    Simple and Free Ways to Change up your Style

    I know that if I were a millionaire a large portion of that money would go on clothing. I just love everything about new clothes, the shopping experience, the deciding how to wear something new with stuff you already own, then wearing it for the first time. But for me the novelty of new clothing wears off really quicky, it’s not something I like because it means that I constantly want new which is obviously not affordable or attainable and it also means that a lot of my stuff doesn’t get worn properly.

    Fashion is my number one. I love clothes, I love shopping, I love looking at and feeling clothes, shoes and accessories, I always have. There are at least a hundred people walking around who think I gave them a dirty look and “upped and downed” them because I was looking at their outfit and they caught me in the act. My idea of fun or “doing something” is shopping, always. So I like to think I know a thing or two about all of our retailers and where to get what (well what works for me anyway). As much as I say my idea of fun is shopping, I don’t…
