take a peek and save

i’m a sucker for artsy, avant-garde pieces.

as an art school graduate, i have great appreciation for creative housewares, charming knick-knacks and unique accesories. if i ever need a little mommy break, you’ll mostly likely find me at thrift shops, flea markets and discount designer stores. i love me a good find! even better, is a good find at a great price.

recently, i came across a wonderful website which features quality products created by artisans. i expected the prices to by sky-high but to my surprise, they were incredibly reduced. i’m so excited to share this innovative style of shopping with you.

while browsing, i earned badges just for being a new member and “peeking” at items which interested me. pretty awesome, if you ask me.

this organic, handmade set by metropolis soap company, also caught my fancy. they retail for $24 and the sneakpeek price was $17.00. with my badges, i qualified for even more discounts–$10 (guaranteed for 14 days) or 10% off (guaranteed for 3 days). i chose the $10.00 option, and my price was only 7 buckaroos, a 70% savings! …and i also get free shipping with purchases of $49 or more.

now, that’s what i can frugal shopping.

If I could go shopping right now

Isn’t it just perfect for this time of year. It’s hipster-chic, yet comfortable enough to wear with baby in tow. I love the faux fur vest. Must feel so warm and cozy on these chilly days. Those colored jeggings are so in right now  have been trendy for a while (but I obviously missed out somewhere in between wiping baby vomit and trying to keep my sanity). So I really really want a pair! The stretchy fabric is so forgiving. That teal (such a great color) is a wonderful statement piece. A hand-woven purse give this outfit a bohemian feel. Which makes this look even more laid back. Striped shirts are friends to petite girls like myself. I appreciate how it gives the illusion of a fuller chest and balances my lower half. And the one item which makes it super mommy friendly is….(drum roll)…those comfy flats. I could practically live in those loafers.They’re like fancy slippers. This is one of those I’m-not-trying-hard-but-I-still-look-put-together kind of outfits. It’s the perfect solution to the wanna-be-fashionista-mamas like myself. The cherry on top is this entire ensemble totals at $182.00Frugal is soooo in these days, didn’t you get the memo?
