Frugal Fashionista: “Teeny Tiny Rocker Style”


I don’t know how many long time American Idol fans read this blog, but I do know many of you have heard of the amazing recording artist, Mandisa. She was one of the top finalists during season five. Her heart for the Lord, and sweet spirit permeated even Simon’s soul.

This weekend, she is at our church for Angela Thomas’s Beautiful Life conference, and of course, doing a concert. I was asked to be her “hostess” for the weekend, which basically means helping out in any way possible to make her weekend comfortable. Don’t worry, she’s not actually staying at our home. I don’t know if I would ever put her up for that kind of bedlam.

I have a few minutes  sitting in our church lobby, and knowing I have nothing profound to post, but something a bit fun. Since I haven’t done a Frugal Fashionista post for a few weeks, I thought I would let you glimpse my $10 outfit.

Yes, even for something special, I don’t veer from my frugal fashion calling. I call it my Teeny Tiny Rocker outfit because I am going to a concert, and the shirt is just a “bit” rocker-ish, isn’t it? 😉

Yes, the whole things was under $10.

Last time, I wore this shirt belted and really like that option, but I was rushing out the door to get here on time, and forgot to grab it. Yes, I even had to bring my make up with me and do it in the car.

This must be the life of a star. Hurry. Wait. Hurry. Wait.  🙂

I hope you have a fabulous Friday. I’ll let you know all about the wonderful concert.

    lol.. i love the “hello church bathroom”… i so knew that was where you were lol


  3. It looks awesome with it belted. Enjoy the concert.


  4. The peek-a-boo sleeves are so in right now. It’s a nice way to show skin without revealing too much (i.e., cleavage). The top looks great on you!

    You are in for a fun time! I have heard Mandisa twice at the MOPS Convention . She puts on a great show. Your blouse is perfect, enjoy


  6. I LOVE your thrift store top and the way you put the whole outfit together. I have a similar thrift store top that I bought @ Goodwill for $3.75. Wish I could be at your church conference and concert this weekend!

    I love the outfit! Also, I have missed your Frugal Fashionista posts….please keep them coming!! I get so many ideas from them 🙂



  8. Keep the frugal fashionista posts coming. They inspire me to go find my own instead of spending tons of money at the department store.

    I just want you to know that you inspire me! I have always enjoyed the frugal fashionista posts, but just stuck with what friends and family gave me for free, and buying jeans on sale. I am now pregnant with my fourth child and my maternity clothes from previous pregnancies were ruined, and the only ones friends had for free were winter pregnancy clothes. My husband has been saying that we will get me some more, but we never seem to have enough money for more than one article of clothing (new). This morning when he left for work I said I was going to spend a little over $20 to get something maternity. I look all my three littles with me to Goodwill and got three really cute maternity shirts, maternity shorts, and a cute stretchy skirt (technically not maternity, but it works!) for $18! Since my kids are so small I had them in the dressing room with me and they got excited about everything I tried on, I even got a few cheers when I decided to buy something! After we left, my six year old daughter told me “Mom, I’m so proud of you! You got clothes for when the baby’s in your tummy and you didn’t use a lot of money!” So thank you for your inspiration, I will be frequenting Goodwill from now on!

    YAY! That is so fun to hear. I am glad in some small way, I have inspired you to save in that way. I LOVE your precious children’s comments. Love that.


  10. I love that blouse! I think I prefer it without the belt, but it looks good either way.


  11. Love the combination with the belt – just lovely!
