Frugal Fashionista Fashion Show

Balancing Beauty and Bedlam is hosting the Frugal Fashionista Fashion Show were fashionable outfits cost less than $15.00 total and must be second hand.

This FarmGirl loves to shop a garage sale and has several outfits that would qualify!  I have a friend that has frequent garage sales and will even let me try on stuff before purchasing; I call her "my personal shopper"!

I never shop the mall and would never pay full price for a pair Ambercrombie and Fitch jeans, but I snagged this pair for $3.00 at a garage sale. The Calvin Klein shirt was a steal at the same sale for just a dollar and my Rafaella corduroy jacket was purchased for just a dollar as well, on a hot summer garage sale run. Even though you can't see my Brown's Landing leather shoes, they were free. A co-worker let me rummage through some of her shoes before she donated them to a resale shop. I made my silver beaded earrings that happen to match the beads on the shirt ( I had the earrings first.)

Total Cost of Outfit = $5.00

If you count the fifteen dollars cash I found in the pocket of another pair of jeans that I bought along with the jeans and shirt above, I guess it would make that FREE!


  1. You found cash? How fun! I love your outfit. :)

  2. What a great outfit! You're smart to be always on the lookout for bargains!

  3. Looks like you got paid to buy that outfit. Great job! I just got my Frugal Fashionista link up today if you'd like to check it out...


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
