Once again, we've reached that time when we are all wondering what we should change in our lives to make this new year sweeter than the last. It's common to hear typical resolutions such as losing weight, finding a better job or meeting someone special - admit it, we've all heard these one too many times. One resolution we seldom hear, however, is in regards to our personal fashion. I've never heard someone say that their resolution is to dress better or to even to set aside more money in their budget to update their wardrobe. And why not? We all need clothes ... and not just clothes. What we all need is a sense of style that represents us. I think it's safe to say that you've heard that old saying, 'You are what you eat.' Well, I'm going to twist that around right now and tell you, you are what you wear! So why on earth would you not take pride with your wardrobe and have fun with accessories and develop your own personal style?

Just because you should update your wardrobe doesn't mean that you have to go and spend tons of money on new clothes and accessories - that's the beauty of today's world ... you can get everything you need for next to nothing. How? Simple. All you need to know is where to shop and what you need to take your look from plain to wow!

Many women underestimate the power that accessories hold. With the right accessories, you can take your look in any direction you imagined. Don't believe me? Here's an example: say you're wearing some classic black pants, a simple black top and some heels. Add a metal chain and you just kicked up your look to a rocker vibe. Add some pearls and you've got yourself a classic glam vibe. Add some long chains and well what do you know ... you've got yourself a boho vibe. Are you starting to get the idea? All you need are the right accessories and you don't need to splurge on a whole new wardrobe.

Now, if for instance you do want to spice up your wardrobe with some new pieces but are very tight on your budget, don't stress because there are so many ways you can shop cheap nowadays that it's ridiculous. If you're an out-and-about kind of gal, try a flea market. Sometimes you can come across such amazing finds - such as a vintage jacket for only $20. Now, you may need to pay a visit to a few flea markets if you want to find particular items but for the most part, it's a great feeling going in and having no idea how many treasures you'll leave with. If you're not the type of person that likes to travel, you can shop cheap online. Nowadays, you can find almost anything on eBay (you can even find some high quality designer deals for a very cheap price).

With so many great ways to shop and so many wonderful cheap pieces to buy that'll update your look instantly, don't waste anymore time not looking absolutely fabulous! Happy shopping!
