What do you blog about?
Looking Sharp is my personal fashion blog dedicated to bringing the Pittsburgh fashion and shopping scene to life, as well as documenting my fabulous journey through discovering fashion.
What are some ways you save money?
When it comes to shopping, I try to save money a couple of ways:
- I only go shopping when I “need.” I started keeping a journal in my purse of wardrobe items I needed- usually staples that will allow for fversital outfits. Every time I find myself at the mall or in a store, I try to stick to this list, though I do find myself wondering off of it if a good sale comes around. Writing the list does make me second guess myself when I want to purchase something I don’t need. In the end, I usually end up putting that shirt or accessory down and focusing on my list. Usually.
- I’m always armed with coupons. When I started signing up for emails from stores that I love (Ann Taylor LOFT, for example), I started receiving coupons via email that are usually good for in store and online purchase.
What kinds of products most interest you?
I’m mostly interested in accessories and jackets at the moment. With fall approaching, I want to add a coupel more coats to my wardrobe, as well as accessories- like broaches and pins/belts- to accent my fall and winter coats. Being in Pittsburgh, I often find myself in a coat for a majority of the year and one way I have found to dress up my coats is with accessories.
What are the 3 main products you CAN’T live without?
I can’t live without bobby pins, trouser jeans and cardigans.
What is your favorite store for saving money?
My favorite store for saving money is Marshalls. My friend Mandy got me hooked and I am surprised how much of the current trends/pieces by designers they have in the stores. I can always find something when I’m there.
Where do you shop for bargains online?
I’m not a big online shopper, but I do frequent some of my favorite stores online- Ann Taylor Loft, Gap, Banana Republic, etc. I usually receive sale coupons from these stores via email and they usually offer some sort of shipping discount or even free shipping.
Tell us about the best deal you’ve ever scored on a product.
Once of the best deals I ever got was a blue cocktail dress from Macys for 10 dollars. I don’t remember the original price, but it was the perfect dress for dressy holiday party I was going to. I love that dress and still wear it often.
*this was a hard question because often when I see something I am immediately in love with I purchase it. I know that if I don’t, I won”t stop thinking about it and become mad at myself. This has happen to often than not, so I just started purchasing the things I REALLY LOVE, not just like.
