Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget

All of my life, I’ve had a taste for luxury.

My father was a custom home builder and I drooled over all the beautiful homes and fresh paint smell.

I was the best dressed kid on the streets at 8 running around my grandparents neighborhood in the summer with my matching shorts outfits and cute sandals.

I vividly remember at a family reunion one of my country cousins coming up to me and saying in the biggest Texas twang you ever heard “I like your clothes.”

It even says next to my high school class favorite picture that I aspired to one day be the editor of Vogue magazine. (a combination of my joy of writing and the desire for more clothes).

As a married mom of two, expenses are astronomical! No one tells you that your designer duds budget is replaced with “my children’s needs come first.” Ugh! I’ve become super practical and I try to help my clients in the same position do the same. So I compiled a list of luxury discount sites that I hope that you will enjoy. It removes the guilt of shopping and I still can be somewhat fashion forward.
