Kelly is having a linky party.... on dressing for less. I definitely know how to do that. I don't buy anything that isn't 70% off. Shopping on line is the way to go. Most sites allow you to only look at clothes that are a certain % off, then you can sort the list by price and once you reach your limit, stop. That's what I do, and I find DEALS. Everything below I got at target.com for 70% off. The dresses (I wear them with a cami under them) and jacket were each less than $10. The shorts were about $4.
I also like Nordstrom.com. Check out the steals Target has NOW.
