I love clothes. I unashamedly take up two thirds of our small walk in closet, plus a large dresser. I also have my workout clothes stashed in two drawers of dresser in our dinning (long story as to how my workout clothes ended up in the dinning room, perhaps I will share that another day).
I however, don’t like paying big money for those clothes. First, because our budget won’t allow it. Second, because I grow bored of my clothes quick. Although, the main reason I don’t like paying retail for clothes is the thrill of the hunt.
I love to seek out and devour a good bargain. For instance in this photo, I am wearing genuine leather boots found for $10 at a local thrift shop. The skirt, Ann Taylor Loft, bought for $4 in a neighboring town’s thrift shop.The kelly green sweater, was close to free, when I used a coupon at target. The shirt under the sweater, $3 on clearance at Meijer. (sorry for the poor photo my 9 year old was the only one around to take photo’s and she quickly grew bored)
My favorite piece of the whole outfit is the necklace made for me by a friend.
I love homemade items, especially those made for me by others. Nothing says I appreciate you like a gift that took thought and time to make.
How about you? Where do you hunt for deals?
