Super model and mom Kate Moss designs affordable clothing for Top Shop.
Â Â Â It is that time of year again,Â when mothers spend nearly every waking moment inside of stores, malls or online shops in the hunt for great buys. Try taking these simple tips for saving on clothing and gifts this year…
Enjoy The Trends – If you are someone who loves trends but doesn’t want to spend a lot of money onÂ clothing (isn’t that all of us?), try checking online stores like Mandee Clothing. Sale items like the Color Block Ruffle Sleeve Dress or the Front Knot Maxi Dress (shown above), are exceptionally flattering on most post-partum figures. Try pairing them with a cropped bolero, long, thick cardigan or stylish boots for the winter. Better yet, try encouraging your friends or family to participate in the Mandee Style Star competition, which invites you to create your own look using their clothing, with a prize of $200 gift card. Sounds like fun to us!
- Get Cash Back – Try signing up for coupon loving websites like Fat Wallet.com, which helps you compare prices,Â find savings and get cash back when shopping through their website. You can even shop on Ebay (which presents tons of savingsÂ for savvy shoppers), while earning rewards along the way.
- Be Bold – We have heard about the famed Top Shop brand for yearsÂ (based out of England), with its cult like following and slew of affordable, one-of-a-kind pieces. Although the prices may still seem high to many of us budget mommas (dresses may average $15 to $50, for example), we are thrilled that Top Shop is hitting America (with a newÂ US website). Top Shop has so many varieties of clothing that we fear for fashion ADD: maternity clothes, celebrity created lines like Kate Moss for Top Shop, swimwear, shoes, and even items for Petite or Tall ladies. Take your pick (if you can decide, that is) and enjoy this European import.
