Samantha Cassel (left) and Chelsy Reed are savvy shoppers who know a bargain when they see one. They also know how to take those bargains and turn them into stylish creations. Samantha jazzed up a white dress from the clearance rack with a belt and strips of sheer black fabric. Chelsy used lace to transform a pair of shorts from Walmart. Both girls competed in “Decorate Your Duds,” Chelsy in the senior division and Samantha in the junior division.
