There's no more powerful, jealousy-inducing response to people asking what you're wearing than to say, "Oh, this? You'll never guess how much it cost." We get a sick sort of satisfaction in playing this card with our outfits, whether it's revealing that we paid more for lunch than on our handbag or that our most-complimented dress was a mall-store find. Ahead, our roundup of cheap thrills that don't disappoint—no coupons, promo codes, or register-racing necessary!
