Fabuless Styling On A Budget Recap

Hey Bunnies!

As you all know, this past Sunday, July 20th I attended The Fabuless Styling On A Budget Event hosted by The Styling Firm. They had everything from drinks and cocktails to shopping, styling and makeup tutorials. It was a very small group of people who attended which made it very intimate and easy to network. There were several vendors including

RB Creations

Jai Simone Boutique
Nubian Hair Oasis

Jolie Bloom

V For Vadge

First Lady Brooches

The evening started out with Mary And Katie of Twin Vogue. 
Mary's in Polka Dot and Katie is in Floral ;)

Here are there 10 commandments of shopping on budget
1.Know your budget
2.Do your research
3.Be a mindful
4.Find out your favorite stores' cycle
5.Shop at the end of the season
6.Go shopping on a Thursday
7.Don't forget to sign up for an email list
8.Don't be afraid of the thrift store
9.Be careful of who you make your shopping buddy
10.Go to the back of the store
