I continue to be surprised at my little thrifting adventures! I saw this dress a few weeks ago at a local thrift store. I was in a hurry and really didn't feel like trying anything on so I passed it up. I could tell from the looks of it, that it was a dress that would only work if the fit was just right. I NEVER expected to see it again because it's pretty current. (In my neck of the woods, vintage stays on the racks a long time, but more current items move quickly) So I was quite surprised when I went in last week and saw it STILL on the racks. Not only had it survived the regular daily perusal, but it also stayed through an entire WEEK of their half price sale which would put this baby at about $1.25!
So, I slipped it on over my clothes for a quick look-see at the fit and BAM! PERFECTION!!!! Like it was made for me and BONUS: a pegged hem (more fitted at the bottom). The price? $2! RIDICULOUS! Now, the shoes are another story. After hitting this same thrift store for a few weeks and coming up nil, this day, I found this GREAT pair of thick strapped black heels for $2! So that's right girlies.......There's not even $5 in this whole outfit!
And while I know it's somewhat tacky to talk about money, this is pretty much what I blog about:
You can be as poor as a church mouse and look like a million bucks!
(Can I get an AMEN!?!)
