It's the fact that I am a thrifty girl at heart when it comes to clothing. Other than outerwear, I never pay retail prices for clothes. Let's face it, living in the Midwest, coats are a true investment. I would rather save money and splurge on handbags than on clothes. Take this outfit as an example, the entire outfit (top, bottom, jacket and shoes) costs right around $50. I love this outfit. It's so comfortable and I feel like a million bucks wearing it.
