Bangs Garcia gives tips on how to stay fashionable without spending a lot


042611-bangs_main.jpgWhile it is a must for celebrities to be seen in their most fashionable outfits, Bangs Garcia revealed that there are ways to look hot and trendy without going overboard. “Actually, hindi ako masyado mahilig mag-collect ng designer items. Siguro [unconsciously], pero pinakamarami ko ngayon, sapatos. Favorite ko yung Bebe shoes. Nabili ko siya sa Dubai. Although tatlong pairs pa lang yung Bebe shoes ko, so far yun ang pinaka-favorite ko ngayon,” said the sexy actress whose fashion style is very simple yet glam.

Bangs further shared that she loves to try different and exciting looks when she’s attending social functions both for work and play. But she stays away from purchasing expensive accessories because she has the tendency to be careless with her jewelry at times. “Pagdating sa accessories, gusto ko fashion jewelries kasi lagi ako nawawalan ng totoong jewelries. Tapos lahat ng yun nanggaling pa sa mommy ko, pinamana lang niya sa akin. So promise ko sa sarili ko hindi ako magiging maluho. Dumaan na kasi ako sa phase na yun.”

Apparently, she used to be a compulsive shopper when she was just starting out in showbiz; but she eventually realized the importance of saving at least part of her earnings for her future use. “It happened during my Close Up to Fame days, mga 2005. I was still young and immature back then, so lahat ng kinikita ko napupunta sa wala. Pero after nun marunong na ako humawak ng pera. At this age pa lang, I think about my future. Hindi ako yung tipong brand conscious kasi naniniwala ako na kayang dalhin ng tao yung kahit ‘di signature accessories at pwede pa rin sabihin na mamahalin.

The 23 year-old was grateful that she learned to spend her money wisely early on in her showbiz career since artists don’t get TV projects all the time. “Aside from shopping kasi, I love eating. I always eat in fine dining restaurants. May time na tumira ako sa Makati, sa tabi ng Greenbelt, so nauubos pera ko kakakain ng masasarap na food. Pero yun nga, mas alam ko na mag-budget ngayon. And every time may income ako, dina-diversify ko sa mga investments or nilalagay ko sa bank, para kapag nagkapamilya ako, hindi ako mahihirapan or magwo-worry kung papaano magsisimula,” she added.
