We’re Baaaaack!!

SewFrugal is back after a long and much needed hiatus. Sew Frugal will soon resume highlighting everything #vintage #fashionable #frugal and sewn. 👗👛👜Sew Frugal & Fashionable is getting refocused on #thrifting and #refashioning in 2017. 

With that in mind SewFrugal recently went on a mission to find various strands of pearls. If you have followed my running IG page you are familiar with #RunsWithPearls I love pearls and believe they can be worn with anything from jeans to ball gowns. Recently I misplaced my favorite strand of pearls. Devastating!! 

Needless to say I nearly wiped out a few #vintage #Thrift stores on the north side of Chicago. Here are a few #fabulousfinds

Looking forward to rocking these in the near future. #pearls #pearlnecklace #fashion

Oh here we go. Pearls sufficiently rocked!

Ebay items are going up

Recently SewFrugal decided to get back to selling a few items on eBay and what a joy it has been. 

While I have been in the process of decluttering I realized I have many great items that really don’t belong in the thrift store. From dresses to tablewear to shoes I plan to offer a few unique items and welcome your feedback.

Thrifting Thursday’s – Pantaloons👖👖👖👖

Thrifting Thursday! 

Sew Frugal is slowly but surely getting back to thrifting and we are beginning with “Thrifting Thursday’s”. On Thursday’s we will showcase the latest thrift scores and we welcome guest thrifters. 

This week we addressed the need for work pants and jeans. SF Scored three pairs of slacks three pairs of jeans and a fun pair of capri’s. 

Total spent $40. 
All slacks are fully lined. Banana republic and Ralph Lauren. Slightly flared leg, one with cuffs and flat front straight legged. The jeans, Abercrombie and Fitch, Gap 1969 and lucky brand jeans. Straight and flared. Gotta have some variety with styles changing so quickly.
