Thriftiness at it's best!

Went thrifting on Sunday and all I have to say is if I ever need a formal gown for anything, I'm buying it at a thrift store! Gorgeous gowns from $7.99 to $49.99!

I found this beauty at Goodwill for a mere $7.99 but the photos don't do it justice:

Alas, size 5

Oh my gosh, this dress was SUCH a liar, the tag says 12 but it SOOOO was not, I could not even zip it up. It was so pretty and girlie, I wanted it to be mine. Notice the Goodwill tag says "S" I guess they figured out that it wasn't labeled correctly.

I found this yellow pleated Christian Dior skirt for $2.99(!) I wasn't sure about it at first because of the length, it's not long and it's not short which I think could be awkward if you wear the wrong shoe. I paired it with my white Bill Blass men's shirt (rummage sale), two multi-strand glass necklaces and Steven for Steve Madden copper sandals. I like how the necklace looks metallic in the light. I cannot for the life of me remember where I found this belt, I know that it was cheap because I can tell that I am going to need a new one soon. I'd like to find an awesome replacement for this one, I've worn this one quite a bit.

*My hair* - I twist my hair and roll and pin the twists with bobby pins.

I saw this multicolor jacket and loved it at first glance! It reminded me of those J. Crew shorts everyone had from back in the day. (Or was it Ralph Lauren?) I imagine wearing it with the sleeves rolled up and a popped collar either with dark denim wide leg jeans and a tank, thrown over a long white tank dress and flats or a long shirt and slouchy denim pants rolled up.

But I was in for a surprise because when I tried it on I discovered a VEST with the jacket. Both pieces $3.99! I want to wear the vest separately with some white wide leg pants. LOVE!

And I'm thinking you should do some hairstyle updates on your posts! It's fab. I cut mine because of damage and have to start all over:(
