Bargains Galore!

Thursday, November 05, 2015

Bargains all over the place....#1 I have a a deal on a local Curves, to get me to work out.  Free for 3 wqeeks, if I keep to 3 times a week, which will keep me motivated. Thge place is convenient, has lots of parking and the workout is good but not killing. Fine to start with.

#2 U have been shopping and have finished getting together the outfit for my niece's wedding way in advance of the July date.  First I found an Edwardian-type kacy hacjet ti wear iver a peach shift dress I had bought new at a thrift shop for $7.  The jacket is teh big ticket item, at $40, but it anchors the whole ensemble.  Then I already have ivory hsoes, another long time bargain, so I needed a dressy ivory bag.....which I FOUND yesterday at a thrift shop in Pasadena. 

It is an invory leather Giani Bernini bag, of ivory leather.  And I looked it up, because it is fun to do sod it would cost $50 to $60 new! But I got it for $7!!. All I halve to do is add a cord or chain so I can convert it to a shoulder bag, the way I prefer, on the loops already there. So, for under $70 I have an outfit that is alctually WORTH much more.  That tickles my fancy.  And I can wear the REAL pearls I found in a thrift shop in Michigan on a trip there, and earrings I aready have and it is DONE. VOILA!  I reallyl enjoy that procxess and I thought I would share it, as we all have occastions like weddings to dress up for, and who wants to break the bank to do it.  But as you see, it can be done the frugal way and you still look fabulous.....It's our secret.
