You Don't Need Tons Of Money...

lace shirt: I made it skirt: Thrift belt:Zara (came with different pants) flats: ? very old

I was really happy with this outfit. Kinda proud, because the shirt and skirt were handmade and thrifted so the total cost of this outfit is around $12 (the price of the skirt, flats, and stockings) 
I was not happy that I only got to wear it for about 2 hours on Sunday while I did a little Christmas shopping. Then I went back home and changed. So that means I will be wearing it again. ; ) 

I got this skirt on my last thrift shopping trip, when I was looking for maroon pants. I didn't find the pants but I did come close with this skirt. I made the lace shirt with left over material from my sisters graduation dress. Don't worry she graduation a loongg time ago, she wasn't wearing it again It was a long lace dress with a shorter white dress under. So I cut the lace part off the bottom and make this shirt. Basically the same way I made this dress. Now I have a new shirt and dress! 


  1. Beautiful outfit! You look gorgeous! In fact my daughter and I often go to the Sunday market here in Rome, the famous Porta Portese. They have fabulous bargains. Last Sunday she bought a dress for 10 euros and a sweater for 8 euros. I buy most of my clothes there. Hello from Italy!

  2. You look great!! I love the lace shirt you made and the skirt is such a great colour. Awesome outfit! You SHOULD feel proud :)

  3. What a cute little shopping number. Def. looks comfortable with the flats! Love your belt - so cute!


  4. I am so jealous you can sew and I'm glad that you waited for your sister to get out of the dress before you cut it up;-)
    You look so dang cute and for only $12 I am amazed!
