HOW TO BE STYLISH WHEN YOU'RE BROKE! // 5TIPS





HELLO MY FASHIONISTA's
Life is getting stressful and mooore stressful, 
I feel the only way to get my mind off of things is to actually become more active on my blog,
it let's me, to be free and do what I want~ it's my own world!
AND I HOPE TO BRING YOU GUYS 
MORE GREAT POSTS AND MORE INTERESTING UPDATES MORE OFTEN!!

As well as the need to update on my instagram and tumblr;
 my so-call art/fashion blog is being lost, defiantly will be reviving it~ 
along with my drawings!

on with the actual post,




How do you become stylish? but, when you're on a budget?
being a student and from a family that doesn't earn ALOT OF MONEY~ *sighs
it's hard for me to ask my mum to buy me things daily especially hard; when growing she would be the type of mum, who buys me things until my shoes were worn and torn, or even coats that would be a size bigger for me to grow into. 

There's nothing wrong with not having a lot of clothes, in my defense if you don't have the money, BE A CONSCIOUS SHOPPER!! ask yourself do you really need it ... just because you see other people wearing doesn't mean you need it.
 I'm here to show you my tips and ticks to becoming the next fashionista
on a budget, of course.


TIP 1
MAKE WISE CHOICES // DON'T BUY IT IF YOU DON'T NEED IT
ONLY INVEST IN QUALITY

I'm a keen fashion student from such a young age, however my wardrobe was always limited and the only things that I get are mostly hand me down from my aunt's and mum's wardrobe, and to me there's nothing wrong with it.
I love it!! why?
 It's because they are meaningful; from my grandma's clothes to my dad's and even my mum. 

When I go shopping, I actually hardly shop or buy anything. I tend to get annoyed at the fact that I can't seem to find anything in my size. xD But I'm not a everyday shopper LOL I dread it. which is funny.Though, it's mainly why you don't see me do any/ hardly any hauls on my blog,
because there's nothing to show or maybe here and there I save up and buy one piece or a few quality items; such as my two new addition to the family .... amazing coat's / jackets but it's raree~

I don't follow trends, and I don't feel the need to unless it's something that is unnecessary for me..
because I'm all about comfort!!
If you don't feel good or comfortable wearing it, why are you wearing it in the first place,
don't do it for attention or just because someone told you too,
because it's your body!
if you want to wear no bras, do it! if you want to wear a skirt in winter, do it!


TIP 2
STYLE AND ACCESSORIZE

You wouldn't think about it, but it makes a huge difference.
You wouldn't realize or even notice until it's pointed out, that fashion isn't just what we wear but it's also the things we put on us.
Piercings
Makeup
Tattoos
and even Hair, it all plays apart.
just by changing up your makeup or even your hair you wouldn't need to constantly feel the need to buy things more and more. (I'm really encouraged to do a post for you guys to show you the difference it can make - in fact be, looking forward to mooore how to style posts)




TIP 3
ESSENTIAL STAPLES / IN MINIMAL COLOURS

This is a simple way to incorporate basics essentials; from tees and skinnyjeans, with a
 wardrobe that's sure to be stylish all year round. Colours has a huge impact, if your not confident wear colours I suggest wearing monochrome or minimal aka kim kadashian style clothing xD
it works even if you don't or do and I certainly DON'T LIKE HER WHAT SO EVER!!
sorry if you do~ 
staying neutral or dark with; dark greens, reds, browns, oranges, purples, mustard yellow
black and white and so on......
 is great to wear daily 
and easy to style 


TIP 4
BE CREATIVE AND D.I.Y


for all you creative cats, lol - a great way to jazz up or personalize your own 
clothing / bring life in to your old pieces is to, do D.I.Ys; from distressed to dyed and even sewing accents of zips on, studs, sequins,
the ideas are endless.



TIP 5 
SHOP OFF SEASONS & SHOP IN SALES

Nothing is wrong with it, being prepped and trying to get a bargain. Isn't it something  
we all want. :D You defiantly get great deals, also your local charity shops // thrift shops are another way of finding great items for less.




Hope this was a helpful post~ :)
I've been so active lately, need to keep it up lol
please do comment down below what you would like to see me post?

HIDDEN FASHION | GO CHECK YOUR OWN WARDROBE!

HEEEY! my fashionista's~ 
Inspired by me stealing peoples clothes~ lol 
I've been taking my families discarded or unused clothing foooor suuuch a time, it's funny because I didn't realise until someone asked me,
where did I get my clothes from?
What's my style? Do I follow trends?
and so,
this post is called the hidden fashion because how many of us forget what's in our wardrobe and don't realises what's in our wardrobe? 
.....
not a lot, but we always seem to be buying and spending a crazy amount of money on things,
do we really need them?



My Aunt's been cleaning out her wardrobe and has been giving away clothes 
which she doesn't want any more, things she's bought but haven't  worn. 

it's crazy because it still has the tag on~

Love getting clothes
and especially when they are from my family (free) its a bonus!  (hehe)
I'm not a person who follows trends, (but it's hard not to because our society is built on trends and the things we buy have some sort of trend in it.)
I'm Just a person who loves to style clothes she has already.
spending is hard for me, I'm a student 16 to be exact and I don't exactly make the craziest amount of money.
Strangely enough I don't go shopping a lot, its mad,
 crazyy~ even (so I get told by people)
You see so many youtubers and bloggers
constantly buying something every month. 
haul? month? what? :O

 I just don't have the money to do that and I don't think it's necessary.
(lol that's maonly why I don't have much haul posts)

IT'S CRAZZY!
Fashion bloggers 
I feel are being lead by fancy brands and big names~ 
wealth, status it all adds up,
but you can still look like superstar without the price.

I often wear, recycle and re-style clothes which my mum doesn't often wear,
 so from her old vintage to her current clothes; though she hates it, because she tells me, she will wear them but in fact she just leaves in the wardrobe.
My mum is the type of person who buys and keeps it all locked up, (calling it safe and for certain special occasion) my aunt is another person who most often goes shopping and buys clothes (I call her a shopping  addict xD) I have another aunt who doesn't often go shopping but with the things she does buy, she keeps it in her wardrobe also... She doesn't realise what she has until she started to cleans it out.

My littler brother to my older brother, if they don't want it, I'll have it :D

I think we do it all the time!! 
forget what we buy, every season or when a trend pops up we
 often seem to be buying more and more but don't realise what we already have. 

seeing our idols and all these models with such fancy clothes makes us want them.
...

it's about time we check our own wardrobes.

It's funny because it's hard to restrain ourself from buying 
because we always seem to be wanting something or not have it, 
However I'm here to tell you it's not the case, I love fashion but I hardly go shopping in fact, 
I find myself disliking it; mainly, because the clothes seem to come out with trends, trends which I don't really seem to like or see myself buying so I end up not getting anything.
 I'm a person who focuses on staples, comfort. 
practicality
The models which advertise it are sooo pretty and soooo tall~
 its makes a huge difference when your someone not so tall and the dilemma is you like that item, BUT when you wear it, it looks like a maxi when its a mini skirt. 

 LOL~ does anyone get that?

If your finding it hard  to know what you have in your wardrobe, I recommend you to download the stylebook app
 it helps to reminds you what's in your wardrobe
and since it's on the go and its always with you, helping you with your shopping and asking yourself that, all important question do you really need it? and if you have something similar already in your wardrobe.

I'm not sure what to call this post~ :) 

sooo on to the things which my aunt has given to me,

A KIMONO
lol this is my first, I honestly wouldn't buy it in the shops if I had the choice to; but I guess this is also one of the positive things about sharing clothes or swapping them, you get to try new things out.
You never know you might even like it.
The kimono for me is a mmmmm.... narhhh~ I don't like it mainly because its just a cheap and is also racial appropriating the real Japanese kimonos which are so much more amazing, beautiful and aren't made of cheap polyester.

though we aren't the same size, which isn't a problem for me.
 I love wearing things oversized  rather than fitted (it's not a problem) and in most cases the clothes could always get adjusted.

Thing to take away from this post is... 
go and raid your Aunt, uncle, mum, dad, gran, grandad, sister, brother's
WARDROBE~ 
Sharing is caring after all :D xx

Hope you enjoyed the post
