Do you shop online? When I lived in Singapore, I shopped on eBay for gently used on-trend clothes that were within my budget and also my size. Then I discovered etsy and I not only bought a lot of vintage dresses but I started ordering custom-made ones – each dress would cost between US60 – 150. After that, I went through a clothes copying phase where I bought cheap and cute fabric from textile shops in Singapore then getting local tailors to replicate my favourite dresses. These days, I have little desire to go through all that trouble – partly because I’m now a housewife and I don’t have anywhere to go, partly because I feel like my money could be put elsewhere (like *koffkoff* the mortgage payments of our home). It doesn’t hurt that I now live in Las Vegas and we’re not far from the outlet malls… heehee..
