  • $0... there is no money in the budget for clothes... I wear the same things all year around. I haven't bought new clothes since I lost my job in 07....

  • I usually only spend about $100 on new clothes. This year I spent a bit more because I've been pregnant for the last two years and nothing fits anymore! I'm mostly a SAHM and my "work" requires pretty casual clothes so I don't need much fancy stuff.
    This year I bought:
    1 pair of jeans
    new boots
    a cardigan
    2 tanks

  • I'm most likely not going to bother this year because I'm "great with child"
    Otherwise, I like to shop at Bass, Ann Taylor, J Crew, Banana Republic- at an outlet though (better deals)... I also usually go at the end of the season when things are on sale...
    I can buy a ton of clothes for $100!

  • I'll get some jeans, sweaters, maybe a few fall dresses. it really depends on what I like in the stores :) Macy's is my favorite, I like their INC line. I may get some cool scarves this year, maybe some dress boots. Sometimes I spend a few hundred dollars, sometimes more, it just depends on what I need.

  • I really cannot afford to replace wardrobe on a seasonal basis. When I need something new, I go pick up a few items. I never spend more than $100 because I think it's just senseless.

  • Crucial fall pieces for this fall: I'm in search for the perfect boots. I'm buying cute blazers and a few new pairs of jeans. Plus cardigans and some floral and printed tops to go under the blazers. I also love scarves so I'll get one or two more of those. And gloves, I lost my awesome leather gloves this past winter. I love banana republic, jcrew and urban outfitters for accessories. I love to shop so I probably spend too much on a new fall wardrobe!

  • I have to have new boots. lol
    umm, i'm probably going to get two new pairs of skinny jeans, maybe some leggings, idk yet ive never worn them.
    some new tanks and a couple of nice tops. i'm probably going to use my same jacket again this year.

    maybe a couple of dresses or two to go with the leggings if i get them.

  • i forgot to answer the rest. I'll probably spend TOOOOO much money.
    I usually shop everywhere. I see myself frequenting American Eagle and Pacsun every winter though. I want to go to target though. They have really nice boots online and nice skinny jeans for only 18 bucks!
