Every woman needs to spend money on clothes, accessories and beauty products. But how can you look your best on a budget?

Moul Linda, 19, says she loves fashion.

“Every month, I spend a lot of money on it. I often go shopping with my friends for clothes, shoes, bags and cosmetics.

“I’m constantly updating my wardrobe with new styles. I want to look totally up to date.

“But I don’t throw all my old stuff away. I try to be creative by changing an item a little bit so it looks different from before. Then I can use it with other things to create a unique style for myself.

“Sometimes, I’ll watch a Thai or Korean movie and get some inspiration from it to create a style for myself.

“I don’t copy from movies, though; I just notice things and draw some of the good points from them.

“But that’s not enough. The way I use make-up is also important. A woman’s make-up style is perhaps even more important than her dress sense.

 “We may be wearing the newest, most fashionable clothes, but if we don’t have beautiful skin and hair, it doesn’t work.

“In total, I spend between $130 and $140 on clothes and accessories each month.

“You may think that isn’t much, but I don’t have a job yet. I’m still a student and I don’t have much money.”
