Classy Dress - Thrifting Diva
Do you own a dress (or two) that completely makes you feel amazing?  I firmly believe that every woman should have a dress that makes you feel confident, beautiful, and super gorgeous.  This Zara dress simply slays and a dress that hits the nail on the head on creating a diva as soon as I slip it on.

Can I tell you, the moment I saw this Zara dress online, I instantly knew that this dress would be that perfect “girl, you are hot” dress.   It’s a dress that would make anyone feel like they were ready to take on the world.  It’s gorgeous, sexy, elegant and best of all, classy.   I love this cape dress.  The best part of the dress is the back (or lack of a back), of course.

The problem for me when I initially saw this classy dress online was the price tag.  Guys, you know me.  I really do believe that I am allergic to paying full price for anything…even when I absolutely love the piece.  The retail price was $150,  a price that I couldn’t bear paying.  However, I have told you before, and will tell you again.  Waiting for sales and clearances must be a part of your thrifting diva toolbox.

I waited, and waited, and stalked waited for this beautiful dress to go on sale.  I was finally rewarded for my patience.  My classy dress on sale was now $29.99, and trust me, I have never ordered something online so fast.  I couldn’t wait for it to come in the mail, and the day the box arrived, I tore it open like a child waiting for Christmas presents.  I tried it on immediately, and yes, I instantly felt like a diva!  This dress was everything.  The $30 price tag probably had a lot to do with my joy as well.

I opted to go with these blush pink Aldo heels.  I wanted the dress to do all the talking, so I didn’t want the focus to be transferred to my feet.  These Aldo pumps were simply a perfect match for this dress.  I got these heels as a birthday present from hubby a year ago and really love them.  However, be warned.  They are not entirely comfortable, so be careful where you choose to rock them.

I accessorized with this thrifted Express clutch.  I thrifted this cute clutch from AMVETs in San Diego for only $2.50.  It’s a great print, and went perfectly with this outfit.

    Found your blog when you posted on a local Facebook page. And I think maybe our kids go to school together – anyway, this dress is FABULOUS. Also would love to know where you get your hair cut locally if you care to share. It rocks.
