Watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is such a luxurious escape, minus some of the drama, of course. The women really bring it with their hair, makeup, outfits, and even the home decor. Glamour is the name of the game, or so it seems. Yes, they all have some professional help here and there with stylists and makeup artists, but sometimes, the Housewives are just like us on their quest for budget-friendly finds. In fact, Crystal Kung Minkoff told E! all about her surprisingly affordable fashions that she wears on the show.

The RHOBH star revealed, "My last confessional look had a $38 top. The top before that was under $200. And my first look was under $300. This season, it was very intentional because the show is all about glamour and I get that and it's really important but you can have glamour on a budget."

The Bravolebrity explained, "It's really about feeling confident knowing that you can wear those kinds of things that are not necessarily expensive but knowing that you feel good in it and that's my philosophy. I don't necessarily feel better in something that's more expensive. So, I'm very intentional about putting on things that are affordable and letting everyone know that you can be in a Housewives confessional in something that's under $40."

Crystal elaborated, "It's about feeling okay about it. I grew up in Northridge with immigrant parents and we were on a budget and I'm the ultimate Maxxinista. I love TJ Maxx. I love an outlet. I love a discount. I love Costco. I mean, my clothes are a majority from Costco. I wear a lot of Costco clothes. I swear to God."
