3 Things To Consider Before Making a Fashion Purchase

We know you’re all about that fashion life, and we get it – spending money on clothes is always a good idea.

But if you’re like most of us and have way too little money to spend for such expensive taste, then we want to help a sister out. We’re giving advice out for free – and who doesn’t like a freebie here and there?

#1 Think of at least 3 different ways you can style the item.
If you don’t already have at least 3 different outfits that you can picture yourself in with this fashion item, then maybe you don’t need to buy it just yet. It’s good practice for buying less and getting more out of things.

#2 If you can’t stop thinking about it, buy it.
If you’ve talked yourself out of buying this thing for a long, long time and you wish you had this item to complete your everyday outfits, then maybe it’s worth investing in. It’s not like an impulse buy; if you can’t get it off your mind when putting together an outfit, go for it!

#3 Can you get a better deal for it elsewhere?
This is rule number one for any frugal friends out there. Shop around in-store and online to see if you can find the same item but with a smaller price tag.

Beauty trends to look out for in 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR, LOVE BUGS!

We’re kicking off this beautiful year with some beauty trend predictions to look out for. We’re taking runway style and inspiring and challenging you to incorporate these trends into your own everyday style.

Tweak your style a little and try something new this year. Maybe a new hair style and cut? Or maybe treat yourself to some bold and bright lipsticks?

Here are the beauty trends to look out for in 2016.

Feeling blue
It’s all about applying some blue around your eyes, whether that be an eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, or maybe even a hint of glitter? Make your eyes pop!

Line it up
Winged eyeliner is so 2015. This year, experiment with unique ways that you can line your eyes. Go a little cray with the liner.

Dewy glow
Makeup artists have revealed that the dewy look is in. They want you to achieve the look that appears as if the person has been out all night dancing!

Off duty hair
Slick hair is out and day old effortlessly casual up-do’s are in. Don’t worry about the wind ruining your hair anymore, because that’s sorta the look we’re going for here!

Lip smack
A classic trend that will always be in style. Vibrant lip colors are in, so there’s an excuse to spend some dosh on more lipsticks!

Is beauty your thing? We’ve got what you need.
