Frugal Fashionista - For the Office

Shopping secondhand is not only how I save money on clothes for the kids, but also how I save on clothes for myself.  Our office has a business casual dress policy with casual Fridays.  So largely by thrifting, I've been able to find items appropriate for work.

Please excuse my one-handed photography! 

Blue v-neck top (Wet Seal) -  $0 (trash to treasure)
Black tank - $0 (trash to treasure)
Black & White floral skirt - $3.39 (Goodwill)
