A Celebrity Inspired Thrifty Thursday…

’tis true my lovelies…I have joined the fabulously frugal foxes of the internet’s #ThriftyThursday!

…and just what does that mean?

Every Thursday I shall be posting a groovy thrifted/handmade ensemble to (hopefully) help inspire more people to realize that buying new is simply not necessary to achieve fabulous style…

This week’s outfit is inspired by the always amazingly arrayed Jessica Alba:

I was so enamoured by the funky plaid cowl neck shirt she’s wearing in the photo that I (re)created one for myself! *head over here for the tutorial 

Studded biker jacket (thrifted) €6  –  Cowl neck flannel shirt (thrifted & refashioned) €1  – Betsey Johnson Leggings (thrifted, new in the package!) €1  – Buckled Biker Boots (ebay) €4  –  Vintage Driving Gloves (inherited from Tante Uschi) €0

Total outfit cost: €12

I am seriously in love with my steal-of-a-deal boots!

Waddaya think of my first thriftastic outfit post?

“Thrifty Sheri” was created by the phenomenally awesome & insanely talented Johanna Schricker of Basteldibix
