Fashion Friday: Spring 2012


I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!


Β  Β  Β It all starts with a great dress. I am the frugal fashion shopping diva. I love to find a good deal. I guess that is why I am Madame Deals. I do have a budget just $20 a week to spend on my wardrobe. I try to replicate what I see in all those wonderful magazines for less a lot less. I in fact get very upset when their steals are so much more than the top of my budget. In what world is $250 a steal for a sweater?

  1. Theresa Baichan says

    Totally agree, marketing thinks we women don’t have any idea of their tricks. Thank you for the insight:)

  2. Kaci McClellan Verdun says

    Great article, now that the weather is so nice out, i’m so ready for a new spring/summer wardrobe! Thanks for getting me in the mood πŸ™‚

  3. davonna dicks says

    Love all of your stuff. So many people miss out on great things by not shopping at discount stores or yard sales. Thanks for all your ideas.

  4. karenladd says

    It drives me crazy when I read articles in magazines that talk about dressing well for less and then they show items that are more than most people’s salary for a week!

  5. sandy w says

    i have paid over 150 for a sweater, i just really wanted it. i used to spend thousands on clothes. i was a real clothes horse growing up. i used to keep a calendar of what i wore everyday to school. i had matching shoes and bags for every outfit. some even had winter coats. i never wore the same thing 2 in a month in high school. i even dressed for college, never wore jeans…..i even dressed for work when there was no dress code. wore suits, etc. now, i hate shopping, my favorite outfits are shorts and very comfy clothes and tennis/sandals. i have a big closet full of clothes some with tags still on them….guess i inherited this trait from my mother. she was a real dresser and spent tons on clothes. my sister does the same thing but on a way grander scale. she will pay 450 for jeans, 80 for a t-shirt. and only shops at saks, bloomies, etc.

  6. Angela Hartness says

    I would love to find that dress at Belk for $9.98. Everyone is saying to wear bold, bright colors for spring, so I need to get some in my wardrobe.

  7. Rachel Robertson (Azrael) says

    Definitely time to to go through the closet! I have so many impulse buys hanging in there with the tags still on them πŸ™

  8. says

    Hi there, WOW great video and good hints tips and ideas. I love the yellow with the blue looks stunning. Im with you when it comes to updating wardrobes with just changing up wardrobes. Good job!!
    Coming by from another of your events.

  9. Veronica H says

    I never thought of having a small weekly budget for clothes. I think that’s a great way for me to expand my wardrobe without spending a a hundred dollars a time!!

  10. Dianna Thomas says

    Great article– There is no way I would as much as $250 for a sweater–for one season– I buy just a few items to add to what I already have– thanks for the tips

  11. Janene Scarborough says

    Oh wow $250 for a sweater? You know that could buy lots of food for my house lol I couldn’t do that ever.

  12. Sylvia Ortiz says

    I too am a “frugal” shopper when it comes to my wardrobe; I try to avoid shopping at malls and instead shop at swap meets and such.

  13. Tammy S says

    Great post! I agree that we need to clean out our closets because you see can’t see what you have. I love Plato’s Closet. I have found some killer deals!

  14. Catalina K says

    I often visit the websites of the more expensive departments stores looking for great sweater deals. I wait until my favorite items go on sale and purchase them for $9.50 – $12.00 a piece. I would never pay $250 on a sweater when I can have so many chances to refresh my wardrobe in a more savvy manner.

  15. Amanda Herren says

    This is my fashion tip, Alot of people get caught up with buying things just because they are on sale, something they would’nt have bought had it not been on sale or they find a shirt they like so they buy one in every color etc. That is not the best way to buy clothes, You end up with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. First of all, Only buy something that you love, buy staple items that you can mix and match to make several outfits out of. It is ok to spend money on your clothes as long as you love it!! Always have a nice, stylish pair of black slacks, neutral color pencil skirt, a nice blazer, a versatile cardigan, a nice pair of dark color jeans, stylish scarves etc These are things that are always in style and you can mix match to make different outfits. Example: Pair the jeans with the blazer to dress it up or dress the jeans up with cardigan to make it more casual. You get the picture. I could go on and on about this…..I LOVE FASHION!! This is the best fashion tip I could give. Thanks, Amanda H.

  16. Marthalynn says

    Loved this video! I am a rabid bargain hunter and I love designer items, but only if they are super inexpensive. I just got a pair of marc jacobs jeans at Bloomingdale’s for $35. That’s about what one would pay at Kohl’s or Sears!

  17. Holly Hook says

    Pretty much any given item in my wardrobe has been bought second hand or on sale. Yet everyone I know says I’m one of the best dressed people they know. I feel like accessories can really make the outfit, and they themselves can also be gotten for quite the bargain.

  18. laurie damrose says

    The best treasure I ever found in the hospital consignment shop was a brand new pair of New Balance white sneakers.It was sale month $2 for the sneakers which retailed for $60!

  19. Margaret says

    Great ideas! I love thrift store shopping because you can find a lot of treasures that just need a little TLC. I also will only replace an item in my closet if I can sell it on eBay or donate it to someone who needs it. πŸ™‚

  20. Andrea Hadfield says

    I would never spend $250 on any article of clothing, I don’t even spend that much total on myself in a year. Clearance and 2nd hand are my thing!!

  21. says

    My fashion tip:

    Don’t shop where you can’t afford to be shopping! If you can afford $250 for a sweater, whatever floats your boat. However, you can find GREAT fashion at great prices…Jcrew has a clearance store in my area that has warehouse clearance sales once a month. I just got $3000 worth of clothes for $300. THATS a fashion tip πŸ˜‰

  22. Lindsay Hagstrom says

    I would be sick if I spent $250 dollars on one item, none the less at one time on clothes. I shop at Wal-Mart it’s cheap and I can find some nice things.

  23. nicole strunk says

    I love to find outfits in magazines or catalogs and duplicate them using eBay, discount codes, and sales. It’s so great to dup an expensive outfit on the cheap!

  24. Doris Calvert says

    Great article! Never thought of a weekly budget, great idea, however at my age if I really want something that looks good and I love it and know I will get a lot of use out of it I will spend the money. When you are a plus size it’s hard to find clothes at a steal and it’s hard to find things that look good and are age appropriate so I think we tend to spend more money, also the clothes are way more expensive!

  25. Lean S says

    Completely agree! I have found so many great pieces of clothing made of great materials without having to spend a fortune.

  26. Tammy S says

    I love that the trend this Spring is to be bold and mix colors. I love bright colors! I think they help brighten up your mood. I also love to check out consignment stores like Plato’s Closet. You can find some really nice items if you take the time to look.

  27. Krystal Ramirez says

    Great info!! I agree clean out your closet, and get rid of clothes you don’t wear!! I always make sure to buy clearance so I can buy more then one outfit and still look good doing it!!

    • LaShelle Lee says

      i check out places that sell gently used clothes…like clothes mentor…and yardsellr is a nice site for all fashion needs and more

  28. Edna says

    I always check the clearance racks on department stores and also you should subscribe to your favorite stores by email and receive their coupons and offers.

  29. says

    I wouldnot be able to spend $250 dollars on one item! Even spending this much at one time is way too much for me. I shop at Wal-Mart it’s cheap and I can find some nice things.

  30. Amanda Alvarado says

    I have no sense of style so thank you for this. I would have never of thought of mixing the colors like you did! I am so set in the it has to match thinking! πŸ™‚

  31. says

    great way of thinking… I often shop off season clearance and buy in bigger sizes for the kids and grandkids next year-it is a great way to save money and be able to get them nice things that they want at an affordable price.

  32. says

    I agree… you can re-create a lot of the designer looks for much less. My best tip is to stick to your budget and not we swayed by ‘sales’ you may never use.

  33. Kelly D says

    I agree with getting rid of clothing items that you don’t use.. or any item for that matter. $20 a week for clothes seems do-able also.

  34. Tiffiny Palm says

    Great tips and ideas for spring! I have a hard time finding outfits like the one you shared at a great deal. Thank you for sharing!

  35. kristina says

    I am a good will shopper. My clothes for work get colored on and ruined too quickly to spend that much on clothes!!

  36. Brianna Beers says

    I agree, knowing what to shop for to put together a whole new look from a few pieces makes a whole lot of difference. Thank you for your tips!!

  37. Michelle Tucker says

    I can’t even imagine paying that much for any piece of clothing. Once, just once, I actually touched a purse that was 1300 and I still talk about it to this day. Hah. Loved the purse, but I could get an equally cute purse at goodwill.

  38. Dara Nix says

    GREAT article! I have bought AND sold clothing at consignment shops for years and LOVE it! I also find great deals at Garage Sales in some of the more “upscale” neighborhoods!

  39. Marlene V says

    I agree you don’t have to spend a fortune to look good. I have never heard of a clothing swap — sounds fun and economical.

  40. says

    Great blog post! I love the Blue Dress. I have paid a little bit for a piece of clothing that looked great, and a lot for clothing that didn’t look good. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it looks good! πŸ™‚

  41. says

    This is a great blog post! I love the Blue Dress. I have paid a little bit for a piece of clothing that looked great, and a lot for clothing that didn’t look good. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it looks good!

    *My Tip: Look on Ebay for clothing. They have GREAT Prices for clothes on there. πŸ™‚

  42. says

    I love shopping so I have set limits for the highest I am willing to pay for a certain item and if it costs more I will put it back and try to find it for less somewhere else. Great article, thanks for sharing!!

  43. Jill says

    I have more fun shopping at thrift stores than regular stores. It’s so fun to get a real deal. I can’t even bring myself to pay full price anymore.

    • Amy Brown says

      Fashion tip- I love to shop the clearance jewelry section at Kohl’s. The jewelry is often upwards of 80-90% off, and even tearing it apart to pin onto plain tees or add to old purses makes a whole new outfit.

  44. Sarah L says

    I wouldn’t know what to do with $20 a week for clothes. I shop at thrift stores every other month or so and spend $10 or so. I’d rather buy food.

  45. Angela B says

    I live near a Savers store, an incredible 2nd hand clothing store. I wait till Monday holidays and alot of times they have 50% off their already incredible deals.

  46. Kirsten says

    I keep hearing about clothing swaps. All my friends are different sizes and tastes so that wouldn’t work. Love consignment shops!

  47. patricia parsons says

    love your ideas and have convinced my 2 teen granddaughters that platos closet lets them have sooo many more clothes than 1 nice mall outfit thanks again

  48. karen j. says

    Mom always said wear your best clothes when you go shopping and she was right. I am a t-shirt and jeans girl and when I went into a big dept. store before a big party the sales ladies were falling all over me. To get inside info just dress up–obviously those who got, get!

  49. Paul T / Pauline T says

    We have Dillard’s clearance center here and prices are absolutely awesome…buying a $250 item for 80-90% off so I definitely agree with not spending lots of money on clothes

  50. says

    I wish i had $5.00 to spend on clothes but at the moment i don’t, however i do try and save up $5 and try and go to the Children’s Home where they have a yard sale every couple months where you can packa 13 gal trash bag with anything and everything that you can fit in it for $5. I usually end up getting things for all my grandkids and kids and forget about me.

  51. Holly Hennessy Swint says

    I was raised by a Yard sale Mom and taught to never pay full price for anything! I have passed this good practice down to my daughter! It’s good to buy classic pieces on sale or at thrift stores and then add trendy accessories as the styles change year to year.

  52. madison says

    ya that’s so smart!!!! I like to go to consigment/ second hand stores especially for my jewlery, it takes more time to find good stuff but its worth the time.

  53. says

    Thank U for the ideas!!!! If we really think about it, as women, it’s all pretty much common sense. We just have to think harder into things;)) Women are truly smarter than men, hahaha

  54. Tracy Simms says

    You hit the nail on the head! I first hop at consignments n thrift stores. I may go to Macy’s but it has to be a serious deal πŸ™‚ thanks

  55. Rosanne says

    I think women in in the entertainment industry in NYC think $250 is a bargain. They are not in touch with the rest of America.

  56. Victoria Comulada Squires says

    My daughter has a swap group on Facebook .It is a very nice group…Thank you… πŸ™‚

  57. Sheri L. says

    I can’t fathom paying that much for a sweater! I always shop the clearance racks and if I can, I use additional coupons πŸ™‚

  58. Biki says

    I would love to live in a world when $250 is a steal for any piece of clothing–especially if I’m paying for it! But since reality is ‘oh so kind’, I love the idea of a clothing swap. I’ve been doing it for pieces with friends who are about my size but it takes a while before I find a few great pieces.

  59. Seyma Shabbir says

    I would never pay $250 for a piece of clothing – anything! I was raised on a military fathers salary and now with 2 kids It is always better to save and pinch pennies. I love to shop at Marshalls or TJ Maxx for brand name at low prices!

  60. Donna George says

    I love Ross for the inexpensive clothes. You may have to look for awhile, but you can get some great stuff there.

  61. Amy says

    I am SO sick of seeing articles that say “Get the Look for Less!” or whatever and the prices are still ridiculous! In my world, we don’t spend that type of money on clothing. I like to look good, but I like my son to go to private school more.

  62. Mrs. Smitty says

    Not only are the “steals” way way way more expensive than I’d spend, they’re $250+ *per item*! It’s ridiculous!

  63. Christy Ann says

    As a young family just starting out, we have no money to spend on clothes, but I manage to dress great and follow the current styles. It helps that I love shopping and spend a lot of time deal-hunting, but I never buy any clothes full price – ever. My favorite thing to do is thrift-store hunting (styles go in and out, I guarantee you can find trendy stuff), and then there are the discount & outlet stores, and online daily deal sites.

  64. Brianne Libby says

    Oh and my favorite fashion tip is to shop off season! I know everyone wants to buy comfy sweaters and boots in the fall and bathing suits and sundresses in the spring, but when I reverse that I find AWESOME deals. Obviously this doesn’t work for trends that will go out of style by next season, but I stock up on basics this way every year. Last week I bought an adorable sweater from Abercrombie and Fitch that was originally $80…and I only spent $12!

  65. Heidi S. says

    Great ideas! I always like to check the discount stores before I go to any name brand places. They are a great way to spend money, especially when it comes to school shopping for my daughter. My husband I and both buy all of our stuff at discount stores. We have found that the trick isn’t to go in looking for a specific item, it is to buy the deals that are too great to pass up when you see them because the next time you go it won’t be there anymore.

  66. carolynn ferraro-king says

    I always go right for the clearance rack first. I love that and especially when I have a coupon. You can pay next to nothing..

  67. tamar says

    I have never hosted a clothing swap. I don’t fit into any of my friends’ clothes, so it seems.

    I have never heard of anyone doing it among my friends, but I’ve heard about them for a long time!!

  68. Susan D'Alesandro Wilder says

    I agree! Even if I had that kind of money, I would NEVER spend $250 for a sweater1 Great video.~!! That dress was a steal for $9.98. And she is exactly right, don’t match blue, with blue, with blue….how BORING!

  69. Dani says

    I do a lot of shopping at second hand stores. I always take me time to really examine the clothes before purchasing and I often find brand new clothes hanging on the racks.

  70. Kelly Burroughs Crowell says

    I can’t live without my bargains at Goodwill and other resale stores!! You can find some amazing stuff there πŸ™‚

  71. says

    Hi, loved your video. I’m envious because you look like anything would look good on you. Me, I have to really search. But, I don’t spend a lot on my clothes because I am always shopping the deep discount racks. I love buying my clothes at Macy’s and Lord & Taylors because they have great sales and discount racks plus coupons. So I get excited when I get a brand name like Ralph Loren, Jone of NY, Tommy Hilfiger, INC, etc for 75% to 80% off.

  72. Kara Locke says

    Love your ideas! I love high heals! I’m not really fashion savy but i think I can put together a pretty good outfit.

  73. says

    I don’t thrift shop as much as I would like to. Its just so overwhelming to me but I do love Marshalls and TJ MAXX. I find the best deals there and I stick to a small budget and only pick staples usually. I bought white skinny jeans for 14.99 there the other day. I was soo excited. So my fashion tips are

  74. Cindy Westerhaus says

    With teen and tween daughters, there is no way any of us can spend tons on clothes. So we shop around, use coupons and hit consignment stores. Second hand stores are awesome because we don’t look like cookie cutters of everyone else.

  75. Sheralle D. says

    I need to set aside an amount each week or two weeks so that I can get my wardrobe back to where it used to be.

  76. Kathy Ross says

    Wear what you’re comfortable in, not what you think looks good. Shop thrift and consignment stores for cool clothes and low prices.

  77. Jude Skocki Kelly says

    I shop at thrift stores for clothing. Most items cost any where from $1 to $5. A $20 budget would get me a few days worth of clothes. πŸ™‚

  78. april yedinak says

    I think shopping thrift and vintage is a great way to get some of the nicer, high quality items at an affordable price. Sometimes cheap clothes at discount stores are not a bargain- poor fit and tailoring, fabric imperfections and items that just fall apart after a couple of wears.

  79. Kelly A. Tanner says

    I also love me a good thrift store! You just can’t get better deals anywhere else! Thanks for the advice! I’m definitely stingy with my fashion $$$.

  80. Gretchen Gerth says

    My only fashion tip is to be comfortable with yourself, if you are comfortable then you look 100% better.

  81. Kathy Ross says

    I’m not much of a fashion buff. But i do agree-get rid of what you don’t wear! Most of my clothes come from yard sales and Goodwill. I can find some pretty nice clothes for cheap.

  82. Tracy Awalt Juliano says

    You are so right! My closet is so packed full of clothes that I often forget what I even own. It is in desperate need of a purging…

  83. Joanna from NH says

    These are great insights. Thank you! How can people not feel strange about spending $250 on a sweater?

  84. says

    I agree. I always try to donate my gently used clothes to thrift shops and I often shop at places like My sisters closet where there are donated clothes and the sale from the proceeds go to our crime victim center for victims of rape or the city mission where proceeds go to the homeless.

  85. says

    I have a hard time getting rid of clothes that I do not wear. There are some great pieces of dressy items that I need to incorporate into my daily style. I love getting good deals on clothing. I have found some very nice items that look expensive for very little money@

  86. says

    I think it’s a mix – everyone has different priorities in clothing, so something that seems like a waste of money to one person might be something that another wears every day. I think the key is to know yourself and only splurge on stuff that you know will last and you will love – for everything else, deals are the way to go!

  87. Rebecca Parsons says

    I’m a deal shopper and I annoy my husband with it. But I can justify spending an arm and a leg on clothes. I used to be reckless when I was young and spent like crazy. Now I have 3 girls who do a clothes swap among each other to keep things different for each of them.

  88. Christie B says

    Love that you get a kick out of a deal like I do! I am a big donator! I refuse to throw away my clothes that I no longer wear especially because I try to keep them as nice as possible.

  89. Char W says

    Great tips! Clothing swaps are good when you are like sized. And I agree that $250 for a sweater is ridiculous. Once when in college, a friend and I went to a mall. We walked into a store cause it said “75% off sale” in the window (I don’t remember what the store name was any more). Well, when we looked at the prices, it was $300 for a dress, which at 75% off was still more than I would pay.

  90. Connie Smith says

    I think a lot of great deals are to be found online. Blogs like yours help to find the great deals out there just waiting for us!

  91. sandie parsons says

    I agree. i paid attention to fashion for years when I worked, now I’m retired so I stick with classic basics. I watch sales but only buy what I love. I watch the 2nd hand stores for classix pieces.

  92. Andrea says

    My number one fashion tip is that you have to feel good in what you are wearing. Sometimes you have to take the latest trends & use them to make them suit you.

  93. Sandra Brower says

    Great video! It was very affirming. I don’t have occasion right now to do a lot of dressing up so I am getting ready to consign or sell out right some of my very nice dresses, suits and assorted clothing. I will have fun turning it around to buy a few things to fit my current life style and enjoy a little casual chic instead of the corporate uniform and probably have a little monthly wardrobe money put aside for when the seasons change. Thank you for the tips and information.

  94. Rebecca says

    $250 for a sweater?? No way! I love finding things on sale or secondhand. If I spend less on each piece, I have more money to spend on other things!

  95. Cynthia R says

    i actually buy nearly 80 percent of my clothes at goodwills and thrift stores, i can’t stand buying full price for anything

  96. Jude Skocki Kelly says

    I just saw an feature in Cosmo, I think it was titled fashion on a budget. Anyway, all of the item were reasonably priced with the exception of a $240.00 belt! I was floored!

  97. Jessica sheffield says

    Argh… 250… I’ve never paid that much for any clothing item. Even my phone I didn’t pay that much for! Actually aside from my car and lap top I don’t think anything I own cost that much (or more lol).

  98. Jennifer P says

    Great post. I’m going to weed my closet today! It is true clothes you don’t wear hide your inspiration!

  99. chelesa sims says

    i agree. i would much rather go to garage sales and second stores. Youd be amazed at what they have at second hand stores and who knows it is second hand but you

  100. jenn says

    liked the sparkle shoes with the dress but I would never wear the fishing jacket with that frilly dress

  101. Cori Greene says

    I can honestly say I wouldn’t pay $250 for 5 sweaters!! If you shop out of season you also can get great deals.

  102. bonnie peeling says

    My tip is to wear what makes you feel good and don’t be afraid to wear one piece of jewelry that is a statement piece.

  103. says

    I agree! I could take my family on a mini vacation for $250! My biggest fashion tip is, don’t be afraid to buy used!! I have found most of my favorite pieces at thrift stores and garage sales. Those $250 sweaters? Yes, I have found them there also! Some people get rid of or donate their clothes once they go out of season, or after they have worn them one time!
    Angela Michels

  104. Tasia says

    I love that you made this video! I go to thrift stores twice a week to look for all types of things, including new clothes/shoes/jewelry for my wardrobe! I like that you can find unique things there that no one else will have.

  105. Devona Fryer says

    I am plus size so I don’t even know where or how to start a plus size clothing swap, but I love the idea. My favorite fashion tip is to add a scarf to any outfit and it transforms that outfit and makes it feel all new and it’s so trendy right now.

  106. Krista Keener says

    thrift stores and the goodwill are awesome places to grab nice things when you know when to go. today i got some super cute black and pink pumps from my local thrift store fore $2 πŸ™‚

  107. Keri VanNuland says

    Here too… I wear plus size tops 18 or so and 12/14 pants and it is so hard to find anything stylish! If I go into a store for plus sized I find HUGE FLOWERS on everything at that is so NOT ME!! SO, I end up wearing tight jeans and baggy tshirts. πŸ™

  108. Angel Poling says

    I would feel sick to my stomach if I ever spent that much on a sweater, or any clothes for that mattter, because nothing is forever, and paying that much for something you’ll probably only wear a few times? No thank you. I have a kid that I can save that 400.00 for.

  109. Jessica c says

    i round up clothes i haven’t worn for at least a year and get ride of them because i know i dont like then that much!

  110. Cindy B says

    I live in a small town so it’s sometimes difficult to get great stuff in my size… if I had more friends in a size similar to mine I would organize a swap… it’s a great idea, though. πŸ™‚

  111. betsy cortez says

    I have twin 17 year old daughters so have to buy twice the clothing, shoes and underwear. We shop the clearance racks in department stores, go to outlets and consignment shops. Latest best find was a pair of lined wool slacks at Ann Taylor for $3.99 plus $15 to have them shortened for my daughter.

  112. says

    I also have a tight budget and can’t spend much on clothing. Lately I have been shopping at thrift stores. You can usually find coupons for thrift stores in weekly ads and newspapers here. Some coupons are up to 50% off a purchase, so that really helps out. You can find some amazing deals there.

  113. Mary O. says

    My fashion tip is mix your bright colored clothes, this spring bright/ neon clothes are definitely in and they all go well together!

  114. Crystal Kelley says

    Im going to be honest i have a small budget to put towards fashion, so im not always up to date with it , but i love fashion!!

  115. Stephanie says

    Great! I love fashion too. I try to swap or borrow clothes from friends or my sister. It keeps all of our closets trendy, but with out laying down big bucks!

  116. Alondra Ramirez says

    A sweater for $250 is way too much to waste for that price I think the most I’d waste would be $30

  117. kimbuckjr says

    I’m with all the other respondents, I would NOT pay $250.00 for a sweater. I wouldn’t even pay $25.00 for a sweater that I didn’t have a coupon for. I usually shop at The Avenue and I get emailed coupons on a regular basis and I ONLY shop when I receive those coupons. I live on a very tight budget so EVERY SINGLE penny (even peso) counts!

    I totally agree! I’m not sure where $250 is a bargain anywhere, but I love to shop at consignment stores and look for items that don’t look like they’ve been worn at all. I just look for simple pieces to put with what I already have. If I have a coupon (I usually do), I will shop at Kohl’s – I love their prices. Thank you so much for this post!
