Having style doesn’t mean that you have to shop all the time and break the bank. True fashionistas learn how to shop like a fashion insider. Working in the industry means you learn tricks of the trade and those happen to be seasonal sales. These in store and online events bring the latest fashion at lower prices, leaving you money to keep up your lifestyle. You can create a high fashion look at fast fashion prices with the help of fashion insider tips that I am now sharing!
This entire outfit was actually purchased on sale and retails for around $200.This gorgeous sequins sweater from retails for less than $150 and looks like a million bucks! Grab this exact sweater here. These killer jeans were the last pair at an end of season sale for $20. They are sold out but you can get a similar pair here.

How was I able to pull this off? Keep reading and be blown away.
Be sure to shop sample sales, flash sales, end of season sales, and pop up shops, where the overhead is less and that means the mark up is even lower. What you’re really paying for when buying from your fancy brick and mortar stores is the rent and the light bill. Cut that down with seasonal shops or eliminate it all together online and you have yourself some savings. Some of my favorite outlets besides the one I work for are below!
