Going Out? Look the Part

In the closet are dozens of clubbing dresses and outfits but you just don't have a thing to wear! You know that everyone has already seen your flashy silver number more than twice and your best friend is planning to wear her brand new red outfit this coming weekend. That means your favorite go to red dress is out of the question, too.

So, what is a fashion forward woman on a budget to do? Thank goodness, there are a number of options to help you out of your fashion/budget crisis. If you know where to shop, you can have a great dress or outfit as well as killer accessories that will keep people oohing and aahing, every time that you hit the dance floor!

Hunting for the Best Bargains in Club Wear
Some women will adapt the same basic black dress to every occasion and be satisfied. Others will develop the shopping instincts of a lioness on the hunt, able to smell a bargain from miles away. They know that there are certain shops that will have incredible mark downs for certain holidays or seasons and they also know the sites to use for online bargains that let them be as fashion forward as they want without having to spend their entire budget to do so.

For instance, very savvy women can find clubbing dresses on pricegrabber and pay far less than they would pay on any other site.

Another option is to find great deals on other sites like eBay and Deal Dash.

Renting Your Club Wear?
Another option which gives the ability to not only wear great club wear but also keeps you from having to find a place to store it all when you are done is to rent. The bigger the city you live in, the more rental options you might have. There are always some rental stores that have fabulous dresses and accessories not only for clubbing but for special occasions and pageants as well.

Before you rent, make sure that you get it for at least a full night and ask if there is insurance in case something happens to it while you are dancing the night away. Try the dress on so that you can check it out for fit and style as well as to make sure that it as clean as the renter is claiming it to be.

Thrift Store Beauties
Thrift stores, especially in certain areas, are a veritable goldmine of amazing dresses and other club wear items. The prices on these items can be as much as ninety percent off the retail cost of a similar, new item. But, before you buy, make sure that there are no glaring blemishes like rips or stains that will not be able to be taken care of.

A minor problem can be worth the effort, especially if you really like the item. Don't be shocked if you run across designer names while thrift store shopping, you would be shocked at what people wear once and then get rid of!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
