The picture in here shows my dress - Can you guess how much money I spent on the whole outfit? $100. Yes, I got a new dress, new shoes, earrings, and braceletes for that amount of money. The best thing about is that everything I got I can wear again and combine for other uses. The dress can be used with a belt to make it look different, the shoes can complete a casual jeans outfit, or be used for a night of partying. Earrings are very boho chic, so I'll be using them with beach looks (shorts and sandals) and the braceletes are colorful and can also be used for boho chic looks.
You still need to be careful and dont forget that you get what you pay for. BUT that doesn't mean you can't find good bargains, take extra care of your clothes so they last you forever, and learn how to combine items so you always have a new outfit to wear. Dont forget hair and makeup play a very important part too. Learn how to maximize your dollar and you may even have some money left to buy me a drink next time I see you... lol . Happy shopping! : )
