How to look fab without breaking the bank



Hi ya Ladies! Ever wondered how you can look absolutely fabulous and not be in debt? Check out these tips:

1) Online Shopping.
Ever heard of Asos? I swear I’m not being paid to market on their behalf but ever since I discovered this website, my life hasn’t been the same. They are always having these amazing sales! And you get discount off too. You get to shop from the comfort of your home. And once you don’t receive your stuff, they refund you. Need I say more?
2) Tailor made clothes.
Seen that must have dress on a celebrity on Bella Naija? No need to save up for years before being able to afford it! Just buy lovely fabrics and get a tailor to make the exact same for you. I know how crazy tailors can be with messing up your clothes and not keeping to schedule. But once you get one ghen ghen tailor, stick to him/her!
3) Recycling clothes.
Have you noticed how our generation never wears anything new? Save some amazing pieces from your wardrobe and watch them becoming in again in some couple of years. Do I hear anyone say ‘Antique’!
4) Mix and match.
I’m particularly a fan of mixing expensive pieces with some cheap ones. Raid Balogun market ladies! There are lovely inexpensive item you can mix with those your designer pieces to achieve that fab look. ;)
5) Accessories.
These can make your outfit. Invest in belts, earrings, rings and bracelets. They can make your outfit go from simple to outstanding in seconds.
6) Blazers.
You can never have too many of these. They give you that classy look. It can paired up with dresses,maxi/mini skirts,pants,shorts. Change from flats to pumps to achieve that formal to party look.
7) LBD.
This can be your Little Black Dress or Long Black Dress. Every lady needs this. It can be worn to work, parties, weddings and other formal occasions. Its effortlessly classy and on the plus side,it goes with anything and everything!
8) White Blouses.
You need one or two of this. Alternatively, you can have cream blouses. They are ultra feminine and pair it with a high waisted skirt or pants for that sultry school ma'am look. ;)
Keep looking fab ladies! Mwah!
I loved this post the first time I read it here last year. I still do! Her tips are apt for the regular girl who wants to look good on a budget. I once shopped at the online store, never got the items or a refund. I'm always scared of it not fitting or something + the items I love on it are expensive. Physical stores, it is, for me. I'm a huge fan of mix and match. It looks good, fits, not random and affordable? I don't care about the label. A big amen to tailor made clothes. Thank you Maryam for allowing me share your timeless piece here.

Really nice blog. Nice tips too.

I would like to know if asos delivers to home addreses in Ilorin.. Or do you receive your orders from the post office?

Thank you.

I didn't receive my order so I'm not sure. From what I gathered, one would receive a call from the post office before they bring it to you. You can also track your order so you can pick up when it arrives. The post office now charges 500naira
