Building (My) Wardrobe:
Where did I buy my costumes?
I've already covered two blogs (how I got sponsored & "purchasing pieces" ) about how I've build my current wardrobe. The following articles is an (ongoing) set about shops I have bought pieces I currently own and where I either continue to purchase pieces or recommend the shop (for both its quality & service) for both personal as paid work.
The following blog is from shops I've purchased with; even if I'm affiliated and/or sponsored with/from them.
This post is not sponsored in any way and is purely based upon my experiences and how much I like the products and results. Even if I'm gifted a piece/pieces or have traded - or they're clients of mine; all actual purchases have been made by my own free will and paid with my own salary for my business and wardrobe.
