Pinterest fashion for frugalistas
Pinterest is lots of fun, but the down side is that it can sometimes leave you wishing for things you can’t afford. One of my favorite pin boards on my Pinterest page is my Style and Loveliness board. If you check it out, you’ll see I’ve got my fair share of ‘if I were a princess’ pins. But the real value of that board to me is the way it helps me look at what I’ve already got with new eyes.
I already own most of these neutral items. Accessorizing isn’t something I am especially good at, so this pin, and other similar ones on my board, give me nice hints to pull outfits together in ways I haven’t considered before.
The next few pins were inspired by my much-beloved jeans jacket. I found the jacket for $8 at a consignment store, and wear it OFTEN. I love the pearls and denim look, and have a long brown skirt just the style of the grey one in that third pin. Any of these ideas would also look nice with a lightweight denim shirt, I think.
I love to pin haircut ideas. These caught my eye lately, and will be helpful in communicating with my hair salon lady the next time I go in for a haircut.
I also like to pin nail polish ideas for my girls. They’re always painting their nails, and ideas like the cute ones here can be found in abundance on Pinterest. What’s your favorite way to use Pinterest in a frugal way?
