I am someone that likes to sign up for a variety of store newsletters. That means that my inbox is typically filled to the MAX with MEGA SALE WARNINGS, but I rather get them all than none. Call me crazy. I know! Some of my favorites are Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic. I remember when Banana Republic was a store that felt like you were on a safari. I would have to drive to Forest Hills in Queens to walk through one of their stores because there wasn’t any one closer. I used to think it was the coolest thing. Khaki bases with natural prints. Muted tones – a brand that had a message. This girl from Astoria didn’t particularly want to dress like she was going to chase a white rhino, but I did appreciate the story. Even at 14, I loved fashion.
Today, Banana Republic is telling a very different tale. Their other brands have evolved as well. And to be honest with you… so have I. I now love to shop at all three clothing giants and can mix and match their styles with ease. It’s all about the highs and lows when you are building out a wardrobe. Can you tell my black jeggings were under $60 (PLUS AN ADDITIONAL 40% off TODAY) when I pair them with a Gucci belt? You can play around with different price points and still look like a million bucks! It’s all about how you style your wardrobe together.
Even my white pullover textured sweater – which is on sale today – is it designer or is it from the Gap? Does it matter because it works for me!? I love it. I feel great in it and to be honest with you, I love it so much more because I spent $36 on it! I mean – come on! An $80 sweater on sale for 50% off plus 10% off because I have a Gap card. MAJOR score. I will wear this sweater inside and out. (If you want a little color contrast, try this similar version from Loft.
I also just love a long beaded necklace because I feel like it adds the perfect touch to any look. Here’s another option that has more layers. I am someone that loves to add on necklaces – try throwing this one on as well. SO FAB!
Last but not least, don’t forget to have a little fun with your lipstick. When you are going neutral with your clothing, think about adding a pop with accessories or makeup color.
It’s so much fun to style a look while on the hunt for a great deal. In fact, that’s what this entire fashion section is all about. A typical woman’s budget – MY BUDGET. I don’t want to break the bank while getting ready for a Friday night out with friends. I just want to feel good with what I put together and know that I got the best deal possible while doing so.
