Did that Pinterest board just come to life?

Well…when I first watched the video for Alex Beadon’s #FeelGoodBloggingChallenge I was like “WHAT?!?!” How am I supposed to do that! Our challenge today was rather interesting and difficult at first. We were asked to teach YOU guys how to do something.Can I be honest here…..

The very first thing I thought of was when I was back in 3rd grade and was asked to write a “HOW TO” paper and I chose how to make a peanut butter and jelly(YUM). But since I am a tad older now I probably should think of something else. Well after some thought I knew what I was going to share! Now don’t laugh…but I am going to share with you guys how to recreate a PINTEREST inspired outfit.

Now before I dive into it I wanna share a few things. A few weeks ago when I was planning my details to launch my blog I cam e up with a bunch of ideas for blog topics. No kidding one of my ideas was to recreate Pinterest outfits for a segment I will be doing called “Thrifty Thursday!”

BUT WAIT…there’s MORE!

Let me share something else with you. I am an avid thrift shopper (hence the name title above). Yes, I said it! Now I know the song is playing in your head and if it wasn’t it probably is now…your welcome! But clearance racks are also my best friends!

I share this with you because I challenged myself. The challenge was that I can recreate an outfit in $20 or less every week. This is really just for fun & obviously to show you don’t need a million $$$ in your pocket to be a fashionista 😉

So I am not going to complicate this anymore…are ya ready? READY? GO:

Step 1: Go on Pinterest and aimlessly pin all day long. And when you see something you like PIN IT.

“Welcome to the board of ridiculously adorable clothes that I will never wear OR buy!”

I like that one! PIN onto the board of adorable clothes I will never wear...YAY!

Step 2: Choose outfit that you do actually really love (which will be all the them, DUH you pinned them) & print out.

fashion 0`Nope that is not me!

Step 3: GO SHOPPING! Make your pins come to life! & have patience. I say that because if your gonna do this right you may have to go to more then 1 store (I usually do). But clearly I don’t have a problem shopping because I just shared with you all “HOW TO” go shopping!




Easy enough right? My point here is if love something MAKE IT COME TO LIFE. I know it’s just clothes (Calm down). But That was fun!

*As I mentioned above I will be making this a weekly segment “Thrifty Thursday,”just a fun/goofy/chill page for fashion lovers like myself!* 

P.S. I spent a total of $16.00 to create this outfit! Woohoo GO ME 🙂

Much love.

  1. Ahhh Brooke I LOVE this post! I do the same thing every day…pin…pin…pin and I have YET to actually buy an outfit that resembles things I’ve pinned. Pieces yes, but a whole outfit…no. I am just loving your energy and can’t wait to see what great things are to come from you!

  2. Wonderful! I love this. Thrift shopping is so much fun~ you can find so many cool things! I discovered “Wicked Thrift” during my last visit to Cape Cod and got a few great items for my Senior Style Closet! Plus, I had a ton of fun shopping with my Bestie! xo

  3. Cute post (and outfit!) GREAT idea to actually print out the outfit you want to find so you don’t get lost in the racks & racks of clothes at the Thrift Shop, you have a PLAN!!!

  4. WOW WOW WOW! I am so overwhelmed with love right now! Thank you thank you to each and every one of your comments! I will be doing this once a week (maybe not starting next week) not sure yet! But this was so much fun! If you are in the Alex Beadon challenge I will catch ya soon! Much love to every single one of you xoxox

  5. Oh my goodness, I so don’t need anymore nudges or pushes to go shopping! 😉 Thrift stores are the best, they’re so ingrained in me that it’s hard to spend full price on clothes anywhere else. Cheers!

  6. This could actually be a fun idea to do with friends! You could bring a couple friends along shopping. Everyone could print out outfit ideas from Pinterest and then everyone has a set budget to shop and recreate one of the outfits!

    I’m doing the feel good blog challenge as well! I am a day behind you but you can check out my site at ashleygabrielle.com

  7. I’m so bad about just aimlessly pinning things. I need to put more into action! I pin a lot of things for photo shoots or window displays that I never even use. I need to bring them to life! Thanks girl!

  8. OMG! You are ADORABLE! Looooved this post and I will absolutely do this from now on. Genius, you are!!! I’m all about fashion but I lack vision. Thank you so much for this wonderful post!!

  9. Love, Love, Love!

    I NEVER pin the outfits I love because I know im never going to buy the clothes, how silly that It hadn’t occurred to me that I could just buy “inspired by” clothing at more inexpensive stores to get the same look. I love this idea, and I love your outfit! *heads away to pin*

    PS. I love your blog in general, you have a new follower. 🙂

  10. That was genius! Now I’m thinking i should have chose another topic. Something universal. Great post! I’ll be following. I’m a new blogger and I like the simplicity of your post.

  11. Hi Ashley, this was an interesting post and I think really necessary and crucial in our over-spending society today. One thing I was missing though was information about where you bought the clothes from, and if they were thrift finds, how long did it take you to find them!
