What I Wore-A Bit of Lace

Last month I attended an engagement party and as I walked out the door I had a tee hee moment because I realized my whole ensemble cost me about $60 bucks!

(dress-thrifted from keiko lynn; bag-thrifted; shoes calvin klein via dsw; arm party-gifted; ring made her think)

I got sooooo many compliments on this dress and it cost me $2 (that’s TWO DOLLARS) at the Blogger Closet Raid over the summer. The dress was crafted by the flawless Keiko Lynn and was so marked down because there is a teeny discoloration under the lace overlay that you can’t see at all. I could not believe my luck!

I’m also wearing two of my most favorite accessories ever.

Thrifted clutch-I swear this bag goes with everything.

Calvin Klein Shoes…I add these shoes whenever I feel I need a dash of something unexpected.

My shoes and bag are really two things in my closet that are incredibly reliable accessories to make any of my outfits a little more interesting. How about you friends do you have accessories you lean on to make outfits a little more lively?

That’s right friends, dancing in my kitchen for you!

    No wonder you got so many compliments on the dress, it is stunning, and so fun. And for 2.00? You inspired me to finally start prowling around for vintage. I got a fun vintage leather skirt I am going to break out this weekend, hopefully I can get husband to snag some pics!

    You look amazing, what a great dress!

    Sorry for not having been around, I took a leave from the blogosphere for a month or so. But I’m back and enjoying catching up with all the posts I’ve missed. :)

    Looking forward to hearing more about the Goodwill stying event, it sounds great!

    Love the dancing pic :) and I love that this outfit cost you less than $60. The lace touch is really feminine and pretty. Accessories that give my outfits a little kick? hmmm I have to say this week I have been using my scarfs a lot, they add a pop of color and look incredibly stylish.
