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.

Since the jacket itself could be dressed down for a more conservative look, which is not what I wanted, I decided to pair it with some fun, large purple earrings and a bold patterned shirt.

Pairing a simple jacket, with a bold shirt, allows me to lean a bit towards dressing out of my comfort zone.

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.

  • Remember, I love awesome deals from the store, but at least one of your core wardrobe pieces must be second hand/thrifted in order to link up.
  • Please 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.
