How to Look Fabulous for Less this Party Season


My little style secret to looking fabulous for less throughout the party season…


Wearing: Black Dress from Shedd App, Black Boots (similar here or here), Denim Jacket, Givenchy Bag.

The party season is upon us! The month of December is usually filled with Christmas parties, work functions, and generally just any excuse to celebrate the holiday season. But with all the parties comes outfits, and with every new dress, the bank balance goes down! I don’t know about you, but right now I have so many other things to spend my money on (like curtains for my new house!) so buying a fancy new dress for every occasion is not really an option.

Well, guess what?! I have found the perfect solution… enter Shedd app, my ‘little secret’ to looking fabulous for less throughout the party season!

You may recall my recent post about de-cluttering my wardrobe with Shedd by selling  your unwanted items, well obviously it works both ways and of course you can also purchase second hand things from the app! I talked about how easy it was to sell your things, well buying is even easier. As soon as you open the app all the items for sale in your area are shown. You can scroll through and click on the pieces you like to find out more information. If you are interested to buy then you can message the seller directly from the listing and arrange to meet up and exchange the item. The great part about Shedd is that the items are shown relative to your location, so you will only see things for sale in your area, which means you can arrange to see the item before you purchase too.

The whole process is so easy and potentially you could have a new dress in a matter of hours! I have my eye on a black Kookai number that would be perfect for my husband’s upcoming  work function, and at only $25 I think it is one expense I can definitely afford!

    This sounds like a great way to find something cool for a great price. Perfect for holiday events since the pieces often don’t get worn a ton so you don’t want to spend a ton. I love the dress you got and how you styled it.
