You can tell a lot about a person by what they wear and how they wear it, including their personality and social status. If you want to be successful, it is crucial that you should feel and look successful; only then will opportunities come to you. Now, we all would love to be rich and be able to eat out everyday, visit exotic places every month, drive fancy cars, wear expensive watches and designer clothes.
The truth is that, unless you own a gold mine, it might take you years, maybe decades to save enough money to live like a celebrity, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as looking for bargains can be fun and more rewarding than just buying anything you desire whenever you want. You probably have a monthly budget for clothes, shoes, handbags, sunglasses and other accessories you must stay within, but that doesn’t mean that you can not dress and accessorise like a celebrity.
After all, who said that expensive boutiques and stores and the only places where you can find designer clothes and fancy accessories? Keep in mind the following tips and you will learn how to look rich and successful without emptying your wallet.
Auction websites like eBay and virtual outlets like Net-a-porter offer up to 90% off on hundreds of clothes and accessories by Emilio Pucci, Vera Weng, Helene Barman, Vanessa Bruno, Donna Karan and other famous designers. If you are into French fashion, then you should definitely take a look at Vente-Privee, an exclusive French website which you can join only if another member introduces you,just like an exclusive private club.
The good news is that the site has been recently launched in the United Kingdom and has not yet become popular, so, unlike French costumers, you won’t have to pay to become a member. Just so you know, beautiful women’s, men’s and unisex Paco Rabanne watches are being sold for £ 65.00 as we speak. BrandAlley offers some great discounts on designer clothes and accessories as well but requires new users to register as members in order to view their items for sale.

Collect vintage clothes
There are many shops selling vintage-inspired clothes not all in the United Kingdom, but also in Europe and the United States, where you may find lots of affordable designer clothes. Remember that vintage clothing is always fashionable so if you find a second-hand Chanel jacket for £ 30.00 but are afraid your colleagues might laugh at you if you wear it to work, buy it! All you have to do to emphasise that once trendy garment is match it with a pair of skinny jeans and a plain t-shirt and complete your look with a nice necklace, a belt, a few bracelets and a nice pair of earrings.
Charity shops are underestimated caves of wonders where you may find designer clothes and accessories for as low as £ 1. Oxfam shops are literally raided by both men and women on a daily basis, so you might want to look for less popular charity shops in posh areas where wealthy people and shopaholics get rid of some of their designer clothes every now and then hoping that God will appreciate their generosity and forgive their sins.
