Mix and Match

Blouse: $4.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Blue Ruby
The daisy pattern of this black and turquoise blouse was what initially drew me to this top. I love colours that POP! I also like the uniqueness of the collar, which I identify with as a mini tie.

Beret: $9.99  Purchased from Sears
Label: Jessica
I originally bought this hat for my boyfriends mom, but decided to "borrow" it after the cold weather set in. I don't typically wear a lot of animal print clothing (despite my 'Cougar Town' blog), but I really like the understated leopard design of this beret. It also keeps my head nice and cozy in this below O degree weather.

Skirt: $6.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Braemar Petites
This is another one of those skirts that I hemmed in order to make it more...modern, shall we say. I like the intricate folds of material on the waistband, and the gold buttons give this otherwise plain skirt some much needed pizazz!

Bracelet:$0.99  Purchased from Value Village
This charm bracelet is adorable. It has a little charm that says "Quesnel, BC" on it, so I am guessing that the original owner resided in Quesnel. It also has little charms of a mailbox, cowboy, and horse. Yee-Haw!

Bag: $9.99  Purchased from Value Village
Again, I adore this bag for the reasons being: it is black and gold, it has chain straps, and it is quilted. Definitely easy to mix and match with any outfit!

Stockings: $2.00  Purchased from Yoko Ya Ya
Sister company of Daiso, Yoko Ya Ya sells a variety of items in their store...including stockings! And with nothing in the store over $3.00, I think this purchase is a good deal! It is ESPECIALLY worthwhile for dog owners like me, considering the fact that my dogs love to scratch at my legs whenever they see me, resulting in many runs in my stockings...

Shoes: $7.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Enzo Angiolini

Frugal Finds Total: $42.94

Autumn Leaves, Cardigans Arrive

Cardigan: $5.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Cleo
This grandpa-esque sweater was quite a bit larger in size when I first purchased it. But after several washes and tumbles in the clothes dryer, it now fits perfectly. I like it fitted, but also a little bit baggy and long enough to hide my behind. The pearl buttons with gold edging are super cute, and add a nice touch to an otherwise, simple sweater.

Purse: $4.99  Purchased from Value Village
This patent-black, quilted purse is one of my favorite finds from the thrift store. I love the black and gold chain strap, as well as the decorative tassel hanging off the zipper.

Tank Top: $22  Purchased from Aritzia
Label: TNA

Necklace: $19.99  Purchased from Ardene Accessories
I am currently obsessed with all Cameo jewelry. I have been searching for a nice vintage cameo ring for awhile now, but have yet to find anything I've really liked. Not to fret though, Cameo has been making a recent fashion comeback, considering the fact that Ardene even sells it now! The pendant was originally attached to an excessively over-accessorized necklace consisting of pearls, and other "cutesy" decor, so I just took off this cameo locket-pendant and attached it onto my own chain. Now if I can only find some pictures small enough to fit in there...

Shoes: $39.99  Purchased from Banana Republic
These adorable shoes were on sale, and given to me, courtesy of my boyfriend's sister. Thanks Vi!

Tights: $9.50  Purchased from Gap
