|love this tunic (way out of the budget)|
I'm having some style/clothing issues. It's been nearly a year's time but I can't seem to get a hold on clothing or a style that fits my new life. I'm still going in to an office a few days a week but it's a casual place so I'm looking for clothes that can mostly do double duty. I suppose more specifically, I'm having a hard time not just throwing on jeans and t-shirts every day. I'd like to look and feel a bit more pulled together and sophisticated. With a teensy-tiny clothing budget (and a post-baby body), it's a struggle.
The internets is fantastic for beautiful inspiration, but I find it can often be a bit daunting for those of us with $$ taste and small budgets. I completely understand and respect the high prices for independent designers. And as much as I'd love to support them, it's simply not in my budget.
Any words of wisdom from stylish time-crunched and budget-conscious ladies out there (preferably ones who, like me, can't sew their own clothes)? Favorite non-soul-sucking places to shop? East bay thrift stores?
