THRIFTY + TRENDY | It’s possible to look good for less than a gourmet salad

Yesterday morning I got dressed as I normally would, just throwing on anything that I felt went well together for a day of shopping and dining.ย Once I was ready I realized just how thrifty my outfit was. Granted, most of it did come from thrift shops, vintage stores and flea markets.

THRIFTY + TRENDY | It’s possible to look good for less than a gourmet salad

You know in middle to low range magazines where they have a whole spread dedicated to “dressing for less”? Well, I’ve got them beat in every way possible. What are their usual limits? Dressing for $100? $50? My outfit is $11. Don’t believe me? Check this out:

Jacket: free
Dress: $6
Purse: $2
Earrings: $1
Butterfly necklace: $1
Heart necklace: $1

TOTAL: $11

Of course, this doesn’t include my shoes. I am a firm believer in spending more money on shoes. That’s why these sandals were about $150 from Windsor Smith in Australia. Oh, and I did add a $15 chain necklace and $30 Quay sunglasses to my outfit but of course those are things you can do without.

I want to see how thrifty you can get with your fabulously stylish outfits. Send them to me at theladylikeleopard@gmail.com and I’ll make a post of my favourite ones.
