In this difficult time of recession we are trying to save as much money as possible. So I think it doesn't come as a big surprise to anyone that designer outfit are not selling as they used to, as women prefer cheaper costumes. But is it really worth it to buy cheap clothes just to save money? In my opinion, not really. If you buy for example a cheap apparel from some cheap shop, you might end up going there again in few months to buy another one. Why? Because the quality won't be that good, probably it will shrink after a first wash and after several washes it will look as you have had it for ages. So buying cheap costumes just to save money might not be the best idea. It saves neither money nor time.
