Recently my good friend Rachel got engaged. Gina Z. of Zeidler Photography did a mini-engagement session. Check out Rachel’s oh-so-fancy look. Rachel is a big bargain shopper and a coupon queen as you will see on her blog. So I thought you would be interested in how to achieve this fancy fall look on a budget.

Get Rachel’s look!
shoes-$24.99 on sale at ($34.99 regular).
Rachel says you don’t ever have to pay for shipping by simply opting to get your shoes shipped to a payless store near you. Her other tip is to do a search online for “payless coupon codes” to enter at checkout to get a fancier deal! ATTENTION! Thanks to Oprah, you can get 50% off your entire purchase at Payless before close tomorrow.

dress-$24.99 at New York and Company.
Rachel’s tip for this is to apply for a credit card to get 20% off your purchase instantly plus three more 20% off coupons. She says the best thing is to get a store card and pay it off at the store right after you use it.

Rachel says she rarely pays for mascara, face wash or foundation by shopping at Walgreens with coupons. A fancy deal she wanted to share with you—Rimmel Cosmetics are currently 50% off their normal price at Walgreens. To make the deal even better, she says to use the $1/1 coupon from the 8/23 or 9/13 RP. To see what RP means, check out her post on coupons (since I’m still learning coupon code too!)

tightsJCPenney for little to nothing.
Tights are cute and WARM! JCPenney is having a great promotion right now. You can get $10 off a purchase of $10 or more by using coupon code GET4BTS when shopping online!

dog and cute fiancé-priceless!

Now you know how to get the look, but you can also get fancy photos like this for yourself just in time for the holidays. Gina Z. has three spots left on her mini session November 8. Mention and you will receive a free 8×10 photo of your choice! That’s fancy!
