What I Wore: Say It Ain’t Sheer

IMG_4962

what I wore: dress – BILA, booties – forever21 by way of Plato’s Closet, bow necklace – mae’s, belt – thrifted,
So I found this dress at the goodwill and I knew it would be much cooler if the rather dowdy and wrinkled slip were removed. I did just that, wore another shorter slip and voila!

What I Wore: Halloween

*

For someone who loves clothes and dressing in general, Halloween is a veritable holiday. I always look forward to it and this year I found my costume in the form of this spandex dress early this summer. I knew I had to have the dress but honestly couldn’t foresee any appropriate occasion. Then…a light bulb: Morticia Addams (a la Anjelica Huston of course). I’d been devising and conniving for months but it didn’t really come together until late last week when I found the perfect suit for Ro’s Gomez. Ro will pretty much dress as whatever I suggest but he cannot be counted on to procure his own costume. You may find it hard to believe but I really don’t mind shopping for him.  It was as if the stars aligned, I was attempting to find a semi-suitable suit for him without him present which is next to impossible. I happened upon a gray Halston pinstripe ensemble at a local thrift store that was listed at $20. I thought it might be close enough to his size but I wasn’t sure and if it happened to be too small or too short, I would be out $20, which I never enjoy, even with a bargain. I got it home and it literally fit better than some of his tailored suits. I was in thrifted nirvana. We had a fabulous time and I had an excuse to look sullen in photos – which of course, I don’t need.

What I Wore: The $3 Dress of Dreams

what I wore: dress – thrifted leslie lucks (similar here), heels – report signature with added ribbon, lips – covergirl lip perfection hot
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.

What I Wore: Tropicana

I first tried on this beauty at grey dog a few weeks ago, I tried to resist but soon $ was burning a hole in my pocket and forced me back in the shop. Now, I’m so glad I went. What would my wardrobe have been without this adorable tropicana confection? It’s a vacation in dress form.
