"You can't always get what you want...

But if you try sometimes you might find...You get what you need" ~The Rolling Stones.

One of THE MOST frustrating things is wanting to buy new clothes, but not having the money to do so. It seems so easy at times to swipe a plastic card and go crazy on buying items that we don't really need. Then reality sets in when we get the bill and our hearts sink when we realize that the new items we bought were really not that worth it...(especially since you probably only wore them once.)

Remember,  fashion should never be stressful it should ALWAYS be fun, carefree, and best of all reasonable! Here are some ideas on how to work with what most of us already have, and what inexpensive items you should purchase to toss up the old.. and make it look brand new. Never forget.. even though we may not always have the luxury of getting what we want, if we do a little searching and use what we have.. we can definitely get what we need.

Lace up booties are an absolute MUST this season. They are sexy, and trendy, with a vintage twist. Pair your lace up booties with skinny jeans, a fitted tee, and a long cardigan or bomber jacket. Be sure to layer a few necklaces and keep your earrings simple. The focus on your outfit are these amazing shoes. For a different look wear your lace up booties with a sweater dress or checkered skirt and sweater with knit tights. You will be sure to be noticed and make a statement when wearing these booties to the office or out for a night on the town. This great addition to your wardrobe will most definitely spice up your older clothes. Best of all you can get them everywhere. Here are some affordable examples below:
