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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
