Ways to Save Money on Your Femme Wardrobe

 In case you haven’t noticed, being a girl gets expensive – especially if you love to shop as much as I do!

It’s even worse if you have to maintain two separate wardrobes (one for your femme self and one for your guy self).

So how can you be feminine and fashionable – WITHOUT going broke?

Here are my top 5 ways to build a femme wardrobe on a budget:

1. Shop at Consignment Stores

While you can find cheap clothes galore at thrift stores like the Salvation Army or Goodwill, it means sifting through racks of ugly, decades-old clothes.

Instead, I suggest shopping at consignment stores. Consignment stores also offer second-hand clothing, but they are much more choosy about what they offer.

It’s a great way to find fashionable (often designer) clothes for a fraction of the original price.

2. Save Big During Sales

I LOVE a good sale – and I’m sure you do too. The trick is to know when to shop to get the best deals.

Retailers usually offer their best sales at specific times of year, including:

  • Major holidays like Labor Day, Mother’s Day, or the 4th of July
  • After Christmas
  • The end of summer

Many stores also have their own schedule for semi-annual sales. For example, Victoria’s Secret holds their Semi-Annual Sale in the winter and summer. Get on your favorite stores’ email lists to be notified of sales.

3. Shop the Outlets

Outlet stores like TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshalls, and Kohls are great places to find bargains year round.

Here are my favorite online outlets: and carry plus size clothing and large-size women’s shoes, so they’re a great option for bigger girls.

4. Stop Wasting Money on Things You Don’t Wear

Spending money on things you’ll later regret is the ultimate waste.

My rule is not to buy anything (no matter how cheap) unless it:

  • Fits perfectly
  • Is the right color
  • Works with at least 2 outfits you already own
  • Is returnable

I like to wait a week to cut the tags off any clothes I purchase so I can make up my mind slowly and still be able to return things later.

5. Know When to Save and When to Splurge

While it’s important to save money, some things worth investing in include:

  • Silicon breast forms
  • A high quality wig
  • Good foundation and concealer

These items can make or break your feminine image, so purchase the best quality you can afford.

Then look for bargains when it comes to things like: trendy fashion pieces, eye shadow, nail polish, panties, etc.
