The lovely, vivacious Pippa of Shop With Pippa asked if we could do a thrifting challenge together. We decided on “Can you thrift a great look for under $20 total?” The talented blogger said she could do it in her sleep (well, she said she could do it, no problem, and she is a master thrifter).
Here is Pippa’s stylish, incredibly affordable look (see more pictures at her site, plus all the shopping details). Browse through her blog, too – it’s full of wonderful tips on how to shop for less.
|Love this skirt. Get all the details here.|
Because she never rests, here are Pippa’s two beautiful models, also thrifted out and looking incredible:
|Leather boots for $2? Well done!|
I was able to pull it together, too, at just the $20 mark. Here’s my office look, all thrifted save for the yellow bangle from Target ( remove it with your eyes):
|A nice mix of brights and neutrals, perfect for work, and all for a $20 bill!|
|The scarf totally busts the budget; it was $18 at a consignment shop.|
And here’s the breakdown:
BCBGeneration bronze boots, $9
Banana Republic pencil skirt, $3
Lime green Talbots under-sweater, $2
Emerald green Target cardigan, $4
GAP leather belt, $2
So I just made it! I don’t count my watch and wedding rings, because I wear them every day; they are part of me ☺
