Party Chic for Cheap
In this circus of an economy, how does the modern day Frugalista stay fabulous ???? She is on a strict budget!!! That means its all about Steals and Deals, waiting for those platform pumps to go on sale, and when it comes to her budding social life , its all about cheap party dresses. There is no rule etched in stone that expensive is the only way to go. I also find it more of a challenge when shopping on a budget, and not only finding that perfect dress, but making that dress look like its worth hundreds of dollars yet you only paid 45 dollars!!!! This two tone dress (above) with the prints / solid combination is very fun, with the right hair/make-up and accessories - it can totally pass for something out of a boutique. The black pencil dress is very elegant, black has that ever so chic effect - that's why the LBD (little black dress) is always a good choice when shopping on a budget. Whether the LBD is $200 or $20, you can bring up the luxury factor. Last but not least for my favorite dresses on a budget series of favorite looks is this white sheath dress (pictured, middle)- it screams vacation, and it has a clean crisp look, no one would know this dress retails for under $100. With that said, there you have it, party dresses for the Frugalista!
