They love to have items that are from inexpensive stores or discount stores so long as they are great pieces." Angela traded in her old clothes for an outfit that included a designer dress, designer heels, and a leather bag. "It was so fun," Gretta explains, who also traded in her clothes for a whole new outfit. You can watch part 1 and part 2 on the Rachael Ray Show.
