To find a complete fabulous outfit for $50.
An amazing ‘eurotrash’ stylish outfit (complete with boots) that I love:
1. Marciano jeans (perfect condition AND already hemmed) $9.99
2. Upside down tank top shirt with ribbon detail, screen print and jewelled embellishment $12.99
3. Fake Prada purse (that I gave to a thankful friend because of my adversity to fake bags) $7.99
4. Knee-high Italian leather boots $12.99
5. Grey velvet cropped jacket $12.99
When I began this challenge of finding a complete, head-to-toe fall outfit, I could have opted for a cutesy dress and cardigan combo or 80s tapered pants and boyfriend blazer – but decided on more practical pieces that I could mix and match and get the most wear out of: jeans and a shirt.
Value Village has a huge selection of jeans, nicely organized by size, ranging from $7.99 to $9.99. The two pair of jeans I ended up buying – Marciano and Club Monaco – were in great condition and fit perfectly!
I passed up many colorful vintage pumps for these boots. Although they’re a few seasons old, I could not pass up the $12.99 price tag for perfect condition leather Italian designer super high boots that’ll look great worn over jeans or even with a dress.
I attempted to seek out the perfect ‘vintage’ boyfriend blazer but came upon this fabulous grey velvet cropped jacket for $12.99! I splurged on this trip and bought a second jacket – a snug, bleached zip-up jean jacket!
Value Village stores are all over the city – all with different inventory that changes constantly! For the best finds and deals you should try to peruse often.
