I have always been a bargain shopper.... Even if I were wealthy I would feel great guilt in spending alot on clothing & restaraunts because there are so many people in need... like to me a pair of jeans that cost more than $20.00 is ridiculously unneccesary. Even though I can appreciate style and nice materials and construction.... paying too much mind to name brands is very superficial...when there are far more important things in this world to be concerned with... If I buy brand new it is usually on clearance racks and also out of season... and I also love resale shops and garage sales... and being that I am creative and a bit bohemian in my style, I get alot of compliments for the way I dress... They don't know unless I tell them that I bought my shoes (that they love) for $4.00 ;-) Even if I had a date for a high profile event(not that I would), I would opt for vintage wear and not red carpet designer.

.. I cannot believe the amount of money people spend on clothes.. and that does not mean...lack of creativity or style..
it's about priorities... and before I spend 1000's on a dress for one evening as an actor for example... I would prefer to spend that money on charity... in fact I would give most of it to charity. :-) I think it's time that the superficiality of our nation was put in check.. and that we pay more attention to real needs and not appearances. :-) I have alot of fun bargain hunting.... it really is fun to be "fashionable" on a dime.... I take great pride in looking great for next to nothing...
