All Dolled Up: Telly Mallory loves a good deal

Telly Mallory loves fashion, but more than fashion, she loves finding a good deal. She's a bargain shopper who can frequently be spotted at resale shops like the Salvation Army, Plato's Closet, and locally owned vintage boutiques. She not only buys into the notion that everything old is new again, she also digs deep for super cheap accessories at stores like Dots.

Mallory began training her eye to spot a good bargain at a young age, when money was tight in her family. She learned to find treasure in other people's castoffs, and years of honing her skills have paid off.

To better explore her passion for fashion, Mallory recently launched her very own fashion blog. On TellyLovesFashion.blogspot.com you can follow her fashion exploits, marvel at her amazing finds, and maybe learn a thing or two about how to put together a great outfit.

When she isn't in search of a great deal or chronicling her life in fashion, Mallory enjoys bowling with her husband and spending time with her family.
