Cheap Fashion Finds

Hi Friends!!  I have something really fun to talk to you about today.

CHEAP Fashion Finds!!

I love to put together cute outfits, but don't want to spend a ton of money doing it.

I like to find things that are trendy and things that are classic.

I'll invest in shoes, nice earrings or closet staple items that I will wear for years like jeans or jackets.

I will spend a lot less on trendy items.

Today I'm going to share with you some trendy things that I've found for really cheap!!

Think: plaids, chambray, olive green and embroidered items!

#1 Embroidered Chambray
I was doing some grocery shopping last week and spotted some cute button downs at WAL-MART.  Yes, Wal-Mart.  I went to take a closer look and saw that there were lots of cute options for either $12 or $15.  I tried some on and decided on the two that fit me the best.  When I went to check out this chambray top rang up for only $3!!!!!!!!!!!  It has rose gold buttons and is embroidered on the front and back.  RUN to you nearest Walmart to find one for yourself.  It's Faded Glory and several of my friends have found it after I posted it on instagram.



#2 Scarves & Accessories
I picked up this scarf for $11 at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  It sold out a few times, but eventually my order went through.  In the past I ignored the Nordstrom sale because it's not a place I shop a ton.  This year I kept my eyes peeled for great deals and then bought a few extra to give as gifts.  I love it with this striped olive top.  It's from Target last year.

#3 Utility Vest
I wear mine a ton and it was under $20 at SAMS last year!  I'd highly encourage you to check out the clothes at Sams Club.  They usually have some really great pieces for under $20.  I HATE that they don't have dressing rooms so I usually just look at their tops and try them on over my clothes.  I've been known to head to the vision center to use their mirror to see how things look.

#4 Skinnies
I picked up these skinny pants/jeggings at WAL-MART earlier this season.  I bought them in black, olive and mauve.  And the best part... they rang up for $11 and $7!!  They're really comfy, SO CHEAP and I get tons of compliments on them when I wear them.  Definitely a fun addition to my closet for Fall and Winter.  They don't zip, just slide right on.

#5 Plaids
I've been on the hunt for a new plaid or two to add to my closet this year.  I wanted it to be light weight, pretty colors and something I could layer with.  This plaid caught my eye immediately and was only $12.94 at WAL-MART!  I was tempted to buy a second one at that price, but I'm trying hard to only buy things I love.  And I only LOVED this plaid.


So the moral of the story is... look for clothes deals in unexpected places like Wal-Mart, save your splurges for high quality pieces and spend less on fun, trendy items!!  I know not everyone loves Wal-Mart, so keep your eyes peeled at places like Meijer or Target for great clearance or sales.

  1. I have found some of my favorite clothes at Walmart. And they have lasted for years, to contradict what some folks say about buying cheaper clothes. I love that last plaid shirt. I'm going to look for it the next time I go!

  2. I totally found the chambray top too, but they didn't have it in my size. Whomp, whomp, whomp. I have been kind of grounded from buying clothes lately anyways. I keep telling myself that after Christmas I can pick up a few new things. LOVE your shares Whitney.

  3. Great finds!! I always love to see what you're wearing - you always look so cute! I love those olive skinnies on you, and your new plaid top is perfection. Even when I do buy shirts at Nordstrom they don't last any longer than my Taget clothing (I don't buy the high end stuff, that might be why). But last spring I splurged on a striped shirt from jcrew and it's already been given away bc it looked too worn out. I'm all for spending $12 at Walmart instead!

  4. Cute picks! I always browse Wal-mart; it's a great place to find trendy stuff that you don't want to pay a lot for or basics that you know you'll replace every year (hello tank tops!). I love the colored skinnies....do you have a link? I can't seem to find them?

  5. I will have to check out the skinny jeans! I'm all about not having suck in & zip! :) I've recently downsized my wardrobe, and have scarves and jewelry that I need to accessorize better. You have a knack for finding good deals.
