I think my mom is proof that no matter what your age or budget you can dress stylishly (and comfortably, because that is what my mother emphasizes most to me whenever we go shopping! :P) for a reasonable price. After all, Mommy Dearest is where I learned to scour the sale racks first-- and how to use Ebates, too.
(Seriously, if you don't use Ebates yet, you should definitely sign up and start using it every time you shop online, because you get a percentage cash back with every purchase AND coupon codes! My mom has been using it for years and has literally gotten over $1,300 in cash back checks just from shopping online! Also, despite the fact that I am not a big online shopper myself, I've still gotten over $70 back... and let's be honest: getting extra money back makes shopping even more fun!)

Merry Christmas Eve!
