"Spring Thrift on a Budget!"

Spring is here and it’s time to adjust the fashion! But wait…This weather is still a bit funny. One day it’s cold and the next day it’s hot. So what to do? Let me suggest light layers. Thrifted layers to be exact. Now let’s get to the look. My sweater, with its awesome gold buttons is thrifted from Restore Thrift Store in Huntsville, AL for a dollar! I altered the sweater myself so it could fit just right. My blouse is thrifted from Thrift Mart and my gold chain is thrifted from the Neighborhood Store in Huntsville, AL. The belt is thrifted from Downtown Rescue Mission Thrift Store in Huntsville, AL. My pants were $7.00 on clearance from a store in Tennessee and my shoes are Steve Madden (also purchased on clearance). I made my bow from a scarf purchased from Target and I made my earrings as well.

My advice during changes in the season is if the weather is cool in the morning, wear layers that you can remove as the day warms up. Our bodies are temples so we have to protect them and keep ourselves covered to avoid illness during changes in the season. It’s ok to be crafty and to think outside the box with your looks. If you buy pieces that don’t fit from the thrift store take them in (if you can sew) yourselves to save money instead of paying to have them altered. Go to a fabric store (buttons make awesome earrings) and create your own jewelry. As the weather warms up, remember to remain modest in your attire 1 Timothy 2: 8-10, and since you may have the puppies (toes) out give yourself a pedicure to save money going to the salon.
