Frugal Fashion FCCLA
This Monday I had the opportunity to be an evaluator for the State FCCLA competition. It was a wonderful experience. I am so happy to learn more about FCCLA, but at the same time am very jealous my school did not have a chapter! This is certainly something I will implement as a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher.
If you did not have the priveledge to have FCCLA in high school you can visit their website to learn more. The program promotes student leadership through FCS curriculum areas, with the family as the central focus.
My “fashion” of the event:
Sweater, $.10 via thift, via Mom, free for me, layered over
Tank top via Gap, $15
Tank top via Old Navy, $6
Pencil skirt via Old Navy eons ago… I have no idea how much it cost. I’m pretty sure Mom paid, because it is from my sophomore year high school student senate competion
Pointed flats via Payless, about $15
Plarn crocheted tote, Free, of course! (not like it really counts as the “outfit”)
For a grand total of about $36
Which I find to be excellent, as only one item is thrifted.
It says a lot for classic pieces. My skirt is at least six years old but my outfit was still on-par with the other evaluators. I’m a big fan of thrifting, of course, but I think it pays to invest in staple items. I would rather pay $50 for a great fitting, great quality skirt, than to go through 3 or 4 thrifted skirts that are just mediocre. Although, if I find a great fitting, great quality skirt at the Depot for $2, that would be best.
