Recently, I attended a fashion show and one of the gifts was a giant magazine focused on women entreprenuers. I was scanning their pictures and checking out the entrepreneurs outfits (go figure), when I noticed a woman wearing fabulous white tuxedo jacket. It was crisp and tailored and stood out against the gray background. It immediately caught my eye. When I got home after the show, I emailed her to find out where she got this white jacket. I just had to have it.
So I emailed her to find out. I completely expected her to say she bought it at Saks or Nordstroms and for it to cost a arm and a leg. It just looked that good. Jayna emailed me back to say that she bought it at KOHL’s! It was part of the Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s line. I was in complete shock! Two days later I drove to my nearest Kohls to find this elusive jacket. 10 minutes later, I walked out of there with that jacket for $36.00!
I say all this to encourage people that are on a budget. You can find great pieces at lower prices. Do not give up or settle for pieces you don’t love. Creating your style does not have to cost a fortune but it does take knowledge and a little elbow grease. I’d love to hear what great pieces you have found lately.
