Thrift and Shout on the News: Back to School Fashion Show

I did my monthly thrifty news segment on Fox 28 this morning. We did a back to school fashion show. I know, don't hate me! It's coming up whether you like it or not! 
It went really well! I felt even more comfortable this time! And my models looked beautiful and did an amazing job! Even the Producer was impressed with their modeling skills! 

The link has not been posted yet but I will put it up when it is!

Here are some shots of everyone getting ready:
 Me pinning skinny mini Acacia's pants so they would stay up!
 Yes, we get ready in an office room
 Trying to get Acacia's boots zipped up- it was not easy!
 Aunt Brenda even offered up her socks to help Acacia get into the boots! What a sacrifice!
 Sarah absolutely loved her hot pink sequin Converse that I got from Goodwill for only $4.29!
 Sarah's purse- a Loeffler Randall for Target via Goodwill $2
 The gorgeous models (from the left) Acacia, Sarah, and Rachel.
