3 Ways One Cover-Up (Look #3 NightingGal)

Working that beach cover up at night may seem a little out of the box, but as we like to think at Polished for Pennies, potential lies in everything and it’s all about how you look at something! So if you look at that beach cover up as more of a tunic, your mind will get […]

Oh La La Ode to a Simple Dinner*

The first thing that came to mind when I wanted to throw a dinner for friends with an ode to “Oh La La “, was the thought of a simple meal with special details that wouldn’t break the bank. A simple meal that would still be sophisticated and tasty, but decorated by a table that […]

A White In-Vestment*

Hey Gal Pals… remember the black in-VESTment from Marshalls we styled? Well how about I found the same vest in white at TJ Maxx for the same price of $29.99! I couldn’t help myself but to grab both! For that Polished for Pennies price and the luxurious quality it’s got, going good girl in white […]

Give a One Hit Wonder Another Hit!

  I was going through some of my Polished for Pennies archives and came across a few more burgundy jumper photos from our Where to Shop for What Pops! Gigi’s Consignment post! And it dawn on me… What a great example of how to transform a look from one feel to another by swamping out accessories! This is […]

Be your own Valentine this weekend by loving every bit of your body. Hug your curves in leather.

On a recent trip to Jomar I found the vintage leather skirt I”m rocking for […]

City Fringe POP*

Who would have thunk a top with this much life and personality… AND POP would only cost $24.99? This super sweet sweater from Marshalls was full of POP so it had to be grabbed off the rack! Being that it was so different and how much I love making a style statement, I wanted to show you […]

Shade Ink*

The inspiration behind this look Gals was an ink pot… it’s amazing how one visual of inspiration can get the mind going, but that’s all it took! So when I thought of “September in Shades”, what came to mind was dark black and blue hues. In this case, a visual of blue and black ink, dripping, […]

An Artsy Birthday Idea!

You don’t have to have a lot of money to throw a great party. You just have to be thoughtful, and at Polished for Pennies, we like to think that if we invest a lot of creativity in what is already around us, that what we do spend money on shouldn’t cost us a fortune! […]

If You Like Your Coffee: Black*

So you’re a simple Gal. You take your coffee black… You appreciate simplicity but a must is your lust for bold richness. You understand that life may just be what it is sometimes, just how your coffee’s just black, but you also believe that just because something stands alone that doesn’t mean it can’t have JOLT. Just […]

Roaring Resale Romper for the Weekend*

    Gals, there’s nothing I appreciate more than the satisfaction of purchasing someone else’s trash and making it my treasure. For example, I frequent a place called Jomar often, and they’re a place that sells a whole bunch of items from department store and QVC leftovers, to random furnishings to fabric, and more and more […]
