Thrifty Fashions

This is a different kind of “thrifty” post than I normally do, but I’ve been busy working on this…Blog 196
…or supervising little man’s work on this anyway :)

You will have to wait to see the rest of the story…
---------------------------------------------------------------------
This morning while getting dressed…I was so excited about my new spring outfit! 
Then I was even more excited when I realized how cheap it was!!

I decided maybe it would make a good thrifty tips post,
but as I turned back in the house…I saw this…Blog 197

THIS is why I L-O-ve that song “From My Front Porch Looking In


Blog 199

Now understand that if I hadn’t just listened to a sermon that touched on vanity…well…I would have cropped my face and hair right out this pic…it did not look like this in real life…or at least I’m telling myself that!

Copy of Blog 200
…maybe I missed the real point of the vanity thing…

…and…what do you know
…these two handsome men are dressed in thrifty finds too… 
Blog 198   

Here’s a few random tips…
- Rely on thrift items for basics…other than jeans…
Notice when your basics are getting worn…and begin looking for your size in that color of pant, short, skirt…
- Go often…
If you only have a little time…choose to only look at a few sections each time
- Leave empty handed sometimes
Only buy what you love and what will work
-For yourself -make sure it “fits like a glove”
If it is a little too long, short, tight, big…leave it there!
-For your little ones…stock up!
I buy clothes ahead of season and store in boxes by size…some things will not work out, but I will resale them now problem…I rarely HAVE to go shopping for the little guy…I just go the closet
-For your man…just hang it in the closet.
If he’s anything like mine…he won’t even notice the new additions…he’ll just grab his dress clothes and put it on.

Well…I could go on, but my hard working man needs me to push the gas pedal in while he tunes the carb…this is the only time he opens the door for me before I get in…so see ya!

Oh…wait…to redeem me from the Sears Catalog looking photos…here’s our thrifty Easter pic…Spring and Summer 2010 005

Love that pretty black and white polka dot top!! "Leave empty handed." SUCH a good tip. I try to remember that one. :) I'm visiting from Rhoda's party. :)

There aee so many great clothes out there in the second hand market that I CAN'T shop retail. Love the Easter picture.

I love your finds but I have to say I was just as excited about your putting the dollar signs on the photos. Last week I did a post about finding clothing at Goodwill. It would have looked so much cuter showing the dollar signs on the photos, like you did. Thanks for the inspiration.
