simple dress + thrift tip

DSC_9870 The easiest outfit to put together is one that consists of a dress!  Seriously, the days where I honestly don’t feel like creating an outfit, I quickly reach for a dress.  If you simply add some accessories and a pair of cute shoes, you can be set in no time.

DSC_9875  You may remember that I recently visited New York City.  Of course, I had to show some love to a few great thrift spots in the City.  I found this simple but absolutely flattering pink dress at Unique in the Bronx.  There are several locations in the City by the way.

DSC_9880 DSC_9881 I paid $8.99 for the dress and would probably have paid more.  The dress fits me like a glove, as though it was custom made for me.   Perfect length, perfect fit — and pockets!  Always winning when a dress has pockets.
A thrift tip here for my readers.  Try on everything that you purchase from a thrift store.   Case in point.  The label was removed from this dress.  I don’t know who made this dress (it’s not homemade) and had no clue what size the dress was.  But, always following my golden rule to try on everything, I was very happy to see just how beautiful it looked on me.  Glad I didn’t pass it up because of some missing tags.

DSC_9882 DSC_9887 As the dress is pretty simple, I wanted to jazz it up with my heels and accessories.  I choose my white, animal print heels that I got on sale at Victoria Secrets for $29.99.  They previously were used in styling some dressy jogging pants here.  These pumps are still proving to be one my best retail purchases as they are so versatile and a statement piece whenever I wear them.

DSC_9891 I also bought this cute Express floral clutch from Unique at the time I bought the dress.  The clutch was only $3.99.  I have a serious addiction to clutches as I think they simply add a glam to every outfit for me.

DSC_9892 Finishing the look are the yellow and gold drop earrings.  I went with these earrings from Charming Charlie (only $5 on clearance) because of my very short hair cut.  With this hair cut, I tend to want to wear larger earrings for some effect!  These earrings are bring that effect for me here.  Would you agree?
