Frugal Spotlight: Go Jane


Go Jane! Go Jane! Go Jane! Where do I start?? I was introduced to Go Jane about 5 years ago during my Junior year of college and my Frugal shopping life was forever changed. I check their new arrivals page just about everyday not to mention they are always running some type of promo, $1 shipping, 30% off sale or regular price items, you name it! Me and Christen use Go Jane faithfully for "Look for Less" or "Frugal Finds" posts. But for the most part we are avid fans and customers of Go Jane. 

Go Jane is an online retailer of fashion forward apparel for the progressive young women. Over 14 years in the industry and with a team of great buyers and fashion fanatics Go Jane keeps it fresh and exciting for its customers. 

Here are some items I'm looking to purchase soon:

Splurge or Save: Beauty Edition

Eyebrow make your face. So for people like me who have very sparse brows, we need a little help. I almost never leave the house without my brows on. There are many different brow products out there, I use Make Up Forever Aqua Brow and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade both products are about $20 but they are worth it! Recently on YouTube I came across a review of NYX's new eyebrow gel in comparison to Make Up Forever's (MUFE). The NYX product is bigger and people have even said it is better! I love a good dupe so I'm definitely going to try it!
Splurge or Save
Splurge: Make Up Forever Aqua Brow $20 
Save: NYX Eyebrow Gel $7 (Available at NYX. Use Promo Code: WELCOME25 for 25% off)

The Look for Less: Goyard

Look for Less: Goyard

Summer is coming to an end and for some of us it time to get ready to head back to school, whether you are a student or teacher.  I have been searching high and low for a nice quality tote bag that would be good for both school and traveling. Goyard's Classic St Louis Tote was one of the bags on my wishlist. One day while shopping in T.J. Maxx, I stumbled upon a look for less of the bag. Check it out below! Both come in a variety of colors to choose from.

What's The TREND? Dolphin Hem

Designers high and low have been making dolphin hem tops, dresses, skirts, and shorts for a while, but lately they have been all over. Dolphin hem items are curved on the sides or front; they mimic dolphin running short which people have been wearing for ages.  I'm completely obsessed with this trend. Here are some of my favorite dolphin hem items all under $50!
 
Are you feeling this trend?

Meet Frugal Shopaholic Meredith Tuttle

Name: 
Meredith

Where are you from?

 Northern CA

Explain your Instagram name. 

 My IG handle is @thedailymer because my account offers a little glimpse into my interests (thrift shopping, altering clothes, reading) pretty much daily. 

Describe your personal style?

 My style is classic eclectic feminine with a modern twist.
Where are your favorite places to shop? In my town my favorite place to shop is a store that's half consignment boutique and half thrift store. It's right by my house so I consign, shop and even volunteer there!


What does being a "Frugal Shopaholic" mean to you? 
"Frugal shopaholic" means (to me) someone who loves shopping but who's only willing to spend on a good deal.

What is a frugal shopaholic tip or trick that can share with our readers? 

My biggest tip is find out what days your local thrift stores have even better deals. For example, some stores offer half off days or dollar-a-bag sales, the ultimate deal! Knowing a tiny bit of sewing goes a long way as well.
