Meet Frugal Shopaholic LaNatria Renee Ellis

My name is LaNatria Renee Ellis.

Where are you from?
 I am a blogger living in Garland, NC. The only claim to fame for my small and rural town is the Brook's Brothers Outlet store lol.

Explain your blog or Instagram name?
My IG name is Caribbean Cowgirl. It is a reflection and reverence to my both my southern upbringing and my paternal heritage (my father is Jamaican).

Describe your personal style?
 My mother and father are to whom I owe the most credit . My mother made sure all 5 kids and my father were always dressed to the nines even on the most modest of budgets. She did so through bargain hunting and thrifting. My father, being Jamaican, was a man of many talents which including sewing and tailoring. Their frugal yet fun approach to looking nice are the inspiration behind my affordable and fun street style looks. Growing up in small town, with such a broad approach to fashion and style, I got plenty of odd stares but I used to it now.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
 My favorite place to shop is a local thrift store in Elizabethtown, NC. Not only am I supporting local charity, but some of my most fabulous finds came from there including my Louis Vuitton Speedy for $15! I am also a very avid online shopper. The sites I frequent most are SheInRomweH&MGoJaneZara and my newest fine

What does being a “Frugal Shopaholic” mean to you?
Being a 'Frugal Shopaholic' means knowing how to get the best bang for your buck. As a frugal shopaholic, I know what it means to get a deal which includes comparison shopping, reading reviews, and revamping old items through DIY projects.

What is a frugal shopaholic tip or trick that can share with our readers?
A tip I would share is if the deal is too good to pass up...just get it! For a steal you can always redesign the item guilt-free knowing you didn't pay a lot, or you could even bless a friend with it. Anytime I have passed up a deal too good to be true, I have regretted it. 

How can we keep in touch with you? 
You can keep up with me through my blog or on Instagram @caribbean_cowgirl.
