Are you new to my Frugal Fashionista series ? Find out how I dress for less with designer outfits for mere pennies on the dollar. Yes, all outfits from head to toe are less than $15, and did I mention…second hand?)
Welcome to our Frugal Fashionista “Fashion Show” Link Up. I’m excited to see some of the treasures you all have found.
This week, I decided to stretch my color palette a bit, and wake up my wardrobe with some bright and colorful patterns. I tend to stick to solids with bold accessories, but I had a lot of fun stepping out a bit with this $3.75 top from Goodwill. I always look for unique accents around the sleeves and this one had just that.
If color or patterns make you nervous, don’t start quite as bold as I did. Begin with smaller prints or a brighter hue of color than you are used to, and go from there. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy this new trend.
When I purchased this thrifted jacket, I didn’t own any thing in deep purple and I knew it was a color I wanted to experiment with in my wardrobe.
Try it, you won’t be disappointed, and don’t think you can’t pull it off. Just give it a try. That’s one of the reasons I love second hand shopping so much. Buying things that you would never think of wearing before, now becomes a reality for only a few dollars.
I can’t wait to see what you all have to share.
Come link up and inspire us all. The link will be open for a few days, so you have time today to gather some outfits and share.
If you are linking up, I do have a few guidelines to follow or your posts will be deleted.
