I am a 20-something female and I want to look better. I'm trying to drop 10-20 lbs. But clothes and skincare are super expensive and I'm not earning a lot of money. I want to look incredible 24/7, with or without makeup. What I need is the best deals (rock bottom & free) on:
clothes (workout, regular, or designer it doesn't matter)
anything that might make me look better
No, I'm not insecure I just want to look better I believe every one wants to.
Advice on putting outfits together, dealing with flaky skin, etc is all welcome as well
I can take awhile to build a new wardrobe...so I would just shop sales religiously. I have a Talbot's Outlet near me, and while I'm not in my 20's, I've been shopping there SINCE I was in my 20's. I do shop at their regular stores and while the sales at those stores are nice, the outlet sales are even better! I find their quality to be great, wonderful customer service etc They really have many great classic pieces for rock bottom prices. But it's one of those places, where you have to go fairly often, be prepared to dig thru racks etc
Can't help you with makeup...everyone is different. Just depends on what you're going for, what you like etc
As far as your skincare - do you exfoliate? That might help with the flakiness...and then be sure to moisturize.
Take a second and check out the book "The One Hundred" by Nina Garcia. It's literally a list and description of the 100 TIMELESS classic pieces every woman should have in their closet. Some are simple, like a great pair of jeans, while others are more "dream pieces". However it gives you a great starting point in looking for basics that will amp up your style. Look for quality pieces when they are on sale. A blazer can dress up everything from a shift dress for the office, to jeans and a t-shirt for daily wear. You don't need to buy an expensive strand of pearls, but throwing on a strand will dress up an otherwise casual or mundane outfit. It all has to do with what your taste is, but definitely definitely go shopping with a list or idea in mind!!!
Check Nordstroms Rack, Off 5th, Marshalls, Ross, etc. But just remember to really take the time to buy things that will last. New York and company is great for basics like sweaters, tops, and suits (especially if you are petite). Ann Taylor/Loft and Banana Republic also tend to have great classic tailored pieces, so check their sales and sale racks and you'll definitely walk away with winning pieces for your closet! Spending the extra $10 on a sweater may be worth it if it means that it won't pill as much, is better material, will last longer and look better!
For skincare, try Ulta. Not only do they have a ton of selection but their house brand of cosmetics are actually very good quality and very cheap!
