The 5 dollar dress...

I know what's running through your mind..."that ain't no dress!!" Let me explain before you run off to another blog =) This last weekend we had our good friends/business partners in town Ryan and Susan.  The boys were sweet enough to let Sus and I stroll along 5th Ave. and get some shopping done, but I was having no luck what so ever!! Why is it that when you have money to spend you can't find anything you want?!! Anywho, the boys started getting antsy like all little boys do and Sus showed me this 5 dollar dress she was buying...I decided, what the heck I'll splurge without trying it on (always a big mistake for me).  Of course I get home, try it on and the bust is a little too snug (SHOCKER!!) I then realized with how this dress was cut I could simply fold the top under and I have a snazzy floral skirt!!  Instead of spending the 5 dollars on a train ride back into the city I figure this is still a heck of a deal for a "skinny day" dress and skirt.

I'm wearing: Dress/Skirt: (H&M), Blouse: (Old Navy), Sweater (H&M), Tights and belt (Forever21), Necklace (Vintage), Shoes (Dolce Vita)

P.S. I have extra respect for you ladies who use tripods!! I took a couple of these pictures myself before running inside and crying for hubs help =)


  1. This is awesome - love that you folded it over to create a beautiful skirt!!!

    Your style is great :)

    And the tripod isn't so bad, you get used to it!

  2. Hello - found your blog via Emerald's (Sunday Crossbow) and I love it. You have such wonderful style - I'm happily following along!
