Frugal Fashion!

My friend Kacie is the writer of a great blog about being frugal. One of her recent posts was about a giveaway she's doing. The prize? A book about being a frugal fashionista. I put myself in the running for it, of course, although I don't consider myself a fashionista by any means. But I do love clothes and style -- and I hate paying full price for any of it. That's why I sew and alter my clothes, as well as shop thrift stores and sale and clearance racks almost exclusively, except when it's an item I just can't get anywhere else -- like comfortable shoes that won't kill my feet (I'm not a cobbler and cheap shoes, even from my beloved Target, have always let me down).

Anyway, even though I don't need another book, it's fun to support Kacie's blog and her giveaway. So head on over there and put your hat in the ring for one of the many giveaways she's having -- or just explore all the great advice and community she's developed in a mere few months of blogging and living a frugal lifestyle. She's a great writer, to boot.

And speaking of fashion (er, well, clothes, at least), I am planning on getting to my "to alter" clothes pile very soon, and I'll post about what I make. I'm also trying to come up with some posts about basic sewing stuff and how-tos, per a few friends' requests. Soon, I promise!

Thanks for your support! <3

Also, I haven't been to this blog page recently (normally, I just read it in Google reader). I see you've changed the layout. Cool!

Miss ya
