My least favorite item to shop for is a bra. I will put off buying a new one until I have literally worn the life out of mine, with the straps stretched out, offering no support, and certainly not looking as nice as what I’m wearing on the outside. Several years ago I decided to […]
My girlfriend is pregnant with her first child and much to her dismay, discovered how expensive maternity clothes are. And it’s not like you can just do without them! Now prior to her pregnancy, she was one of my friends who thought thrift store shopping was kind of “icky”….now, she’s wanting to go shopping at Goodwill or arc every week because she has found some fabulous maternity clothes there and discovered, no, they are not “icky” and they are CHEAP (without looking cheap).
It’s long been a tradition to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, protecting you from a “pinch.” By buying thrift/consignment items, you can not only wear green, but “be green”… looking stylish, recycling and saving money in the process. I visited two of my favorite local stores (Discover Goodwill and Ashley’s Attic,) to find some […]
T-Shirts can be comfortable, inexpensive, and very versatile. They come in long or short-sleeve styles, with different necklines, and lots of color or pattern options. And you can find them anywhere and everywhere, with some really great deals at stores like Walmart, Target or Kmart. I always look for tees when shopping at Goodwill or […]
If you put off getting a new winter coat or jacket this year because of budget constraints, now is a great time to consider purchasing one since there are so many great sales. Even though it may still be cold outside and winter doesn’t officially end till March 20th, stores are deeply discounting their winter […]
Very seldom do I pay full price for clothing or anything related to fashion because quite frankly, I really don’t need anything. Even when I buy new, it usually is on sale or on clearance. My birthday falls during the first week of January and I’ve never minded that it comes so soon after Christmas because […]
Charlotte is a very stylish woman with rather… um… expensive tastes, shall we say? This is a huge challenge: can we still find awesome clothes for her at Goodwill?
A “true” little black dress is one that is as simple in its design as possible so that id doesn’t become “dated”. The beauty of the LBD is in its complete fashion versatility as an article of clothing.
I was at an estate sale the other day and they had their check-out area in the garage. While standing in line, I saw a shelf of cleaning products, glues, and miscellaneous spray cans of stuff. I went over for a closer look and spied a can of Static Guard and was THRILLED…especially because it was almost full and only 50 cents. I have seriously needed a can of Static Guard for FIVE years but always forget to buy it at the store. Seriously.
Well another summer has come to an end and soon we’ll be enjoying the crisp, cooler weather. I know a lot of women who begin the seasonal transition with their wardrobe, packing away the shorts and tanks, while pulling out the sweaters and boots, right about now. But before you stow away your summer whites, […]
A lift without surgery? No lotions or potions, straps or hooks? This As Seen On TV product promises to instantly lift sagging breasts in a second.
It’s Labor Day and a lot of women will be packing away their summer clothes and pulling out their fall/winter clothes…and some will even include (in packing away) anything white… But wait, you CAN still wear white!
I’m at home during the day and usually have the TV on for background noise while I write and research articles. The other day I heard a talk show host talking about a list of fashion “noes” for women of various ages. I was so surprised at some of them I actually got up and […]
On today’s video Ashley and I discuss summer clearance sales. There are tons of great summer clearance sales going on right now, especially on summer apparel, which you can actually wear into the cooler months of fall and even winter. HOW TO WEAR YOUR SUMMER CLOTHES INTO FALL/WINTER – Summery dresses are my favorite items to […]
Joining me today for a discussion of how to wear animal print is my good friend Ashley, who gives some excellent tips on basic do’s and don’ts. We began the discussion before filming when I had told her about a woman I had seen at the grocery store who had on some really cute pieces […]
As you probably know, I was on KKTV’s Moms Everyday on Friday, the 24th (how could you not–we plastered it everywhere!) and I took the host, Jen Lennon a hostess basket with goodies I made and found at Goodwill and the Dollar Tree…here’s the recipes I used and the items I bought that you could find at a local thrift store/dollar store….all for under $9.00….which would be the amount you’d spend on a bottle of wine (or more) or a bouquet of flowers.
Baby and toddler clothes are so adorable…and so expensive. I was at a store the other day shopping for a baby shower and saw bibs priced at $6.99 and little gowns (that had less material than a wash cloth) starting at $9.99!! I thought, “who can afford to dress their baby with these prices??” If you’re fortunate enough […]
You will not believe the great deals we found! Designer labels in great shape for pennies on the dollar in some cases!
Ashley’s our latest thrift store model…She has been a life-long thrift store shopper and knows how to mix and match items to make them look current and stylish. She has a great eye for quality pieces and I think that each of these outfits she’s modeling looks like they could be any outfit you’d seen in any of the latest fashion magazines.
I have a lot of clothes as I’ve mentioned before but the majority of them come from thrift/consignment stores so I don’t spend a lot of money on them. In fact, if I broke down where I purchase my clothes I’d say it would look something like this… 50% comes from Goodwill 20% comes from Ashley’s […]
