#ThriftyThursday: Have a fascinating Derby!
#ThriftyThursday: It’s Derby season, y’all! This means fast horses and fabulous clothing at the track. However, fascinators, hats, and other head pieces for events like the Oaks and Derby have a steep price tag. I have found Goodwill has fashionable, creative alternatives for this Derby season!
I purchased this purple feathered fascinator at the Northfield location (Louisville) for just $1.79. (I know, I couldn’t believe it either!) Its bold color is stunning, and I love its simplicity and elegance. I found one similar, without feathers, at a local craft store for $69!
My suggestion is: if you don’t find something already designed, look for individual pieces. I have found multiple colorful, wide-brimmed hats at Goodwill. By hot-gluing your favorite flower or feathers, you’ll be track and party ready!
For special events, I always look to purchase an affordable, stylish outfit. By taking my fashion needs to my favorite Goodwill stores, I avoid unreasonable price tags! I donate back items if I don’t plan to wear them again. It’s a win-win; I would bet on it!
