How did Fran afford all these designer outfits on a Nanny's salary? I know room and board was included, but even so, some of these truly iconic outfits require MAD cash stacks

People ask this ALL the time.

Within the show’s Universe her clothes aren’t supposed to be seen as designer/expensive. The other characters see her as tacky and cheap.

One of the first things we learn about Fran in the pilot is the fact that she doesn’t shop retail, she got all her clothes on sale.

Then, there’s the episode where we learn that her cousin is fashion designer Todd Oldham.

Also, there was that one episode where she’s in Paris with Mr.Sheffield and he takes her shopping at the Chanel Boutique lol.
