Do it Yourself

Emerald Green and Polka Dots

Today I’m dispelling the myth that you can’t look great on a budget. In fact there are so many resources available that you never have to pay full price for clothes or accessories.

My primary resource for inexpensive fashion is second hand finds. Whether gifted items or items purchase at a second hand store, there are many great pieces to be acquired if you are looking.

I recently asked for advice on this emerald green and polka dot outfit. I wanted to know which accessories I should wear with them.

I asked my A Proverbs Wife facebook friends should I wear the white or the gold accessories and it sparked many inquiries about the skirt and where I’d gotten it.

This skirt was a second hand finds. It was gifted to me so I paid $0!

The top is by Metaphor from Sears and is on sale for $9.

While I liked the gold accessories best many of you voted for the white.

 I ended up wearing the gold because it felt right for how I was feeling that day. Either would work just fine.

I wore these cute Bongo Junior’s Hoop Earrings – Hexagon earrings and Bongo Hexagon/Honeycomb Pieces Bundle chain with a chunky gold bracelet from Sears.

I finished off the look with a small Coach wristlet I bought on sale that’s just large enough to hold my iPhone, lip gloss, debit card and chewing gum.
