Her Fabuless Outfit: Top- $4.50 (Liz Claiborne) Value Village/ Pants- $1.99 Goodwill/ Earrings-  $1.99 Value Village
This week's Fabuless Thrifter is Otissa of Fashionably Me!. Based in Charlotte, Otissa inspires women to be fashionable on a modest budget through her blog and in-home fashion parties. She loves mixing vintage and modern pieces. "This lime green and purple outfit was inspired by a picture in Lucky Magazine," she said. " I think I channeled it well!" 

Where is your favorite place to thrift?
I am in love with one of the Value Villages here in Charlotte, N.C. This particular store has a ton of vintage pieces and bold accessories. I am sure to leave with something every time I visit this store!

How long have you been thrifting?
I have been thrifting since I was a young girl. I remember tagging along with my parents to yard sales and flea markets way back when. When I was a teen, my grandmother worked at a Value Village. I loved going there while she worked.

What's the most exciting thing about thrift shopping?
It’s finding unique and exclusive vintage pieces. There’s nothing worse than going to a function to find someone wearing the same outfit. I also love to change the look of an item. I often cut the fabric from longer dresses to shorten them or tapper a pant leg. 

What's your most "fabuless" find? 
A pair of authentic Gucci pumps that I nabbed from a consignment boutique for $60!
