Six Commandments of Affordable Fashion


Being beautiful isn't about spending a lot of money. It's about feeling good in your skin and being confident enough to express yourself however you please. However, there are several ways that we can save money on clothing while still looking fashionable. So here are my top six commandments for affordable fashion:

#1 Thou shalt be mindful of trends.

You should be mindful of trends, but don't get too caught up in them. They are a good way to get new ideas, but they can also be expensive. Be careful about buying things you don't want or need just because they're trendy--it's an easy trap to fall into!

If you're looking for something specific that you see on the runway at Fashion Week (or in your favorite magazine), try consignment stores or thrift shops first before buying new clothes from those styles--you might find exactly what you want at half price!

#2 Thou shalt shop consignment stores and thrift shops in addition to buying new items.

The second commandment of affordable fashion is to shop consignment stores and thrift shops in addition to buying new items.

While you may not find a designer dress at these places, they're great for finding fashionable clothes at a fraction of the cost. You can find all kinds of items for a fraction of the cost--from shoes to handbags to jewelry--and sometimes even brand new items with tags still on them! Plus, if you don't see anything in your size or style preference there's always online shopping where it's easy to get what you want without having to leave your house (or even take off your PJs).

#3 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's clothing—unless it's for sale at Howse Fashion Company!

If you're coveting something, it's because you want it. And if you want something, chances are that means the item in question can make your life better. So why not go for it? After all, there's nothing wrong with wanting the best things in life.

The only reason some people don't get what they want is because they think they can't afford it or won't be able to wear an article of clothing more than once or twice before its style becomes outdated (and thus unfashionable). But at Howse Fashion Company we believe strongly in having faith and believing in yourself--so much so that we're adding a whole new category of affordable fashion called "affordable luxury," which lets anyone affordably dress like royalty!

#4 Thou shalt use coupons and rewards programs whenever possible.

The fourth commandment of affordable fashion is that thou shalt use coupons and rewards programs whenever possible.

You can find coupons online, on social media, in the mail and in stores. That's right--you can actually get money back for shopping at some stores. It's not much, but every little bit helps when you're trying to save money, right? In addition to using coupons and rewards programs, it can also be helpful to check out websites like Retail Me Not or Coupon Sherpa for more coupons.

#5 Thou shalt always do research before purchasing any item that costs more than $50.

You must always do your research before purchasing anything that costs more than $50. If you're going to spend money on something, make sure it's worth it and not just because your friends are wearing it. Don't fall into the trap of buying overpriced items online because they are "on sale."

#6 Remember that being beautiful on the outside requires inner beauty as well!

Remember that being beautiful on the outside requires inner beauty as well! The way we treat others, how we live our lives and what we think about ourselves, are all part of an inner beauty that will make you feel confident and happy.

To be truly beautiful you need to have a good sense of humor - because life is funny! 

You need to be generous and thoughtful towards people who are less fortunate than yourself; not just those in other countries but also those living in your own neighborhood who may not have such a great home or job as yours.

You should also try your best not to judge others by their appearance - no one's perfect so why should they be judged as such?

These commandments will help you save money while still looking fashionable!

  • Take the time to find what you like
  • Don't buy something just because it's on sale
  • Don't spend more than you can afford
  • Don't feel guilty about buying something that's not on sale
  • Be patient and wait for a good deal


This is just the beginning of your journey to affordable fashion. I hope that you have found this article helpful, and that it has sparked some ideas for how to save money on clothes without sacrificing style. Remember: there is no right or wrong way to do it! Just remember that there are many ways--some more subtle than others--to get the look you want without spending money on designer labels. And if all else fails? Just ask yourself one question: does this look good on me?
