Thrifty Thursday Week 7: Foxy Folksy meets Marvin the Martian

14 Apr

It’s week 7 of Thrifty Thursday and I found this awesome foxy Folksy dress from Platos Closet! This cream tunic dress by Lucky Brand has this cool vintage looking rose stitching.  I paired the dress with these leather ponytail gloves that I got when we went to Cherokee, TN last summer for about two bucks.

This new dress with the tags still on retails for $119, I got it for $15.

What I am most excited about though that I got in this weeks hunt was these totally rockin’ “Marvin the Martian” style boots by Blowfish Malibu that I also scored at Plato’s. These were new as well and retail for about $40 but I got them for $10!

What fashion deals have you run up on lately?

Thrifty Thursday Week 6: Farm Girl Fabulous

It’s Thrifty Thursday week 6! This weeks look was inspired by my upcoming move to the country. So I call this look farm girl fabulous!

I spent about $5.50 and this is what I got!


Ralph Lauren men’s tuxedo shirt $3.50

American Eagle Outfitters weaved belt $2.00

Grand Total: $5.50


I am lovin’ this shirt! This is right in line with the style trend “boyfriend Clothes”,  except this is not my boyfriend’s shirt, cause I don’t have one, well maybe it was someone else’s boyfriend’s shirt, so that counts! Thanks to whomever’s shirt this was for passing it down, It’s fabulous!

Do you like to wear your husband’s or boyfriend’s clothes?

Thrifty Thursday Week 5: Tangerine Dream

It’s week 5 of Thrifty Thursday and this week I was searching for color! Oh, glorious Orange, such a great color. Orange makes you feel like you have a tan, even when you don’t and the big floppy hat  is a trendy hit this season. I put these two items together and presto, a tangerine dream!

This week I spent $14.50, not too shabby!

Thrifted Ann Taylor sundress $8

Wide brim floppy hat (Forever 21) $6.50

It’s all about the color ladies, be Bold and Beautiful:)

Thrifty Thursday Week 4-Island Girl

It’s week 4 of Thrifty Thursday and I call this look- Island Girl. I spotted these neat and super comfy little brown gauchos that tie up on the side and thought that I would pair them with this light and airy crocheted and cotton shirt.

The bracelets however are not thrift…I saw this bark roll at Jo-Ann Fabrics and have been wanting to make a bracelet out of it, so in the pic I am wearing my super easy and interesting Bark Wonder Woman bracelets.

Bark Roll (find it at Jo-Ann Fabrics)

Cut to wrist length, leave enough room to glue on velcro tabs

Now you're ready to Rock that Bark Bracelet!
