Polka Dots + Pussy Bow Tie Blouse

This is officially the last week of winter and I am excited. Winter, you will NOT be missed. Somehow I managed to put on more weight this season so I am currently on gym life 6 days a week. I have to go back down to my pre-wedding weight because my clothes fit tight and I refuse to get rid of half of my closet. Stay tuned for my body transformation.

Outfit Details

I have to let you all know right now, this dress was .97 cents. How you may ask? At the Goodwill outlet. Yup! The Goodwill outlet is that place where few will go to find the best deals because the shopping setting is NOT the best. Imagine an empty CVS or Walgreen sized store empty with nothing but a cash register in front of the store with a giant weigh scale and a large bucket like rectangular tables filled with clothes to the very top; see here. Yes, its not glamours but that is where I have found some of my best finds. The dress is not in 100% perfect condition as the belt is showing some wear and tear but I’ll find a belt to replace it with. Since I was wearing this to work, I decided to add a blouse in the inside and that blouse happened to have a tie. I muted the accessories by keeping everything black but I added a red lip for a pop of color. The final look – polka dots with a 60’s vibe.

Dress: Vintage, Paul Michelle, Goodwill: .97 cents / Shirt: Forever 21, Goodwill: $4.00 / thrifted total: $4.97

Target Midi Dress

Hello Loves,

Today I bring you the midi dress I got at Target for $17.99 on clearance! Yes, ladies and gentlmen off the rack ( if we can say this considering target’s clothes are already cheap). I have to admit though, I did buy the dress about a size too big but it was the last one and I just couldn’t help myself; besides, it doesn’t fit too big so I’ll have it taken in. This is a very comfortable dress and I am surprised I did not see it before; either way, I am glad I didn’t because I got it for a very small amount. I also splurged on another few items while at Target. I was able to find the python pencil skirt from the Altuzarra collection for $10.58 and the sheer bow tie top for $8.99 ( score)!

Fierce!

The Outfit

I had been on the hunt for the perfect Midi dress and this one fit the bill. I love the material of the dress, it’s not “bandage” where it hugs every nook and cranny that you want to hide, it actually hugs your curves and hides the “love handles” lol. The print is the second reason why I wanted this dress. I love a good floral print and I love it even more if I can wear the print and/or piece year round. I accessorized with a pair of oxblood shoes because I wanted that color to stand out from the floral print and paired it with a nice blush bag. I kept the jewelry to a minimum because you don’t really much when the dress is this gorgeous.

Total cost of this outfit: $122.99
