Ann Taylor Loft and H&M on a Budget

Amee is teaching me how to shop for designer and quality clothes on a budget. I have always been cautious of spending money on clothes. I never thought I would be able to afford designer or name brand clothes. Thanks to Amee, I have a whole new wardrobe for less than $50 and most of them are designer and name brand.
