Fru Gal vs. $teal - Mint

So, Fru Gal was featured in the Red Eye again this week.  There is no denying that she has great taste.  I commend her on the fashions she finds, but not so much the prices of them. 

frugal: fru·gal  adj.
1. Practicing or marked by economy, as in the expenditure of money or the use
of material resources. 2. Costing little; inexpensive

I guess this is all relative...

This week she melted for mint. 


Total: $363.85

And after going on my own shopping excursion, I melted for mint too (with money to spare!):

Total: $142.66

Savings: $221.19

Will the real Fru Gal please stand up?

  1. I agree! I can't stand that when you see articles that are supposed to be featuring affordable fashion and everything is still $50 and up! Love your picks!
