Stars Like Bargains, Too!

11/01/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

We love a bargain and obviously look forward to everything new at Target. And now we know that we have that in common with Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell (left). She attended a hotel opening in San Diego on Monday wearing a brand-new Behnaz Sarafpour for Target strapless dress that is only $45! She’s not the only celeb shopping “off the rack!” We always covet Ashlee Simpson’s style, but this time, we can afford it! After her last performance in Chicago she was spotted wearing an adorable Free People cord dress. It is $109 and looks cute with tights, leggings, or even over jeans (although maybe forgoing pants is the real moneysaver!). Bargain shopping is a trend we can always feel good about!

I think Kristen Bell’s dress is cute. And I’m glad to see that she still watches how much money she spends. Plus, it shows she is smart, because I’ve seen some hideous dresses on celebrities and I’m sure they paid thousands of dollars for those ugly dresses they will only wear one time; so good for her for finding a cute, inexpensive dress! Also, it’s unlikely that another celeb will show up wearing the same dress!

I like both dress but the white one is epecially beautiful. It’s nice to finally see celebrities wear something others would were and not clothes that aren’t even that nice.

I love frugal stars.

A recent issue of People magazine, featured a shot of Rachel Bilson in a knit cap from Target!

What’s up with all the stars in Target?

By the way, I will link to this post.

Hey, it’s a good way for them to stay rich if they don’t spend their money in a crazy way!

So Ashley’s dress is ONLY $109?? Wow, that sure is cheap. Yeah right! I don’t know about you guys, but if I buy a dress for that price (and that rarely happens) it’s not a bargain at all, it’s a luxury. And I’m sure this applies to most girls my age (or Ashley’s).

I agree with mono, what is a bargain to everyone! I mean there are people who don’t have $100 to spend on dresses, I mean if it was $40 then yeah it a bargain. I mean with prices sky rocketing to God knows where, I am sure that a $100 hurts me in the pockets! The other gripe I have it’s not for every size, everything you see here is a size 0-6 what about the rest who have thighs, a butt and chest?

I think the dress on the left is beautiful. The one on the right is tacky in my opinion. Hm.. it’s interesting that the cheaper dress is the one that is more flattering. It’s very classy.

First of all Ashley’s dress is not cheap. $109 can be used for many things but that ugly dress is not one of them. The sad thing is, that will probably be the first and last time she’ll ever wear it. The dress from target is much cuter and it is actually something that you could wear more than once.

Ashley and Jessica simpson are too lame to comment on…but I will say this, the only thing special about them, are their looks, and their current bank accounts.
