3.1 WOMEN'S CLOTHES, UNUSUAL TIPS; DISCOUNT CLOTHES AND CLOTHING.
== Check out men's & boys' clothes
These clothes are often cheaper and better made. Consider these items: jeans, shirts, cuff links, corduroy pants, sweaters and T-shirts. Women who like roomy clothes can also do well.
Women who wear petite sizes may find good deals on boys' belts, sweaters, jackets and socks as well.
At thrift stores the best buys are often in men's clothes. My wife bought a Brooks Brothers shirt for 25 cents. Look for sports jackets, cardigans, fancy bathrobes, and funky rain coats.
== Be careful with trendy items
A survey showed that months later most women had not worn that stylish dress they had been excited about.
== Put your money in classics
Classics that can be mixed and matched will last for years. These are worth paying for. Buy quality.
== Try less expensive clones of the latest fashion
Some $50 outfits look almost like $1000 designer outfits. Women's magazines often feature these high and low priced versions as does "Oprah" on television.
== Try vintage consignment shops
Old fashioned quality for a reasonable price. Some alterations may be in order.
