because I look at worth per wear when deciding on how much to spend on an item.


All Black OOTD




I sell many of my pricey preloved items on eBay and I make a small fortune on them. If you look around your wardrobe, I am sure you will find something worth listing, so have a dig around.


Look out for the sales

I am always on the lookout for bargains, so I do most of my shopping in the sales. I hardly buy anything full price these days.
