Fashion Friday

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!


Here is what I did for UNDER $25. This is for all the items in the different looks you see. I scored them all in two different outings to Goodwill. I wanted to show you how to make your holiday looks classic, chic, and cheerful without spending a lot of money. I selected items that you could easily put in your work wardrobe or for a night out. The key to frugality in fashion is making every item functional and fun.

Week 1

Merona shirt $3.50, sigrid olson pants $3.50
Ann taylor Sweater $3.50 Black Tank $3.50, Sigrid Olson Pants $3.50


Black Ann Taylor Pants $3.50, Black PJ sport top $3.50
black banana pants, ann taylor sweater, pj tank

black Ann Taylor pants, Ann Taylor sweater, pj tank

merona, banana republic pants

Merona Top, Ann Taylor pants

I picked the classic black pants because you can wear them for years to come. I then found a fun top which I will show you how to layer next week. I think it is important to have a look at me item in your wardrobe and really $3.50 from Goodwill can you argue? It is not about what you save it is about what you spend. Think about it if you can find ways to cut your clothing budget down…. then you could pay towards the principles of your bills. This site is about saving everyday in everyway. You do not have to stop doing what you are doing just do it smarter. I mean I still a shopaholic but even my husband can’t argue with one $20 or less outfit a week  (usually $10.00 including the shoes.)

Total for all the outfits $21.00
