Queen of Frugality

As a fashion inclined student with cheap pockets, sales and clearance racks are my best friends. I love getting bargains and receiving the most out of my money spent. My friends always compliment me on my outfit & how I dress well, wanting to go shopping with me and how or where do I get my clothes from. I don't really think about a certain "store" when I shop, I just like to wear whatever looks appealing. Whether it be thrift, department or Target. Even when I'm monetarily established, I'll still be a frugal shopper!

I went shopping with my mother a couple of days ago and I'm so happy about my purchases! We visited the local Dillard's, because this particular location is a clearance center so they always have deals and sales. I ended up getting a blouse, two shorts and a pair of heels all for $40!! Yes, 40 dollars, while the retail value of the overall purchase retails nearly $230. I was AMAZED!

The item that I'm really happy about are these Dolce Vita DV Demi High Heels. These retail for $99 but I snagged these babies up for $17! Is that a deal or what?! I never owned any red heels, and I've been wanting some for a long time; this was Godsend, lol.

I picked up this blouse for $12 (orig. $59), and each sequined shorts for $5 (orig. $29). I might do a lookbook featuring these items.

Speaking of being frugal, I also love getting samples. Whether it's at department stores, grocery stores or online, I don't have a problem on stocking up on samples. Plus it'll give me a chance to try something I probably would have not tried before.

I'm really big on hair samples now, because I want to take better care of my hair. I'm trying to wean myself off relaxers so I want to know what product works best for my coarse hair. I've also received fragrance samples, a stylus for my iPhone, anti-wrinkle serum system (don't ask, lol), toiletries and even magazines! (Bazaar, Ebony, Fitness, etc).

I'm so happy I got my phone case in! It's such a beaut!

This past weekend I went to Atlanta with my besfriend and had the time of my life! I'll make another post about that, with pictures, but honestly, I truly enjoyed myself. My blog's 1 year anniversary was this past weekend, JUNE 15TH, awww yay! I'm really getting the hang of blogging, so hopefully I can keep up the pattern.
