Welcome back to the Thursday Thrift Score, where I am proud to present my Little Black Dress. I've had a few LBDs over my lifetime - none quite so little as this one, I'm happy to say. This particular LBD is originally from White House Black Market, but I picked it up at a clothes swap I attended a little over a year ago. It was still a little snug at the time - I had to get my husband's help with the zipper - but that was 20ish pounds before I met my weight loss goal. Now it fits perfectly! I paired it with a $4 thrifted scarf/wrap (100% pashmina!) and those $4 comfy heels I keep showing you.
But there's more exciting news! Just this week, I went to this year's Fabulous Ladies Clothes Swap and brought home some more great stuff! Mostly refashionables, but a few pieces I can wear as is, I think. I'm working on laundering them all now, including the supposedly dry-clean-only stuff. When I get something for super cheap, I rarely see the point in paying to have it cleaned. The LBD above being one of the few exceptions. Anywho, this year's haul included:
6 pairs of pants
That's 32 pieces for just the $20 entry fee! I'm not counting all the clothes I donated as part of the cost. That was all stuff I didn't think I would ever get around to refashioning, so I felt no desire to hang on to it.
I'll be back in just a few days with another black & white refashion for Sunday Sew-Day!
