Keep An Eye Out on Fall Fashion Sales on Labor Day
Fall fashion calls for lots of chunky sweaters, high boots and scarves. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to afford a whole new fall wardrobe when the holidays are so close by, you're starting school or you're trying to buy clothing for multiple children for the school year. Thanks to the variety of Labor Day sales available every single year, it's never been easier to afford fall fashion.

When to Look for Sales

The best time to look for sales is Labor Day weekend. This is when a good majority of stores hold most of their clothing sales and price down a good bit of the items they have available. Keep in mind that a lot of stores are also one season ahead when it comes to fashion, so when fall finally comes around, most stores are gearing up for winter and have winter wear out on the shelves and racks. Because of this, Labor Day offers consumers a way to save on fall and winter-type clothing without the heavy price tag of buying it when it's not on sale.

Where to Find Great Offers

You can find these great offers virtually anywhere that sells fall fashion. Most people do their shopping locally, which allows them to try on and buy what they like before committing to anything. Others like to do their shopping online, especially if they know their size well and have already made use of a specific store and know how the clothing fits them. This is especially beneficial for those who are buying clothing for kids and who already know their sizes. You can scour a range of different shops online, compare prices and sales and then make your decision on where you'd like to buy your items.

What to Buy

When it comes to the autumn time, you want to look for a range of different garments that won't just keep you warm, but are going to help you look your best. Because there are tons of different clothing and garment options, it can sometimes be difficult to find exactly what it is that you want, so keep up on the latest trends by looking at magazines, looking to see what stores are selling and what other people are wearing while walking out on the street. These options can give you a clear idea on what the latest trends are like and what you should invest into buying.

With the start of fall comes amazing fashions to keep you cozy, warm and chic. You'll love the tremendous amount of sales happening that are specific to this season and that allow you to find and buy only the very best clothing and shoe options at rock bottom prices. You will notice that a good majority of stores out there offer some of their best sales at the beginning of fall, so this is a great time for you to start shopping for yourself and for the rest of your family as well.

Why You Need a Bargain

Shoe bargains can be found virtually anywhere and at any time of the year, however, there are certain times of the year when sales are more readily available. Labor Day and Memorial Day are huge in the retail industry world, so you'll often find a good majority of sales and shoe bargains around this time.

Which Retailers are the Best for a Bargain?

You can find most of their sales online or locally, so be aware of when they're offering these bargains.

Which Shoes to Choose

You might want to shop a season ahead or behind when it comes to getting the best price on your shoes. This means that you'll be purchasing shoes when they're on clearance or on deep sales because the store is just trying to get rid of their inventory. Most people shopping for footwear find that the best discounts they get is when shoes are put onto clearance because it's the end of the season. If you stay relatively consistent with your shoe size, you can easily buy shoes for the next year and have them ready and available for wearing.

There is absolutely no reason for you to spend a small fortune on the shoes that you need and want for the season ahead.

How to Pick the Right Accessories for Your Outfit

How to Pick the Right Accessories for Your Outfit
Being fashionable and always looking your best is an individual style preference. However, the right accessories can make or break even the greatest outfit. Jewelry, scarves, shoes and handbags can also help to make your wardrobe go even further by creating different kinds of looks. Think about a basic black dress and how many different looks can be created with simple, understated pieces or bright, bold pieces. To look your best, put as much effort into selecting your fashion accessories as you do the main components of your ensemble.

When choosing how to accessorize your look, consider several factors - color, scale and style of the pieces that you choose and how they will complement, rather than overwhelm, your outfit. It's also important to think about the occasion you are planning for - casual or business, day or evening.

The colors that you are coordinating are the first and most important part of choosing how to accessorize. Black, white and any neutral colors make accessorizing a breeze because basically any color or finish of your jewelry will match. When you are complementing outfits that are more colorful, it's important to choose pieces that won't clash with what you wearing.

It's completely acceptable to accessorize with colors that are not the same as what you're wearing as long as the colors complement each other. Reds and pinks, blues and purples, yellows with greens.. and if you're feeling especially bold, combining more than one color as your accessory can create a unique and fun look.

Consider patterns and prints as well when choosing how to accessorize. If what you're wearing is really busy - floral prints, ruffles or plaids, for example - better to choose simple jewelry or solid colors. Keep your choices understated so as not to create a gaudy look with too much going on.

Your body shape is also important. Women with larger frames, for example, can wear jewelry that is also larger. Medium and larger size bags can complement the curves of a larger sized woman. Smaller women should choose large pieces in isolation and not try to combine several pieces to wear at once.

Most importantly, the right fashion accessories can define your fashion style. Simple, classic pieces like pearls, simple chains, and solitary bangles say "I'm in control", "I'm serious", "I choose to keep it refined". Long, draping earrings, over sized rings, rhinestones and crystals and oversized glasses say, "I feel glamourous", "I feel confident", and "I choose to define my own style". Accessorizing with playful pieces like bold, chunky bracelets, brightly colored earrings and large, printed handbags say, "I love having fun", "I am unique", and "I am completely unpredictable!"

Choosing how to accessorize what you are wearing tells the world what you want it to know. Be creative! It's easy to create a unique personality simply be accessorizing.

Five of the Top Budget Beauty Products
There are literally thousands of beauty products available and it can be overwhelming when you try to sort through them. To help you out, I have provided a list of five amazing products under twenty-five dollars. Not only will you read about some amazing products, but you will see how you can save money too. Read on for my five favorite picks.

Mary Kay Vitamin C Squares

These amazing little squares are 100% vitamin C! Seriously! All that vitamin C packed into something that is almost transparent. It is so easy to use. I can use just a few drops of water to dissolve it and then mix it with my moisturizer. Then I apply my moisturizer as usual but now I have a full, concentrated dose of Vitamin C being directly fused into my skin. This is one of the best beauty products on the market.$24,

Covergirl True Blend Face Primer for Combo Skin

This is one of my favorites because I tend to sweat in the summer. It is exciting to actually find a primer that work. It glides on easily creating a smooth palette for my makeup. It is non-comodogenic (which is great for sweaty people like me) and suitable for many skin types. It keeps my makeup looking super fresh.$8.79

Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water

This is an amazing cleanser because you don't really have to do any scrubbing to cleanse your face. There is no oil, no alcohol, and its unscented. It is totally free of harsh chemicals. And it works pretty fast considering the fact that you don't have to scrub. This product is also great for sensitive skin. The cleanser is perfectly priced for someone on a budget. $8.99

E.L.F. Cosmetics Beauty Blender Sponge

There are a million and one beauty sponges on the market and, personally, I am not excited to pay twenty bucks for a sponge. Since I am on a budget, I tried the E.L.F. sponge which is in the lower price range, but it is an amazing sponge that allows me to perfectly contour my makeup like a pro. It is only available online, and it comes in three different cool colors. $5

L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Miss Manga Mascara

One of the most popular beauty products is mascara. I am a person who loves big lashes so this mascara had to go on the list. This L'Oreal mascara is amazing because it actually gives you movie star lashes. You will be wide-eyed and glamorous after using the flexible 360 degree brush. The brush designs are really great because it helps to get those hard to reach lashes. The best part for me is that its waterproof (because I sweat!). $7.99
