Looking so Good for Much Less $

I was flipping channels on tv one day last week, and what caught my eye?  An absolutely chic young woman on the Nate Berkus show.  I heard the word thrift.  Found out that this young stylish lady specializes in buying lovely clothes at very cheap prices.  She shops the thrift stores, and the price of the tan, flounced designer-look dress she was wearing on the show was about $7.00.    Whoa!

Her name is Patrice J. Williams.  Patrice has a blog called Looking Fly on a Dime (  Looking Fly on a Dime is also on Facebook.  I'm going to like her page today.

I learned from Patrice that there are online thrift stores!  I never cease to be surprised about what's on the internet.  I shop at thrift stores now and then and found some new clothing as well as good quality gently used clothes.  I'm glad I found I can shop thrift from the comfort of my home now.  So today I searched for online thrift stores, and look what gorgeous items are for sale from between $6.99 and $13.99!

Dress for $12.19,

Sequined jacket for $13.99,

Sandals by Mossimo, $6.99,

Spring Forcast: Print Pants with Wider Silhouettes

I'm so happy about the pant designs that are in for this spring and summer season.  Many fashion designers are including print pants in wider cuts in their collections.  It's refreshing to see a garment that's been styled in the same way for a few seasons get an absolute overhaul (or in terms we understand today, "facelift").  This makes spring and summer fashion more enticing.  I'm hoping to see many girls, teens and women wearing the wide legged, harem and even straight legged pants, in prints.  I might post your picture in my blog.
