Thrift and Shout on the News

Well I just got home from my 3rd television performance and I'm feeling good! It went really well but I'm just glad it's over! In case you don't know, I have the privileged of being on our local channel Fox 28 every 4th Monday to talk about my thrift store finds! It's a little nerve wracking but a lot of fun!
This month I did Runway looks for less and you will not believe how cheap these outfits are that I put together especially considering that designer clothes cost so much!

The Lace Trend
-seen on the runways of Valentino, Carolina Herrera, Max Azria, and Donna Karan
- keep it neutral and sophisticated
-try mixing 2 different types of lace together 
Here is the runway look from Valentino:
 Here I am in my version of the look:
Jacket: Goodwill $3.99
Skirt: Volunteers of America $3
Shoes: Colin Stuart via Goodwill $3.99
Total: $11

The Polka Dot Trend
-Polka dots have never really been out but they are especially hot right now thanks to the runways of Moschino, Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Oscar De La Renta.
-Keep the look fun and playful 
-black and white are great but also try primary colors- red, blue, and yellow

Belt: $1.99

The Neon Trend:
-As seen on the runways of Alice & Olivia, Miu Miu, Christopher Kane, Proenza Schouler
-This is not your 80's neon look!
-keep the silhouettes ladylike
- try mixing 2 neon colors in a single outfit

The Floral Trend:
