As a performer for a living, some lucky days I can dine at the Ritz, and some days I’m rocking a PBJ on a paper towel for dinner.
You know what I’m talking about.
And holidays can be stressful as fuck because well…presents, parties, and you gotta look GOOD enough to keep em’ talking, girl.
The secret is how you hold yourself and how you adorn yourself.
You can make a $2 thrift dress look like it’s off the runway with a few simple things.
I did a $5 accessory challenge in the past and if you haven’t seen it…
well ain’t no time like the present:
My mission: to make a vintage accessorized look for less than $5.
This is what I found at my local thrift store’s jewelry ‘junk’ drawer:
♥ Broken Faux Pearl Necklace: 75 cents
♥ One clip-on earring (other one missing): free
♥ Bronze chain: $1.50
♥ Costume jewelry rings that don’t fit my fingers: $2.00
Total Damage: $4.25
Now let’s create a Vintage Bohemian Goddess Look – it’s as easy as 1-2-3.
- Take broken necklace, drape across your head and add bobby pins to secure- instant bohemian crown. Serve up some 1920s REALNESS.
2. Take the one clip-on earring and clip to front of dress for instant vintage high glamour.
Oh and PS – beyond the accessories which cost me under $5 – I snagged the vintage peach slip for $8 – bringing the entire outfit AND accessories to $12.25.
Hell yes. Mama’s got rent to pay and adventures to have. I can’t be spending all my cash on clothes.
