There are a few lies that we tell ourselves often. One is that desserts=the devil or an instant hundred pounds, and another is that in order to look good we need to sell our house and live out of our car. Sounds silly, right? That’s because it is. Dessert once in a while doesn’t mean that you’ve broken some unspoken rule, and you don’t need to shop on Rodeo Drive to look great. Here’s the one rule you should adhere to though, NEVER go in debt for fashion. If you do, you’ll end up resenting your clothes and your credit card bill. So what’s a girl to do? The answer? CONSIGN! You read that right, CONSIGN! Use the clothes that you don’t like, you don’t wear or that don’t fit and consign them. The profit from consigning your unwanted clothes can then be used to fund your fabulous new wardrobe. That ladies, is shopping smart and shopping smart will never be out of style.
