5 Reasons I Buy CAbi Clothes
I look forward to the new CAbi collection that comes out each year. I am not a consultant for the company and I don't have any family members or even any good friends that are consultants, but I am crazy for their clothes!
Here are the top 5 reasons why I continue to purchase CAbi clothes each season (almost exclusively):
1. Their clothes coordinate very well together - season after season.
This is my number one reason why I buy CAbi. I started out buying their clothes about 4 years ago, just a few items here and there while attending shows. I soon learned that the blue pants I purchased at my first party still match CAbi clothes I'm buying today. And even better, those blue pants still look brand new, even though they've been washed over and over. In spring 2014, they had a coral pair of jeans that I absolutely had to have. With CAbi, I easily justified buying them because I was also able to purchase 4 blouses that matched and I see there are items in the 2015 spring line that will also wear well with these pants. I love that a color doesn't go out of style and I am building up my wardrobe over the years.
2. My CAbi consultant is experienced.
I only learned recently that all CAbi consultants have to go through specialized training and attend CAbi conferences before they are allowed to open for business. Most network marketing companies just sign you up, get their money, and have no concerns how you are selling their products. CAbi has a lot of stringent rules in place in order to insure their consultants are top-notch. So when I'm shopping at my consultant's house, I'm getting an experienced fashion consultant that helps me look my best. She knows how the clothes need to fit, what size I should wear. I've never had to return a single item yet due to wrong sizing or low quality. Plus, I always learn new ways to coordinate my outfits. She helps me put together colors and pieces that I would never have thought of on my own.
3. I hate shopping.
Ugh, I have so many other ways I'd rather spend my day than shopping. There was a time when shopping was fun and I could literally spend the entire day at the mall. Not any more. Plus, wading through piles of clothes, not finding my size when I actually find something I like, waiting for a dressing room, and then wondering where the clothes have been that I'm purchasing have been before - yuck!

4. I always have something to wear.
Seriously, I no longer look in my closet and say to myself that I have nothing to wear! What a concept. Truthfully, I now look in my closet and ask myself what do I want to wear today. With less choices (because I finally got rid of the clothes I never wear!), and with all my CAbi clothes made to wear together, I have so many more options than I used to have when I would buy separates from different stores at the mall.
5. I actually save money buying CAbi.
I have never had a CAbi party (although I keep toying with the idea). I buy my CAbi clothes at retail, which is not something I do very often. But for me, it's worth it to go shopping once, pick out the clothes I want, and then budget over the span of a couple of months to receive my new items. Because I'm no longer aimlessly walking around the mall, picking up clothes here and there, I save quite a bit of money by purchasing my go-to outfits from one designer. As I mentioned above, the clothes all coordinate so I always have lots to wear for any occasion and I no longer need to run to the store to pick up an outfit for a special occasion (which I always end up with something I don't really like and never wear twice).
I honestly do not have any financial interest in this company. I truly love their style, enjoy shopping with my CAbi consultant, and am a loyal customer. Here is their website to check out yourself:
