The girl on a budget.....

     With the economy the way it is going either you are broke or being frugal.   Last week I went shopping for household items at Wal-Mart while browsing I saw a large section of t-shirts that were priced down to $4.00 from $5.00, being the one that is a compulsive shopper i bought one.  My sister was with me and she looked at me like I was crazy, however I already had in mind how I was going to wear it.  My plans on how to wear were soon changed as soon as I saw a a beautiful silk scarf for only $4.88, by this time my sister really thought I was delirious.  Not caring I went for the purchase and made my way to pay and leave the store very happy.

    On Monday I immediately wore those two items together without one doubt that the outfit would not work.  I paired these two great finds with a pair of white wide leg trousers, brown blazer and a pair of navy open shoes with a wooden heel that have an awesome button on the side. 

                                      (blazer is not photographed due to it being at the cleaners)

   The final touches to an outfit are the accessories and I used these and my awesome coach summer purse!

   The magic of making heads turn while wearing in outfit has nothing to do with brands or price tag its all about pairing them with the right clothes.  If you are currently going through financial problems be assured that it does not matter where you buy your clothes its about using creativity to mix your pieces and confidence in yourself!
