Thrift Store: WORKING IT!

If you have never been to a thrift store before and you are thinking about going in then think no longer. I never thought I would be thrift store shopping the way that I am now but It has really became a fun hobby of mines.

Some people think that they are too good to shop there. Some think that I would rather buy it new. Some just have the money to go on big shopping trips and spend tons of money. I used to be part of that some until I went in the thrift store myself and seen the quality of clothing that's in there.

Many think that thrift stores have old, out of style and out of date clothing that nobody wants. You will surprised. I keep telling you!!!. There are people that simply just give there clothes away because they are too little not necessarily because they are out of date or style.

If you fit in to one of the categories above then you have to change your way of thinking if you ever decide to thrift shop. Your frame of mind when in these type stores will help you to pick up many items that you probably would look over just because it's not new.

If it's name brands that you are looking for then guess what; thrift stores carry name brands as well. No I'm not just talking out the side of my neck. I actually know because I have purchased several name brand pieces.

I wish I would have took a picture of my closet before I started thrift store shopping so that you can see how much my wardrobe has expanded due to thrift stores. I wash them, drop in some fabric softener, dry, iron and put them on as if they were brand new when I bought them.

No holes, cute clothes, rock on girl!!!!!

Tan Sweater $2.99 (Thrift Store)
Pocket Denim Jeans $3.99 (Thrift Store)
Boots $34.99 (Payless)
Bracelet $1.00 (Z's Outlet)

Thrift Store Haul #2: 35 pieces for $95.00

It was such a pretty day today here in Alabama. Not too hot and not too cold. So after my Saturday morning cleaning, I took a trip to the thrift store. When I go in second hand stores, I never expect to find much but always leave with much.

With this haul I was able to purchase 35 articles of clothing for $95.00; which you will see me model. I found some cute pieces. As I am looking through the clothes, all I can say to myself is why would somebody give this away. Oh well it's mine's now!!

Thank You Thrift Store for expanding my wardrobe.

$1.00 Accessories

If you haven't noticed by now, I try to cut corners in anyway I can when it comes to cost. So I had to share with you this store that we have in our area named Z's Outlet.

They sell $1.00 jewelry. I don't mean just a few pieces of jewelry but the whole entire store is packed down with all kinds of jewelry. If you love jewelry you will feel like you are in heaven. I went a little crazy in there but hey that's what we do; especially when the price is only $1.00. RACK UP!!!!

So if you are ever in Birmingham, Alabama do yourself a favor and stop by Z's Outlet. They have every color under the sun and not just for you but your little girl as well. My daughter has naturally curly hair so I twisted my daughters hair all over and needed some hair acessories for it. When I went in there it was just my intention to buy me some jewelry not knowing that they sold hair accessories for children as well.

So now she is really loving her hair with the pretty headbands and bows and because everyone is telling her that her hair is cute.

Accessories make the outfit pop!!!!

Online Shopping: Embellished Long Sleeve Shirt Dress $8.78

I went online and thought I was ordering a black dress. When It arrived I tried it on and it was too short to be a dress so I made it a shirt. I paired it with a pair of skinny jeans that I already had in my closet.

When skinny jeans first came out, I didn't see a reason to buy them. I thought "why buy skinny jeans if I am already skinny? I seen other women the same size as me with skinny jeans on so I finally had a change of heart and bought a few pair. It took me several months to wear them because I didn't have the right kind of shoes.

Skinny Jeans $9.00
Embellished Long Sleeve Shirt Dress $8.78 (ordered online)
Black Booties $34.99
Silver Bracelets $5.00 each
Whole Outfit $62.77
The whole outfit came together perfect.

$10 Dollar Mall: Pajama Sets

$10 Dollar Mall
The best kept hidden secret is the $10 Dollar mall.  I really needed pajamas. I was the one sleeping in a big t shirt and jogging pants. Yes I am gulity of that. When I was thinking of ways to expand my wardrobe well pajamas came to my mind. Pajamas are apart of your sleeping wardrobe too.
So here I was on google seaching for low cost pajamas and the only adult pajamas that I was finding was at least $20.00 for a set or more. Well I refuse to pay that much for something to sleep in so I ran across $10 Dollar Mall website.
I was able to find 3 whole sets of pajamas for $10.00 each. They are colorful and they are cute. I will be rocking these on my way to bed.

Head on over and get you a pair!!!!!! >

Guess what???? I also found my daughter 2 pair of pajama sets as well for $10.00 each. She loves them and they also had her favorite animated characters on them.

15 Dollar Store: Ruffled Animal Print Chiffon Blouse $15.00

Yesterday I did a blog post about the 15 Dollar Store and all the items that they have available for just $15.00. So today I just wanted to bascially do an update. As I told you I am a customer of 15 Dollar Store so here is one of the blouses that I have purchased from them. I ordered the blouse a while ago but Its one of my favorite pieces in my closet.I wore it with a black skirt that I already had in my closet.
Ruffled Animal Print Chiffon Blouse
I fell in love with the print but I was not so sure about the ruffles. My grandma still had me in ruffle dresses up until I was 14 (don't tell anybody)lol!! So when I seen it had ruffles on it I almost didn't buy it but I needed some blouses and I liked the print so I bought it. I absolutely love the blouse now.

I spent a lot of time online. I  knew I needed more clothes so I started searching for online sites that have really cheap clothing. A ton of search results came up but one caught my eye. The 15 Dollar Store.

The name of the website alone will catch anybody attention. Now of course in my own mind I was saying to myself there is no way everything on this site is $15.00. I mean really $15.00 is just too cheap.

So I click on the site, I search through the whole site and guess what EVERYTHING IS $15.00!!!

This is what my fashion blog is all about; finding affordable items to add to our closet without breaking the bank. Now I know I have to be realistic and say that everything that you find that you may like is not going to be cheap. Trust me I understand.

Fashion is all about options. You can shop where you want and when you want to and buy what ever it is that you want and sometimes you don't care about the price. In my case "I do". Why not buy it for less if you can get it for less.

15 Dollar Store has:

  • Tops
  • Jeans
  • Sweaers
  • Denim
  • Dresses
  • Jackets
  • Outerwear
  • Swimwear
  • Active Wear
  • Junior Plus
  • Shoes
  • Handbags
  • Purses
  • Wallets
  • Sunglasses
  • Belts
  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Watches
  • Jewelry
That's why I love them.......

Check them out you will be surprise at what you find to add to your closet. The15DollarStore, Inc.
