How Much Should You Budget for the Closet?

A girl has got to look good right?
This requires buying clothes right?
This brings us to the ultimate question.
How much should you spend on clothing for yourself?

I have struggled with this in the past, but I have now come to the realization that I am worth saving for :) I really feel that every lady should save a little bit each week out of her paycheck for a clothing budget. You feel great when you look good and feeling great truly is what life is all about. Right?

Okay, so now the question is, how much should you save each week out of your paycheck? Every ladies' budget will be different depending on her occupation and what her lifestyle is. I work in fashion, so I definitely need a little wardrobe update every now and then. I personally have decided to save 10% out of my paycheck every week for my clothing allowance. And when I say clothing, that includes shoes and accessories as well. I recommend saving a minimum of 10% out of your paycheck every week for your wardrobe allowance.

If you wear a uniform to work every day then your clothing budget may be less, however I still feel that in order to feel like the gorgeous lady that you already are, you still need to save a little to spend on updating your look. Every lady deserves to feel great about themselves. And please don't think that I judge others by the way they look. I most certainly do not! I just know that from my experience in assisting ladies become their most stylish selves, it is then when they appear the happiest! I think it may have something to do with discovering the fact that they can have any occupation or hobby, whether it be a mechanic, construction worker, engineer or scientist, and still look like they walked out of VOGUE! 

Let's face it ladies. We really do have it all don't we!!
