The look for less

Wearing a Pencil Skirt 3 Ways
unnamed 2
I follow a few fashion blogs and Putting Me Together (www.puttingmetogether.com) is one of my favorites.  Most of her outfit combos are outfits I could see myself wearing and most are from affordable stores.  When Audrey posted this posting,  www.puttingmetogether.com/2014/08/style-tips-3-ways-to-wear-polka-dot.html, I knew I had most of the pieces already in my wardrobe and all of them were THRIFTED!!!  So for a fraction of what she spent on her outfits, I was able to recreate them!!  I’ve also added a few other options of ways that I like to wear my pencil skirt!!
I have started pinning pictures onto Pinterest My Style Board from some of the blogs I follow and will be trying to recreate them with items I have found at Salvation Army Family Thrift.  If you have outfits you have pinned or found at a retail store, post them on the Salvation Army Thrift Facebook page or copy and paste the link to your comment at the end of this entry.  Then I will do my best to see how to I can recreate it with thrifted items.
My base piece is this pencil skirt.

Some of these options were a little outside the box for me, but I had so much fun putting them together and showing you how inexpensively it can be done with items from your local Salvation Army Family Thrift Store.
Be Thrifty!!

ME
About Me: I’m Nikki!!  I’ve been married to Tommy for 16 years.  I’m a stay-at-home-mom of four, who loves a good bargain.  I love thrifting for ANYTHING!  From an early age, thrifting was a way of life for me.  My family is fashionably clothed and my home comfortably furnished, with second hand finds.  I am alway scouting out Craigslist, thrift stores, garage sales, and dumpsters for goodies!!  I find more joy out of finding an awesome used item, than when I find a retail sale.  I’m not afraid to revamp an outdated outfit, think outside the box, or tackle a renovation project with my treasures.
