Feliz Cinco de Mayo

Clara’s Top 3 Frugal Fashion Tips for Cinco de Mayo:

1. Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to dress up in bright colors and fancy shoes! Yellow is very hip this season. Be confident — Walk that catwalk and strut your stuff.

2. A smile is the best way to dress up any outfit, and it doesn’t cost a penny!

3. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with colorful necklaces (stolen borrowed from Mommy) and tissue paper flowers… fun and frugal!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!
