Frugal Fashionista Finds: Cute Dress & Designer Bag
If I told you that you could get a $70 dress for under $3 and a $300 designer bag for under $100 would you believe a belle? Well, y’all better pay attention because I will tell you how to rack up without breaking the bank. I guess you know by now that the sis and I love fashion in various price ranges.
The thing about us is that we don’t really care about the price of an item–what matters is the quality and how it looks on us. We save money to have more money to shop. Tamika doesn’t care whether something is on sale or not, but on sale is always better in my book. You didn’t expect anything different did you? Check out how I rocked this outfit!
This dress was $2.97 at Penney’s (JCPenney dahling)…I scored it while shopping the clearance racks. You just saw the sale price, but on top of that I also got 15% off. This simple but adorable dress was purchased a while back (when they still accepted coupons) and the slim brown belt came with it.
Aren’t these colorful heels lovely? I already had these heels sitting in my closet, so, when I purchased the dress I knew they would look good together! Before I forget, these cute shoes came from Rainbow and were only $27. Cute, huh? They’re pretty high stilettos but let’s just say they’re super comfy and make my gams look good.
Tamika loves the designer bags and I’ve jumped on board in the last few years. This Brahmin bag retails for $295 but I scooped this cute little baby up for $99 during Belk’s Charity Sale (we tweeted it out). Talk about a deal…sweet! I was even able to get a little discount with my charity sale ticket.
You should have seen the look on ladies faces when I got this purse. It was under a rack that said $99, but I was the only belle smart enough to get an associate to double-check. They lost out because they thought it was in the wrong place. I thought the same thing, but ya gotta always have the gumption to CHECK THE PRICE.
Now that’s what you call killer shopping. There’s no use in spending tons of money to look great. You can still find quality clothing (and purses) if you know where to look. Time and patience are key my friends. Now, don’t I look glam?
