My name is Valarie.  I am a lawyer, a homeschool mom, a wife…and a Believer.  When I graduated law school, I was led to believe that I needed to spend several thousand dollars on a work wardrobe.  But years later, I realized that I didn’t need to go further into debt to build that wardrobe.  I just needed to shop smarter.

And then I finally listened to my mother’s advice…FINALLY.  My mother is a tried-and-true thrifter.  Her idea of “me time” is browsing her local thrift store, seeing what bargains she can find.  I don’t think my mother wears a single piece of clothing that she bought brand new!  My mom firmly believes that you don’t have to pay full price to look fashionable. Simply put, it is possible to look Posh for Pennies.

So I took my mother’s advice to heart.  I uploaded to Poshmark all of the work wardrobe that, years later, I no longer wear and no longer need.  I buy my clothes second-hand and style them to match today’s most fashionable looks.  I splurge only on key pieces that I can use day after…and sell them next season on Poshmark.  

By saving money on my clothing, I can spend money on more important areas, like beauty and skincare.  (Let’s face it, I’m not getting any younger and need to look fabulous over forty!)  And I can show you how to do the same!  When you follow this blog and my social media accounts,  I will show you how to save money on clothing while looking fashionable, allowing you to splurge on more important items like skincare, makeup, and beauty products!
