Chic looks for cheap

Hey all my fellow Fashionista’s!

Recently a friend asked if I could write an article for all the Divas out there who want that chic celebrity look, but don’t have a celebrities budget to pull it off. A fab look for a “Discount Diva” or a “Babe on a Budget” OR (my fav) “Chic for Cheap”. 😀

And, let’s face it ladies; times are tight these days, BUT we shouldn’t let our sense of fashion suffer because of it.

So, as I was on my way out to lunch for a quick bite, I pit stopped at the Goodwill store to see what hidden treasures I could find. YES, the Goodwill! I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It’s the place where you can find designer garments without the designer prices.

You will NEVER guess what I found.

A pair of 70’s retro shades that are similar to these Miu Miu beauties that Jessica Alba has been spotted wearing.

Now, you may want to be sitting down and/or within fainting distance of something soft when I tell you how much I paid for these bad boys. Take a wild guess… Give up?

Total price = $1.81

Don’t worry…I’ll wait a moment while the EMT’s administer CPR. 😀


In case you don’t know about these super HOT accessories, Miu Miu shades easily go for $150.00 or more at any high fashion store.

Hmmm….Looks like I’ll be paying the thrift stores another visit in the near future. 😀

So, while you’re out and about looking for the perfect piece to finish your fab look, AND, your credit card is screaming “No Mas!”, you should have a little mercy on it by dropping into your local thrift shop for a spell. You never know what hidden gems you’ll find there.
