FRUGAL FASHION FRIDAY – Plaid Edition
I love plaid! I think it’s fun to dress up or keep casual. I wear it to the office, around the house and on nights out with some bling! I scored this amazing black and white plaid shirt dress for $5 at a thrift store and find it very versatile. I wear it with my leather leggings or jeans.
It’s still a winter wonderland here in Vancouver, which can mean a lot of layers. I love this plaid shirt because it’s long and keeps me warm.
FRUGAL FASHION FRIDAY – COST
Plaid Shirt: $5 (thrifted), Kenneth Cole Leather Jacket: $125 (consignment), Black Belt: $4 (Joe Fresh), Mavi Jeans: Free (still the same pair I worked a party for!), Strategia Boots: $70 (Winners), Vintage Holt Renfrew Purse: $5 (Salvation Army)
Ok let’s get serious! I know a $200 outfit might not seem frugal, but the leather jacket I have had for a year and is only one of four I own. The boots were a splurge as I didn’t have black boots and I found a similar pair online for $200! I think I got a deal.
I love finding deals and bargains, occasionally I invest in something like a leather jacket or boots. Four years ago I bought a pair of Joe’s Booties for $70 at Winners and thought that was insane. I walked miles in these boots and they are a year round staple in my wardrobe. This year the sole finally died, but the boot is still good, so it was a great investment. Sometimes we have to choose items to invest in that fill out our frugalista wardrobes! You’re worth it!
