Thrifty Fashionista

One of the blessings of weight loss is that it gives you an excuse to shop.  It is also a bittersweet moment, because you have to part ways with some of your most favorite pieces.   Considering that I haven’t met my goal weight yet, I am in the process of rebuilding my wardrobe and it will be done on a budget.  Remember my 28 cent dress from Old Navy I purchased a few months ago?  If not, here’s the dress and how I wore it! 
So, the other day I stopped in my favorite Old Navy store.  I wasn't looking for anything in particular, just browsing.  If you’re like me, I headed straight to the back towards the clearance section!  There I was…looking through tons of clothes, pushing hangers, holding clothes in front of me inspecting for spots and also quickly deciding if I’d purchase it once I saw the price tag.  In my search, I came across three cute dresses but there was a problem!  None of them had price tags and so I was a bit apprehensive.  (Usually when I see items without prices, I automatically assume the price will be higher because there weren't any other dresses like it on the rack).  Determined to find out the price, I asked the fitting room attendant for a price check.  To my surprise, all of the dresses were…get this…$4.97 each!!!!  To top it off, all of them fit perfectly!!  
Now, some of you are saying, “I would never!” and proceed to the regular priced merchandise and of course, that is your decision.  I’m just trying to bring awareness that you can still be fashion savvy and still keep some money in your pocket.  
Let me know what you think.  Are you a “Bargain Fashionista” like me or do you prefer to shop retail prices only?
