On today's Oprah Show, a bunch of frumpy suburban moms were given complete makeovers using - get this - AFFORDABLE clothing from budget-friendly stores! Instead of heading to high-end boutiques, they hit up stores like Kohl's, JCPenney, Gap, and Old Navy for cheap, chic finds.
All we can say is it's about time. Too often, these makeover shows trade some poor sap's dirty sweats for pricey, impractical designer duds - which means the victim might look good in the moment, but go back to their errant ways once the cameras stop rolling. And people at home are left with big question marks hovering over their heads.
If you missed the show, there's amazing play-by-play coverage on Oprah.com of all the makeovers, plus stylist Lloyd Boston's wardrobe essentials, no-fuss hairstyles from celebrity stylist Ken Paves, and makeup essentials for gals on the go from makeup artist Joanna Schlip.
Other highlights include a how-to video for tying a scarf using a hacking knot (accomplished by halving a long scarf, feeding the straggling ends through the resulting loop, and cinching the knot up to the neck), a fab ensemble from Old Navy's new spring collection (we told you it was cute first!), and five ways to wear a white button-down shirt.
Bravo to budget makeovers. Who knows, maybe next time they'll enlist the help of budget fashion bloggers...
