Outfit Post: Head to Toe, Under $10

I have a confession to make about my shopping habits:  I'm one of the cheapest people you'll ever meet.  Blame it on thrifting or growing up shopping in the clearance section, but there are very few items in my closet that I paid over $20 for (save the occasional pair of boots or an amazing dress or two).

You might make the assumption that my closet is full of cheap, holey junk:  but you would be wrong.  It's taken years to perfect the art of sale and thrift and vintage shopping, but now, I see it as a sort of gift I possess.  Well, more of a skill, since it's been cultivated (and I believe it can be taught! I'll share a few tips as we go.)  Here's my first thrifty and fabulous outfit, which I wore out to a friend's music show and a little "surprise" birthday celebration put together by my amazing husband (I don't say that lightly; he's the best).

me and my Love

So the working total of this outfit?

Dress--Thrifted (Old Navy) $3  (they were having a 50% off sale at my Goodwill on Valentine's Day! Score!)
Belt--Vintage (FREE-- in the shop here)
Tights-- Target  $4.99
Peeptoe Platforms-- (FREE with a gift card: originally $200!!!)  Michael Kors via DSW
Studded Bracelets-- Birthday gift from Jayme
TOTAL:   $7.99

But doesn't this outfit look like a million bucks? I felt great in it.  The heels were incredibly comfortable despite how they might look. I love how everything together, including my birthday (the last one of my 20s! yikes!).

More outfit posts including the GORGEOUS Jayme coming soon!  Thanks for reading, loves.
