And now for something completely different...

I'm taking a break from Tracy on the Cheap today to simply be Tracy. I realized yesterday that writing about clothes and Photoshopping outfits can be viewed as pretty darn shallow. The truth is, the outfits and posts are simply a vehicle I use to more effectively express myself, both visually and verbally. I'm glad to have found a creative outlet.
Heather over at alis grave nil answered these 2009 Reflection Questions most beautifully this morning...I thought I'd give it a go as well.

1. What was the single best thing that happened this past year?
There is nothing more amazing than welcoming a baby into your life. It’s a joy beyond words. She’s perfect.

 2. What was the single most challenging thing that happened?
See #1. Becoming a mother requires a new definition of patience. This is convenient because, along with a baby, childbirth bestowed upon me a new sense of peace, calm, and purpose. This does not change the fact that being a mom is the single most challenging thing I have ever experienced. (I took a break from typing that last sentence to say, “Don’t put that leaf in your mouth!” I rest my case.)

3. What was an unexpected joy this past year?
This little blog. Finding a creative outlet. Learning how to do something, and being pleasantly surprised with the results. Allowing myself to write incomplete sentences. Using ellipses to excess...and then some.

4. What was an unexpected obstacle?
Balancing being a mom with trying to earn a living and not falling victim to the guilt machine that is my conscious was a far larger obstacle than I had anticipated.

5. Pick three words to describe 2009.
Daughter, love, euphoric

6. Pick three words your spouse would use to describe your 2009
Baby, blog, happy

7. Pick three words your spouse would use to describe their 2009
Papa, proud, achievement

8. What were the best books you read this year?
Gone With the Wind and Middlesex. Middlesex has completely ruined any book for me in the near future. Damn that was a good book. (Don’t you like my literary critique skills?)

9. With whom were your most valuable relationships?
My husband, my daughter, my parents, my brother. Family.

10. What was your biggest personal change from January to December of this past year?
Can anything change one more than motherhood? I love who I am becoming as the mother of this amazing, delightful little girl. The personal growth that accompanies my growth as a mother is a surprising and welcome change.

11. In what way(s) did you grow emotionally?
I became so much stronger this year. I tolerate far less bullshit. I’m not (as) scared to let people read what I write and see what I create and open myself up for critique. I’m more centered and happy than I’ve ever been.

12. In what way(s) did you grow spiritually?
My personal beliefs have become more concrete in the past year. I’ve realized that having different views, ideals, and beliefs than others doesn’t make me wrong. You know what? Anyone who makes you feel that your beliefs are in anyway beneath their own seriously needs to evaluate their own set of principals.

13. In what way(s) did you grow physically?
I’ve always been one of those people who said, “I’ll start when”. I swore I’d start working out before I graduated from college, before I got married, before I got pregnant, etc., etc. So finally I said, “I’ll start working out after I have the baby.” And you know what? I did. A-freakin-mazing.

14. In what way(s) did you grow in your relationships with others?
Relationship lessons I’ve learned in 2009:
1)When two people work equally hard towards a common goal of a joyful marriage, the results are blissful.
2) On friends...true friends choose camaraderie over competition. Friends accept you without the asterisk that someday, some way, they will change you. Friends are able to emerge out from under the umbrella of their own ego to admit when they are wrong and sincerely apologize. Ending a friendship sucks, but life’s better on the other side.

15. What was your single biggest time waster in your life this past year?
Ye old blog and that thar Facebook.

16. What was the best way you used your time this past year?
Kissing a little head, completely lacking in hair, over and over again. Telling an itty bitty girl how much I love her, time and time again. Allowing myself to be still, happy, and content with the moment at hand.

17. What was the biggest thing you learned this past year?
Whenever someone asks my husband how he’s doing, he always says, “Fantastic!”And you know what? He means it. I’ve learned that by simply choosing to be happy, you create happiness.

18. Create a phrase or statement that describes 2009 for you.
Best year yet.

New Year's Eve...


This afternoon I'm going shopping for a New Year's Eve outfit...I've got a Ross gift card burning a hole in my pocket, and I'm going to spend the entire thing on stuff I don't need! (Unlike Target gift cards, which go towards diapers, diapers, and more diapers.)
Since Ross doesn't have clothes on their website, I used Forever 21 for some one stop shopping today. If I had a Forever 21 nearby, this is the outfit I'd choose to spend the evening in. I LOVE these blue shoes....love love love them! And that peacock clip...classy!

Take a Memo...


When I was little, I loved playing office. My dad would bring home office supplies from the school he taught at, and I'd be in imagination heaven stamping, stapling, and hole punching. If only work was really that much fun!
If I had to dress up for work, I'd definitely be rocking some wide fishnet tights with some vintage inspired booties like these. And some funky reading glasses, even though they would just make my eyes hurt. Fashion is pain, people. Fashion is pain.
(I adore this typewriter necklace from Etsy...I've been eyeing it for quite a while now, and think I'm going to go ahead and make the purchase. And H is a special letter, indeed!)

Anyone out in blog land have any requests? I love ideas and would be just tickled to create a post for you, just leave me a comment here or on Facebook!

Twas the night before the night before Christmas...

So the other day, after looking at a very stylish friend's photos on Facebook, I had a non-cheap moment.
"Santa", I said to myself, "This year, I would really, really like some nice jeans. Perhaps some jeans that I don't have to order sight unseen off eBay. Perhaps some jeans that don't have tattered hems and are just a teensy bit too short. Perhaps some jeans like this:


Or maybe this:


With this uncharacteristic, non cheap thought dancing in my head, I went out Christmas shopping with my mom. After a successful trip to Big Lots (Have you been to Big Lots? Oh how I love a great trip to Big Lots!) we popped over to the American Cancer Society Discovery Shop. The Discovery Shop is a great little thrift store that always has a good deal or two (plus it's staffed by incredibly cute and helpful volunteers who you just want to make your Grandma). With the thought of nice jeans still with me, I walked over to the "finer things" rack. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but five pairs of designer jeans in my (almost) size!
This is about the point in any good story where we get to the antagonist, the villain if you will. We will call her Skinny Butt Mother* (or SBM for short). When I hold a particular pair of pants up and ask if they look like they will fit me, SBM says, "They look like they will fit ME!" She promplty takes all five pairs to the dressing room, from whence she declares, "They all fit!".
Then I enter, try on the jeans, (which fit ok, but will fit great very soon, damnit). I ask SBM if one pair looks ok, and she says "They look a little tight across the middle of your butt". (What are mothers for, if not complete honesty?) In the end, I ended up with two pairs, and she ended up with two pairs, and we were both happy. She even offered to keep the pants I bought until they fit me better. Isn't she the best?
So what did I get, you may be wondering. Well here ya go:

(Yes, that is my carpet. Isn't it awesome? Mint green is coming back into style someday, and when that day comes, won't we be trendy.)

And my best find of the year, the coupe de grace of cheapness...


$18 for hardly worn designer jeans that would cost $198 new? I'm a happy girl.

*You may ask...how can I say such things about my mother? Well, I'm pretty darn sure she can't figure out how to comment on my blog, so I feel secure. Yes mom, that's a challenge. Love ya!

It's My Party...



Forever and a day ago Liz said, "How about an outfit for a company party? This year will be my first one and I have no idea what to wear!"
First, Liz, I'm so sorry it has taken me this long to put this post together. Here's to hoping it's a between the Holiday's party, eh?
(Stay tuned for tomorrow's post...the deal of the century, a veritable Christmas Miracle!)

Oh black sequin mini, how I love thee...

My 80th post! Boo ya!
So I'm not a big follower of trends, but I'm totally lusting after a black sequin mini skirt. New Year's Eve is the only occasion I can think of where I might actually have the opportunity to wear it, but I still want one nonetheless. So in my shopping for said black sequin skirt, I came upon the following...




This Sequin Skirt doesn't look all that special, does it? Appears to be just like the $12 ones I've spotted in TJ Maxx...except that this one costs $370.37. Really? I'm pretty sure that the sequin skirt is not destined to become a wardrobe staple along the lines of jeans and white button down shirts. I'm farely certain that, by this time next year, the sequin skirt will be as out of style as shoulder pads and fanny packs.
 


So this BCBGeneration Cheap Mini seems a bargain at $29. (Marked down from $58!).
Yet I'll still probably end up with the $12 TJ Maxx version. Why? Because I'm cheap like that.

Target One Stop Shopping!



Hello blogging world! It's been quite a while, I know.
Today it's all about Target. Have you noticed that I rarely use clothes from Target in my posts? That's because all the stuff on Target.com is shown on models...and it's darn hard to Photoshop models out of clothes. I had to hunt for stuff that flowed together just the right way...luckily it matched! (So if you're some Photoshop whiz, please don't make fun of my lack of skillz...)

Hot Cocoa Time!



I've never been skiing, but I can safely bet I would not be good at it (severely lacking in the coordination department here). What I would be good at is drinking hot cocoa by the fire in a lodge while everyone else went out and got wet and cold. My kind of winter day. I'd throw a good book in that cool mustard tote, slip on those blue slippers, and curl up for a good, long read.
Sorry for the intermittent posting lately...crawling babies (who also climb stairs!) are just a whole bunch of work fun!

Seriously Walmart?




When I decided to use Walmart for my one stop shopping today, I fully expected to be able to keep everything under $100. Actually, I was shooting for $50. You know what I discovered? Walmart's whack. I'm certain I could walk in to any Walmart in America and leave with an outfit for less than $50...but not on walmart.com. Sure, I found a $20 dress, but that was it. Where are my standby fake diamond earrings? Where are the cheap purses and $10 shoes? Nowhere to be found.
You know what they do have? $250 shoes. You know what, Walmart? If I'm going to spend 250 bucks on shoes, it certainly isn't going to be on walmart.com. Heck, I don't even want to spend $46 on shoes, but the pickings were pretty slim. What up, Walmart? Think you're Macy's or something?

The overpriced goods:
Chiffon Party Dress
Black Satin Shoes
Satin Clutch
Black and White Diamond Earrings

Cheap Holiday Cheer


Lauren of the little things we do (uber cute blog alert!) said, "My suggestion is how to look chic/warm. It's freezing here! Layers are a necessity, but most sweaters are bulky and unflattering so I avoid them at all costs. Ugh! Plus, most anything with ribbing is awful on me. I would love suggestions for how to bundle up and not look like I'm headed for the North Pole."
I hear ya, Lauren. I actually kinda  miss working in an office this time of year, because I loved layering up my work clothes in fun ways. Tights, sweaters, skirts, and boots were my corporate uniform from November to February. With some creative layering, I managed to wear my funky skirt collection year round!
I thought I'd make today's post a little more fun by throwing in some holiday cheer. (I've managed to resist the black, red and white urge for a quite a spell!) I think the key to not looking too bundled up is light layers (like the collared shirt and cardigan) and a bright colored coat with a belt to cinch it all in. Hope you like it, Lauren!

Goodwill to All!



My annual Black Friday trip to Goodwill was a great success! I walked out with $60 worth of half price merchandise (including a 100% silk shirt with the $99.50 price tag still attached!). I decided to include a few things I bought in my posts this week, starting with this Target shirt dress. I loved this dress when it was in the stores a while back, but not enough to spend $35. Three bucks at Goodwill? I'll take it! Since it's a summer dress, and I want to wear it, like, NOW, I'm layering it over a turtle neck and wearing a cardigan. For some reason, the layered look is a lot easier to pull off in real life than it is in Photoshop. Thus the kind of mis-matched, old lady look above. Trust me, it's much cuter in person!

Merona Shirt Dress, Thrifted

Turkey Day!



Well hello! It's been quite a while since I've fired up Photoshop and done some good bargain shopping! A lack of baby naps has severely hindered my blogging. (But given me some really enjoyable mommy time!) 
I had a request for something to wear on Thanksgiving. Great idea! Considing last year I wore pajama pants and a ratty sweatshirt (thank you, pregnancy for making me feel awesome) I think I'm going to dress up a bit this year. I like this outfit from Old Navy because the sweater, shirt, and jeans are great wardrobe basics, and the whole shebang is under $150.
Just FYI, if you're in need of some good shopping, I know that the Goodwill in my city has a half off sale on Black Friday. Last year I bought a whole shopping cart full of baby clothes for $50. Each item was a whopping $1.17. And, amazingly enough, baby has outgrown almost everything I bought. Time for another trip! (Are you one of those people who think shopping for your kid at Goodwill is gross? If so, I'm sorry. We ain't rollin' in dough around here.)

What's that you say? You spent $866 on your clothes? Gee...that's quite a bit of money! Well, it must cost that much to look stylish these days...



Oh wait...never mind. It actually only costs $75 to look stylish! You really didn't need that extra $800, did you trendy model?

Mod Thursday


Modcloth's the word here on One Stop Thursdays! I love Modcloth. If I had a million dollars, I'd order one of everything they have. They aren't super cheap, but they are certainly affordable. As it is, I don't have a million dollars, so I just "window shop" vicariously through this little blog.
Any recommendations for tomorrow's post? Stores or designers you want to see Tracy on the Cheap take on? I'd love suggestions!

Mommy Muscles!



Way back in August I did a post about the mom and kiddo fitness class I go to with my little one. It's called StrollerFit, and it's GREAT. It's a fitness program for moms of strollerage kids. It combines cardio, strength training, singing to the kids, and fun! What mom wouldn't want to exercise with her kiddo, get out of the house, and talk to other moms?
I was scared to join a group fitness class, but I'm so glad I did. After improving my mile run time by over a minute (and increasing my strength by 114% and losing over 5 inches!) I'm sold. (It's my blog, right? I can brag a little.) Even better, I know I'm setting a good example for my little one and making great friends in the process. Our instructor, Wendy (check out her blog here) is incredibly motivating and energetic. She makes you want to keep coming to class! If it sounds like fun, check out the StrollerFit website to see if there is a group near you.

Dinner & Dancing



On Saturday night Mr. Cheap and I went to a dinner dance fundraiser (where I may or may not have had a LOT of fun). How excited was I for a reason to dress up? Very.
At the fundraiser (where I may or may not have got on stage to sing Loveshack) I got a ton of compliments on my Target shirt that I've had forever, so I thought I'd try something a little different today, a "what I wore" post. I had to fudge a little on the boots (mine came clearance from Victoria's Secret) and the necklace (I can't for the life of me remember where I got my black pearls) and Target doesn't carry my favorite shirt anymore, but for the most part it's what I had on. I love me some Lucky Sundowner jeans, and I can usually find a good pair on Ebay for around 20 bucks instead of their insane $130 asking price. I just added some $3 cubic zirconia earrings (I have one real diamond, and it's all I need) and I was good to go for under $100!

Alexander McCostly


Here's what I know about Alexander McQueen:
1) When you Google "top designers", he's the first name that appears.
2) If you have an extra $4,215 lying around, he can help you look like the chick above (and that price is without the fur stole).
3) He really likes jaunty hats.


Here's what I know about Tracy on the Cheap:
1) I don't have four grand to spend on clothes. Hello, mortgage!
2) My version costs $4,000 less than Alex's.
3) I could never pull off that jaunty hat.

Budget Boho



Well hello there, bloggy world! I took a technology sabbatical the last few days...felt like I was staring at the computer just a wee bit too much. But I'm back for One Stop Thursday with a great store I discovered called Ruche. They call themselves "a modern boutique with a vintage look". I call them swell...It's like Antropologie, but cheap! Well, $250 isn't exactly cheap in my book, but it's a whole lot less than you'd spend for a similar look at ol' Antro. I'm in love with the grapes and berries drop earrings. So far I've resisted whipping out the credit card, but I'm tempted.
Do tell...have you ever bought anything you saw on this here blog? Perhaps next week I'll share the things I've blogged about and decided I couldn't live without.
Oh yes, a few of you have asked how to find the things I feature here...see those purple descriptions right down there? They are all linked straight to that item. Genius, eh?

The Goods:

Heaven's to Betsey...




Oh my, this one's a doozy. Katie suggested that I take on Betsey Johnson this week for Frugal Friday. I love Betsey's style, but putting together an outfit was harder than I anticipated. And at over $500 (I think...I had a hard time tracking down prices), her outfit is certainly on the pricey side. All I can say is Betsey, you've got some crazy looks going on. I think her stuff is better taken one at a time than all at once. (Blue tights and red shoes? Very Superman!) I'm afraid it's a TOTC fashion fail. But hey, at least I found a $3 belt!

The scoop:


And since I'm a glutton for punishment, I tried again. What do you think...any better?

Trick or Treat!


Boo! It's One Stop Thursday!
I love Halloween. There's nothing better than the smell of a pillowcase filled with candy. (Especially when you grew up in a house when Halloween was pretty much the only time of year you got candy. Yay, health food.) I would manage to make my pillow case last well past Christmas, when the only things left were knarly flavors of lollipops and old lady hard candy. 
So to celebrate the upcoming holiday, here's a little ensemble to get in the "spirit". Everything comes from Forever 21, a place where the deals are so good, they're scary.

Holiday Soiree


Kelly said, "I inherited this jewelry this summer. I would like to wear it to my husband’s annual work holiday party (at the country club – la de da) this December! The only problem is I don’t really wear this color, especially on formal/semi-formal occasions! I’m more of a black, brown, cranberry red kinda girl. Are you up for the challenge?"
Thanks Kelly! Talk about a challenge...I didn't realize how hard it would be to find something that matched blue topaz! I tried it with a brown dress (no luck), a white dress (very snowflake) and about ten other colors. Then I stumbled upon this black and white maxi dress. Hopefully it's just la de da enough for the country club! And at just $50, you can't beat the price!

Sequins & Such


Katie said, "Hi TOTC! I love your blog! I have a suggestion for you - what would you wear with a sequined skirt? I just bought one today (because I'm a Rachel Zoe junkie and she "loves her some sequins") and have a few ideas for what to wear it with, but would love your opinion!" Katie then detailed some of her recent purchases over on her blog, and I borrowed her look (with permission, of course!) and added some accessories. I kept it monochromatic and used just a few semi-sparkly accessories. Katie travels for her job (read some of her hilarious travel stories here), so I threw in an awesome crocodile print patent carry on bag.
What do you think? Could you wear this to work? Does it need color, or would that be too much? Like I said before, I'm no fashion expert, so I could have totally missed the boat on sequins!

Kiss Me Kate


I have a confession to make...I know absolutely nothing about fashion. I don't follow trends. I don't pay any attention to what so-and-so celebrity is wearing. I can't tell you the top purse or shoe brands. My style is entirely dictated by what I like, and if what I like is on sale. Pretty ironic that I decided to write a fashion blog, right?
So why the disclaimer? Well, my friend Rachel suggested I take on Kate Spade for Frugal Friday, and honestly, I didn't know that Kate made more than purses. I know, stuck in the dark ages. So I discovered Kate Spade clothing. And serioulsy love what she's got going. Just look at that cute chick up there! Red, black and white! Polka Dots! Pencil Skirts! Kate and I are on the same wavelength. Well, not entirely. Kate's look costs $1,585. Blarg. That's a mortgage payment! Sorry Kate, my new found love only goes so far.


So, I gave Kate the kiss off and stole her look. And at less than $175, you can still look as if you've got 1,500 bucks to blow on clothes. Thanks for the inspiration, Kate. Sorry it didn't work out between us.

Baby's 1st Birthday



My darling cousin Ashley said, "Hey Tracy, I was thinking maybe for your next blog you could do a mommy and baby first birthday party outfit for both. I am strapped for cash and have no idea what we'll wear."
Because we're cousins, both Ashley and I have inherited a prevalent family trait...the cheap gene. Our grandma had 12 kids and knew a thing or two about being frugal and stretching a dollar. Thus, we all learned the value of a good deal. And a good sense of humor.  :)

After a great trip to Old Navy last night, I decided "shop" there for Ashley's look. Mama and baby can both dress up for under $200. Even better, mama's outfit doubles as office wear after the birthday party, and baby's outfit is warm enough to last many wearings through the winter. (And don't you just love that both of you can wear Mary Jane's? Too cute!) Hope you like it, Ashley!

One Stop Thursday...everything today comes from Old Navy.
For baby:
Plaid Jumper
Lettuce Edge Turtleneck
Cable Knit Tights
Mary Jane's

For mama:

It's a Deal!

I fell in love with this red skirt this summer at Old Navy, but it was a little pricey at $26.50. Last night I went to Old Navy and they were having their oh so amazing 50% off already marked down merchandise sale. Long story short, I got a $30 sweater for $8, a $25 shirt for $7, and the aforementioned skirt...only $4! There's value in waiting for something to go on sale!

Tough Chick

We've been watching the new show "The Good Wife" on Tuesday nights. One of the characters is a researcher for a law firm, and she rocks some wicked over the knee boots and funky blazers on a regular basis. Do people who work in law firms regularly wear those? I'm guessing no. But it makes for some good TV!
