NEW! Madison Mannequin: Fearless Thrift

Guest blogger Alexandra Graves is an intern here at Madison Magazine and my eye on the streets for all things chic, eccentric or otherwise inspirational. So check back weekly for the latest “Madison Mannequin,” posted every Tuesday from now on. Lex will be conducting all interviews and providing commentary for this special weekly segment.

New to the sale rack? It’s a jungle out there, but Virginia Rose, 61, is surviving and styling. Rose, a self-described fashionista and resale shopper, snagged her entire leopard ensemble for $10 at Marshall’s and topped off the look with boots from House of Thrift.

When she’s not working as an employment specialist at Goodwill Industries, Rose offers personal shopping through the Dane County Timebank. The best part? It won’t cost you a penny—Rose will trade you for whatever services or products you can barter.
