It all started when I took a self portrait
and realized that I looked pretty cute but was wearing very thrifty/inexpensive things
[$3 Forever 21 sunglasses, $5 Sam Moon faux pearls, and $3 clearance JCPenney top]
And then I realized that most of the time I'm wearing thrifty/inexpensive things
[$3 Forever 21 sunglasses, $0.50 Claire's necklace (from way back when), $5 Ann Taylor Loft top via Goodwill]
And so, #cheapgirlfashion was born. You can follow me on Instagram (chelsealynae) for more fun and thrifty outfits!
[$5 clearance Charlotte Russe top, $2 mint sorbet nail polish]
This may be one of my favorite thrifty outfits to date!
[hand me down cardigan, $2 Old Navy dress via garage sale, $3 Forever 21 belt, and Blowfish Shoes won in a blog giveaway]
(sans pedicure. not cute.)
I'm loving Goodwill, blog giveaways, Forever 21 for accessories, clothes swaps and hand me downs! I'll take your old clothes. No shame here.
You see, consumerism invades so much of my perspective
but I want to live my life through God's perspective.
I want to be a good steward of the things God has given me.
So, in my life, that means not stressin over beautiful, expensive clothes
But rather investing my money and time into my students and my church
(and food also, apparently, because I eat a lot).
What's your favorite way to save money and stay fashionable?
