WELCOME TO THRIFTONISTA!

Thriftonista (TM- trademark) is a term I coined to describe a girl who recognizes that being fashionable is not about how much money you spend but about spending your money on clothes that allow you to express your own unique sense of style while looking great, feeling fabulous and still being able to pay those bills!
If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at thriftonista@gmail.com or leave a comment right here.
Thank you!

Mission Accomplished













My show at the Fabric Lab was a total success and so so so so so much fun! I was able to debut a lot of my new designs, which was just so thrilling! Here are some pictures (click on the little collage to see it bigger). Please let me know if anything catches your eye.
For the record, all of my pieces were made with vintage fabric. My designs are the high necked dress and jumpsuit, the one strapped multicolored dress, the one sleeved green dress, the long sleeved shimmery green dress and the harem pants. I modified the yellow dress by dyeing it in turmeric and the maroon dress by shortening it to give it volume and the unitard was another one of my bleach projects. Feedback is loved and appreciated!
