My Seasonably Chic Secret … Shop Smart! When heads turn and comments fly I know that I have succeeded! The secret is to wait until your favorite department store has the ultimate sale end of season. I shop October for spring/summer – May is for fall/winter. Last October I came with a $1,200+ wardrobe for $110. It was the best shopping experience and time ever! Top names ( original $200 outfit ) for $9.00 or less. When you can shop end of seaon … the best feeling ever! The best decision that I ever made for shopping … the wait is worth it! I never pay full dollar for anything … anymore. Shop smart … it’s life changing!
