while reading a favorite blog of mine, vintage vixen, one of vix's readers challenged her to post an entire outfit for under 5 pounds and she did so w/o hesitation. you can see vix's outfit HERE. there is so much to love about vix. besides being a vegetarian, her inspiring personal style and committment to it is a joy to read about. she lives a very frugal but very full and fun life in jolly old england. i am so jealous of her seamstress skills because she can whip up an outfit out of an old curtain panel in a couple of hours. you must go visit her and say hello. it will make your day - i promise.
so on to my challenge. i decided to see if i could put an outfit together for under $10 and i was quite surprised that i had quite a few options. so for the next few days that's what i'll be doing, posting my cheapest of cheapest outfits! aren't you excited?
up first is an outfit that proves that you can find really great classic clothing at yardsales and thriftshops.
