what I wore: dress – vintage via cheap thrills, heels – steve madden
This dress has been around the block, as is the case with all good vintage. I first saw it in the window at Mae’s, (I was truly window shopping!) then my friend Angela wore it beautifully to a wedding (here) earlier this summer. A few weeks ago, my mom surprised me with it after my friends at Cheap Thrills told her I had my eye on it. I’d been saving it for a special occasion and our 1st anniversary was just that.
With similarities to the extreme couponer, the bargain shopper is always on the hunt for the absolute best find at the lowest possible price. Believe it or not this dress – complete with the adorable cinched waist, strong shoulders and open back – was $3.
So my extremely wonderful and talented friend recently started a subscription nail polish company. It’s similar to birchbox but you get full sizes. Basically, you pay a monthly fee and two full size polishes are sent to your door in up-to-the-minute current hues. I was so excited to get mine that I immediately put it on. This is a sparkling gunmetal called criminail. Check it out here —-> PISTOLpolish, follow twitter @PISTOLpolish or find it on facebook.
Also, I found this dress for $3 at a local thrift store. I love the details like the high back neck and the slit. The colors do date it but I don’t really mind, especially for the pretty price tag.
