SAVVY SHOPPING

I've done and I'm doing some shopping following my approved shopping list and now I'm also in a deep declutter into my lingerie, I have a lot of socks with holes that need to say Goodbye, same story for some old panties and bra, so I replaced bra with 2 new (one nude and one white), so yesterday during my evening walking I've met a childhood friend we talked a lot about work, family,parent's Healt issues (we can talk a lot about this topic), low salary and then we started to talk about fashion, savings and money...so I said her that I'm trying to be more frugal this summer still having a great social life...I have a weekly budgeting day that I love and hate at the same time, but is in this moment that I track if I am doing a good work or I need to have shopping ban period (when you are savings is good to have shopping ban into a determined field and also for a short period)...

I still like fashion and shopping but being really focused on savings, planning expenses and also shopping is essential so when my friend asked what I've bought in the last weeks I replied doing a list, small to be true and almost every friends of mine started to think that isn't impossible to be more savvy and have a good social life....
Bought at H&M in December 2015

What I've bought in the past weeks? I spend determined monthly amount on fuel, mobile phone, magazines and I'm not adding in this shopping list grocery because is essential eat but I tend to keep a budget also here, because is possible eat well and low cost ...

In June
Some shopping in June
  • flat jeweled sandals
  • 2 turquoise t-shirts
  • 1 light blue maxi bag
  • 2 pair of earrings for ex colleague birthday
In July
best investment of July
  • 1 pair of black culotte pants
  • 1 strapless decorated tone on tone jumpsuit (thanks discount sales)
  • books (having used extra income from thrifty shop is been shopping without money that is so good)
  • a lovely dress for my daughter's friend birthday
  • a new bikini (black with cherries-thanks to discount sales)
I'm doing a deep declutter into my closet, infact I noticed that I tend to wear the same clothes, but I also noticed that I hadn't outfit for elegant event so to be prepared for incoming events that want a determined dress code, I've bought in the past months a long skirt and a jumpsuit that can became casual or elegant adding sparkling accessory, my rules before buy some new cloth is: IT can be mixed with wardrobe I already have? I can use it at least 4 times? How many hours I must to work to afford it? Usually I tend to wait at least 24 hours before to buy and I tend to donate clothes that I don't wear often every 3-4 months(new piece for 5 donated)....Honestly with this rules I spend money when is absolutely necessary and also if I fall in love for a clothes I became more conscious into my spending habits....

Which are your rules for shopping when you are on a budget?

JOB INTERVIEW OUTFIT: INSPIRATION FROM OLIVIA PALERMO & ELISA D'OSPINA

As I wrote some post ago first time I saw Olivia Palermo into "the city show" I found her nasty and posh but I always admitted that I loved (and I still like a lot) her outfits because she was ans still is always perfect... so if you have just received a phone call for job interview see her outfit searching inspiration (web will help you to find low cost similar clothes but on your budget so bankruptcy isn't an option)...










The other woman that I admire for her style is italian curvy model Elisa D'ospina, she is really beautiful woman and her outfits are perfect, because if you are curvy sometimes isn't so easy to find right outfit for you...

One thing that you must to do during job interview is smile, have a good voice (not too high/low volume/tone), not too much make up, clean hair and I suggest to study the agency so you'll be prepared on questions about their business and wear clean clothes, I can  remember that time that a friend of mine wore her favorite wh…

SANREMO SECONDA SERATA: PARLIAMO DI LOOK

Qest'anno ho deciso di guardarlo ma arrivo ad un certo punto ed il sonno vince però con rai replay vedo quello che mi sono persa e in alcuni casi devo dire meno male...
Iniziamo a parlare del look di Carlo Conti e la scelta migliore rispetto alla prima sera, oddio qualunque giacca scura sarebbe stata meglio di quella "da vecchio" della prima sera....comunque si inizia con le nuove proposte e lo devo dire ho una profonda invidia per i capelli di Marianne Mirage, che ha scelto un look molto bello ed elegante, la canzone è anche molto bella e secondo me avrà successo (e prima l'hanno passata in radio un paio di volte), Francesco Guasti e ok lo devo dire io ho un debole per gli uomini con la barbetta ma qui si esagera però il look non mi dispiace per niente e la canzone...si mi è piaciuta, gran bel timbro vocale il ragazzo, il terzo ad esibirsi è Braschi, giovane carino con la faccia da bravo ragazzo, canzone carina ed orecchiabile ma se devo dire se mi è piaciuta o meno,…
