I went to the store yesterday, and where there had been a display of lawn chairs and coolers for summer there were now stacks of notebooks, book bags, pens and pencils for the beginning of school. Whether you’re ready or not the lazy days of summer are coming to an end.
There is a bright side though, the new school year is a fresh start and a chance to make an entrance. Why not take the opportunity to update your look? No money saved from your summer job you say? No problem…
There are tons of ways to transform your current clothes or thrift store finds into a new look that requires a minimum of skill and money. Seriously.

Accessories are a simple, quick and cheap way to bring a little excitement into your wardrobe. There is no shortage of tutorials on the internet…here are just a few.
We are only scratching the surface of all the cool and cheap ways to strut your stuff. If you’re looking for more inspiration check out a few of the tons of books on fashion and setting your own style at the library.
