My Manilla Fashion Makeover Feature

By  | 

I get great joy out of sharing tips on how to shop on a budget.  I feel like a great thing to remember when you have limited funds is that, you should aim to invest in closet staples that can be worn countless times, in a variety of different ways — that way you get a lot of mileage out of each and every piece you purchase. Think of it like this….you won’t have a bunch of odds and ends that only go with one look, if when you are looking to buy something, you think to yourself “can I think of at least 3 outfits I can wear this with right now?”

So because of my love of sharing frugal style advice, I was oh so glad when the folks over at Manilla asked me to be a part of their #GetItTogether series and do a Fashion Makeover Video for a very deserving young lady named, Kate.

I’m ecstatic with how it turned out, and can’t wait for you to see it.  Want to see the one piece we got for her that was used interchangeably throughout the 3 looks?  Check out the video on Youtube here.
