How to Afford Designer Fashion for Your Wardrobe

13 December 2016

FWRD Dec Sale 25% off

OK ok. I’m not exactly the embodiment of designer living and fashion haha! But I do like to mix up my wardrobe with a few designer items.

A couple of years ago, I decided that I wanted some high-quality, timeless designer pieces that would last me years.

Personally, I’m not rolling in money; we have a mortgage, we have 3 kids, we live off 1.5 incomes. But we’re comfortable, we live a fairly simple life, we love simple pleasures, we save money.

And what is life, if you don’t get to spend a little proportion of your savings on what brings you a bit of joy?

Overseas holidays, fun experiences with the kids, a car upgrade, new gadgets, music concerts, furniture, gym membership, designer fashion… each to their own, right?

So how does one start? How does one afford it?

The short answer:

1) Know what you want. Make a list.
2) Budget and have a separate savings kitty.
3) Ebay is your friend.
4) Keep track of sales from designer boutiques.

I bought my first series of $300+ items from Forward by Elyse Walker (FWRD). Not sponsored, not gifted.

I knew what I wanted, I had saved for it and the item came up on sale. I liked shopping from Forward, because the sales were – quite frankly – UNBELIEVABLE.

 

FWRD Dec Sale 25% off

I bought my Alexander Wang Heels at 60% off, Acne Studios Pumps at 50% off and my Isabel Marant Silk Blouse at 60% off.

I wear them ALL the time. It’s been two years and I’m still super happy I have them in my wardrobe. I’m hoping to get 10+ years from them.

Anyway now, as it turns out… I’m working with FWRD and pleased to let you know about a FWRD Sale Event for Australian residents only.

From 13 – 15 December (3 days only) you can get up to 25% off the entire site by using the code “GIFTFWRD” at the checkout.
