'A Lean and Hungry Look'


This is me spotting something fabulous across the street in a store window.  But I must be all frugality in the next couple of months (I want a new camera, want to save more and want to pay off some bills). So to combat my withdrawel symptoms, I've come up with a couple of ways to get my shopping fix:

Tag along with anyone who is prone to swipe a credit card.  Just the sight alone of the cashier folding the clothes, swathing it in tissue paper and placing it in the new crisp bag will/should/has to be enough,
Go thrifting more,
Utilize Forever 21 more,
Shop Etsy vintage shops, and
eBay it up!







What I'm Wearing:
Crochet Skirt:   Nordstrom (had it for over 10 years)
Sweater:           Merino Wool Boyfriend Sweater - JCrew
                         Orig. Price:  $88.00
                         Paid:   $49.00
Rabbit Collar Leather Jacket - Arden B
Boots:           Seychelles Biography - Zappos
Tights:          Milly for Hue - Bloomingdale's
Suede Bag:     Bought in Florence, Italy, DIY studded
Rings:  YSL, A Peace Treaty Amulete ring
Sunspecs:   Vintage YSLPin It

  1. Great poses! Maybe you could sell some stuff on Ebay during your shopping hiatus? I try to sell something if I buy something, just a thought!

  2. Love the collar on your coat! Ebay'ing it up is a great way to get your shopping fix. I also find looking online at all the shops is a good fix too!

  13. I LOVE your boots- they are so "in" right now, and you look great in how you chose to wear them. I love your thrifty comforts- this way you can still enjoy some retail therapy while saving at the same time! :D
