The Secret Word is "Secret"
Holidays are a great time to experiment with fashion. It’s the Fourth of July wear stars, wear stripes, wear red, white and blue, heck wear a costume if you want but, whatever you wear do not break the bank when you buy it. Here’s how I find great style at great prices.
First, I do my research by finding the styles that I love. I attend fashion events, peruse fashion magazines, view the social media pages of undiscovered designers and well known fashion houses. I also check out blog posts of other fashion and style bloggers. When I find styles that I love, I look for those styles at lower prices. This is the easy part.
Stores like Target and Wal-Mart partner with well-known designers to create bridge lines, also known as diffusion lines. These are secondary lines of merchandise created by high-end fashion houses or designers that retail at lower prices. Bridge lines are usually slightly different from the designer’s signature line but, the difference in price is remarkable for the value you recieve.
I shop at discount stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Nordstrom’s Rack, Saks Off Fifth and Neiman’s Last Call. At these store you will find the authentic high-end and couture designs at deeply discounted prices. I also look at online boutiques. Some of my favorites are Naked Wardrobe, House of CB and Ricki Brazil. Here is where the real fashionista will find great basic pieces in all the colors of the season.
Those are my secrets. Oh and if you want to win the beautiful skirt in the photo above just follow our Instagram page, tag a friend and comment with the secret word. If you didn’t already find the secret word above it’s “Secret”.
