How do you like my $5.00 Calvin Klein dress?
I test drove it today at a legal seminar I volunteer at a few times a year. I plan to wear it for my first day of training at my new job. When I asked about dress code, the human resources contact suggested business professional, so I'm considering wearing this dress with a black tailored blazer. What do you think? Does that sound 'business professional' enough?
There will be 15 people in our cohort of incumbents at the Department of Child Services; I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and starting this new career venture.
For the legal seminar today, I tossed on this white knit cardi. The lecture rooms tend to get cold. I like the way the wind is shipping the bottom of the cardigan.
Do you recognize this Lia Sophia necklace? Its the 'Glaminator' necklace I wore with my dance showcase costume a couple of weeks ago. Its edgy but it I really like it with this dress and got lots of compliments on it.
Because the necklace is so bold, I wore simple earrings that compliment but don't detract from the necklace.
A different way to mix patterns; strips and a floral necklace. Lia Sophia's full bloom necklace. For all of the hesitation I had about buying this necklace...I'm really happy that I did. It screams spring and perks up the darker colors that I'm still wearing during this odd weather transition.
And now for the thrift haul!
I am so excited about this thrifted dress! It cost $10.00 at Goodwill and it didn't have a loose thread or a spot. It fit me perfectly, no alterations needed. It drapes so beautifully and looks old Hollywood glam!
I love the hemline; this is so different from my typical style...but it was gorgeous and very flattering. I have no idea what to wear on top! Any ideas?
......I know this looks incredibly bland and boring, but its super flattering and will work with many of the things I already have.
And...ta da! My favorite find; this black evening dress for $10.00! Another Goodwill gem in pristine condition. This is another old Hollywood glam inspired dress. I hope to wear it at some of the evening dinner events at the June ballroom competition. It fit me like a dream....
I purchased one more dress while thrifting....an adorable Max studio dress that I am wearing to tomorrow's dance lesson and party...can't wait to wear my little $5.00 treasure!
Enjoy your weekend!
