What Can you Do With $300? Don’t Know? Well Here Are Some Incredible Tips!

1 Comment 17 June 2009

It is the age old question…what would you do if you had some money to spend on fashion? And if it was exactly $300? Well $300 these days to a lot of girls out there is a lot of money. But if you did have that option, you would want to buy the ‘essentials’ as I like to call them. What are your essentials? Well your basic jean is one of them. Jeans are so great as you can dress them up or down. They are great for casual wear or for evening wear.

I love these 501® Boyfriend Cut Jeans – ‘patched and repaired’ – look. For $78.00 you have got a great jean to add to your other basic essentials.

Also add an array of cool fun jackets. Either one that you can always wear, or a couple that you can mix and match. This makes your jeans ‘dressy’ as well as ‘casual’.

Cute little jacket for $42.00 at

You can pick up a jacket from Nordstrom from $40-$150. I like this Rubbish® ‘Third Piece’ Knit Jacket for $42.00.

WWF Zebra Tee – $15.80

To make your outfit even cuter, remember to add a really great tee or colorful top to match your whole look. I like this zebra graphic tee from Forever 21. A front contrast zebra print and a back “I’ve Earned My Stripes” print adds a really cool contrast. And what’s really great, is that a portion of the proceeds go to WWF!

But with any great outfit you must have a really great pump and handbag to match. With neutrals like jeans and tee’s. I like to add a great ‘pattern’ based pump or handbag. Try these faux reptile pumps on for size!

Flaunt Reptile Pumps – $24.80

A faux snake skin clutch will look great with any neautral outfit such as jeans! It just vamps it up!

Match those pumps with a faux snake skin clutch bag! You can find a great bag from any online boutique or store. And presto! You have your new look! And with all the pieces I chose, my new look came in at just under $180.00!

So whatever you decide to choose. You can for sure make it something that really works not only for you, but also for your budget!
