Regina saves you money….

“You want to look fashionable and put-together, not like you hit every sale rack this season.”

Tommy Hilfiger

Ladies, I’m going to give you some tips (and stylecards) to find (and be selective about) great deals at high quality places without looking like you spend days at the freebie mall. 😉 As always, click on the pics for a clearer view in your browser.

LOOK #1: Vanessa

You know, being a fashioncita (my Spanglish word for fashionista) is fun but it can get expensive, even for the most budget conscious lindenaire. But that does not mean that you have to be limited to the freebie malls and places that scream sale or where everything is under 10L. Nothing’s wrong with that, but this post and future Bargain Queen posts will be about finding inexpensive high quality items. With a little research, you can look fabulous and still have $$ to spare.

My friends know me to be a heavy shopper, but I look for bargains, sales and I love good gifties, customer appreciation giveaways, designer fairs, etc. It was a no-brainer for this week’s post to be about dressing to the NINEs while saving your money ~~ not getting just any ol’ freebie but GOOD ones. This post will be the start of a series, where I’ll invite the memorable styling moments of women on the grid for you to see who are doing just that – finding GREAT bargains from high quality vendors where they SHOP. While it’s great getting free things, it’s REALLY important to support designers for helping you look your pixelated best. YaY 🙂

So, why not support those stores you frequent the most? For one, you already know their quality….so why not support them? Often times, joining store groups gives you exclusive information about special sales and sometimes, private, time-sensitive sales. Discounts and deals abound in Second Life, but not everyone knows about them, so here are some ways I’ve found them at the places I shop at. Please note: The items featured in ALL three looks were acquired through group gifts, fairs (accessory fair, hair fair, etc.), or special sales (55L-60L weekend sales, etc.). You’ve seen two shots of Look #1, here’s your stylecard….some may still be available, some not, but at least you’ll know how to look for future deals like these. Feedback welcome 😉 Happy shopping, girlies ~~~~~~~~~
