A "Compact-y" outfit is used or recycled, so basically something you got at the Goodwill, a thrift store, or a consignment shop.
The Non Consumer Girl is modeling her recent score of a fully lined silk dress from Jigsaw, her favorite label. It's gorgeous. She bought it at the Goodwill for $20. Before she joined The Compact, she paid over $300 for other similar Jigsaw styles. Incidentally, the photographer is her 5-year-old daughter...
Check out her blog to read about her conversion to a non-consumer lifestyle, and her decluttering challenges. I'm joining her in her goal of making $5000 this year by turning clutter into cash. So far, she's made $1535. I've made a little less than that: nada. But I'll get there, I've got time... Baby steps. That's my mantra these days.
Thanks Non Consumer Girl for sharing your fabulous find with us- you look amazing. Readers- I know she's a tough act to follow, but I want to do this as a regular feature, so put on YOUR best thrift store scores, take a photo, and send it to me. You can find my email address on my profile page.
And please don't be shy- we all want to see REAL women with REAL bodies modeling their version of fabulous. That could mean funky, elegant, creative, or anything you want it to mean. I can't wait to see all your fabulous finds!
