From Riches To Rags

Dont take the title of this blog literally, but I do seem to spend a hell of a lot of money on clothes and I do admit that most of the time I buy rather expensive clothes. So there I was reading some blogs that I follow and noticed that many items people wear seem relatively inexpensive. So I thought Id give myself a little challenge with $250L. What exactly can I buy for this kind of money ? How many outfits can I achieve ? Are skins available ? Shoes ? More importantly would I still look stylish from Riches to Rags ?
So off I went , looking in my LM's at places that I had not visited since I was a newbie. Many of the big stores now however offer free or virtually free items, so I was in for a real treat.

There are 100's upon 100's of these type of stores and to be honest, I really didnt want to trawl secondlife looking for most of them. Anyway , my laptop is playing up at the moment and wherever I TP to I crash constantly. So I used many of my LMs for stores I was aware of that would assist in this little adventure.

Excellent Excellent Carnell. I didn't think you had it in you to shop frugally but u did it. I am going to tell Mr K to withdraw you spending limit given you can look so hot for so less.

Good story pops.
