Ok, so I wasn't able to get that decorating post up in time... maybe Monday? Anyway, anyone who's visited this blog for any length of time knows how much I LOVE Goodwill and I love fashion! I would say that I definitely put thought and effort into my clothes-- I was raised to believe that it was important to look your best-- and to do so on a tight budget! If you look back in my posts labeled Dressing or even my "What To Wear When Expecting" Pregnancy posts, you will see a plethora of my Goodwill and yardsale steals. Turns out I'm not the only Southern gal who loves a good deal. Jen over at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam is doing a Frugal Fashionista Fashion Show today and I am linking up. I was kindof bummed because this isn't my best Goodwill outfit, but I didn't have time to take another picture! So here goes!
Shirt: Anne Taylor via Goodwill $1
Sweater: White House Black Market via Yardsale $1
Jeans: (not my fave :( ) JLo via Goodwill $1
Total Minus Shoes and Belt: $3!
Shoes and belt purchased retail-- 6.50 for belt and around 7 or 8 for the shoes. I love these strappy sandals, they remind me of the ones that Jennifer Grey wore on Dirty Dancing... Anyway, as you can see, you DO NOT have to pay alot for nice clothes. I love to buy a plain shirt and dress it up with a wide belt. I turned my friend onto this, she was really feeling down about her recent weight gain and couldn't believe when I showed her what a wide belt can do for the waist line! It really cinches it all in :)
Next in the series "How We Make It Work" will be hair and skin :)
