Jacket: Zara sale find
Tunic: Dex (old)
Pants: clothing swap with a friend
Boots: Old Navy

When an occasion comes up we are always tempted to go out and buy something shiny and new to wear.  If you’re on a budget, get creative with sourcing your pieces for a fun night out.  Obviously, sales are always and economical way to go shopping.  I scored this very cute faux fur leopard print jacket at Zara last month.  It was regularly $129 and I snatched it up for just $49!  Another great resource is your friends.  If you have some gal pals who are a similar size to you, get them together for a night of wine and clothes swapping.  I grabbed these very comfy and ultra skinny ponte pants from one of my girlfriends.  I wear them all the time and all it cost me was a top I was done with.  Lastly, dig through your closet.  I know I say this all the time, but it is obviously the cheapest and easiest option.  We all have treasures hidden deep in our closets that we have long forgotten about.  I have had this old Dex flowy tunic for years.  I’ve been able to wear it so many ways.  I even wore it for my stagette about three and half years ago.  It is one of those clothing items that just keeps on going.

What are some of your tips and tricks to look stylish for less?


Fave 5 Chic Makers

Lately, I’ve been keeping my wardrobe pretty classic.  Lots of black and white, jeans and tees, and of course cozy lounge wear at home.  Even the most basic of wardrobes can easily be elevated with the right pieces stocked in your closet.   My fave five chic makers are…
1) Sequins.  Whether for day or night, sequins are the easiest way to kick an outfit up a notch.   My go-to’s are either a sequin top or clutch.  Even a pair of jeans look amazing when paired with some sparkle.
2) Statement Necklaces.  I keep a bunch of these on hand for a quick style fix.  They don’t need to be spendy.  Cheap and cheerful can do the trick too.
3) Leopard Print.  You can wear a little or a lot.  It’s always chic and can add some real personality to basic black.
4) A Hat.  A beautiful wide brimmed hat has an effortless cool girl vibe.  Choose a neutral colour so you can wear one hat with several looks.   This is currently on my own shopping list.
5) A Cape.  My plaid cape is one of my favorite things in my closet.  It layers beautifully over jeans and dresses plus it feels like you’re wrapping yourself in a warm blanket…a stylish blanket of course.
