I'm a quirky mom and Chief Servant to the Emperor (my 5 year old) as well as a real life author (with all the dirty diapers, it's not as glamorous as it sounds). My budget fashion sense centers on bold colored sets with lots of layers using snazzy stuff I snag at LikeTwice. If you haven't tried LikeTwice yet (70-90% off brand name designer clothes, people), you can get a $10 credit here: https://liketwice.com/5Nxqy
You'll thank me. It's what makes my closet work with my bank account.
