thrifty threads

I've started documenting my thrifty threads this week... let's just say I'm still working out the kinks. The only time I can snap some pics are in the morning, and the light is pretty crappy in our house + I air dry my naturally curly hair, so it's always wet in the am.

The main purpose of me sharing my outfits now and then is to show you that you can dress nicely for SUPER cheap (I'm going to try and do subtotals of each outfit - if I can remember how much everything cost!) So.... here you go!

February 4, 2009
hair tie: oops left it on in the pic.
top: vintage ~$10
jeans: Heavenly Couture ~$15
shoes: Target ~$20
Total: $45 for the entire outfit!

February 5, 2009
tank: F21 ~ $9
belt: thrifted ~$5
jeans: Sakes Outlet (Joe's Jeans) ~$50
Sweater: thrifted ~$5
Shoes: (Charles David) ~$20
Total: $89 for the entire outfit!

I'm still experimenting with when to take the pictures, lighting, when my hair will actually be dry ;) I'll be totally honest - I HATE my picture being taken, but I really love seeing daily wear pics on my favorite blogs, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon.
