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?)
I have had the privilege of spending a few days at Nashville’s Opryland Hotel this week for a blogging conference. I can’t tell you how fun it’s been to connect with some of my most special friends (who live in my computer.) Another highlight has been the number of bloggers who have shown me their Frugal Fashionista outfits, or have shared that they first entered a Goodwill because of my encouragement. I just LOVE that, and one of the reasons why today is your day.
Last week, I asked those of you who did not have a blog but still wanted to participate to send me your photos. Many of you did and I have decided to give you a day all to yourself. (And because I didn’t have the time during the conference to download all the pictures. :)). So, if have been meaning to send me your pictures and descriptions, please do. I will include them all in a separate post.
Since this post is all about your outfits today, I am only sharing one outfit, and it’s in real time, as in, this is what I am wearing right now as I type. (Nothing like planning ahead.)
If it were spring and I was still doing the 30 Day Shred, I would wear this sleeveless shirt and boast about the whopping $2.50 I spent on the whole outfit. Both the shirt and the Anne Klein jeans were complete $1 treasure scores at a yard sale, with the necklace racking up two whole quarters. BUT, since I am all about full disclosure, the gray second hand cardigan that I planned on wearing must be in a heap on my bedroom floor – 7 1/2 hours away, which left me a wee bit chilly. So, my $2.50 outfit “skyrocketed” to $17.50 with the addition of my $14.99 TJ Maxx find. Remember when I was on the hunt for an asymmetrical sweater? Well, this was the one I decided on, and it has served me well this winter, but it broke my personal $15 limit. Oh well, sometimes we all need to just live it up a little and “splurge.” 😉
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.
I do have some guidelines you need to follow if you are linking up. Each post needs to adhere to the few requests below or the posts will be deleted.
- Remember, I love awesome deals from the store, but at least part of your main wardrobe pieces need to be second hand/thrifted in order to link up.
- Just link up one post and link directly to your Frugal Fashionista post, not your home page URL. This will let everyone find your FF post months from now.
- Please mention our Frugal Fashionista Fashion Show and link back to my blog url in your post so that every one can join in on the frugal fun.
