the look for (a lot!) less

i was lamenting the fact that i had no good reason for dropping $625.00
on a flimsy lace mini dress...

...and then i realized i already had something similar, a dress i picked
up at a thrift shop
a couple of months ago. yeah!!!

  7. I agree I love yours better :) It feels that yours have more texture and it's lacier.

  12. Don't you love it when that happens?!?! Your thrifted dress is beautiful.

    I'm passing on a blogger award/question to you, if you'd be so kind to answer (because I love your blog): "What do you like best about your blog?" (or blogging in general).
    Can't wait to see the response!
