Celebrate in Style
This February has been a month full of love and celebration. We shared the DIY love a few weeks ago, last week – new Thrift Town logo-wear online shop launched, and this week, we celebrated not only president’s day, but our 40th anniversary as a company! WHEW! (check out our FB page for fun pics from the Thrift Town crews for the anniversary.)
I don’t know about you, but I love when celebration requires getting all dressed up. I was asked to be a part of a special Arts Education Fundraiser event a couple weeks ago, and was going to have to be on stage in front of a big crowd of swanky arts patrons. I needed something new and glamorous to wear, but didn’t have a ton to spend. I headed to Thrift Town (cutting it close, the day before the event!) and for under $20 for the entire outfit, was able to pull off a super glam look. I got so many compliments – there’s no way anyone would have guessed it was secondhand, much less under $20.
The faux fur had black satin ribbons on each end,
so I crossed it at the waist and tied the ribbons in the back.
The Â layered vintage necklace was perfect for the retro look.
Every girl needs that perfect little black dress,
and let me tell you, this one is wonderful!
It was comfortable, a subtle pattern for interest,
can sit just a tad off the shoulder,Â and then there’s the back…
If I didn’t already love this dress, I couldn’t resist once I saw the back.
And what outfit would be complete without the perfect shoes?
I may have done a ridiculous little happy dance with jazz hands
in the aisle when I tried these on and they fit perfectly.
So here’s the breakdown, I wasn’t kidding – I really did get the whole outfit for under $20!
This outfit total: $16.96
Perfect little black dress: $2.99
Faux fur: $3.99
Vintage necklace: $1.99
Gold/Creme heels: $7.99
