How To: Kawaii On A Budget

Many people ask me how to be kawaii with less money. Here is an answer I wrote about 1 month ago on Tumblr . I posted it here so more people can see it and it won't disappear in the flood of my Tumblr posts!

1.- Time
Your kawaii stuff accumulates by time. Some of my kawaii items are 7 years old XD I have clothing items, which are 4 years old! When I go shopping and I see something I like, the first thing I do is look at THE PRICE TAG. If the price is ok, I get it or I get it not! I can be 1 hour in a shop because I’m only buying the best thing with the best price, and I want to be sure that I know what I’m doing. Btw, I think that there are a lot of people that have more kawaii stuff then me, I just know HOW to make it look like a lot XD 
2.- ONLY Kawaii
Whatever you need, get in the kawaii version! Pillows, bed sheets, pencils, food, ironing boards, toilet paper, cups….If you start buying the kawaii version of your everyday needs, you’ll get kawaii soon! ; D 
Oh, and, the kawaii version of that is NOT more expensive than the “normal stuff”!
3.-Let your friends know what you love!
If you have good friends, or family members, let them know that your a kawaii addict and show them your kawaii side! So when you have Birthday, you’ll get something kawaii for sure! My more expensive clothes, like Angelic Pretty, BSSB or just stuff that you can only get in Japan, were presents!
4.- Get it 2nd hand!
2nd hand BSSB, Angelic Pretty, and Vintage clothes! Google helps you finding 2nd hand sellers in your near! : D Also, 2nd hand is more than half price cheaper!
Shops you can get stuff cheaply:
Pro: Was always my favourite for shopping since I was 6 years old. lol. :)
Contra: Has some more sexy mainstream stuff too, but not that much so I can’t really say a contra.
Pro: Affordable, cute lolita clothing and cosplay
Contra: The quality isn’t bad, but not on “designer” level! You get what you pay for!
Pro: Has promotion sometimes, and very nice accessories which are not that expensive!
Contra: Do have some cute stuff, which is, indeed, sometimes, yes, expensive like wow.
Pro: You can get there so many kawaii clothes you’ll drown in them!
Contra: The quality is not very legit! XD
Pro: Hit the expensive brands during promotion seasons. A great way to get designer stuff for low prices.
Contra: Still expensive, so you have to save money throughout the year.
Promotion season means also, crowds and queues. 
Do it yourself
Pro: Sewing your own kawaii clothes is a great way to save money and own something others don’t! You can get cheap, cute fabric and lace in most sewing stores!
Contra: Requieres a sewing machine and skills.
Additional: When I was 3 years old and we didn’t have enough money in Switzerland, mom sew me my clothes! I still have most of them <3 I remember that people told me, that “I look cute again” haha! Memorieeeeeessss! <3333333
Ok, hope I could help! <333
