Goodwill Fashion Re-works: Under $25 bucks

Hello 
I'm really excited about my partnership with Goodwill San Antonio, officially a fashion blogger for the San Antonio stores. I will mainly concentrate on women's fashion trends and styling, incorporating a DIY Element and showing the process of the garment as it transforms into contemporary clothing for today's fast forward fashion enthusiast. Today our budget was $25.00, and this look is the result.
I trekked out to the Dezavala store, met with Sherri, the store manger, who was extremely helpful and kind.  the idea for this post was  that it had to have some glamour appeal and still be cool for the hot days and  summer nights in Texas, an ensemble that was carefree yet fashion forward ,and be under the  budget. Hope this is helpful and informative. Let's go shopping!

The Dezavala store
Found the plaid flips $2.99 
The oversized rayon scarf $1.99 ...score in yellow!
The bundle of goods..checkout!
So I started with the linen pajama pants $2.99, cut them into shorts and cuffed them.
The finished look. Satin day/evenings shorts with cuff. Effortless yet classic.
Juicy couture cotton tie-dye $3.99  Cut both of the sleeves for the bare shoulder look.
Yellow scarf $1.99 Tied several knots to create a neck piece that wasn't so over bearing.
Belts $1.99 each. Contrasting textiles to create a layered look with detail 
The plaid flip- flops $2.99  flats runway bound.
The finished look. Under $25.00 fresh and classic. 
Add a small feminine necklace to finish off. All the details matter. Go out and look fabulous!
Happy Goodwill hunting...changing lives and inspiring others.......................next time-A
