One week from today I’ll be boarding a plane for Austin, Texas to attend South by Southwest, courtesy of Tyson Foods and Walmart! While the thought of attending a blogging conference is exciting, this stay-at-home mom’s wardrobe isn’t quite the professional look I prefer to display to potential business contacts.
So I saved my money, set a budget, and set out to see how far I could make my budget stretch. I think I did pretty well, though it was really hard for me to spend that much money on me. (If I were shopping for my kids, it would have been easier!)
But you tell me. After watching the video, let me know how you think I did. Did I build a good professional look? Did I get my money’s worth?
And if you’re interested in frugal fashion, be sure to tune in to Frugal Coast2Coast on Monday (8:30 EST/5:30 PST). We’ll be interviewing Kathryn Finney, author of How to be a Budget Fashionista! I’m sure she has some GREAT advice!
