Robyn on the Mike and Juliet Show!

November 11, 2008

Hello all,

 

style

 

I had a NUTTY last week! In addition to the excitement of the election (YAY!!!!!!!!!!) I had the honor of making over FOUR beautiful women for the super fun Mike & Juliet show on Fox. The challenge: I could only shop at a thrift store and had a budget of $100 for each look, including shoes and accessories!

It was exhausting, but inevitably FANTASTIC!! I found a GORGEOUS $400 BCBG dress for $25, a $200 Calypso dress for 10 bucks, and a $500 pair of Moschino pumps for $35!! Yeow! I went to Beacon’s Closet and Buffalo Exchange in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For non-New Yorkers, don’t fret: Buffalo Exchange is a NATIONWIDE chain, I just visited the one in Austin, and it too was POSH-tastic!

Here are some tried and true tips I gave, and check out the segment below to see the luxe looks for less.

xxoooxxoo, Robyn

PS- The cute grey sweater dress I’m wearing on the show was only $13 from Buffalo Exchange!!

3 Tips for Thrift Store Scouring

1. Hit out of the way thrift stores because they are less picked over. Take a day trip and hit the suburbs. 

2. Ask if they have “tag sale days“ or sale days where you can net even lower bargains. Thrift stores have ton’s O’ merchandise to move, so they are motivated to sell!

3. Many thrift stores will take clothing trades so make sure you ask!
