Thrifty Girl Thursday: Giveaways pay off!

It’s that time of the week again! Time for another cheapie outfit by yours truly.

I wore this outfit to work on a day when I had a few meetings to go to. I don’t dress up for work because I work in a lab in my very, VERY casual department on campus. Professors in our department have a reputation for looking pretty schlubby: ripped jeans, gross t-shirts from conferences in the 80s, nasty loafers. You get the picture.

Earrings: Kohl’s, gift from blueviolet – $0
Necklace: Kohl’s, gift from blueviolet – $0
Green striped t-shirt: Plato’s closet – $5
Cutoff shorts: Gap, cut off by me, hand-me-down from aunt – $0
Born floral wedges: Won from a Twitter contest – $0
TOTAL: Five dollars! FIVE DOLLARS!

Photo creds: Suz. (That’s why my head is cut off.)

Here’s a closeup of the shoes. That’s right, I won these puppies in a Twitter giveaway! You can read my sparkling review of them at my blog if you click here. If you’d like to be my Twitter friend, you can follow me here. I’ll be honest, I’m pretty hilarious sometimes. I recommend me!
