Frugal-nomics DIY: Tribal Print Trousers

25 October 2014

Okay, I’ve got a confession to make — I’ve never made a pair of trousers before in my life.  To be honest, I was a wee bit intimated by them; so I mostly stuck to dresses, skirts, and a few pairs of shorts here and there because I thought they were easier. But, I’m truly [...]

Spring is here (sort of) and we have been sloooooowly but surely starting to shed our winter layers, and attempting to reinvent our previous year’s fashion. But let’s just be honest — some of us really need a serious overhaul; but we just don’t have the budget to do it. A problem you say? Not anymore because, I have three easy and cheap solutions for getting more mileage out of your current wardrobe, check them out below.

A new and trendy look could be as close as a statement necklace away, but depending on where you look, some of your more opulent and drool-worthy pieces can run you well over $250. Who has that kind of dough to drop on just one piece? Not many. But there’s no need to get discouraged about your accessory makeover — here are three easy accessorizing tips for upgrading your statement jewelry to give you a whole new look — on a budget.

After all, patience is a virtue for a reason.
