I have been wanting to post this for some time, so I finally got to it today. I recently went to a conference and I knew that I wanted to look cute and get some new clothes, but I also knew that my budget was not in a very good mood. I had been chatting with my best friend Meghan who kept telling me all of the fantastic shopping she had done at Savers and found so many cute items for herself and her two adorable boys.
I had nothing to lose, so I checked it out. I decided that if I wanted new clothes, I would have to do it on a very strict budget of around $100. That was still stretching out the budget for the month, especially because it is not cheap to travel to conferences as most of you know. There are so many costs involved; the conference itself, flights, food, hotel. Luckily for me, I went to an amazing conference (Alt Summit) that was in Salt Lake City and my parents live there, so that saved me bucko bucks right there. So after conversing with the hubs, we agreed that I could spend $100.00 on new clothes. In many cases when it comes to shopping for new clothes, $100.00 won’t get you very far. Maybe an outfit and that doesn’t include shoes.
So, I was out for an adventure to see what I could get and a very tight purse string. I knew the only way I was getting anything would be to thrift my way to a couple new outfits for my conference wardrobe.
The stores I went to were:
Last Chance (Nordstrom’s clearance store, even cheaper than Nordstrom Rack!)
Here are my outfits that I bought for my conference:

I am an avid thrifter. I was reluctant at first but once I got the hang of it thats the only place I shop. You did great for mixing and matchin! Macys, Target, and Marshalls have the best stuff on clearance
Oooh I am major jeal of the sparkle top. Next time you find one like that get it for me and I will pay you back! Savers is THE BEST and all of your outfits are freaking so cute! Love them bee eff and can’t wait til I get to PHX soon and we can go to Last Chance every single day! xxoo

Thanks ladies. It is hard to get a lot of clothes for a little money. I am all about stores like Tj Maxx and Ross, but I think I am missing out a lot when it comes to getting a good deal and some great clothes.
