Dressed to Thrill

I ran by my local Goodwill the other day just to check in and what did I find?  A treasure of a dress that was perfect for my date night happening later on that evening.  I grabbed this dress and ran right to the fitting room to try on and I was so elated that it fit just right.  I barely had it on and already had accessorized it in my head.  Do you do that too?  Identify an article of clothing and immediately have it accessorized from jewelry to footwear in a matter of seconds?  Well, I knew that since the print was so bold, I would keep the jewelry simple and I could not wait to wear my "Christmas" boots and leggings to round everything out.  I also could have worn jeans with this, but decided otherwise on the leggings.

My Christmas gift from Hubby

Yes, my sewing nook is coming together...another post to come.

Oh, in case you were wondering who took my pictures?  My favorite photographer was willing and able to help Mommy out.  Thanks, K!

 See, you don't always have to run out and pay full retail.  Thrifting takes time, but on occasion there is a jewel in the rough waiting to be plucked right away.  My husband and I went to a birthday party held at a favorite local restaurant in town and had the best time.  I highly recommend you dine here if you are ever in town.  I can not begin to tell you how many compliments I received from ladies I knew and ones I never met. 

 This dress will be on repeat and I might try to stretch it into Spring a bit.  Any suggestions on how I can style it going forward?

Fashion Item Friday!
