Hi, I'm Erin and I'm a fashion stylist. So, you're on a limited budget but you still want to spice up your style. No worries.There are so many ways you can dress up your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Our model, Heather is wearing a simple black dress. Now a black dress is something most of us already have in our closet. So, it's a good place to start. you can easily reinvent your black dress or most anything in your closet with accessories. Let me show you what I mean. Here's a red waist belt that was under twenty bucks. I throw this around the dress and create instant curves. The color also really pops against the black. So, belts are always one inexpensive option. Another idea is costume jewelry. It is everywhere and it can be very inexpensive. Try a statement necklace or some stand out chandelier earrings. Both pieces on their own can make an outfit. Our model is wearing a fab pair of great quality gold earrings that I just picked up for thirty bucks. Another simple way to add some more pizazz to your wardrobe, shoes. Look, I love a Christian Louboutin just like the next girl. But who can afford nine hundred bucks for heels? You can find gorgeous and expensive looking shoes everywhere from DSW to Target, even PayLess. Our model's black pumps are from DSW. They were 60 dollars. And don't forget about outlet stores and consignment shops. Some of the best and most treasured pieces in my closet are from consignment shops. With a little patience and focus, you will no doubt come home with some fab finds. Our model is wearing a perfect example. It's a silk sheath by Theory I bought at a consignment shop eight years ago for forty dollars and it's still kicking around.
