The Look For Less - Hilary Duff

In My Closet ..

Ever since I started my own business, I have been making more and more trips to Sam's Club recently. One particular item that caught my eye was this rolling cart. I thought that it would be perfect storage for my beauty and hair products. I can store everything at one place. From make-up to hair accessories to night creams and lotions. 

This item was only $29.99.

I am a huge fan of the leopard print. I love paring it with an all black outfit or red mini dress. I found these babies at Burlington Coat Factory of all places for.

This is my absolute favorite item. Febreze Suit covers that come with refreshing inserts. They are pretty big, so instead of a suit I was able to fit about three jackets in each. It keeps my closet looking organized, but most importantly it keeps my clothes protected. Only $2 each.

Luxury - Black & White

A couple of pricey pieces that I wouldn't mind owning if they were not ...well, pricey!

Get that .. Queen of Hearts Sweater

I prefer Taylor's version here. She dressed her heart sweater with dark blue skinny jeans and oxfords. The color palate works well. Jennifer's outfit it way too casual for her rich, what looks like python, chain purse.

Halloween Costume - Jessica Rabbit

The whole purpose of doing these Halloween costumes for less is to hopefully inspire some you and think out of the box when choosing your Halloween costumer this year. I don't want to see any more sexy nurses, police officers .. well you get the idea.

Below is a really cool make-up tutorial video by Jessica Harlow.

In My Closet ..

I picked up a few things this morning at my local TJ Maxx and Marshalls that I wanted to share with you. As you know, I am obsessed with these two stores. Why pay more when you can get it for less, right?

Christian Audigier  Gypsy Clutch from TJ Maxx for $59.99, Org. for $117.

MICHAEL by Michael Kors Studded Sandals at Marshalls on sale for $25.
I have some pink and red items that i can wear these with.

My favorite. I've been looking for a long chain purse for a while now. This one is by BCBG org. price $148, I got it on sale for $20, because the clasp is not working.

I am not big on make up at all. I just recently learned how to do my eyes. I thought this was really nice palate for a beginner. I bought it at Tj Maxx and it's from E.L.F (Eyes, Face, Lips) for $25.

This one I picked up last at Forever21 for $5.99.
