how would you suggest a 26yr old mom get more classicly fashionable on a budget? I can't afford the $100 things I've found myself wanting! Any suggestions?

On being classically fashionable that's easy. Think of the classiest person you knowLet's say Audrey HepburnIf she were around today, what kind of outfit do you think she would wearThen modify your outfit to make it up to standard.
The budget, however, will make shopping seem daunting. But it's not. Our favorite option would be shopping vintage. Don't worry about the fit so much as you can always take them to your seamstress to have them altered to a more modern fit. 
If your not that all enthralled by the thought of hunting through racks of pre-warn clothing, where do you live? If it's in a city you can always go to department store outlets like Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off Fifth, Neiman Marcus Last Call, et cetera. Be wary of chains like Forever 21 and Charlotte Rouse no matter what anyone tells you.
Stores like J. Crew and Banana Republic are great too, seeing as they almost always have sales.

For the brave, try TJ Maxx/Marshalls/Burlington Coat Factory/Filene's Basement --- It takes time to sift through the drek, but there are some really amazing finds... I found a Ralph Lauren suede jacket a few years ago for $25... awesome AND gorgeous :-)
