Reality Chic: Looks for Less

By Samantha Curtis @hooahandhiccups

I put together this outfit on Polyvore because I really wanted to play with the idea of polka dot pants. I love how feminine polka dots are mixed with the ruggedness of jeans. Could I pull off this look for way less?

Well as you know, I will not be recreating that look for nearly as much! Here's how I did it:

Can you believe I scored these pants for $7?! I'm typically not a Walmart shopper but I ran in for some fruit and saw these on the end cap. How could I pass them up? They're LEI so they're a decent quality pant and my husband actually mentioned how much he liked them (and he liked them even better when I told him they were $7! )
The bag is actually a camera bag (that I got for my birthday) but it doubles as a purse and diaper bag too. I get compliments everywhere I go! They also have smaller and less expensive ones in the same color. 
Lesson: you never know where you're going to find inspiration!
Now show me your looks for less :)
