Looking like a celeb doesn’t have to cost you thousands. With a little creativity and research you can get that designer look without maxing out your Amex. You’ll be surprised how far a few hundred dollars can take you. After all, how much fun is a purchase if you’ll be eating ramen for a month to make up for it? I’ll admit: I also wanted a chance to rifle through ModCloth.com, which definitely has the best prices on the most adorable dresses. So put your credit card away. You can pay for this one in cash, baby!
