Hosting videos for Hello Style has been a dream come true, and representing Marie Claire even more so! It has been amazing reading all of your comments, and responding to as many as I can. It has also made me acutely aware of the overwhelming reality that we all have incredibly different budgets. But no matter what you can spend, focus on developing an eye for trends, and learning which pieces to invest in.

Take cues from the videos and the magazine, and shop for similar items wherever works for you. This will make you feel like your wardrobe is on-trend, and it won't break the bank! I have always been taught to splurge on good shoes and bags, but every now and then, you can find a luxe bag for less. It's important to research, plan and know what you want before you hit the store! I also like to set shopping goals, so if I am saving up for a leather jacket and I know that's on the horizon, it's easier for me to avoid those little impulse buys that add up so quickly. I also believe in visualization, so consider putting a picture of the desired item on your bathroom mirror or in your wallet. It'll remind you why you're being so careful with your spending.

This week's Big Girl in a Skinny World features lots of fabulous finds from The Webster for Target, a part of the newly-launched Shops at Target, which has some lovely plus-size options.

I hope you enjoy the episode, and I trust that during shopping trips hereafter, you won't feel stunted by your wallet, but rather guided by your perceptive eye.

Remember, you can't BUY style!
