I really do wear those clothes I find thrifting. Nothing thrills me more than finding something that fits and looks good for a couple of dollars.
Take this black/cream dress for instance. I paid $2 for it at the Bridgemill sale a few weeks ago.
I pulled it on over my clothes to see how it might fit and I could tell that it would work out just fine. I had in mind to wear it over black leggings and wear flip-flops with it. Breezy and casual is the look I was going for.
Turns out to be one of my fave outfits. It’s cool and cute at the same time. I wasn’t at all sure I wanted to wear leggings again. Usually when you’ve been through one fad fashion, it might be a good idea to skip it the 2nd time around, but I’ve seen other women my age pull it off, so I thought I can do that too! I do like it and will wear it again. It’s really comfy too.
With my yardsale mother of pearl necklace and earrings that I picked up for about $2 or $3 (at 2 different sales), this is one cheap….umm….inexpensive outfit. And I love frugal!
Check out these black and silver flip-flops which have turned out to be some of my faves this year. I got them at the beach in Destin at Beall’s Outlet. Have you ever been there? My sister and Susan love that store and so when I was down there camping with them, I had to check it out too. Got these for about $8 on sale, since we hit it on sale day. See those rosettes on the top? Those are black zippers rolled up in a flower! Isn’t that cool? I thought that was a fabulous idea for a flip-flop look. You could totally copycat that in any color.
So, that’s my frugal outfit of the day. Are you shopping thrift these days? I do, every chance I get. In fact, I found the cutest little consignment shop in Kennesaw that my friend, Judy, took me too. I’ll have to show you what I found there. Great name brands too!
