$pending The Time:

     When it comes to fashion, it usually pays to hunt for the best deal. After reading thru piles of chic blogs and seeing even more stylish advertisements in grocery store magazines I can't help but want to shop, who wouldn't feel that way? However, saving a few dollars and really searching out the best prices on long lasting quality items can sometimes be the way to go when it comes to retail therapy. I am a huge supporter of lurking the sales racks in every boutique and finding those hidden treasures in a local charity shop. I have also recently discovered my town's Antique Fair which is held once a month and has recently gifted me with some very  inexpensive coach bags (like the Wallis bag featured in this post). Crossroads Trading Co has quickly become one of my all time favorite spots over the years because I love the idea of recycled fashion, you bring in your old clothes and go home with new (to you) garments! So even though I am continually barricaded with advertisements and the like, I know I can get my shopping fix by purchasing quality items that will last and last without going home with a severely sad wallet!

Prada leather sandals purchased at a ridiculously
low price at Crossroads Trading Co.

Sunglasses- Vintage Gucci (via Twist!),
 Leather Duffle Bag- Coach

I spotted this dress at the Michael Kors store several seasons ago, but after seeing the $150 price tag I only admired from a far. Recently, I plucked the same dress off of a Marshall's sale rack for $10!

     I hope that the next time you find yourself needing a new item for your wardrobe that you will be inspired to hunt down the perfect quality item at the perfect price for your budget! We all deserve to look amazing while tucking away a few extra dollars! Try your local charity shops (like Goodwill and Salvation Army), Crossroads, or even a local antique fair or flea market!
