Fashion on a Dime

Here is my latest Fashion on a Dime. I hate spending ridiculous amounts of money on clothes, which is why I buy most of my clothes and my families clothes at garage sales and second hand stores! I will be breaking down each piece of my outfit to let you know what I paid and where I bought it!

Financial stats for this outfit are:
White t-shirt- $2.50 at Savers
Teal and knit vest- .50 at a garage sale!
True Religion capris- $7 dollars at a garage sale!!! (When I bought these the zipper was broken on them so I took them into my alterations lady who fixed them for $15) The total amount I spent on my True Religion jean capris was $22.
White and brown flats- $4 dollars at Deseret Industries (just like a Good Will)
Brown leather bracelet- .50 cents at a garage sale
Pearl bracelet- $5.00 off Ebay

My total outfit cost is $34.50! My DPWF (Dress Per Wear Factor) is $3.50!

Buying clothes for your family doesn't have to break the bank! I hope I can inspire you to get out there and start thrifting and garage saleing to see what you can find!

  11. Hi! What an awesome deal on the True Religions! I just found your blog and am lovin' it. I was just wondering -- do you try on clothes at garage sales, or just hope for the best?? And what about places like Savers or Goodwill? I always feel a little weird about that and end up passing things up... Any advice? I'm your newest follower. :)
