I was a bit daunted by my bargain challenge — creating three different looks for $30 each. But there were two saving graces: I could borrow one item from a friend's closet, and I could use an item of my own. I found the best deals for clothing at Plato's Closet and Ross Dress for Less, and the best deals on accessories at Forever 21. I also discovered that Regency Square's Aldo is a shoe liquidation store. Some other favorites were the Clothes Rack at Stratford Hills Shopping Center (cute jackets and dresses), Rugged Warehouse (lots of J. Crew and Ann Taylor Loft), The Butterfly (consignment designer shoes and clothes) and Claire's Boutique (accessories from $2.50).
