How many people in spite of having no money to fund their habit buying the latest designer gear still make a purchase regardless? How many people copy their favourite pop singer in the way they dress because they are fashionable? How many have cried a bucket of tears due to a weight problem where chic designs make you look hideous.
How many of you have taken drastic measures to lose weight because you want to look like those models that strut the catwalk. All four queries above are proven problem causers preventing fashion endeavours to be pleasant ones. What is the point of wearing trendy outfits if it leaves you in debt? If you imitate an idol then remember they have a bank balance making fashion affordable. An overweight issue can be addressed and remedied and should an eating disorder develop in those wanting a figure like the matchstick men painted by Lowry, then you will need medical help.
If you fall into the category where you just have to have the new dress in the boutique window, fine, but cutback on other unnecessary necessities which you see as necessary. Before splashing the cash on a designer label frock check other department stores, you may bet the exact design of dress is in stock at half the price minus the designer tag. Why pay through the nose for a label that is more often than not hidden or cut off. Never use store cards because high interest rates will have that dress double in price. Avoid extra costs by asking a friend or family member for a loan to make the purchase. Set a limit to what you spend on a day out shopping and only take that fixed amount, this way you can not overspend.
Leave credit cards at home; if you can not afford to pay cash then you can not afford it all. Great savings can be made if you make the clothing your self. Fashion magazines have fabulous ideas and include valuable advice on how to dress to impress. Dressmaking is not as difficult as you think, you will be surprised how easy it is and not forgetting the sense of achievement in wearing one of your own creations that did not cost an arm and a leg. If you want to spend your money wisely then a needle and cotton along with dress making patterns will keep you in with fashion.
