Last week I snagged some sweet new articles of clothing for super cheap and I wanted to share them with you! I put together a few different outfits with what I bought to show you how I would most likely wear them (style them?) I am no fashionista, so bear with me here.
First, a quick back story on my still slowly developing “fashion sense”…. Growing up I couldn’t be bothered with cool or stylish outfits. I was way too comfortable with a good pair of sweats and a zip up hoodie. I was extremely self conscious about my body and insisted on wearing baggy and unflattering clothing, often from the boy’s section at Walmart. Though I can’t say that I have completely grown in confidence, I can say that I care a bit more about my appearance(most days) and try to pick up a few cute things here and there.
My only requirement when it comes to shopping is that whatever clothing I buy is cheap as heck. I usually only by clothing out of season or ridiculously marked down. I still enjoy some things from Walmart on occasion, but I buy most of my clothing from Rue 21 anymore because their sales are AMAZING. The mall near our apartment just opened a Forever 21 Red as well, so I am definitely getting into that as well.
So here is my post to prove that you can be, as I mention in the title, fashionably CHEAP.
I really wanted something professional but not heeled (I suck at walking in heels) I found these adorable pointed flats for $5!
I thought the sides were really fun too. I don’t usually like pointed shoes but these look pretty great on me and the price was just too good to pass on.
I really liked the high waist and the pattern on this skirt. It was $2. Yeah, you read that correctly.
This probably isn’t attractive to a lot of you, but I have a weird thing for sort of ugly clothing. Especially sweaters! I always buy my winter clothes out of season because of the lovely prices. I believe this was also $2. I always wanted something mustard colored, for whatever reason!
This is just a nude undershirt, but I had to tell you about it because it was $1.80. Usually I can’t find them less than $5!
This is a really fun crop top. You can see in my 4th of July post. It doesn’t look that great by itself but I feel rather adorable when I’m wearing it. It was $3.50.
How I would wear them:
I wear a cami under this shirt otherwise I’d be showing some serious belly. I think it would look just as cute with shorts with a high waist, though. I don’t have any or I would try it out. I like to wear my blue necklace with this shirt to add a little something. I like this shirt a lot because it is comfortable and loose without making me seem completely shapeless. It might be my favorite item that I purchased.
You definitely have to tuck a shirt into this skirt in order for it to look right. I paired it with my new shoes and one of my hats because I thought it looked pretty cute. I am planning on wearing this exact outfit minus the hat for my job interview tomorrow.
Here it is without a hat as well.
Here is the ugly sweater! I love it, though I had trouble taking a flattering picture of myself in it. So I just goofed off instead. I think it might look cuter with a black undershirt or even just one of similar mustard-y color. I would either wear it with leggings or skinny jeans but definitely always with boots of some sort.
“Its not toooo ugly, right?”
So anyway, like I said, I am no fashionista by any means. I just like cute clothes and wanted to share my experience of finding them without going broke in the slightest. There is nothing wrong with brand names, but I really do prefer saving major money and doing it the cheap way! Have you ever snagged any sweet deals? Tell me about it!
