Do you ever walk into a shop and instantly get sad because nothing is within budget? Me too!
I’m not a rich girl. I don’t get to go out daily and spend lots and lots of pennies on things that I want. My money is used for things I need to live. So, even though I want to live kawaii lifestyle, I need to do it on a bit of a budget.
But can you live a kawaii lifestyle on a budget?!
Brands Don’t Matter!
I used to believe that to look cute I needed all the biggest branded fashion items. But that’s not true at all. With shops such as Romwe, Forever 21 and Asos around, kawaii clothing is becoming super affordable. My favourite time to buy kawaii clothing is Spring time where everything is super pastel and cute. Romwe, Asos and Forever 21 are perfect for this because they are relatively cheap anyway but often have sales which makes things even more affordable.
Sales, Reductions and Second Hand!
Not only are sales amazing for finding cute items, you can look around for coupons and discount codes for certain shops. This may get you some money off or free shipping which is all a little extra money saved. If this fails and you’re still struggling to find the perfect bag, shoes, clothing or item then head to your local charity shop. They have a huge range of second hand and sometimes new clothing. I’m sure that you’ll be able to find something that is your style and also kawaii.
If you manage to find a super kawaii clothing piece but it’s in the wrong size or it has a hole, then why not get a little crafty with it. Get sewing and add pastel patches to your clothing to fill the holes. You could even consider buying clothing in huge sizes just for the fabric and making something completely new from scratch. It all depends on how crafty you are.
So, if you’re thinking of trying out kawaii fashion then keep these tips in mind and you might save yourself a penny or two..
