Video: Jane by Design Blogger Challenge Part I

Well ladies, here it is! My very first "haul" video for ABC Family's Jane by Design blogger challenge (details here).

For our first challenge, we were given $50 to shop for whatever we wanted. I used my money to create three celebrity-inspired outfits using items that I picked up at the clearance racks at one of my favorite stores.

If you have a minute to help me out, please give a shout-out to The Budget Babe on the Jane by Design Facebook page! You can also upload your own haul videos (a great way to gain exposure if you're a blogger). And thank you if you already have, your support means a lot!

This is not a sponsored campaign or anything. The winning blogger gets a mention on the show and gets to choose one of their readers to be featured on the style site.
