Fashion on a Budget and a $300 Madewell Giveaway

Todays post is all about how to stay fashionable, while still on a budget. I for one, am a firm believer that you don’t have to break the bank to look and feel great. One of my absolute favorite things to do is bargain shop, and find adorable pieces for a great price. That is why I love Dress Venus. I found this lace cutout top I had been eyeing at a boutique for quite some time now. The boutique was selling it for   $90, and I found the exact one at Dress Venus for only $20! Booya! Not to mention this darling pink cross body bag is only $20 as well. It looks like a bag you’d think would be at least $150. Am I right? Lets just say I was pleasantly surprised by how cute it was in person, even better than the pictures! So, if you are a fellow shopping addict like me. Its okay to admit it- this is a safe place. 😉 Then Dress Venus will be your new best friend! Happy Shopping!

Oh, and make sure to enter the $300 Madewell Gift Card giveaway! See details below.
