The Fifth Outfit



Top:  a.n.a., thrifted
Belt: Target
Pants:  LOFT, gifted
Shoes: Merona



As much as I love thrifting, there comes a time when you just need to pay full price for something (I know!  I can't believe I said it, either!).  This belt is the last full-price clothing purchase I made, in April 2011.  It cost $17.99 from Target, and it cost more than the dress I bought it for, which was $10 on clearance at Old Navy (and, incidentally, is not one of my faves anymore).  This accessory has served me as well as a basic, wide, stretchy black belt can.  I regret not one penny that I spent on it.

And that's saying a lot, considering how cheap I am.

  1. I think this was a great belt to buy at full price. I hate paying full price for things too, but since I thrift a lot of my wardrobe I feel justified spending a few extra bucks on versatile accessories - which is exactly what this is! :) Enjoy your weekend, Rebecca!

  4. Love it! The outfit looks so great! The belt looks like it gives you great options for your wardrobe. When I don't need a super nice-looking belt, I go to Goodwill to get one for a dollar - but it's always a risk! : )

    1. Ha, you're right! Goodwill is a risk, no matter what. But, it's hard to pass up a belt for $1.59, isn't it?

    1. Thanks :) It's kind of an ongoing personal goal of mine -- to thrift or get my clothes on cheap, cheap clearance.
