We all want to look great but sometimes that is not the easiest thing to do because we have limited funds and unlimited wants.
You don't actually have to spend a lot to look great. You just need to make very wise purchases and spend the money to get quality where it counts. You need to invest in a good, well made bag but it does not have to be expensive.
I got a bag similar to this one at Sam Moon for under $40 and it serves as my everyday bag. This bag has taken a lot of hits but it still looks good. It is fashionable enough to look nice when I am all dressed up to teach but it also is casual enough to not look out of place when I am wearing jeans and a blouse to go go class.
I am not really into purses but I was told a lady needs to have at least one nice purse and I think this does well for an everyday bag.
This bag is the perfect size to carry one or two textbooks if I need to but it is not too big so I don't feel like I am carrying a giant purse around all the time.
Another thing you can do is to shop the clearance racks when looking for clothes.
Most people seem to forget that the clothes on the clearance rack are the same clothes that were on the regular racks just a couple of weeks ago.
There is nothing wrong with waiting a few weeks for the clothes to go on clearance so that you can pay less. I will ALWAYS head to the clearance racks when I enter a store because I would rather pay $10 for a blouse that has been out for two weeks than to pay the full price of $35 the day it hits the store.
You will still look great....just a little later than the rest of your friends. The only problem with shopping the clearance racks is that you may not get the size you want or the color that you want because of the timing of the clearance.
I say don't worry about that..there are TONS of clearance racks to look through at other stores and you don't need to have every single item that comes out.
