How much traffic do you have in an average month and what do you know about your audience?

What research have you done into merchants who have products that your users might be interested in?

You need to know your subject, know your products and know your visitors.

I have had two sites which had affiliate links, one worked and one didn't. The first had a strong dialogue with regular visitors. They were happy to "pay their dues" for ther site by purchasing through the links. Despite being a music site the bulk of purchases were for non music products. The other site had better traffic but far more one-off visits and little dialogue with the visitors, I ended up taking off most of the links to and rely for more on Adsense.

@rubywang, welcome! (I see you've been lurking for a bit). I hope you've lurked long enough to get through the rest of this reply:

I get down on hands and knees,
circle three times and shriek
"Send me Money! Send me Money!"

That part above is humor, as there is no way any can advise you how to make money. Your niche (fashion) is low bucks at best, unless you can show Madonna and Kim Kardashian or Brad Pitt and George Clooney wearing your apparel, and they say they are, and the products actually have true (known) value in material and manufacture, preferably from your own production. If you are a reseller of other product you're toast.

MEANWHILE, continue your site, find local merchants who will offer your products, and expand from there, hopefully with back links from their websites.

Only shortcut I know (and it is short lived): Invest something like $100k USA in radio, tv and newspaper advertising. Else, it is a hard row to hoe. It will take time and patience to build your brand. There are no true shortcuts.

Not a bearer of bad news, just telling the truth as you are, at this time, just one of a few billion or so sites on the web, and if you are new, you're at the bottom of the list and need something more than a site/host/dns and some code/pics to get known.

Your fashions best be amazing in a way that makes news sites take notice because a t-shirt is a t-shirt and jeans are jeans (or evening gowns or tuxedos).

That's the bucket of water on your head to wake you up.

Read back through the above, there's some good advice there.

Oh, Affiliate don't pay much. Never has.

It's rather pretty simple. You own a fashion site, you never went into detail about what type. Let's say for example you write about the latest fashion shoes for women, great... So on this page you have lots of women reading about the shoes and looking at the images, now all you want to do is link to retailers who sell these same shoes. Bingo. Simply sign up to retailers who run an affiliate program and start promoting.

It helps if you can run a price comparison too. So for example retailer A sells the shoes for 89.99 but retailer B sells the same pair at 67.99, by displaying this info you will be sure to drive traffic and sales to retailer B.

To be honest, it's strange you started any site without any sort of business plan in the first place.
