Cheap Chic

Apr 16, 2009

It's about time you  added us on on BlogLovin'!

While the garage sale was ongoing, my friends decided to put on a little fashion show.
Using the clothes that were on sale of course!

Here, Dani gives the pantsuit a try with my navy blazer. While Anjie goes all nautical with a sailor's top, her own black skirt and my fedora turned bowler hat! 

This eventually evolved into picking an outfit from a magazine then recreating it! 
It was our own version of their way, our way. 
There's nothing like a bunch of bored 21 year olds, racks and racks of clothes and a whole lot of creativity!

Hahaha! You all look great! I wish I had seen that vest. I would've snapped it up right away.

You've inspired me and my friends to pool our resources together and have a little garage sale of our own.
