Shopping on a budget can be very difficult and frustrating, especially if you have expensive taste and want everything (yes, I am referring to myself). Ever since I became a graduate student (going on 2.5 years), I have been forced to shop on a tighter budget. While there are items that I have splurged on here and there, I have found that I will always try to get the best value for my money on all my purchases (i.e. wait for it to go on sale, get a price adjustment if the price drops even more, use my student discount, and look for it on eBay for a lower price). Most of the time, I usually wait for the things that I want to go on sale, because 99% of the time, everything goes on sale at one point or another. For today’s post, I put together four outfits (minus the shoes) that work well for us babes on a budget. All items are under $100 (most top out around $50) so you can give your wallet a much needed break from the holiday season. Some of my favorite budget friendly retails stores are H&M, J Crew’s sale section, Zara, Topshop, Nordstrom’s Savvy and T.B.D. sections, and Piperlime’s “Chic Steals” section. Happy shopping and, as always, thanks for stopping by!
