Fashion Friday - Dress For Less


It has been a while since I added a "Dress for Less" post to my on-going series. Today is the perfect time! Why? Well, I just might have done a little clothing shopping, and I just might have done some damage! Damage to the space of my closet...But, no major damage was done to my wallet! How? Stick around to find out :)
 
While a lot of people were killing themselves over Black Friday Deals, or Grey Thursday Deals as they have been named (those deals that start on the evening of Thanksgiving Day), I stayed home and relaxed. In years past, yes, I had been crazy, waiting in lines for hours and shopping the mall at 3am...but I did not want to do that this year. In fact, I purposely did not look at any advertised deals because I did not want to be tempted. (And I know if I looked in the store ads, I would have been!) It was not until today, around noon, that I decided to go to only one store this Black Friday. It was to a local consignment store in my town. I love this place, especially on Black Friday because they hold their dollar sale! A good portion of the store are just a buck each! Dresses, pants, purses, shoes, tops, you name it! I scored some great items at amazing prices, let's check 'em out, shall we? 

 
Let's off with a couple great accessories! I got this beautiful scarf and purse for only $1 each! I love this blue color of the purse and as it turns out, it actually brings out the blue of the scarf! Now, I can be slightly germaphobic, so getting shoes that aren't brand new usually is not an option for me. However, if you look at the bottoms of these super cute shoes I got for only a buck, you can see they were maybe worn once, if ever...so ok, I can handle that!
 
 



 
Now, check out this super adorable dress I was able to pick up, also just for one dollar! It still has the store tags on it! (retail price $40). I will definitely be looking cute this summer in this one!
 
 
 

Now, blazers are a tricky thing for me. I am tall and have fairly broad shoulders, so sometimes I feel blazers aren't a good look for me. Like it just makes me look bulky. But they are back in style again...no, not those shoulder-padded fugly ones from the 80's...the more modern take on blazers. So, I figured I'll take my chances on this one. The buttons on it give it an edgy look. Just $1!
 
 
Next up is this cute top. I love leopard print! This one was hard to get a good picture of, but it flares out in the back a little and is very light and flowy. What totally made it for me were the cute little gold skull buttons! Luvs it!
 


 
I love a skirt with pockets! I really like the fun print on this one and it is super comfortable!
 
I got a few T-shirts because well, it is always nice to just throw on an easy T-shirt and go! Or in chilly weather, these are great as a layering piece. And for $1, how could I pass them up!?! Hollister and Abercrombie and Fitch? Yes, please!
 

 
 
I also love this top! It's really light material and would go well with so many things. Dress it up or dress it down! I think this would look great with a pair of jeans and black heels.
 
I like this top as well. I don't always like stuff sewn onto clothing, but this actually looks good! This will be a really nice summer shirt. I totally don't mind putting this away for a few months. When I can get a good deal, it's totally worth it.
 

 
This is a dress from Jennifer Lopez's clothing line. I just recently got a dress from her line and really liked that one...and this one is just as good! It hugs your curves in just the right places so it looks really good on! I like that the pattern, style and fit are all pretty unique. A nice addition to my dress collection!
 
 
 
 
 
Now, I most certainly did not show you everything I got from this dollar sale today...just a few to show you that it is easy to find nice clothing for super cheap! I am a mommy on a budget, but I still want to look good! I have figured out ways to dress top notch, for next to nothing!
 
Do you see anything here you like?
