I've always considered myself
cheap fugal. I love to shop, but I can't stomach spending more than twenty bucks on an article of clothing, unless it's something really special. Especially in the Summer, when I just want simple and breezy clothing with little fuss. I stalk the clearance racks, and love a good thrifted find but sometimes that doesn't cut it.
Keeping up with current trends while also staying true to my budget-conscious nature sometimes proves to be tricky. Ya know, because usually things get marked down or thrown out to second-hand shops when they are considered out of date. My window for buying Summer clothing is short-lived being from a region where it's cold and unpredictable more often than not.
But, Raise.com is changing the game on how you shop. Raise.com is the first online marketplace where users can buy and sell gift cards. This means you don't have to shop less, you just have to shop smart. Raise.com makes it easy to get more bang for your buck by offering a platform for people with unwanted gift cards to sell them for a lesser cash value; giving you more to spend at your favorite stores!
The look above is a great representation of my signature Summer style, and is one that you could easily recreate by taking advantage of Raise.com's new way of purchasing the latest fashions. I tend to go for a more effortless looking style with an edge. I love a good pair of cut-offs and ankle boots. And, more often than not, you'll find me in a simple tank worn under a flannel or kimono top. I utilize practical accessories like hats and sunglasses to give something extra to my look without adding any hassle.
