Another thing I have discovered since starting my thrifting project is a love for dresses. I have a few from VV Boutique and I love that paying less means better cost-per-wear and more freedom to wear them for the ordinary day rather than "saving" them for a special occasion. I find dresses easier to wear than shorts and crop pants, and if I can wear them gracefully with three little kids and working with preschoolers, anyone can. For the "Five Days Five Ways" challenge, I'm sharing the dress that taught me that thrift stores could provide current trendy pieces in great condition: my mustard high-low dress:
Just like with my orange pants, I didn't even have to try to find six different styles for this dress! I have worn it more than I've blogged it and I can think of several more styling possibilities just sitting here. If I wasn't in my jammies with dirty hair and yesterday's mascara, I would try them and snap some photos. You're welcome. You know what it would look awesome with? My small square scarf. I'm going to have to get my diva on and change my clothes three times a day!
