What I Wore Wednesday

Welcome to another week of What I Wore Wednesday-Garage sale edition. Where I link up my "cheaper than a cup of coffee" outfits with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy and Morgan at Meet Virginia.
Do I look like Robin Hood in this outfit? Cuz I'm not going to lie, I sort of felt like I was going to go out stealing from the rich and giving to the poor when I wore it. I'm not totally sold on the whole skinny jean thing yet, in fact I returned this pair yesterday (they had a hole that I didn't put there in them).
Green sweater-$1
White layering shirt-Aeropostale: $1
Jeans-Nordstrom Rack: returned
Boots-Target: $24

I thought I would give the jeans another try the next day and paired them with a tank and a sweater. (sorry for the dark shot, it's getting dreary here)

Tank-Banana Republic: $1

Sweater-Hollister: $1

Jeans and boats: see above

On Monday I threw on this Star Wars shirt (I totally tried to take a close up of the shirt, but it really just looked like a boob shot, so it didn't make the cut) and some jeans.
Star Wars shirt-Junk Food: $1
black layering shirt: 25cents
Jeans-Vigoss: $1
Total: $2.25

On Tuesday I wore:
Grey layering shirt-Abercrombie and Fitch: $1
Sweater: $1
Jeans-Vigoss: $1
Total $3


And today:
Jacket-Self Esteem: $1
Tank-Banana Republic: $1
Jeans-Joes: $10
Total: $12


If you notice, I did buy some "trendier" fall pieces for my wardrobe. I failed at finding skinny jeans this summer at garage sales and I wanted some brown boots I could pair with leggings and jeans. So while most of the items in my wardrobe come from garage sales, there are some pieces that when I can't find them during the summer, I will go out and buy them.

You are amazing! I love reading your posts, and sincerely envy you. I can't ever find anything cute. I'm a clearance rack queen, but I've never found much at yard sales. Thank you for being such an inspiration!

I really wish I could get out and find those kind of bargans at garage sales maybe when it gets cooler in Texas I will have better luck.

You can return jeans to Nordstrom Rack even when you take the tags off!? I had no idea! I bought a pair and turned out I didn't like them...btw, I love your frugal finds!
