For no known reason I have been drawn to dresses lately. Not the kind of dresses I could ever wear to work but the kind of frivolous dresses that I will have to come up with an excuse to wear. Nevertheless, I made this purchase on my current favorite store Thred Up. Thred Up is an online second hand store. I have bought a bunch of items from them over the past year and every piece I get is impeccable. And just in case used clothing isn't good enough they have tons of items that people have sent in that are new with tags. I get amazing quality brand name clothing at a steal! Love it. Plus they just started a thing where if you order from their app you get free return shipping. Risk free shopping. I am so in love! The dress arrives and when I try it on it's low cut in the best way and the black side panels are really flattering. I believe this dress will make it's way into my suitcase to Austin just in case I have an opportunity to show it off.
On the way to dinner last night my friends and I stumbled into a little Vintage Shop on Congress Street. There was a sign in the window that said 75% off all dresses. We went in and decided to mess around with trying on dresses just for the fun of it. We snapped a few photos and weren't actually thinking about buying anything. We never even looked at the price tags. When I decided I really liked what I tried on I asked the price. The owner had to go to the register to check and my mouth dropped open when she told me the price was $2.50. I was a more than a little bit thrilled. I bought two dresses and a delightful little ring for under $15. Amazing. And fun!
