This was supposed to be my Wednesday posting, but I have been really busy this week. I found this look on Pinterest and I really liked it..but I forgot my clutch and bracelets that I wanted to wear with my look..when I took these pictures. I found all of these pieces at different times, but I was able to find the pieces to put this look together. I think that I was able to make the bumble bee look chic..

Every girl needs a "little black dress"..and it's always nice to find a great one for $3.99!
I have had this dress for years, and have worn it a million different ways, and have been complimented on it numerous times. Every time someone asks how much it was they are always shocked by my response. I decided not to wear this dress with heels, or anything too fancy..sometimes keeping it simple and classy is best...I like to let that little black dress speak for itself. Ladies..when you find that " little black dress" hold onto it, because there are only certain ones that will fit and flatter..and it is hard to find another!

80's Polka Dots With A Twist..

Vintage dress: $3.99 from Goodwill
Belt: $1.99
Necklace: .50
Bakers shoes: $20.00

Total look: $26.48

I found this old 80's dress at Goodwill last summer and it was too tight. This summer it was too big, so I added a belt to it to cinch it in, but I still need to have the shoulders stitched up a little to fit me better...which is why I kept my arms on my hips or held up, so I didn't show. I love this dress though..and what I love most is the color..and the polka dots! This is such a fun color to play with, and adding accessories just gives it more fun in color.

As you guys know, I started a new job a few weeks ago, and I am surrounded by clothing, and accessories everyday at work! bad..I know... However, I have been doing really well not buying anything unless I have money on my consigner account. This week, we got a gorgeous Coach purse (I thought) with matching accessories...I don't EVER buy expensive purses! However, I really loved this one..I came home and told my family that I really wanted this purse for my birthday, and that if I didn't get it a little early it would be gone! (My birthday is August, 19th) I would get my discount at work if I bought it. My family, being the loving family that they out their "sock change" and savings to buy me the Coach purse that I wanted for my birthday. My daughter..(Who NEVER gives money..and I mean NEVER, she sleeps with it..counts it every second.) she gave me all of her balled up dollars, and pennies to help pay for the purse..(tears)

Coach bag $71.00 (gift)
