How To Look Expensive: An Introduction

I have decided that I want to devote one or several posts to "How to Look Expensive," or how to look like you spend more on clothes than you really do. We covered some basics in the Budget Wardrobe Building series, but I want to get even more fundamental and talk in terms of creating individual outfits.

This series is for all who read this blog. For the broke college students, and the often equally broke new grads trying to break into a profession. For the moms trying to live balanced, beautiful lives amidst lots of responsibility and not so much money. For the white collar wife whose husband's above average salary is offset by eight children, student loans, and her decision to stay home and raise said children. This series is for all of these smart women who need to look good but can't or won't break the bank to do so.

This series isn't about keeping up with the Joneses. This series isn't about being a snob, or about ditching your fashion personality to become this lady:


No offense, Jackie. It is about being the best grown up, classy, elegant version of yourself. Interested? Stay tuned for more!


  1. Great idea Mary, I'm excited to find out more!

  2. I'm interested. Anxiously waiting for more.

  3. And how to pacify three busy children while one shops - especially when one thrift shops!! :)


Please leave me a comment. If you don't blog, you may not realize that comments to a blogger are like sunshine to the whole of the photosynthesizing world. What I'm saying is, each comment means a lot! P.S. If you have an email connected to your profile, I'll most likely respond there.
