This where I thank Suburban Plumage for inviting me to this blog. For a while, I have been wanting to dress better, more fun (funner), and hit the thrift stores but I haven't had the motivation or the courage. I read Mighty Girl religiously and have always been inspired by her style and ability to find the coolest stuff at flea markets and thrift stores. The difference: She lives in San Francisco and I live in an unfashionable small city in the Midwest.
This dress is a find at a thrift store. How happy was I when I learned it was half off at the register! One surprising thing about this dress is that despite the synthetic material, it is really soft and comfortable. For a Frumptastic girl, that is important. I did not try it on in the store so this morning I worried that it would not actually fit. Thankfully, it does and it is, dare I say, flattering. Now I am ready to head back and perhaps snatch another dress I saw on the rack. Let's hope it is still there!
Ballet shoes: mossimo
Where: work, hairdresser, and Lowes.
I have to say that I feel really confident in my dress. I am sitting up taller and actually smiling!! Who does that these days?
