{Thrift Haul} Goodwill vs. Retail

I'm really excited about this this thrift haul! It includes some of my favorite brands plus some new discoveries. The retail value is over $900. My price at Goodwill? Only $50.

I am not a label whore. I look at quality first. I judge by how the fabric feels in my hands or on my body then move on to fit and brand. I was really shocked by the retail prices of some of these pieces.

Sequins Remixed

Imagine my joy discovering this sequin top can be worn backwards! Add that to the list of ways to remix your closet. I snagged this lovely at an estate sale. At the time, I wasn't to enamored of the color combination and the 80s batwings. It looks so much better on the body though.

Another surprise to this tunic length top is that it can be tucked. I thought it would be lumpy and bumpy with all the sequins but since the skirt is full the bulk is hidden.

{Thrifty Mom's Guide} Frugal & Fabulous Holiday Style

Thanks to Dryel for choosing me as an official brand ambassador and sponsoring this frugally fabulous discussion. The holidays are in full swing and there are lots of parties and opportunities in general to make merry.

Of course you can't wear the same dress to every event. Or can you? If you're thrifty like me, you don't want to spend all the cash on fab frocks that will be worn once then sit in the closet to never see the light of day again.
