What a frugal fashionista can buy for $15

It's Fashion Week in Saskatchewan, which to some people might suggest pricey

It's Fashion Week in Saskatchewan and to some that means pricey creations straight from the runways of Paris.

But not necessarily.

A crack team of Saskatchewan fashion mavens (OK, it was CBC's Geraldine Carriere and her pal ChasityDelorme) scoured Regina's thrift shops to prove that haute couture and shoe-string budgets can go hand in hand.

Here's are the places Delorme and Carriere checked out:

  • Salvation Army, 2735 5th Ave.
  • Salvation Army, 1845 Osler St.
  • Value Village, 1230 Broad St.
  • Anything Goes, 1940 McIntyre St.
  • Rhoda's Elegance Again, 3839 Albert St.
