Satin Tie Neck + Shopping Tips

I am definitely going to be transitioning my satin pieces into the spring with light wash jeans and booties. I think I could even wear this top with some cutoffs. This top is from Forever 21, but I think it's super unique and looks higher quality. I tend to get a lot of my tops from less expensive brands such as Forever 21 and invest more in things like jeans, accessories, and shoes. The past year or so,  I have become way smarter of a shopper. I rarely buy things full price and when I do I have to really love it. I also think my style has changed a bit the past year and I am buying things that I really LOVE versus just buying stuff to have new clothes. Here are some of the shopping tips I try to remember when adding pieces to my closet.

1) Make sure it fits properly.

We have all done this. Bought something because we are in love with it, only to let it sit in your closet because it's not actually the right size? I am guilty of this! Make sure your clothing fits you and is flattering to your body type or chances are you aren't going to wear it and it was really just a waste of money.

2) Spend more on the things that will last.

I have learned my lesson big time here. Don't get cheap with shoes, bags, jeans, or jewelry because chances are it won't last. I'm not gonna lie and say I never buy cheap stuff, but I tend to spend more on these items and less on trendier tops or the occasional dress. It's good to have a variety of items in your closet, which I think means mixing inexpensive with expensive to create a look.

3) Shop the sale racks.

I can't tell you how many times I have had my eye on something and almost pulled the trigger on it while its full price only for it to go on sale. I rarely buy things full price because of this. Places like Revolve, Nordstrom, and Shopbop always have really good sale sections with some really good deals on bigger designers.

4) When buying something, consider items already in your closet.

Do you really need another black top? (Me always). Do you have stuff that you can wear it with? If you can only wear it one or two times, it's not worth putting in your closet.

5) Want new stuff, but have no money?

POSHMARK is liiiiife. I am constantly selling my old stuff to buy new. It's a great way to clean our your closet and have the funds to add some new pieces to your wardrobe without feeling so guilty.
