Thrifty Thursday: An Introduction

5 08 2010

Welcome to the first edition of Thrifty Thursday! Being thrifty is key in today’s world but being thrifty doesn’t mean you have to be cheap. The essence of thriftiness is the ease and freedom of expression through un-conventional methods. It’s so important to create your own style and set yourself apart from everyone else who buys the same brands over and over. Anyone can buy the clothes, bags and shoes, but not everyone can wear them.

So, today let’s explore one of those un-conventional thrifty finds: the BC flip flops made out of a rice bag. Yes, a rice bag. These flops are so stinkin cute I can’t stand it, and the fact that they are eco-friendly, thrify and cheap makes them a must-have. Why are these so thrifty just because they are recycled you ask? Because every pair is different! That means you and your BFF can buy the same shoes and not be matchy-matchy. Hooray! The colors vary and no two pairs are the same. They are also a thrifty find because they are high-quality flip flops without the high-quality price tag. These little guys only retail for $30!

While I love this concept and the sandals, I wish the BC brand would make all of their shoes as fab and eco-friendly as these flip flops. In any case, they are still adorable and comfy and perfect for the first edition of Thrify Thursday.
