This week was a bonus week because Thursday was Splurge Sorority and Friday was Friday Night Book Club and I had the chance to wear some hand-me-down dresses with thrifted pieces.
Black high-low dress passed on from my sis. Jewelry from my closet.
I had actually worn this dress during the day with a woven belt and casual accessories. Though I neglected to take a photo, I was pleased at how easy it was to style the dress up or down. The racer-back fit is surprisingly flattering
on big boobs and arms without-muscle tone. I even found a bra in my drawer with straps that can cross since I am old school and don't like my bra straps showing. If you "like" my Facebook page, you will know the back-story behind these shoes...
The Shoes I Didn't Steal $9.10 Anne Ross, unworn
All from VV Boutiquemy sis.
Shoes from my closet, belt $2.10 from VV Boutique
Earrings by She Does Createlove red and blue together; throw pink in the mix and I am even happier. However, when I first put the dress on, I didn't love the fit.
Waistline, where are you?!
Fortunately, a belt saved the day! Add simple accessories like this coral bracelet from Cuba and I'm good to go! I also wore my short sleeve poppy cardi but was too busy talking books and snuggling babies to snap a shot.
Proof of my love of blue is my sapphire wedding ring!
There you have it. Now, a collective sigh of relief that I didn't subject the public to too-short age-inappropriate club wear.
I should really start a thrifting club...
