Debra Messing refuses to pay full price when shopping for clothes.
The actress, perhaps best known for playing Grace Adler on NBC sitcom Will & Grace, always looks super chic on the red carpet in designer ensembles.
However, Debra has now shared that she never spends a lot on outfits for herself and always heads to the sale rack first when browsing in boutiques.
“Honestly, I rarely spend a lot on clothes because I refuse to pay full price,” she told U.S. InStyle. “I just won’t walk into a store and buy something full-priced anymore. That’s just a rule of mine, especially now that there are so many apps where designer brands are marked down quickly.”
Though Debra is opposed to spending large amounts on her wardrobe, she is more open to investing in accessories.
For instance, she will splash the cash when it comes to shoes and jewellery pieces that she knows she will wear for many years.
“I will splurge on shoes and jewellery. I save up for pieces of jewellery, actually, and I recently bought an emerald ring. It was a gift to myself, an early birthday present. It’s something that I’ve wanted forever, and I thought, ‘What am I waiting for? Am I waiting for a man to buy it for me?’ I realised how silly that was, so I bought it for myself,” the 49-year-old shared.
Thrifty Debra has acted as one of the faces of T.J. Maxx’s The Maxx You Project, which is aimed at bringing women together to empower one other about their unique fashion choices. And she explained that partnering with the U.S. discount retailer felt like a natural step as she has been shopping at their stores for years.
“I grew up shopping at T.J. Maxx in Rhode Island with my mother every other week,” she recalled. “We would go treasure hunting, and I was competitive about it. I always felt so excited when I found something that I loved.”
