Budget Chic-a: July Finds!

If you follow me on twitter and on  facebook then you probably have had to put up with my constant status updates and tweets about my love affair with certain items as I am shopping and browsing the stores,  followed by my reminders of how I need to hold off on the shopping and how I need to watch my spending.  Of course this does not mean that I have stopped shopping altogether, oh no! On the other hand, I have been doing a lot of "budget shopping" lately (which is equally as bad because I am still spending money!) Anyway, above are a some of  my "July Budget Finds".

This July I  scored a couple of other "finds" that are not pictured above and which I could not help but wear instantly! Those items were: the white mesh top seen here and here ($14.99), the hot pink striped top seen here ($12.99) and lastly, my lovely faux ostrich purse that I have been wearing non stop ($16.99)!

 
My favorite find for the month of July without a doubt is the yellow all purpose zipper pouch that I found at Walmart (pictured above)!  I was walking down the aisle where they sell the hammers, paint and all of that "manly" stuff found at Walmart and I had to come to a complete stop and do a double take! As soon as I saw the colored pouches hanging from the shelves my my face filled with excitement as I though; "a colorful clutch!" yes please! The best part... the "colorful clutch" was under $3! Wooopie!

 
Tell me, where do you go budget shopping at?
Where do you find the best chic deals at? ;)

i love scoring amazing deals! i've recently become more interested in shopping at thrift and vintage stores. the youtube channels clothes encounters and the fashion citizen are really persuading me to stop paying retail.

I LOVE THOSE LACE SHORTS! I almost bought them at TJ MAXX myself ;) they are too cute! And I understand completely, I'm such a bargain shopper myself! I love Buffalos Exchange and Crossroads for fashionable finds for a lot less than retail! Retail is evil, it dwindles my money away :P

TJ Maxx is probably one of my favorite places to shop. I always find the most perfect items. And it looks like you do too. I love those lace shorts.

I find the best deals at thrift stores. It's becoming quite an addiction. Now I am looking for some lace shorts, and maybe I'll go to TJ Maxx and see if I can find those. I can relate to trying not to spend money on clothes, and also to finding things at lower price points. I'm constantly buying and selling clothes, so it's an endless cycle for me.
