Summer Fashion That Doesn’t Break the Bank #ShareTheSecret

Share Button

Given the opportunity I can spend far too much money on clothing when the seasons change and with Summer on its way my fashion needs are great. Somehow I managed to outgrow my summer wear so I needed to restock on some basics. We won’t discuss the fact that this year my entire wardrobe seems to have shrunk…cough.

Unfortunately I don’t live a life of luxury and have to be wise about my fashion spending. These days I look for quality pieces at a lower cost to compliment my few higher priced accessories that I keep over the years. When Giant Tiger approached me to tell me about their new women’s fashion lines – the Lily Morgan™, MyStyle™ and the updated ACX Active™ my interest was piqued to say the least. We’ve shopped there more for household items infrequently over the years but I’ve never spent time in the fashion department so to be honest, it was with a bit of doubt that I went to check it out.

If you’re sitting there saying Giant Tiger has fashion? I know my friend…I feel ya but yes they do and it’s  fabulous! I am a woman who often wears the same outfit all day long, only to run into the house and out again for family activities without changing. I need comfortable clothing that looks fabulous without a high price and the Giant Tiger Ladies line fits the bill.

There are so many choices in theLily Morgan™ line. I fell in love with the summer dresses which seemed to stretch on for ages. There’s also these cute little shorts which came from the ACX Active™ which cost me $5 and shall be under every dress I wear this summer. Hey a sister has to combat chaffing and if my skirt blows up, nobody loses their vision!

Hang on…my shopping at Giant Tiger wasn’t just about the fashion. I have to be completely transparent and tell you all that I managed to spend $300 and ended up with 2 carts full of 2 sundresses, 5 tank tops, 4 pairs of shorts, a workout outfit, inflatable toys for the pool, groceries, toilet paper and household cleaners. Seriously…that’s amazing!

Since my shopping haul, I’ve been hosting friends by the pool who have noticed my cute outfits and of course the donuts in the pool. When I mention where I bought them, there’s often a sense of disbelief. You know that my friends doubted me…so I took the challenged and loaded them in the car to see for themselves. Seriously on three occasions I drove ladies to Giant Tiger 20 minutes away and watched them rock the savings on summer gear. There’s something satisfying about that.

Don’t be fooled by the inexpensive prices, the fashion line is lovely. Here I’m wearing the white ACX Active™ shorts with a white MyStyle™ tank and grey Lily Morgan™. Topped with a scarf, shrug for the evenings, smexy shoes and my fav new purse and I’m ready to hit the town!

Knowing that I’m shopping in a family-owned Canadian business and saving money just feels good. Add to that the fact that my wardrobe is complete and well…I’m a happy gal!

    I’ve been shopping the GT fashion section for a year now, and find the quality better than most department stores, not to mention the great prices. Last week I even bought an outfit to wear to a wedding reception, but sadly I had to return it, as the top was too small (it was the only one left in that color). I buy all my t=shirts, leggings, stretchy shorts, tanks there! I’m so happy with my local GT!!

    Every spring, I buy a few pairs of their flats and wear them all year. Can’t beat $8 each. except that I signed up for their newsletter and just received a coupon for $5 off shoes. Heading there tomorrow to see this years styles and colours.

    Besos Sarah.
