For most of my life I’ve known my mom to be a t-shirt and jeans kind of gal. It was one of the things my dad loved about her…her no-fuss, simple beauty. But as I look back at old photos, I realize that wasn’t always her. From one decade to the next, her wardrobe took drastic turns and the hairstyles…oh the hairstyles! I discovered where I get my impulse for a new do! =) I also got glimpses of who my mom has been at different points in her life…her tastes, her personality, her fashion.
Recently, I’ve started wondering what it will be like for my girls to one day look at old photos of me. Will they giggle at the numerous hairstyles? Will they say, “Oh, Mom, how could you!” Or will they, like me, find photos that capture their mother’s beauty in a way they had never seen? I hope it will be all three! And I hope looking at my past will bring them great joy and, of course, entertainment. So with the desire to supply my girls with little snapshots of me through the ages, I’m beginning Frugal Fashionista Friday.
I may have inherited an addiction to changing my hair, but I’ve also got my mom’s frugality written right into my genes. Beginning today, on the first Friday of each month, my plan is to share a fabulously fashionable, yet frugal find with my readers…and my daughters.
Let’s get to it, shall we? Drum roll, please…..
Our very first find for Frugal Fashionista Friday is???….
This super cute black and white polka-dot dress by She’s Cool! A flattering v-neck line and a hem just above the knee make this little number perfect for date night. Pair it with some flats and it’s comfy cotton feel make it a fabulous daytime dress as well. And coming in at just $6.99 at Ross, made it impossible for me to leave this cutie on the rack!
Well, ladies, I hope this has inspired you to keep an eye out for a look that won’t send you into cardiac arrest or in need of a second mortgage! Happy Shopping! But before you go, two things…First, leave a comment sharing where you find your best frugal fashions and second, I’m considering making next month’s Frugal Fashionista Friday a link up.
