#ThriftyThursday: Preppy and proud
#ThriftyThursday: $250. My preppy ensemble would retail for nearly that surprising cost. Lucky for me – my window-shopping inspiration was satisfied with thrifty Goodwill finds.
This soft look is composed of:
a Gap dress
a New Look cardigan
a pair of Talbots sandals
a two-strand pink necklace
I struggle wearing any straight-cut dress, but when I found this Gap gem, I decided alterations were worth my time. After matching a soft pink chunky necklace, I tied a long-sleeved sweater to cinch my waist. However, I didn’t want to lose the personality of the dress; I made sure to make use of the hidden pockets! The Talbots sandals were a deal, having the price sticker still attached to the bottom.
I always love the color combinations and styles Banana Republic and Ann Taylor advertisements suggest. Because I would rather direct my dollars to a great cause, I took my to-do list to Goodwill, where I designed my own style and color scheme. Thank you, Campbell Lane (Bowling Green), Bardstown Road (Fern Creek), Crestwood, and Mapleleaf (Lexington) locations for embellishing my preppy side!
Less than $17. When I walk down the street, people better know I am preppy and #GoodwillProud.
