Outfit Challenge: Under $45!

Kids are expensive!  I'm definitely on a budget, but I still want to look good.  It's hard to find a chic and complete outfit for under $45... unless you have a great eye and a lot of time to scour the racks (and a lot of motivation!).  Check out this cool ensemble featuring the best bargains at Kmart Fashion!   

 


Shop the look:

Attention Ponte Leather Trim Dress

Jaclyn Smith Wristlet

Attention Wire Earrings 

Sofia by Sofia Vergara Heels

Elf Smoking Hot Nail Polish


How do you get great outfits on a budget?

I buy clothes out of season when they are on clearance.

All the KMart clearance clothes are 50% off and shortly they will go down to $2.99 an item. I always buy off season. I plan to go in Saturday when i get paid to buy a couple shirts for $2.80 each. I already put a ton of clothes on layaway for my kids

Well if you buy versatile clothing that can be used more than once you save a ton of money right there.

I wouldn't buy most of the stuff in that picture, I own heels (1 brown pair, 1 black pair -that covers every dressed up situation). I own TONS of earrings, I wouldn't buy a wristlet to go with one outfit.  So I MIGHT buy the dress, but I don't wear dresses so probably not.

Jeans are awesome you can dress them up or down and they never go out of style.

Tunics with leggings, both cheap, always in style.

If I want something trendy that I'll only wear for a season, I go to Forever 21, their clothes are DIRT cheap and it's all super trendy stuff. Otherwise I stick to basics.
