Your strong fashion sense doesn't mean you have to break your budget. You just have to be smart and invest in the right things.

Key Points:

  • There are two main ways to think about shopping: go super-cheap, or super-expensive.
  • For the expensive things in life, think of them as investment pieces – things you save up for that will last you for many years and you’ll take care of, like a nice jacket or pair of shoes.
  • For “non-investment” pieces that might be out of style in a season or two, always shop for sales. Be patient and wait for the deals.
