The Look for Less: Chanel

The Look for Less: Chanel
Chanel's fall/winter 2013 collection contained these to die for chained boots, I've been lusting over them ever since I saw them. Last month June Ambrose released a very similar version in her HSN collection, I wanted them so bad but them came after I left for Paris. So if you've been looking for a cheaper version of the Chanel boots look no further.

What's The TREND? Utility Jumpsuit


Utility inspired jumpsuits are definitely in this season and you've probably seen them on most of the trendiest of celebs. Denim, silk you name it I'm sure there's a jumpsuit made of it, very versatile and comfortable. 

I recently purchased two jumpsuits. They weren't in the price range I wanted to pay but they will definitely earn their keep in my ever changing wardrobe. I purchased them both from Forever 21, one was denim and ran me about $63 and the other was a gray cotton version, which is still available online, for $40. Checkout the ones I found below.

Meet Frugal Shopaholic Desiree Bell

Name: 
Desiree Bell 

Where are you from?
Durham, NC
 

Explain your Instagram name.
@dezology
Dez: Short for Desiree
Ology: The study of a particular subject (the subject being me!)

Describe your personal style?
Whatever makes me feel good! :) I’ve recently gotten into sewing, which gives me the freedom to create different looks exactly the way I want. A lot of times I find myself browsing through different sites and I’ll see something I like, but I don’t like the price tag. If I really like it enough, I’ll figure out a way to make a cheaper version myself. I've been seeing a lot of Ankara lately and I wanted IN! I ordered some fabric from Etsy and put together these shorts.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
Mainly the fabric store, but outside of that I like ASOS, Forever 21 or any place with a good sale! 

What does being a "Frugal Shopaholic" mean to you?
Patience & planning! My coworker recently got me into couponing. I thought it was a granny hobby, but I was SO mistaken. I’ve learned so many neat couponing tips that have helped me save a ton of money. Yes, it can be a little time consuming, but the end result is worth it. Everything's gotta go on sale at some point, right?
This shopping trip was a success due to the use of rain checks, store sales and super doubles (coupons up to a $2 value are doubled in worth i.e. $2 turns into $4) and yes that's chicken over there to the left! 

What is a frugal shopaholic tip or trick that you can share with our readers?
Coupon Codes! I'm a big fan of ordering online. Before each purchase, I'll check the web for any applicable coupon codes to see if I can save a few pennies.  If you decide to get into grocery couponing, stay organized and visit these sites for all the coupon info you’ll ever need (they handle all the “dirty work” for you). www.southernsavers.com  or www.moolasavingmom.com Make your own sales with rain checks, they never expire! A rain check for a great sale price paired with a good coupon is always a winning situation. Long wait at the register? Instead of getting frustrated, use this time to hunt for a mobile coupon to use with your purchase. You’d be surprised at what you might find.
