Thrifted Mini Red Dress & Lace Up Heels

IMG_7587

Hey guys! It’s hump day…I love saying that…Lol. I wanted to share my thrifted $5 dress from Goodwill. Ladies don’t sleep on thrift stores. I know we all want the latest clothing and accessories out there but if you have to break the bank to buy it, then it just isn’t worth it…at least it isn’t to me.

I learned thrifting from my mother, I come from a immigrant family and when she arrived in the US, she had little to nothing to support her six children. She started doing house keeping for wealthy families, then on to nursing school and she thrifts more than ever these days. My mother always told us that some of the best quality items were in thrift stores. She would say they don’t make good furniture and linens like they use to and I couldn’t agree more.

I thrift because it’s fun! I usually go with the intentions of buying one or two items and walk out with several bags. I can’t go with anyone but my mother, it takes us forever to comb through the racks and I have to focus. When my son comes along he complains the entire time.

What I enjoy the most is finding something that I can dress up or down and make it look like it never came out a thrift store, that’s the key to thrifting. I buy household items all the time and paint, sand, and redecorate them with my own personal touch.

I thought the dress was sexy. I love red and skater dresses fit my pear shaped figure. It shows lots of legs and looks really good with these strappy shoes. What do you think? Do you thrift?

I thought this look would be great for date night. It’s not too much and you can throw on a belt and a few different types of accessories and make it your own. Enjoy the pictures and thanks as always for stopping by!

My Latest Find…

Found this African print dress at a local vending expo and really loved the color combination and pattern.

I’m not sure that I like the bright orange pleated neckline, while it does add a little character to the dress, I don’t know that I wont remove it.

It’s also a bit too long, I may shorten the length and remove the orange neckline eventually….not sure but I love this color scheme 😉
