|I receive a lot of compliments when I wear this purse - and it's at least 65 years old.|
I go to local thrift stores (primarily non-profit) and usually bring home a large quantity of department store and designer clothing and shoes by spending only $30-$45 and a few hours looking for fashion items to be worn with my existing wardrobe.
The goal is to is to inform women of the fashion affordability of shopping at thrift stores, the benefit of donating, and how these organizations help disadvantaged, recovering and abused men, women and children.

Once I saw them, I immediately tore them out of the book then located a couple other YP books and took them too. They don't expire for a year - so I have a year's worth of thrift store coupons for Mission Possible.

|I wore this outfit to work last week and received many compliments!|
I ran across these boots that called my name and they were on sale. The were by Project Runway Season One winner Christian Siriano and had a "funky" look - just like I like them! They were regularly $59.99 but on sale for $34.99.
Then I looked at the hosiery and found this burn-out style pair of tights that were just as "funky" as the boots...SOLD!
It was great that both items were at the same store - unfortunately they were at only one Payless Shoes location in the metro area (I know of atleast 8 stores around town) - of course - I made the Sunday afternoon trip to the store and bought them both.
So the boots at $34.99 + the tights at $9.99 - (minus) the 15% coupon AND an additional 10% with my AAA membership card (AAA membership provides lots of retail discounts) totaled $38.43 It was like I got the tights for free - Great deal!
When I arrived, there was a table of designer shoes at the entrance and behold were a pair of COOGI boots that were worn probably once - so I grabbed those quickly and went to accessories and found a stretch belt, There were two cardigans one red and the other black and white (which I forgot to include in the picture) and hoo-ray! - that illusive red skirt.
While I was at the checkout there was this brown and green choker (I love wearing chokers) in the jewelry case, so I picked that up too, and in total spent under $35.
I found all of this in under an hour - what a quick shopping spree!
|COOGI Boots $9.99, Red Skirt $4.99, Choker $$.99, Stretch Belt $.079, Red and Black & White Cardigans (not pictured) $4.99 each.|
