Style on a Budget: Cheetah Print Dress & Flats

**Not a sponsored post.
I had a job interview last week with a local gently used clothing store that specializes in trending women's wear. I turned to my closet after I got the call and set up the interview, and after some thought, decided I needed a new, cute and trendy outfit. With only $20 to spare, I freaked out just a little.
I took a trip down to my local DD's Discounts, and was in heaven - so many great deals and items - even stuff for the home! I had a specific type of outfit in mind though - I was looking for a solid bottom of some sort, either skirt or slacks, and a cheetah print top. I searched, and searched and tried on, but no luck - I couldn't find cheetah print anywhere but leggings. Just as I was about to give up, I came across this short, cheetah print dress by Speed Control New York. It's lightweight made from 100% polyester, and even has pockets! It features an elastic waistline, and darted blouse. It's a little short - ending just above my knee, but still provides good coverage. Dress damage - $6. No luck on shoes at DD's...
Right next door to this DD's, was a Shoeland - a favorite of mine :)
There, I found these dark brown flats by Herstyle. These flats are sueded, and have a pointed front as seen in the photo. Comfortable, cute and affordable. Shoe damage - $10.

So... For less than $20, I got a new, trendy outfit to wear to my job interview (or out on the weekends). Where do you like to shop on a budget?
