What's Your Fashion Secret?

Dear Readers: When someone asks you, "Where'd you get that [dress, purse, lipstick, etc.]?" - What do you say? Do you tell them the truth or do you make up a wee white lie...? Share your secret in the comments.

I usually tell people I 'got it at an online store' just so they don't know where I shop so they don't go look for the same thing :-P

If I bought something on ebay, I'll just tell the person a store name that I know carries the same thing! Its just a reflex though! For some reason I can never spit out Ebay! lol! How strange...

I always get complimented on my dresses and when I tell the truth (half of them are from Forever 21) they all gawk bc they can't believe great looks can be had for so cheap.

I usually tell the truth. When I tell a little white lie, it is written all over my face. Bad at poker, too.

I always tell the truth too. It's the styling of the entire outfit that makes it, not just one piece!

I always tell people where I got stuff because I'm such a bargain shopper and I'm more than happy to share my great finds with other people so they don't have to spend too much either!

I tell them where I got it which doesn't mean they can get one like it since sometimes I shop at thrift stores and discount stores... Plus, even if they have the same item, they can't buy style! ;-)
