Since she has the catchy Frugal Fashionista tag, I just went with Frugal Fashion Friday. What I would like to show case are my "fashions" found at Garage Sales, Thrift Stores, and Swaps. Unfortunately I don't have any one to snap my photos on Friday am since I leave so early in the morning. The Reluctant Teenager and I are working out a deal to have him snap some of me on a weekend or evening so you can see my whole outfit.
I love black, it's a main stay in my wardrobe. Fly Guy calls it my "urban camo" and he is right. I feel taller, thinner, more confident when wearing black. It's just how I am. I have been trying to introduce some color into my wardrobe. Seriously, this has been more difficult than it seems, though I did get a compliment the other day on my "not black" outfit.
Here are a few tops I picked up for just a few dollars each.
Lane Bryant Sheer Shirt, Brand New w/Tags attached. $3.00.(retailed for $49.50)
Soft Surroundings Sheer Shirt, Brand New w/ Tags $3.00 (retailed for $148.00) Silk!
Lane Bryant T Shirt, New w/o tag. $1.00. Retail ($29.50)
New w/Tags Apt. 9 Shirt $2.00 (Retail 28.00)
New w/o tags Apt. 9 Shirt $3.00.
Over $250.00 worth of new clothes for $12.00. All purchased at a yard sale...
How is that for a Frugal Score?
On aside note, a co-worker pulled me to the side to tell me that "she" had gotten up on Saturday and went to yard sales and a rummage sale. She said I inspired her with my out fits and finds. This woman has never been to a yard sale before, spent $12.00 on two brand new pair of Etienne Aigner sandals, a purse, two tops, three dress pants, a pair of jeans and two outfits for her son. She was giddy from the thrill of the hunt! Ladies and Gents, I believe we have a convert!
Happy Treasure Hunting....
