Thrifty Thursday - All About Maurices

To me, being thrifty is just about scoring a deal.  Whether that deal be at the thrift store, at the grocery store, on a vacation or while shopping for more clothes that really aren't necessary. Anytime I find a deal, I get all happy and excited. =)  Today it's all about Maurices. Seriously, if you don't know about them, check them out! They have really cute stuff at great prices. And when they have their Extra 75% Off sale every couple of months, you can score cute stuff on the cheap!

Dress ($10), Shoes ($7) & Belt ($7) - Maurices
Necklace - Borrowed from my sis
Bracelets - Target? I think...
 
 The dress almost looks brown in the pictures, but it's actually olive green. And how about those leopard print flats?? I love them!

Shirt: Maurices (Thrifted)
Dress as a skirt: Borrowed from my sis
Bracelets, Belt & Shoes: Target
Flower clip: Flapper Fashions

I actually got the Maurices shirt at our thrift store. I've thrifted a few Maurices pieces (haha, I rhymed!) recently. One was a skirt that is about 4 pounds too small. I call that a little bit of motivation. =)

Maurices, huh? Interesting...maybe I haven't given the Maurices near me a decent try. I love the professional clothes that they have--but I'm supah picky about what I'll pay that much for. I suppose that (when I return to the shopping world) I will make a visit.

Love these looks, by the way.

You look great in both outfits! I especially like the olive green with the leopard. Duh, I haven't tried that combo yet :)

When I saw Maurices pieces, it got me wanting Reese's pieces, lol!

I love these! That green dress is fantastic and I'm totally in love with those wedges. I love the top too!

We don't have a Maurice's anywhere near here. I've never seen one! So sad!

Ohmygoodness those leopard flats are tooo cute. Love them with that olive dress. We had a Maurice's move in a town away, but I've never been.

I absolutely love a good deal! I always buy things on sale and a lot of times can find things for about the same price I'd pay for secondhand. Love your wide belt!

Love the styling of the first look! The cheetah shoes are a terrific unexpected bonus! Your waist is teeny tiny! Jealous, um YES:)

Thank you for the link to Maurice's! I'd never heard of them before but those flats of yours were all the advertising I needed..

Rhoda said...

Let's talk about how I used to live by Maurice's and now... I don't. :(

Let's talk about how I love that dress and I love that it was $10!

And let's talk about how I just bought those same black wedges in your second picture. :)

Lovin' your style girly!

LOVE your pink maxi! I really want to find one. Can't believe you thrifted it. I really like the yellow nails too, that bit of shimmer makes it!

Bonnie said...

That olive dress is just lovely. I have always wanted to find an olive dress of my own, but I can't seem to find the right one. Boo face. I need to look harder!!

Such a beautiful dress! I love a good olive green, especially paired with the brown belt and yellow accessories. And you definitely can't go wrong with some leopard print thrown in :)

Mongs said...

two great outfits! I've to say it again, you're good with colors and they always look so chic on you. The dress as a maxi skirt is a fantastic idea! I like the olive dress, it fits you prefect!
