  Still on a budget? Try these cheap fashion tips  

  1. Keep your store receipts and product tags for at least two months. You never know when you might want to return something because your tastes have changed, you have found a defect in the garment or the color is all wrong. Most chain stores have a very forgiving return policy. Of course, if you have worn it ... don't be a chiseler, it's yours.

  手头还是有点紧?试试以下几个省钱时尚小窍门:

  将购物小票和商品标牌保存至少两个月。你不知道自己什么时候会因为口味改变、发现衣服上有瑕疵或颜色不对,而想把东西给退了。大多数连锁店在退货方面还是很“仁慈的”。当然,如果你穿过了,那就别去蒙人了,留着吧。

  2. Take a strapless dress or tunic and wear it over a turtle neck for winter or over a tee shirt or thin blouse in warm weather. You get two looks for the price of one, and when traveling, packing these items can double your wardrobe.

  冬天,将无肩带连衣裙或罩衫穿在高领衫外面;暖和的天气可以把它穿在T恤或薄短衫外面。这样,一件衣服“两穿”,旅游时带上很实用。

  3. Wearing mule style shoes this summer? Try a spritz of hair spray on the inner sole so your feet don't slip.

  今年夏天爱上凉拖?可以在内鞋底上喷点发胶,这样脚在里面就不会打滑了。

  4. Are your shoes scuffed? Dab the spot with a small dollop of Vaseline and blend into the entire shoe for instant shine. Or, polish the shoes with a little hand cream poured onto a paper towel.

  鞋上有磨痕?可以在这些地方涂一小团凡士林,抹匀之后可以使鞋子立刻发亮。或者用纸巾蘸点护手霜把鞋擦亮。

  5. For dry cuticles, use either Vaseline or A&D ointment. On top of this slather your hands with your favorite hand lotion. Your hands and nails will stay moisturized for hours.

  皮肤干燥?用凡士林或A&D药膏。此外,把自己最爱用的护手霜厚厚的涂在手上。这样,你的手和指甲会保湿好几个小时。

  6. Another nail tip: For drying wet nail polish quickly, dip hands into ice cold water or spray nails with cooking oils

  另一个护甲窍门:要想让指甲油速干,可以把手放进冰水里,或者往指甲上喷炒菜油。

  7. Stop paying top dollar for makeup removal pads . Try generic brands of baby wipes to remove makeup.

  不用昂贵的卸妆巾,可以用一般牌子的婴儿用清洁巾来卸妆。

  8. If you are a thin, petite-sized woman, don't overlook the children's department for casual clothing such as shorts, capris, cargo pants, denim jackets and T-shirts.

  如果你很娇小,可以去儿童区看看短裤、紧身裤、休闲运动裤、帆布夹克及T恤等休闲装。

  9. This is the season of fake tans . Try using hair removal creams to remove any self-tanner streaks on the sides of your feet, palms, elbow and knees. Rub it on, then immediately wipe it off with a washcloth or tissue.  

  “假檀”是本季的流行风。可以用脱毛膏除去脚、手掌、胳膊肘和膝盖上的“假晒色”。抹上之后,立刻用毛巾或湿巾擦试干净。
