Fall/Winter Fashions Under $150

How many times have you opened your closet when the season changes and realized you have nothing to wear?  When the weather first started turning chilly back in September 2010 I tried on every pair of pants in my closet only to discover I had like three pair that still fit. I started window shopping at two of my favorite stores, New York and Company and The Limited. I can’t believe I used to spend that much money on pants! Even with sales and/or coupons I was looking at spending at least $50 for two pair of pants in NY&CO and at least $80 for two pair of pants in The Limited! So I began my search in thrift and consignment stores. Along the way I picked up a few additional must haves (I just couldn’t resist those black pumps!) to complete my fall/winter wardrobe. When I added it all up, I purchased 15 name brand items (Yes, George from Wal-Mart is name brand) for less than $150. Don’t believe me? Check out the breakdown:
