The before pics of the top and sweat pants.
So over the weekend I came across these really cute sweat shorts while I was out and about the city. I loved them and contemplated getting them. I however have these rules for myself where I see an item and then decide whether it's worth paying the asking price. Most of the time the answer is no. I mean, the shorts were only $42.95. Now you're probably wondering why I even had to mull that over considering I can pay through the nose for designer shoes and bags. Those are different, they are pieces, for me anyways, worth investing in. When it comes to clothes, I have set prices in my head of how much I'm willing to pay. $42.95 is a hefty amount to pay for a pair of sweat shorts for me, so my mind went into over drive and thought about buying the material and just making it from scratch. I decided to make it less painful for myself and just buy the sweat and alter it instead.
This is where K-Mart comes to mind. That place is a treasure trove for frugal fiends like me. I see a lot of clothing items there that are amazing on their own or can become amazing with a little alteration or an addition of a button. The top cost me $5.50 and the sweat pants were $8.50. Did a little snip and tuck and voila! I have myself a sporty luxe outfit that probably cost less than the petrol I used to obtain the items.
These are the types of outfits I love, they can look great whether dressed up or down. Also great for lazy dressers like me.
