Shopping Profile: Trendy Blogger Scarlett Jones
Full time student, part time blogger on The Trendy Chick!
Favorite designers / brands:
I love getting bargains, so many times I am looking for specific pieces I like, not specific brands. If I had to pick one brand it would have to be Steve Madden because of their gorgeous shoes!
My daily uniform normally consists of jeans or jeggings, along with a cute sweater and a scarf. I am obsessed with scarves and wear them at least 3 times a week! Lately I have also been loving dainty rings, so you would probably find me wearing a few of those as well. Lastly, I would wear moccasins or my riding boots with to complete the outfit!
Best designer item I got a discount on and where I bought it:
One of my favorite places to shop, besides thrift stores is T. J. Maxx because they always have cute designer items that are affordable. A few years ago I found a pair of Steve Madden sandals there for under $10, and I still love and wear them since they are so cute!
Shop discount stores and thrift stores. I enjoy going through the racks at Goodwill or my local designer consignment shop to find cute pieces that are affordable, too. Also, don't be afraid to shop the clearance rack at your favorite stores! Many stores have a clearance section and there is no shame in going through it to find your new favorite piece.
If you ever come across a piece you like that has a small imperfection that you can either fix easily or don't mind it having, ask for money off. Even if it is already marked down, don't be afraid to speak up and ask. The worst thing that can happen is the salesperson will say no. If they really aren't budging, feel free to ask for the owner/manager. Sometimes the salespeople can't give discounts but the manager can, so again, it never hurts to ask!
