What I’m Loving Right Now: Using What I Have!
The holidays are the season for parties, and if you don’t think ahead, you may get caught in a wardrobing situation as you try and rush out the door for one of your big events. It is important to think through your holiday attire before the day of a party or event.
Lots of clients start stressing about party attire as the holidays progress and purse strings become tighter. Instead of giving in to the urge to spend a small fortune on new holiday clothing, think about using what you already have. For example, I have a fabulous black cocktail dress with a sash. To make the old new again, I plan on tying the sash in a different way this season and pairing my dress with red pumps (instead of black) and wearing a fabulous red coat on top (instead of my black pashmina). Even though black is not one of my best colors, I don’t feel the need to buy anything new because I look great in red. I can make what I have work and save a bundle in the meantime.
What holiday attire do you have that can be reused in a new way? Think in terms of jewelry, shoes, and pashminas to change the look of something you may have had for a couple of years.
Another great budget saving option is to borrow clothes and accessories from your friends. Need a chunky gold necklace to make an outfit exceptional? Don’t run out to the department store to find it, ask a friend first. It is the holiday season, and what better way to get into the spirit than to share with friends.
