Wearables: 2013 Green & White Easter Dress

Hey ya’ll!
I know what you’re thinking…. “Two posts in a couple of days?! What is this?!” ;)
I wanted to show ya’ll the dress I wore for Easter this year (and wore again last Sunday).
I really like the dress; it’s fairly comfortable, it’s of nice quality, it’s cute and I got a steal-of-a-deal on it. I found the dress
like-new at my local Goodwill thrift store. I’m pretty sure it still had the tags on it and the tag said it was retailed at about $50, but truthfully, I can’t remember. Either way I got a good deal on it seeming how it was under 10 bucks for it. :D
I *love* finding deals, so I highly recommend you looking at your local thrift store for some good deals. Find out when they mark down the clothes and go then.
I know Goodwill marks down clothes weekly by their tag color.
I’m not sure if each individual Goodwill store has a different day of the week in which they choose to change the “color of the week”, but I’m sure if you ask a teller they would be glad to tell you.
The Salvation Army thrift stores have a 50% off sale on clothes once a week. I’ve heard from different places that the sale on is on Wednesdays and I’ve also heard Fridays. It probably depends on the store. I haven’t been to one in a while to confirm which it is (although I think my local store does their sale on Wednesdays) so I would recommend you checking with your local store before you get your shopping cart full. ;)
 I can’t wait to check out their sales sometime soon! :) Plus the money is going to a good cause so that’s just the cherry on top! ;)
 I’ve also heard that at Union Mission thrift stores you can get a brown paper bag full of clothes for $5 each on sale dates.
I would encourage you to check them out too! :)

So without further ado, here’s my deal:

There’s probably only one thing I don’t like about this dress, I don’t know if it was made for a shorter person or what, but it’s like where your hips are supposed to go-that part falls too high on me so it’s more like at my waist…. I thought about sewing it to try and fix it, but I’m too afraid I’ll mess it up. Lol
Maybe one day I’ll get the gall up to try it. ;)


I paired the dress with my black heals I got for prom last year.
Black shoes go with everything right?! ;)

Dress: Goodwill >$10
Necklace: Goodwill, $1.25
Shoes: Payless

Shout out to my wonderful brother that was willing to take the pictures of me in the last couple of posts. Thanks! I appreciate it! :D

So, tell me, what did your Easter outfit consist of?
Did you wear something very fancy? Or did you go for more of the casual style?

Can’t wait to hear from you!
Many blessings,
