I found this outfit for twenty three dollars and some change. The blue silk shirt is from Banana Republic, the grey dress pants are Tracey Evans Limited, Shoes are Liz Claiborne, belt is real leather, the necklace is oblong beads and best of all the Kate Spade bag was only three dollars. It was all new to me and I didn't use a staple from my already large wardrobe.. It can be done. What were you able to find for $25...??

I want to see how creative and thrifty you all can be.
The goal here is to only spend twenty five dollars on a complete outfit.
Yes $25 and that is it..
Here are the rules
A complete outfit consists of:
Accessories (belt, necklace, handbag)
And if you are feeling super thrifty a jacket.
You may use one item from your already owned clothing to finish the look if you are having a hard time with finding all these items on the cheap..
Where can I get these things for that cheap??
Hit your thrift store,
Deseret Industries, Goodwill, Salvation Army to name a few
Scour the clearance racks at Macy's, Target, JCPenney etc.
Try Ross, TJ Maxx and others
Have a clothing swap with friends (get rid of stuff you and they don't want)
Look online Ebay has some great deals, as well as some of the places I blog about.
I want you to blog about it on your own blog and then tell us about it and send us a link to check it out!!
You may find how easy it is to have a new outfit, for not that much.
Think of how much Mother Earth will thank you for reusing items..
Think about how much your spouse will be shocked at how much money you DIDN'T spend.
Good Luck and Happy Hunting!
