Frugal and Fabulous Friday

One of the things that I am most often complemented on is my style!
I LOVE fashion, but what I love more... A BARGAIN ON FASHION!!
I'm not talking about Splurge {$978} vs. Steal {$79}, I'm talking about fashions that you find for next to nothing!
A few years back I came across a "thrifty fashion" blog {I have scoured to find the original inspiration blog}, much like this one... of course my first thought was... "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!"
It's what I do!
It's who I am!!
I could literally right a book on this!!!
There are few things that I would say I'm GREAT at, but I WILL say that I am GREAT at finding the very best deals!
Since I came across that blog, my intentions have been to share with you all of these frugal and fabulous finds, but hey, better late than never, right!!

So, today I will start!!

I think, for some reason, people do not give thrift stores a chance.
They are TREASURE TROVES, people! If you haven't been lately... RUN, don't walk to your nearest thrift store!  Often times you will find items with tags still attached but even something that has been worn once or twice has amazing life still left in it!
And Clearance racks at your favorite store... I have gotten to the point where I won't shop a rack unless it is at least 70% off! {thrift snob!}

So, here is my first of what I hope will be many examples...

Jeans: SO {Kohl's} $6.30
Shirt: Apt. 9 {Kohl's} $3.57 
{notice the adorable sequin detail around the collar and cuffs!}
Necklace: ? {Kohl's} $1.87
Belt: ? {Kohls}4.08
Shoes: Anne Klein {Goodwill}$3.75
Total: $19.57
{and entire outfit complete with accessories for under $20!}

*My secret at Kohls... don't look at any racks accept the 80% off or more and I make sure I have a coupon for 15%-30% off on top of that!

I can't wait to show you the thrifty dress and shoes I am altering!!!
