I am a Virtual Assistant by profession but I sing for passion. As a singer and a performer, I constantly need new outfits so that I won’t have to wear the same set of dresses every gig. Since I was not born with a trust fund , I have to be smart in choosing what to wear without having to spend a lot and without looking cheap. Here’s a picture of my outfit from a gig last Saturday.
Believe me or not, this outfit cost me 500 pesos. Bought the gladiator shoes for 150 pesos, dress for 250, ancient bracelet for 20 and earrings for 15 pesos. Impossible? Of course not! How did I ever get these things for such a cheap price?
FOLLOW MY 3 RULES TO LOOKING GORGY AND NOT TRASHY:
Rule #1: Take advantage of Facebook Online Sellers.
It was not easy to find one. I have my share of buying stuff from online sellers and ended up disappointed because fabric was either cheap or it doesn’t have the right fit. Returning it would only make me upset because of the shipping fee and having to deal with the online sellers. I learned my lesson well.
TIPS ON BUYING FROM AN ONLINE SELLER
- Make sure that the online seller answer your questions and gives you the exact measurements of the dresses. If they don’t respond with enthusiasm, don’t trust that seller. Move on to the next one with nice collections and read the first sentence of this first tip again and then do the same thing until you find the one who answer your questions.
- As much as you can, AVOID SELLERS that are not in your area. Why? Because you have to pay the damn shipping fee! Shipping fees are what? 80-100 pesos. That could already buy you a really nice blouse!
- This does not apply to every online seller because I’m an avid fan of Kim’s Closet for almost three years now BUT, I would suggest finding an online seller who use their own profile for posting their collections. OR, posting their pictures on their pages. I judge them by their looks. No matter how rude that sounds, I do that. If a seller is pretty, then she has to have a good taste most probably! If the seller is not, well.. go figure. Lol.
- I followed these tips that’s why I got that 250 peso gorg dress. So believe me. HAHAHA!
