A Thrifted Dress - Remixed

Hello Beauties!

Let's keep it real for a second...  Who else is on a budget besides me?  Since I'm on a budget, I try to get the most out of clothing I do purchase.  Because of this, I often shop the clearance racks and take advantage of thrifting.  Today I chose to remix a dress I thrifted last year for only $3.50.  Did she say $3.50?!  Yes, I did!

I originally wore the dress in December with boots to make it winter appropriate, but today, I swapped out the boots for platform sandals and a belt to accentuate my waist.





The Look

Dress:  Thrifted
Belt:  Thrifted
Earrings:  Haute37


How do you get the most out of your wardrobe?

God bless & stay fabellis!

  4. I am definitely on a budget with wedding planning so I try to make sure I can wear items three different ways before I purchase them now. Love this look! -Style4Curves

  13. You are so silly! What am I going to do with you? Thank you! Of course, we can go thrifting. It would be my pleasure! :-)

  14. LOL! Thanks Alisha. This dress naturally accentuates the waist anyway. A shift dress would be perfect on you.

    I am beginning to thrift shop more myself. That was a motivator for me to keep at it!
