WWW: Shopping on a Dime

Shopping on a dime is easy to do especially when you’re shopping at Target

I just love Target’s WhoWhatWear Collection so much that I’m giving Target my money once a week. I’ve already done a post wearing one of their skirts from their collection and I’m back at it again like I never left. I love shopping on a dime and this collections allows me to do so and still have money for food afterwards. Don’t get me wrong, I love a great expensive piece but right now, I can’t afford to have every item of clothing be Chanel or YSL. So, I love to mix one high-end piece with some reasonably priced pieces. This look and this post is about looking good while shopping on a dime, and I want to show you ways to reinvent pieces and stretch your wardrobe and wallet a bit further.

When my fellow fashion blogger Flyygirlfashions asked to collaborate with me on a holiday look, I knew I wanted to incorporate the Whowhatwear collection from Target. The motto of this collection is to sell street-trendy clothes without your wallet paying for it months later. They have an array of gorgeous items including plus-size clothing. I ran to my local target and picked up a trendy ruffle top blouse and their women’s tie skirt. I put a gorgeous red Calvin Klein blazer dress over the look and finished it off with black tube socks and a patent leather two-tone booties. The two pieces from the Whowhatwear collection cost me under $40.00 and the good thing is I can always mix and match the pieces with other items in my closet. I told you looking good and shopping on a dime can actually have you looking like a trillion dollars.

My one rule for shopping on a dime is to always buy items that you can see yourself mixing with other items in your closet. Shopping on a dime will have learning how to reinvent every single thing in your closet (LOL). As a blogger, I don’t have money to waste on clothes every single shoot so I improvise and think of new ways to use what I already have. Like I said before, this overcoat is actually a dress that I was able to reuse in a different way. These two pieces from Target’s Whowhatwear collection are awesome because I can reuse them over and over again with other pieces from my collection. I plan on using the ruffle blouse as an undershirt on a pair of overalls that I just bought and the skirt will be reworn with a black turtleneck and thigh-high boots. So, remember to buy pieces you can see yourself wearing more than one way.

Shopping on a dime is a win-win because you save money and you look good and what kind of person wouldn’t like those odds? Take time out and visit Target to take a look at their Whowhatwear collection today.

I love the way that Flyygirlfashions styled her Whowhatwear Frock coat with a pair of crushed velvet boots, plum pants, black turtleneck and a wide-brim hat. Her look is elevated street chic and I love the play of different colors and textures. Check her out on Instagram at Flyygirlfashions
