Should You Buy Ivanka Trump’s Brand?

Now That Nordstrom Dropped the Ivanka Trump Line, and a few more retailers are joining the migration, many of her fans are wondering what is going on and where will they be able to get her merchandise.

So, should you buy Ivanka Trump’s brand? To be very honest with you, I was never a fan of her line. I found the fit was not flattering for most body types and the quality was poor.

Years ago I bought a pair of her shoes because they looked so good, but after wearing them for one night and losing all feeling in my feet as they hurt so much, I realized my feet were not meant for her shoes, no matter how cute they looked.

When a line of clothes or accessories gets bad reviews and the quality is not that great, people stop buying it.

It happens to be very common for retailers to drop lines from their stores, and Ivanka Trump isn’t the first and definitely will not be the last.

I got Should You Buy Ivanka Trump's Brand?the following stats from International Business Times website.

“Citing internal Nordstrom data, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday that sales of Ivanka Trump’s fashion line dropped by about 32 percent last fiscal year. Sales of Ivanka’s footwear and apparel fell more than 70 percent lower in the second, third and fourth weeks of October 2016 compared with the same time the year before.”

But, if you loved how her line fits you and the feeling it evokes when you wear it, have no fear as many stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Amazon, Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Zappos still carry Ivanka Trump products.

If her sales keep slipping, it won’t be long till more retailers go from having Trumps products go from available for sale, to on sale, to no longer available for sale.

That’s business, not politics.

There are many lines out there that offer style, comfort, flattering fit and high quality. I tell my clients about them all the time.

5 Ways To Shop Sales and Save Money

5 Ways To Shop Sales and Save MoneyBeware of fake sales!!!

SALE

50% OFF

EVERYTHING MUST GO

ONE DAY SALE

CLEARANCE

UP TO 70% OFF

 

There are real sales, great sales, and fake sales. Personally, I love the really great sales and, as all my clients know, there isn’t a sales rack out there that I haven’t scoured to find a great deal.

Avoid falling for the sneaky trap that some retailers offer. Usually, a sign on top of the rack showing the original price and then what their ‘special’ sale prices are for that day, is merchandise that was bought and priced to be sold at the lower price, so you are not getting a deal at all, trust me on this.

So what are the best ways to shop sales? Here are 5 Ways To Shop Sales and Save Money:

1. Browse the stores you like before they have a sale, so you know what you like and the original price the items sold at before they get marked down.

2. Don’t get overwhelmed at the multiple racks of deals. Focus on what styles, labels, and colors look best on you. Do Not focus on the price! A bargain is
no bargain when it is not right for you, no matter how inexpensive it may now be.

3. Keep your receipts, and if the items you purchased get marked down within two weeks of being purchased, most stores will credit you the difference.

4. Ask stores like Bloomingdales, Macy’s, and Lord & Taylor if they have any coupons for you to use towards your purchases. Often the salespeople are very
generous with what they have hidden in their drawers.

5. The days after Christmas are a bargain hunter’s delight. That sweater that was not right for one woman, is perfect for you and truly now is 30 to 50% off
Always get a price check on an item at this time of year, as often the sales people are too busy to place the reduced price on the ticket, and you might miss
out on a deal if you don’t ask for them to scan the tag. Take advantage of the After Christmas Sales!!

“Scarlett, is a pleasure to work with. She’s professional, knowledgeable, and fun! I loved playing dress-up with her guidance. She arrived with a bag of tricks, ready to work in my closet to prune, create, tweak, and suggest wardrobe additions. By the time she left, I had a small pile of clothes to donate, an understanding of my most flattering styles, many outfit options, and a shopping list for wardrobe enhancements. She followed-up by emailing the photos she took of all the outfits we had created (accessories and all), which will make getting dressed and packing for trips much simpler. Don’t even question whether or not to hire her. Just do it! Scarlett has a great eye, is creative, understands clothing and different body types, and is a really fun to work with. You will come away with clarity and confidence.”– L.S. New York, NY

4 Tips To Shop Sales and Save Money Shopping For Clothes

 

4 Tips To Shop Sales and Save Money Shopping For Clothes 

4 Tips To Shop Sales and Save Money Shopping For Clothes.

As much as I love taking advantage of ALL the sales, it can be a very expensive way to save money if one doesn’t buy the right things. A bargain purchase is only a bargain when you actually need and can use the item. It helps to know how to shop sales and what you should not buy no matter its cost.

That $100 top for only $40 plus an extra 20% is so enticing, but if it is in the wrong color, size and/or style, it will sit in your closet unworn and worst of all, unloved. Don’t let this tragedy happen to your purchases.

I have gotten some incredible deals and will keep taking advantage of the sales, for myself and my clients because that is one of my favorite ways of building a wardrobe without spending a fortune. After all, the first word I taught my daughter to read was SALE!

4 Tips To Shop Sales and Save Money Shopping For Clothes:

1.  When you see that a store you like is starting a sale, go to their website where you will have a bigger selection than what one individual store has in their inventory. This is especially helpful for smaller stores like J.McLauughlin, The Gap, etc.

2.  Shop thru Ebates, where not only will you get to shop online but will also receive cash back for your purchases, in the form of a check every 3 months. I have gotten back over $430 since I joined Ebates, which naturally I spent on sales.

3.  Don’t avoid higher-end stores like Neiman Marcus. For about the same cost, you can get higher quality merchandise during their sales, than the lower quality you might be buying at regular prices.

4. Last, but not least, only buy the clothes and accessories that look good on you. Not what is in style, a great deal or the salesperson tells you looks marvelous on you and is their best seller.

If you want to know what to buy and wear and stop wasting your money you can contact me and I will tell you what will make choosing what to wear fun, easy and oh so flattering.
