Saving Tips for Fashionistas: My Shopping Secrets

By Elma B.

Having been a part of this amazing global and multinational team of fashionistas for over five months now, I have been asked over and over again where I shop. Thus, I decided to let you in on some of our shopping secrets. I want to let you know that to be beautiful and fashionable does not have to cost a fortune. As for major magazine editors and celebrities, do not feel too envious when they wear fabulous clothes as most of them receive FREE designer clothes just to promote the brand. Thus, the fact that celebrity fashionistas are wearing latest collection of XYZ designer is not that special because they receive all latest high end designer stuff for free! 


My Fall Photoshoot 
However, for those of you who are like myself and are not an A list celebrity, but who do love fashion: here are my 6 shopping secrets:

1. Buy Zara, Topshop or H&M basics: e.g., t-shirts, jeans, black/gray shirts, etc.
2. Buy designer purses in consignment shops (you will be way cooler with a vintage purse than wear what everyone else is wearing!)
3. Buy designer clothes in Tj Maxx's Runway Collection (it is third the price than that of in high end department or designer stores!)
4. Buy designer clothes from outlets (my personal favorites: Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Off Fifth outlets); shopping tip: you can purchase luxury cosmetics (e.g., Dior, Yves Saint Lauren, and Lancome) for half the price in makeup outlets. 
5. Wait until the very end of season to buy some staple pieces for the next season; you can save as much as 70% off of clothes. For instance, go to the very back of the store (e.g., Zara, H&M, and Forever21) at the end of July or beginning of August, and you can find some amazing pieces for as little as $15. 
6. Look for designer purses and shoes on Ebay from well rated sellers; you can find amazing gems for half the price!

I hope you found beneficial my shopping tips...here is my latest fall outfit! I am wearing a Topshop dress, Zara stilettos, Club Monaco black velvet blazer, Free People vest, Ralph Lauren mirror sunglasses, and Chanel handbag. Until next time...xoxo!
