New Year's Resolutions

As many of you know, I do so love shopping. I however have to keep within a budget and sometimes that budget gets strained. So my resolution this year is to be more frugal and to buy less and make more. I really need to be more crafty and stop being such an impulse buyer. Does this mean I will stop following trends? Hell no! It just means I will have to be more thrifty and ingenious in my ways of following them. It also means more thrift store shopping which is so much fun! Of course as I say this I found a lovely little vintage store online with wonderful clothes that are way out of my price range, sigh. Her mark-up is horrible! But I am saving pictures of my favourite items and I will be sewing them up so all is not lost! After all, that is what Style on a Shoestring is all about. Being fabulously stylish on a budget!

Here are some of my latest finds so you know I am not completely out of the game :)

Retro Glam

Vintage hat Tom gave me for Yule from my wishlist :)

Vintage coat was a gift from my daughter Tarah's friend AJ who got it from a yard sale

Vintage lace slip from castlecharm on etsy for $7.00. Totally cute peeking out! This outfit was so much fun to wear!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve and that your year to come will be filled with laughter and love and of course, loads of style! I look forward to spending it with you.
