  5. I love the way the yellow blouse adds a POP of color in the first picture. And that leather skirt? Umm... I'm going to need that in my life! Stat!

  6. Woohoo - love that skirt lady. Check out my post today, Goodwill Fall Haul as I found some great skirts on Saturday.

  7. Wow, just discovered your blog via Monday Mingle. Love the thrifting feature. Your models are lovely, and your thrifting finds pretty darn cool :)

  8. What an exciting opportunity! I love your models' looks, but especially love yours with that cheerful yellow. What I enjoy most about fall dressing is all the layers and cozy textures. The best!!! ~Sarah

  9. Congratulations for this amazing opportunity! And I LOVE all the outfits, I think they are all very trendy for the Fall, especially all the layering and different textures, they are so perfect for the transition and changing of seasons! You're even giving me some inspiration to play with similar pieces from my wardrobe!

  11. WOW- that is so cool that you get to do a feature on your fashion finds on the news! That must be so fun! Now ever more people can see how to shop for less :-)

  12. How fun, I love how all the outfits were under $20, reflected fall trends and that all of them were a different style (and looked great on each of the beautiful models).
