I love fashion- i call myself as a fashionista since i always love to think latest and unique trendy clothings as well as accesories. However, i am also a type of person who likes to budget. I am not into expensive brand and ever there is a bargain i would prefer one. I think that really makes me more unique..lol This article is from Casey Lewis at About.com. I find it pretty informative so i decided to copy it here for any fashionista like me who wants to learn more about budgeting.
If you’re reluctant to pick up a fashion guide for fear of falling asleep, or worse -- feeling guilty about your overgrown closet -- this read will be a pleasant surprise.
Written like your favorite chick lit (that’s the fiction book genre, not the bubblegum), this guide is quick, witty, informative and most importantly, fun.
You will speed through this book at the same rate that you read Lauren Weisberger’s "The Devil Wears Prada," but with this handy handbook, you’ll gain knowledge to boot. You always knew Anna Wintour was a controlling diva, but did you know the equivalent of a women’s size 11/12 is a boys’ size 20? Didn’t think so.
Not only does "How to Be a Budget Fashionista" reveal tips and tricks for snagging high-end clothes on a low-end budget, but she also provides offbeat home-spa ideas in an entire chapter devoted to frugal beauty. Have you ever considered whisking up an egg and layering it on your face? Maybe not, but after this book you will. The egg, in addition to being delicious, is a great wrinkle reducer.
