Conversation #115: Outfit overload

Necklace, local store, $4 (I get more compliments on this necklace than any other piece of jewelry I own) 
Looking back at these photos, I realize that I think I'm getting better at putting together outfits.  However, I still feel like my hair just looks a mess everyday.  I try so many different ways of styling it, but it always looks frizzy and full of fly-aways in photos.  Any tips out there?  Early in the year, maybe January and February, it was so dry here that I had a good run of awesome hairdays (although my skin was dying a slow parched death).  I hope that dry air hits again this season.  Until then, what do you do to fight frizz?

Ok, you are always SO cute! And what really impresses me is that you spend so little on your wardrobe... can you do a post on shopping tips? How often do you shop, where do you shop, do you have rules where you will only buy something if it is under X amount of dollars, ect... I would love to know how to get such a CUTE wardrobe so inexpensively.
