Steal vs. Real

Over the past year Susie and Michelle certainly have found some steals! Bargain finds…so we wanted to allow you a little sneak peak into our fashion finds over the past year that we also see in real life for much more expensive!

You can always find a similar look- allow us to show you. 

Michelle found these black garbage bag shorts at for $5. The same pair below are $39 at Nordstrom.

This Easter dress she wore that was peach and scalloped she found at a local boutique for $10 on sale of course. Shown below is an indentical dress for $35. is not always a good choice but for Michelle lately it has proven to be a great place to grab a few cute inexpensive things. She sound this ruffle long sleeve top there for $5. 

She found a similar one on line for $15. Not much savings you might think- but every little bit helps when you are thinking about changing your wardrobe often. 

Lastly Michelle found these black tuxedo pants with a white stripe in her local Cato for $4.99.

Not only did she find them online for much more- she found a very familiar face wearing them!

These are Willow St. boutique for $275. Not sure about you but why would I pay that much for something that I can get a very similar look for much less!


Susie found these awesome hot pink sling back pumps for $4.99 at Goodwill! They had hardly been worn! Even better was the fact that she adores pink!


She saw a very similar shoe by Loubatan for- well, let’s just say no where near $4.99! Even a pair by Nine West was definitely a larger investment than her buy!



Goodwill is not always the first place where many people look for a deal, but Susie has come to love the challenge of taking something that someone else might not want and turning it into a stylish combination for an #ootd! All of the following looks are built around Goodwill purchases!





The last look is a combination of a Goodwill jumpsuit and a Walmart hat that cost 4$ embellished with a vintage pin!

This next  look is made unique by a crafty hat that Susie saw online and decided to copy using a Dollar Tree hat. She just frayed the edges herself and gave it a high end look for almost no expense!  IMG_3402
