Last week, I shared about a great upscale consignment shop in my area called Clothes Mentor. Check out the post for the gagillion reasons why you'll fall in love with this shop. But the short of it?
Great brands and style, 70% off mall prices.
As I did with Artifact Boutique, I scouted out a few Fall Fashion pieces to update my wardrobe and kept it quite frugal. Clothes Mentor was stocked with so many great items, it was overwhelming where to start. Luckily, one of the display outfits caught my eye like WHOA:
|Hello, my new love.|
The edme & esyllte (a brand often found at Anthropologie) top has a slight peasant fit, with wraps that tie around the back. I love the blue and yellow colors; even though it's short sleeved, it is flowy and reminiscent of Autumn.
And with that yellow scarf?
You know how I feel about the color yellow.
So, after checking out the super duper happy price tag, I snagged both as well as a pair of Ann Taylor Loft Wide-Leg Jeans. I know skinny fit is soooo in right now. But these jeans were comfy and I'm going to rock them, just you watch. Here is how the outfit pieced together:
|Laaaawd. I am not a model. Tyra Banks would be all sorts of mad at me.|
So then as I was walking to the register, I found this little beauty: a blue-green shirt with polka dots.
POLKA DOTS, people.
I couldn't resist:
I'm not usually a belt kind of girl, but the way this Daniel Rainn shirt is cut (loose and long) it looked best tucked in. I can't wait to rock this same exact outfit but with brown boots.
So what was the price tag for this shopping trip?
2 shirts (that would have each easily sold regularly for $50+), a pair of name brand jeans and an infinity scarf:
That, friends, is what we call a win.
Are you stoked to go frugal on your fashion??
