I’m the type of girl who hates spending more than like $15 on a shirt, more than $35 for jeans, and more than $50 for leather shoes! And normally, if I can find good deals, I always stay in that budget. I have sewn leather and made clothes, so I know exactly how much an item should be priced at!

This week I looked in my closet and realized I did not have enough clothes. A girl can never have enough, am I right? lol. In all honesty though, my closet is very small and I don’t have enough items to mix and match. So, what did I do? I went to Plato’s Closet, and exchanged some old for some “newer” clothes!

It’s weird because I always find great things there, but many of my friends say there and Goodwill, they rarely find something! I don’t think they are looking closely enough!

I think I found some knock out pieces! I got all of these items for around $160.00! That’s a steal! Especially for a majority of the items being designer brands! A couple of these items even were brand new, with the store tag still on them!

You can find really great steals at consignment stores. For instance, the Founder of Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso started out… shopping at consignment stores…read her book #GirlBoss!
