I just wanted to draw your attention to a new link over on the right. Under Misc. I have added Budget Babe, a great site I found months ago and then sadly lost track of for a while.
This site has a great knack for finding less expensive or just plain affordable versions of outfits seen in magazine, on high-end retail sites, or on TV. Maybe the outfit you saw in a magazine isn't even that expensive but you don't have access to the store, the B-Babe might put together a combination of separates from all different stores that would still give you the look.
I am surprised and baffled by how much time she must spend on her searches to find this stuff but I am very glad that she does.
So go and check her out.
