The Look For Less: Isabel Marant

The Look for Less: Isabel Marant
A frugal shopaholic can dream right? I spotted these Isabel Marant boots on Instagram that are too die for! But unfortunately for me they are $810. But of course it wouldn't be right if I didn't find the look for less. On my daily forever21.com run through I came across this Isabel Marant inspired boot. They look so muck like!

The Look:
Isabel Marant Nowles Ankle Boots $810  

For Less:  Chukka Wedge Bootie $40

Would you buy them? Hot or not?

What's The TREND? Flatflorms

Flats are a staple item for your wardrobe each and every season. But this fall/winter we've been formally introduced to "flatorms". Flats with a platform that give you a little height and add a little spunk to your wardrobe. Ive purchased a one pair of flatforms and I love them. They always give me a retro feel. I've seen various styles including espadrille, brogue and sneaker flatforms. Below are some frugal options!

What's The Trend: Flatforms

What do you think? Flatforms.....Hot or Hmm?

Meet Frugal Shopaholic: Charlie


Where are you from? 
Chapel Hill, NC

Explain your blog or Instagram name. 
 I am a frugal shopper who loves to catch deals. I LOVE vintage clothing so I shop at many thrift stores as well shopping malls to get the look that I am looking for. I decided to go with the name FrugalFabFashion because I’m frugal, fabulous, and I love fashion!!!

Describe your personal style. 
I LOVE and LIVE for bright colors. I love to step outside of the box and explore the fashion world. I really love a vintage and classy look. Ladies always remember that you can be sexy but classy as well. That’s my motto.

Where are your favorite places to shop? 
My favorite places to shop would be ANY thrift store or shopping mall but my heart belongs to the Durham Rescue Mission Thrift store. It feels great to find a deal and to know that the purchases I make from the Durham Rescue Mission will help those who are in need. I love to give back and look great while doing it.

What does being a “Frugal Shopaholic” mean to you? 
Being a Frugal Shopaholic means that you are a beauty on budget and that you are dressing well and looking your best for less. My fashion blog shows you how to look great without spending all of your hard earned money!

What is a frugal shopaholic tip or trick that can be shared with our readers? 
Some tricks or tips that I use are COUPONS!! They are EVERYWHERE! The app RetailMeNot helps me out a lot. It’s an app that can be downloaded on your phone for FREE to show you where the discounts are in your area. Also, if you are a frequent thrift store shopper like me, you could sign up for their mailing list. While being on the mailing list you receive coupons. Yep that’s right, coupons for the thrift store. It can't get any better than that.

How can we keep in touch with you? 
You can keep in touch with me by following me on instagram at @frugalfabfashion

Best Deals for Black Friday

My favorite holiday (Black Friday) is only days away. Unfortunately for me, I won't be able to participate in the madness this year. Typically, I use Black Friday to purchase electronics and household items that I've been wanting all year, and Cyber Monday to buy clothes, shoes, and other stuff. I've sifted through a number of online flyers and ads and honestly I' m not impressed. The same items are on sale year after year, TVs, iPads, blah blah blah. Nonetheless I found a few deals.
Black Friday Deals

Element  29in Flat Panel LED HD TV at Target // Panasonic 50in LED TV at BestBuy // HP Intel Celeron Touch Laptop at Walmart // RCA 7-in Google Play Wi-Fi Tablet at Radio Shack // Canon EOS Rebel T5 18-55 Kit at eBay.com // Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Portable Speaker at Walmart
