Budgeting your Style

The Responsible Wardrobe.... 

I gained 15 pounds. ​

In desperate need of a new wardrobe that accommodated my spreading hips, I headed to Goodwill for a $2 dollar clothing sale. I scored silk blouses, tweed skirts, and an Armani Cashmere sweater. I budgeted for $80 and spent only $64!
Winning this shopping lottery was the result of visiting 4 Goodwill stores within 24 hours and sifting through wardrobe nightmares to find gems. I dedicated about 8.5 hours in total to shopping.

You don’t have to do this. 

If time is money and I monetize my time at $150 per hour, my new fall wardrobe cost $1,339.  That is still a bargain considering the quality and quantity of my haul.

What I would suggest you do is create a Fall Wardrobe budget. Adding pieces to your wardrobe that exemplify what you already own. It could be adding one luxury item or several new trendy pieces. Whatever you decide is best for you, honor your choice and stick to your budget. 

Here's some suggestions for a $1000 budget:
