Kayla Cozza Fashionably Frugal

Kayla Cozza's blog focuses on finding quality pieces at bargain prices. Aside from running her own blog, Kayla is an elementary school teacher in inner city Brooklyn, a volunteer at her church and local nonprofit for children with Down Syndrome, and an exercise fanatic. Standing at 5’5’’, Kayla isn’t technically petite; however, she often finds herself shopping in the petite section to find clothing that actually fits (especially pants with a shorter rise and length!). We of course had to ask Kayla for tips on how to find great pieces on a budget. She had three main tricks: (1) Shop at end of season: February for winter, May for Spring, August for Summer, and November for Fall. (2) Look for similar alternatives on the retailer's site. For example, if you see a cold shoulder top you love, try doing a search for “cold shoulder” to see what else comes up. (3) Shop at your local resale shop: many are highly selective about their items and only purchase on-trend pieces. Aside from wearing stylish clothing, Kayla shares that “the best look you can ever have as a woman is confidence! Own who you are and your own personal style, be unapologetic, and you will shine!”. We couldn’t agree more.
