Episode 20: Occasion Shopping on the Low

Wedding season. Alumni balls. Reunions. Work events. The Grammys. (Ya’ll waiting on ya’lls invite too?).  It seems like as we get older, there’s always someone asking to celebrate their major life event- which translates to spending hordes of money on dresses, hairstyles, makeup, and stunt pieces (or is that just me…?).

This week’s show is all about how to save coins on special occasion wear and workwear.  In this episode, we’ll talk about best ways to shop and keep your precious coins and still assail the special occasion fashion game.  Clothes may be expensive but style is absolutely not.

Quick Tips:
- ACCESSORIES! Some of ya’ll are pressed for the dress but ya’ll have dehydrated bank accounts.  You can revamp a dress in your closet by adding a statement necklace, fancy earring, or a different hairstyle.  It doesn’t have to be expensive! Get creative with your closet.

-MAKEUP:  ANY look looks different with a statement lip, a structured face, or a $5 pair of properly placed eyelashes. A good look is all about doing something outside of your comfort zone.  If you are known for dark lips, get something in a pink that works for you.  We purchase clothing to feel good about ourselves.  Purchase an addend to your makeup will that will yield the same sentiment.

- RENT: If men can do it, so can we.  Stores like Rent the Runway allow you to rent high end dresses and pieces that are appropriate for work, and an evening out.  Many do a monthly subscription to access everything Rent the Runway offers.  I highly recommend Rent the Runway for those wanting to step their style game on a budget (I am not affiliated with them by any means).
