Recently on my blog, I've started a weekly feature called Frugal Fashion Friday where I share an outfit that is cheap. The goal: Under $30, which can be the price of a top at most store in the mall! I won't lie, sometimes I don't quite make it, other times, I'm way over - but that doesn't mean I'm not scoring good deals for awesome outfits. Today, I wanted to share some of them with you.
Perfect for a lunch date with friends and family, or a dressed up BBQ during the summer. I'm a huge believer that if you pair anything with pearls; you're on your way to a good outfit!
This came out at $31 for everything you see in the picture. I'd say that's a pretty good deal, even more so when you take into account the fact that some of these items are old. But I gotta admit, I got lucky by finding such cute shoes!
As you can tell, I got a little lucky on this outfit too - I got the shirt for free from someone who was getting rid of bags of clothes. I didn't think it was quite my style, but I decided to keep it still, after all it was a free tank top I could at least wear it to bed, but as it turns out, I adore this shirt!
The shoes were brand new and are super comfy.
The whole outfit came out at a total of $25 and that includes the adorable purse that I am in love with - everyone who seeks it asks me where I managed to snag it! They are always so disappointed when I tell them it was a thrift store find!
This shirt and the shoes are from La Chatue, which is a huge love of mine, though I got the shirt, shorts, and purse from a thrift store. The purse is a Vera Wang.
This outfit comes out at about $32 for everything, including the shoes and the purse. Not too bad, eh?
I've got to admit, this is one of my favorite outfits that I own. Perfect for the summer weather, which I have been enjoying as much as I can this year!
For everything in this outfit, I paid a total of $28 and that was over some time. The shirt featured here I've had for almost 3 years. I would say that it's a pretty good deal, wouldn't you?
And can we please just take a second to look at those shoes?
Of course, they're not the brand of shoes we all think of when we see red soles, but they're freakin' adorable and I absolutely love them to death, so that's all that matters when it comes down to it!
Shirt: $4 at Value Village
Jeans: $10 at Value Village
Sunglasses: $5 at Ardens (during a 3 for $15 sale)
Bracelet: $2 on Ebay
So, truth be told I failed this one when it came to my challenge on my own blog. My goal was to create an outfit for under $30. The boots alone are $50. Epic fail, but you know what? These boots are good quality winter/fall boots and are normally $150 - in the long run, I lucked out when I got them for $50, so I'll take that as a victory.
There you have it. My goal is to create affordable outfits that are adorable, so I can prove to people that you don't need to spend a lot. I have new updates (and even info on sales) every week.
