Frugal Fashion from Goodwill! Part 1

I wanted to pop on here quickly, before I even have the post completed, in case you are shopping for last minute holiday clothes, and you need a little encouragement and inspiration!!

 

I found a whole bag of trendy, frugal fashion at Goodwill the other day!!!

I have been seeing a lot of lace detail in sleeves on Pinterest lately,so I was really excited to find this top! Sorry for the washed out pic. I was in a hurry! I hope you can see the lace on the sleeves, and the elegant neckline.
Grey top $3.00! Jeans $4.oo! Necklace $2.99!

Here is a close up of the top and necklace

This top would be great for a casual holiday get together or even something a little fancier by adding a skirt and a little sparkle

Top number 2

I really like this little “baby doll” top from Cold Water Creek. And it was only $3.00 at Goodwill!!

This top can also be worn casual or dressy. I wore it with a casual look to a little holiday get together with some Christmas-y jewelry and cozy boots.

Here is another angle, but it really doesn’t due this top justice. It’s actually more flowy, as you can see a little better in the first pic of it.

You can’t tell in the pics, but the boots I’m wearing are quilted. Love that detail!! They are only $30 at Aeropostale!

My Frugal Fashion Shopping tips for today:

tip #1: Shop second hand stores like Goodwill If you’ve tried a time or two and been unsuccessful, keep trying!! Shop frequently and during less busy times, like weekdays.

Tip #2: Don’t fall into a Second Hand Store trap. They can seem like a good idea because their prices are a little lower than full price retail, but a little patience when shopping Goodwill and the clearance racks at your favorite department stores will yield more bang for you hard to come by bucks!

Tip #3: If you are trying to get back in the fashion loop like I am, you’re going to need a little direction and inspiration before shopping. Pinterest is perfect for that. I often peruse Pinterest, find a few favorites, and then try to find similar items at the store that I can make a little more modest.
