Anya Sarre – A New Year, A New Look, A New You!

Want a new style for the New Year?  Feel like you can’t because you are short on cash?  You’re not alone.

Luckily, with DIY ideas, affordable online stores and great retail outlets, you too can find your inner fashionista!

Online shopping is a great way to get the hottest fashions at the best prices!  Popular sites like ShoeDazzle let you take a style quiz while a real fashion expert helps you find the cutest, funkiest, or trendiest bags and shoes to meet your style.

You can totally pick up items that make a statement (and build an entire outfit around them) at fun sites like StyleMint and Stella & Dot that offer ridiculously low shipping options.

Another awesome site is Birchbox.  If you want to get free samples of some of the hottest merchandise, this is the site for you.

Everyone loves free stuff, and you know your girlfriends will too.

Hooray for easy gift ideas!

Of course, every girl still loves spending the day at the mall, even if we don’t want to spend our whole paycheck.

Stores like H & M, Delia’s, and Forever 21 offer super cute clothes, shoes, and jewelry for great prices!

Here you can find a hot dress to go with your new shoes or a cute top that will match your new bag perfectly.

DIY Couture, perfect for Valentine's Day on February 14 !

The absolute best way to create your own specific fashion for the New Year is with DIY pieces.

Whether you are super creative or not doesn’t matter with a little help from Pinterest.

If you don’t already have one, it is free to create an account.

Once you do, you have access to thousands of great, inexpensive DIY ideas!

Need a cute hair accessory to complete your new outfit, just search DIY headbands, barrettes, or clips.

Plus, since you are already making one, you might as well make one for your bestie too!

In addition to DIY, Pinterest is awesome for keeping up with all the latest fashion trends!

Just search with terms like “fashion” or “Spring fashion” to get ideas for the cutest outfits for the New Year. There are even videos on everything from how to do hair to how to tie an infinity scarf, so you are always in the know!

You can also get great gift ideas by following your friends on Pinterest.

Remember Valentine’s Day is coming up fast, the night every girl and guy wants to look their best.

Make this year the best yet with DIY and great low-cost fashions for you and your friends!

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, fantastic site!
