I'm here to help you with all that with my 4 tips on how to find the perfect outfit for back to school,a bashment or just taking a Lime Rude gyal style.
Never Underestimate the power of your friends closet. People gain and lose weight all the time that's life and of course everyone has friends of all shapes and sizes. If you have a roommate this might work better but ask a friend if they have anything they don't wear anymore or if you guys are the same size borrow the worse they can say is no and if they say yes maybe they have a bag full of things they don't want and you didn't even know. Now you have free pants.
Tip Two If hand me downs aren't your thing,SALES SALES SALES . Never underestimate the power of a sale. Even if the sale rack has things from the past seasons. For me the best deals happen when you buy off season sale racks. Of course finding your size may be hard but your wallet will thank you.
Value Village is LIFE!. Again this isn't for the people who can't handle the second hand ting. Value village has secret gems you just really have to look. Think of it as a thrift store version of winners. There will always be a deal on something great. Both of my outfits below feature items from there
REWORK! This is huge for me majority of my old tshirt that were too big for me i converted into crop tops. Jackets can be patched ,jeans can be made into shorts and the list goes on there is tons of DIY on youtube (be on the lookout for mine). Unless the item smells or you really just don't want it in can always be worn a different way.
Hopefully that helps you on finding your perfect outfit pon a budget.Hit me up and let me know your Tips!
