How to Make The Most of FREE Retail Loyalty Programs

Although I love to shop, I always try to be frugal with my money and how I spend it. I almost never pay full price for shoes or clothing, and most of my wardrobe is bought at 75% off or more from retail price! One of my top secrets is to make the most of loyalty programs—even at places you shop a few times a year. Here are some of my favorite loyalty programs to score a deal:

6 Style Tips to Look like Fashion Pro

If you feel like you’re one of those people who will never be “stylish”, there is hope! A lot of times it’s not the clothes that you have, but the unique way that you wear them that makes your stylish look. Here are 6 tips to pulling together an outfit that will make you feel like a style pro.

  1. If you struggle with style, stick to the basics. Dark skinny jeans, button up blouses, simple cozy sweaters, and classic cut dresses won’t go out of style, and are the easiest way to look polished every day. Start with basics and add pops through statement shoes, jewelry, or a bold lip color.

Rent the Runway: July Shipment

For my second month of Rent the Runway, I wanted to refresh my summer wardrobe with pretty dresses and skirts for work. I felt more prepared this order, because I was able to shop all month and “like” items that I was interested in renting instead of being in a panic trying to sort through everything to get my order.

I again found it frustrating that there isn’t a lot of availability of a lot of the items. Of my likes, about half were available in my size. I’m always looking for 1-2 skirts and 2-3 dresses in a variety of formal and fun looks, so it’s actually pretty difficult when the ones you really wanted aren’t available and you have to try to find backups. As I said in my first month review, I’m also really only interested in renting designer items that are worth the money– if I want to wear a $40 free people dress, I’ll just go buy it!
