If you recall, I had a guest writer, Emily from Le Quaintrelle, on my blog for Frugal Fashion Friday this past week. She gave tips on how to successfully thrift store shop for clothes (in case you missed it, you can find it here). I took on the challenge and headed to the Goodwill on Friday afternoon, keeping all of my newly learned tips in mind. I found a brown skirt and a braided suede belt… My metamorphosis this week is transforming my skirt (that cost $4.50) into several different outfits. Wish me luck!
This locket is one of my favorites… as it holds old pictures of both of my late Grandmothers. It is very special to me… just as they will always be.
So… for $4.50 (and a few items I already had in my closet) I was able to make 6 different outfits… (and probably more, but I was getting the hunch that poor hubby was tired of taking pictures of me. haha) I think my biggest lesson in thrifting this week is not to purchase something unless you have a vision for it. If you can’t pair it with something you already have… then, as Emily says, you’re flushing your money right down the toilet. 😉

Happy Monday Y’all!
