Today is different! I am submitting to the EBEW Nifty Thrifty challenge.
Here is what I wore for it:
White scarf - Gift from my Dad
White top - Outfit Outlet in Harwin
Tie Dye dress, worn as a skirt - Thrifted
Wedges - Payless
Dot flower brooch - Daiso
Hoops earrings - H&M
Necklace - Bought from my Mother in Law
Bracelet - Present from Hubby from Turkey
The first time I saw this item, it was on the skirt rack at Ross (dress for less). I immediately wanted it but the price tag was too high even for Ross ($30). Then, I saw the same item with different colors at TJMaxx but it was still overpriced for me. (If you are new to my blog, you have to understand that I am very cheap). I did look everywhere for the skirt, but also for a cheaper price.
Then a miracle happened during a trip to my (then) local Goodwill store. I was checking the dress rack searching for a maxi dress with sleeves (I used to be obsessed with those) when my eyes met this dress. I was thrilled. I tried it on and it fitted. I was even happier to discover that I could wear this dress as a skirt. However as much as I loved the dress, it took me a while to wear it. (I am making progress but) I am still very conscious of my butt. I find it too big and I am very reluctant to expose it which this dress does to perfection. Therefore I only wore it three times with a long white tee that covers at least half of the butt. It is the perfect summer staple because it is very airy. I did find some goodies thrifting but this dress is by far my fave (until I find something else).

How do you like me now?
