Money isn't everything... even when it comes to fashion! Our bargain-hunting queen Darbi is on the prowl to dress best for less.

Fishin' for Cheap Fashion!

Hello fashion divas and welcome to my house of fashion! This residency is designed to help anyone who has a fashion fiasco or just simply loves fashion! (And who doesn't?) So, come on in and make yourself comfy! Take your shoes off and stay a while!

Fishing for Fashion is a "state-of-the-art" home for fashion divas across the universe! My own personal style is mainly catching bargain baits! Fishing is the greatest aspect of the fashion process! Learning is the best way to become a "natural" fisherwoman! Don't you hate it when your beau is always caught up in guy activity? Well, my beau is a fish-aholic so I have decided to turn myself into one as well. Whenever he goes fishing for fish, I go fishing for fashion! That is the name of the game. So, jump aboard and let's begin our voyage!

One must always have her own personal style. It can range from classic, preppy, mod, to trendy Or it can be your own unique mix! Mine is trendy with a touch of classic creativeness, which means that I love new trends, but I also have a classic sleekness. And I love to be very creative with my whole fashion fortress! Once you have your style down, you are ready to succeed in the world of fashion!

Rules for fishing...

1. After entering the shop, head straight for the ever-popular Clearance section.
2. Examine garments closely. If damaged see if they are fixable.
3. Try not to buy items at regular price, they always get marked down- I promise! The only really good times to buy at regular price are when:

a.You have a big event coming up and really need a new outfit.
b.You are purchasing for someone else.
c.You realize that it is a Must Have Item!

4. Pick the majority of your items to be builders rather than accessories.
Example: Items that can be worn with 100's of other items!
5. Don't forget to have fun while you hunt for your bargains!

Some of my best Catches of the Day:

Tommy Hilfiger skirt reg. $68 for $13 @ Elder Beerman
Silver jeans reg. $48 for $9.99 @ Maurice's
Esprit dress reg. $38 for $5.98 @ Elder Beerman
J.C. Penney Semi-Annual Clearance

I bought a pair of dress pants + long sleeve white dress shirt + sweater vest = $20.00! A complete ensemble for 20 bucks!

Please send me some of your own personal catches and the stories behind them! Also send any questions that you may have about shopping for less.
Until next time, Keep on Stylin'!
