Another part of my blog resolution is to show the world that not all thrift store merchandise requires alteration. Some pieces are perfectly awesome as is!
Take this dress for instance. I originally grabbed it off the rack for the material. I have a particular fondness for polka dots, and sheer fabric is a current obsession as well. Add in the black lace at the waist, and I was sold already. But wait! It's my size! I tried it on... and it fit like a glove!
It was marked at $9.99, which is more than I usually pay at thrift stores. But it looked brand new, and purple tags were buy-one-get-one-free that day. So this dress make have set me back $10, but my other purple tag piece (a leather skirt that will be refashioned) was absolutely free!
I slipped on some new-to-me black pumps - $3.99 and also looking brand new. Plus they've got super-duper padding in the soles - they're really squishy!
