meet the budget fashionista...

...you're new best friend! But before I introduce her let me introduce you to wonderful web wednesday. Wednesdays on freshly baked will feature the best of the web (i.e. our most favorite sites). We'll highlight everything from fashion sites to photo blogs--you never know what Wednesday will bring but it will definitely be worth checking out!

I just stumbled across The Budget Fashionista the other day and it's the kind of site you wish you had stumbled upon a long time ago. It's the blog for those of us who want to "look and live great on a budget." A self-proclaimed expert on "shopping, fashion trends, blogging, fashion advice for REAL women, and the use of Jedi mind tricks to reduce credit card interest rates," Kathryn Finney's blog has become so popular it's led to a book (How to Be a Budget Fashionista) and countless television segments, radio interviews, and feature stories. But even without such an impressive intro, Finney's blog is sure to be one of your top ten favorite sites.

With a shopping fetish to which we can all relate and a writing style that sounds like you're talking to your girlfriend, The Budget Fashionista makes for a good read. With up-to-date beauty info (Sonia Kashuk 'Sheer Magic' Minerals for Target), important fashion trends (Vera Wang Comes to Kohls Department Stores), and a plethora of online coupons, it becomes a fantastic, don't-miss-a-post read. If you want a taste of what you can expect from this fashionista's blog, check out yesterday's post titled The Budget Fashionista in the News. --Emily

P.S. Love the red boots, and the deal she got on them proves she's a girl after my own heart!
