For off beat styles and value for money, try some clothing, especially long skirts and bags at http://www.thelittlebazaar.com. They have got a very unique collection of skirts - some of those designs are like what you find at urban outfitter for 70 bucks, when you can find them for way under 30 from http://www.thelittlebazaar.com.
For those who don't know BR is having a coupon sale right now. See their website; it also works at the store. This ends Sat. but they're starting another one Sun. (15% off or 20 if you have the credit card.)
Another thought that dawned on me-- you can go a long way with polish. I think that you can look fab without spending much on clothes as long as you pay attention to the polish details-- fit, pant length, hair, cleanliness, ironing, etc. Angie has a blog post on this.
Brilliant point, Patience.
Thanks for the tip on buying bras online, Nicole. I’ll definitely try that since the one good bra I have cost me over $80. That’s almost the whole month’s budget for the two of us!
And thank you so much for the websites Tanya. Those will deftly help when I know my size well enough to make online purchases with confidence.
Thanks for you input Maya. Making a physical list and prioritizing it should help. Someday I’ll try your ebay methods when I know my size in various brands.
I missed the BR sale, because I haven’t been on this site much lately. I have too many research papers right now and don’t have a lot of free time.
Thank you everyone for all of your helpful suggestions.
