Refreshing Your Wardrobe (The Affordable Way)

I don't like to break the bank when refreshing my wardrobe, so there's two main ways I avoid splurging: thrift shopping, and keeping an eye out online for great deals. One of the shops I always keep an eye out for online is Tobi. I've snagged some fantastic deals on their site in the past (they often have 50% off sales), and I'm was always impressed when they arrived in the mail. This Tobi off-the-shoulder dress, for instance, was originally $78, but is actually 50% off right now (!!), at $39! For that price, I was really impressed by the quality. And aren't those bell sleeves and the front tie tassels so fun? Quick styling tip: I recommend using some fashion tape, on the front closure, just to ensure everything stays put.

I've always been a bit iffy on white dresses - I'm not going to lie. A big reason for that is I'm basically white as a ghost myself. It just doesn't seem that exciting to pair white with white - HA! But....after getting my very first sunless tan from Vita Liberata (more on that this Friday - stay tuned!), I was feeling even better about my decision to pick this Tobi off-the-shoulder dress! This has actually become my favourite new dress for the summer, and I'll likely be wearing it for Diner en Blanc this year as well!

My sandals are thrifted from Value Village - another way that I easily refresh my wardrobe without breaking the bank. I was in need of a wedge sandal that was low enough to walk in for longer distances. This pair was just worn in enough to be suuuuper comfy, but still in great looking condition. That's another reason why I love buying thrifted items: I feel like if that item has clearly stood the test of time until now, chances are it will hold up well after I buy it. It's a bit more reassuring honestly, compared to when I buy new. And at $5.99, they were a killer deal! If you need a couple new pairs of summer shoes, it's definitely worth checking out the aisles of your local thrift store first, before hitting the mall.
