You deserve to look beautiful. You also deserve to feel great and confident in every single clothing item that you wear. Of course, the problem with that is fashion comes at a price. You usually have to pay hundreds to get any big-name brands. What a lot of people don’t realise however, is that you can actually get great clothing and at an affordable price, if you know where to look for it!
Second-hand clothing is ideal because it means that you can really take advantage of great styles without having to worry about the price tag. Feel free to shop around and take a look at what is available, there has never been a better time and there are bargains to be had by all!
Red Wine Spillage?
Have you ever spilt red wine on any of your clothing? If you have then you probably know how
annoying it is. You’re out in the best clothes that money can buy and someone trips and spills red wine all over the table and all over your white cashmere jumper. There’s nothing worse, but if you want a quick tip then use white wine to remove it. Works a charm and you don’t have to go out and buy a new one.
Angora and Mohair Shedding
A lot of people love the feel of angora or even mohair clothing. The problem is that it tends to shed and when it does, you may feel the need to throw it in the bin and buy a new one because you look like a Yeti. If you want to stop this from happening while also saving yourself money then fold the garment and put it in some type of zip-lock bag. Freeze it for three hours or more and before you know it, you’ll have an angora or mohair jumper that doesn’t shed at all!
Vintage clothing is ideal if you want to step out and show the world what you’re really made of. The problem with it is that it often comes with some old or musky odour that can’t be removed. If you want to shop for vintage clothing without having to worry about the odour then consider spritzing it with a mixture of 1 part vodka and 2 parts water. This will remove any odour regardless of how old it is, and it is a great way for you to pick up those bargains without worrying about the smell. Did you also know that you can get a vintage hairstyle by plumping up fine hair with a hair volumizer? It’s great if you want to go for that Cyndi Lauper/Madonna-inspired look!
Don’t always go for expensive cashmere. It might not always be the best quality. If you want to get the best bang for your buck, do this little trick. All you have to do is pull down on the cashmere garment, if it snaps back then it is well worth the money. If it doesn’t, put it back on the rail and keep on searching. Even the best brands don’t always offer the highest quality garments, so don’t always focus on that and save those pennies.
