You've heard it before...if you want to be stylish but you have a limited budget, "Shop your closet!" Easier said than done sometimes,especially if you're like me. I love to shop and I love a bargain, so I frequently find myself picking up something here or something there for 75% off and popping it in my closet. Then a week later I see it hanging with the tags still on and think about taking it back, but for less than $10 it feels like not even worth my time! And I end up with cute pieces I don't know how to pair together.

Enter the Style Inspiration Board! The idea behind this for me comes from style queen Susan Wagner, and last week I finally put one together. I started by periodically clipping pages out of magazines with looks, colors, and pieces I was struck by. When I had collected a small pile of pages I grabbed a ribbon board I'd made in my MOPS group back in PA and yanked out all the photos. I carefully cut the photos down to sizes that would fit between the ribbons and tried to arrange them so I could at least see most of the image.

Enjoy this short video showing where I hung my board, along with a small fashion haul of tops I got off the clearance rank at Ann Taylor LOFT. At least one of these tops was an exchange from a too-small Mother's Day gift!
