9 Tips To Shop Smart For Fashion Wear

When it comes to women, they shop more on fashion elements like clothes, footwear and accessories. Many a times, it gives you a shock when you find you've spent went way more than what you need to. It affects the budget very strongly; if you're a regular shopper, you need to save money while shopping for clothes. So, here I am sharing with you some amazing tips that will help you to shop efficiently by saving money. 

1. Use only cash
Many a times we have the habit of using credit cards when we are shopping outside of our budget. The first thing to do is to stop this habit, buy things using only cash. If you don't have enough money to buy that £300 dress, then save enough money to get it. Trust me, this definitely works.

2. Go for discounts
Most stores come with silly discounts that are not worth going for, however, some stores have amazing deals and bargains that you cannot say no to! So if you're planning to save money on clothes go for promos, like the House of CB promo vouchers. This allows you to get clothing at discounted rates without compromising the quality.

3. Shop out of season
No intelligent shopper hits the stores when new collections drop; you need to shop carefully for every season. Shop for Summer clothing when the Autumn sets in and for Winter when the Spring sets in, stores usually have clearance sales so you'll be able to shop for more clothes, and spend less! Make sure to shop the trends that can be worn throughout the different seasons. 

4. Beware of the sale
There are always sale offers on many products throughout stores; avoid overspending by going for clothes you need rather than going for everything. 

5. Be careful of trends
In the fashion industry, some trends can come and go quickly. If you're on a tight budget then beware of buying such clothes. Spend money on clothes that are good quality rather than going behind changing trends.

6. Think about colours
If they're only two or three colours amongst your wardrobe , buy new clothes based on them. This will help you to mix and match your outfits. Always make sure you're buying something that goes with at least two other items in your wardrobe.

7. Go for online deals
One of the best ways to keep updated with the latest deals is by signing up for their newsletters. There are plenty of different voucher websites out there that come with discounts and promo codes for different products; it's always worth searching for your brand and getting the best deal.

8. Go for consignment stores
If you're on a low budget, you can look for clothes at consignment stores, or even your local thrift store. This will help you to look out for new looks while keeping control of your spending. It takes a little longer to find something you want but it's worth being patient. 

9. Learn sewing
Learning to sew is good because it means you can make small alterations to your clothes. You can start by doing little things like hemming trousers, and replacing buttons. If you find this interesting then there's plenty of things you can learn!

Hope you find the above-mentioned tips useful and manage to save some money next time you shop.

If you follow me on Twitter then you've probably noticed me literally counting down the days until my anomaly scan. The purpose of the anomaly scan is to find out whether there are any issues with your baby, but there is also a chance of finding out their gender, unless they're super naughty and keep their legs crossed. I've always wanted to find out the gender of our baby, as I like to be super organised (or at least try to be). The anomaly scan looks at your baby in a lot of detail, we saw everything from the kidneys to the toes, and the lining of the brain. Incredible. Thankfully, no issues were found & our little one is looking rather healthy! 

So.. I'm extremely happy and excited to tell you all that we're expecting a beautiful baby BOY!

Eeek.  From the day I found out I was pregnant, I thought I was having a boy.. even if the ring test was adamant that he's a girl! I just can't wait to get shopping and making the nursery perfect for him. I'm literally so in love already!
