It's pay day soon! I recall my first job after graduating. I worked in Ikoyi at the time, and I would frequently go to the nearby shopping centre to window shop. If I came across a nice deal, I would occasionally put a deposit while I waited for pay day to arrive so I could get my goodies and rock. The good old days! If you operate a business like I do, pay day may not seem as special as we would have liked, but at the end of each month, I always treat myself to something nice, no matter how tiny. It's my way of telling myself, "Well done, you made it through another salary month."
Let me share with you some tips for throwing in some pay day retail therapy-
- Set a budget: Before you start shopping, decide on a budget that you are comfortable with. This will help you avoid overspending and ensure that you don’t regret your purchases later.
- Make a list: Make a list of the items that you need or want to buy. This will help you stay focused and avoid impulse purchases.
- Shop online: Shopping online can be a great way to save time and money. Many online retailers offer free shipping for orders above certain amount and you can often find great deals and discounts. (P.s – DFL currently has the November UK international free shipping going on)
- Try before you buy: If you’re shopping in-store, make sure to try on the clothes before you buy them. This will help you avoid buying items that don’t fit properly or don’t look good on you.
- Invest in quality pieces: Consider investing in high-quality classic pieces that will last for years to come. While they may be more expensive upfront, they will save you money in the long run by not needing to be replaced as often.

Remember, payday fashion retail therapy should be fun and enjoyable! Don’t stress too much after all all work and no play or shopping makes Jill a dull girl! Lol
