On the blog today features one of the best bargain shopper, she will be sharing with us few  tips and tricks for summer shopping on a budget , this will be a 3 part series hope you like it….

Hello, my name is Chanda Plair. I began bargain shopping as a child. I grew up in a poor household and on public assistance my mom  took us to garage sales every Saturday and we would hunt for finds. Eventually my mom secured a better job and got remarried and we no longer had to be on public assistance. However, my love for bargain shopping never ended. As I began to shop for myself over the years the excitement of purchasing designer items for 50%-90% off really excites me. I do love high-end designer goods but I had to make sure I got them at the biggest discount possible. So I shopped around for best prices. My favorite online shopping is I can normally find tons of designer items marked down to about 60%. These items are gently used but that’s ok with me. I also shop Goodwill,People are amazed at the things I find at Goodwill like my Chanel flats! Goodwill has a rewards card,after accumulating  number of points you receive a$25 credit. I also love Saks Off 5th,They have designer clearance items 2-3 times a year for $14,And don’t forget Nordstrom Rack during the Clear The Rack event. I shop Clear The Rack 7 days in advance to avoid crowds then I return and repurchase during the event for 25%off. 

I offer styling,personal image consulting and personal  shopping I am also a  fashion and beauty blogger,I do social media promotions and  handle social media for a model agency. I am also in the process of forming a modeling agency with a photographer. I assist and participate in anything and everything that involves fashion.

My Motto is……….NEVER pay retail.
