Fashion Week Fete for The Budget Fashionista

Kathryn Finney, Carson Kressley, Roshumba Williams

Fashion Week is a whirlwind of fabulous events and fun fetes but one of the finest of this week was the Fifth Anniversary of The Budget Fashionista

More than 500 guests turned out to celebrate...some budget-conscious and some not-so-much, including Carson Kressley (seriously, how great is "How to Look Good Naked"? Love Carson) and Roshumba Williams (above).

"My goal was to create a fun, fabulous Fashion Week party that celebrates REAL women with REAL budgets,” said Finney. “Frugal is the new black, and the incredible turnout and support from my friends and colleagues demonstrated that my advice for getting the most out of your fashion budget is needed now more than ever.”

We departed the party with a fun Payless“I Love Shoes” tote filled with smart but stylish indulgences like Dearfoamslippers, Spanx's budget shapewear line "Assets", Febreze fabric freshener, Dashing Diva nail polish and more.

If you're looking for a great book on style for less, I can't recommend Kathryn's book highly enough; click here to buy on Amazon for a very budget friendly $10.36.
