Ask Bree: How Do I Stop Spending So Much $$$ on Shopping?

Q: How do I stop spending so much money on clothing?

A: Shopping is every girl's vice! I mean, c'mon, how do you expect us to walk away from a great sale? Well the key is getting creative with the clothes that you already have. Here are a few tips:

Shorten the hemline to an old skirt- make old skirts and skirts that hang at weird lengths fresh again! All you need is a pair of scissors and a sewing machine (or a friend who is willing to do this for you!)

Turn an old t- shirt into a cute fringe shirt! Pair it with some cute shorts for summer!

Crop that top!
Don't like the look of fringes? Try making your own crop top with a t-shirt that you haven't worn in a while.

You'd be surprise how many outfits you can come up with just buy utilizing a few key accessories! Check out the Little Black Dress Experiment for some inspiration. Maybe you could do your own experiment ;)

If all else fails, check out the Great Deal Alerts that I will be posting periodically so that you won't miss cool sales ;)

Hope this helps!
