Fall Frugal Finds

Hey fly fashion dolls! After one LONG summer, your girl finally handed in her "dissertation" (as the British call it..or masters thesis, as Americans say). Yes, I'm offically DONE with my masters in psychology! I was back in Cali for the summer, writing away, so had very little time to spend with my family and friends :(

But, fortunately, I did get to attend two weddings, witnessesing some dear friends tie the knot; fellowship with my family; and catch up a little with good friends. One highlight of my visit to Cali was meeting up with my dear friend, Seyi and catching up with this DC chic chick! We did a mini-shoot together and you'll definitely want to add her blog, In Fashion I Trust, to your list of faves!

Right before I headed to Cali, I had to do a little shopping in Londontown (yes, had to..teheh). A friend of mine invited me to a sample sale at New Look corporate office, and I picked up some amazingly frugal finds for one pound. Yes. One pound, y'all. *Note: In this post, I'm wearing only one of the items I purchased. The rest of the outfit was collected from different stores :)

DIY Denim Cut-offs: Thrifted 
When searching for the best pair of high waisted denims from your local thriftstore, here's a tip that might be helpful: search in the men's (or boys) section. The cut of the jeans often offer a better fit (especially if they are old school Levi or Gap denim).
Tan vest: River Island, 10 pounds
Gabor Oxford Shoes, Thrifted, 12 pounds
Men's Blazer, New Look, 1 pound

  1. I love this look, so cute girl chic. The blazer adds so much to the look making it chic. Your shoes also are amazing. Great look.

    Hugs & Love
