Frugal Fashion Fridays: .25 Cent Top

It's Friday, and you know what that means....time for Frugal Fashion Fridays! Due to some stuff going on here, I didn't have a chance to take a decent photo, so I'm using one a friend took of me.

For today's FFF, I wanted to talk about thrifting. I know, there are a lot of bad things said about thrift stores, but there are some AWESOME things as well. Scouring the racks for that one amazing tee or dress or pair of shoes is one of the best 'hunts' I go on. It's more fulfilling than shopping at a boutique for me, and is more like a treasure hunt.

After looking through every rack at the Goodwill, I found this great flowy top, with a half off tag, stuffed in a horribly ugly boot I was trying on ( for the sake of trying to win White Trash Bash that year). Because as an experienced thrifter, I know the good stuff gets hidden most times, by people who have come early and want to come back later, and sometimes those hiding places take you completely off guard!

This top only cost me a quarter after all was said and done, and after checking out the tags, I realized this shirt was from Wet Seal, and probably cost $25 or more originally. $25 to .25...I would call that one amazing Frugal Find!
